first_imgStill their batting looks unsettled with Miller and Glenn Still their batting looks unsettled with Miller and Glenn Maxwell yet to fire but Abbott backed the hardhitting duo and its just a matter of time. “They both know that they havent been in the greatest of forms. It hasnt come through because of a lack of practice, it is just unfortunate that they have fallen into a form like this in a crucial part of the tournament. “I am sure they are going to come alright and we have seen glimpses of it. Miller has batted nicely and he has shown glimpses of it here and there. Maxwell has got that fifty obviously finishing a game for us at home. I think they will come right and hopefully the second half will see some better results from them.” Against Gujarat Lions they were bundled out for a modest 154 in 19.5 overs but it was left-arm spinner Axar Patel, who claimed the seasons first hat-trick en route to his match-winning 4/21 to turn the match around. “A lot of people did not realise that it was a hattrick. It took a while to get there – four overs apart. It was excellent bowling from Axar. He put us into a great winning position. “We have been waiting for a bowling performance like that. We have not been up to the mark in the first couple of games and it has taken a bit longer to get into a rhythm and get the combinations right. Hopefully, we will take this form forward in the second half of the competition.” With the IPL being the story of the chasers so far, Abbott felt that the teams batting first are a bit more conservative. “They setup their innings better in the phase of twenty overs. While chasing it is almost as if they are coming in and have a total in mind and they just want to get there as quickly as possible. “You cant really put a finger on it. Probably you feel batting first you hold up a bit while batting second you seem to let go and chase it down.” PTI TAP KHS KHSadvertisementlast_img read more

Now it was 50:50.”We had our moments (on Thursday) and caused them completely different problems to the games before.”Last year the Champions League (quarter-final) game at home when we won 3-0 it was a brilliant game but we were under pressure in a lot of moments.”I don’t know if we had more than four shots on target but we were quite clinical that day.”That’s how you have to play against City, in the moment when you get the ball you have to make the best of it.”This game was different and that is an important step for us.
