IPL 2018: Dinesh Karthik not happy with D/L method

22 April, 2018, 20:00 | Author: Heidi Alvarez
  • Dinesh Karthik-led Kolkata Knight Riders were beaten by Kings XI Punjab by nine wickets on Saturday

"That was little surprising, because ideally if it would have been a 20-over game, they would have needed eight an over".

Kolkata Knight Riders skipper Dinesh Karthik has voiced his support for the Jaydevan (VJD) method in place of the now used Duckworth-Lewis-Stern (DLS) for matches affected by rain.

"Yes, KL (Rahul) and Chris (Gayle) batted beautifully, but if we got two wickets, we could have put them under pressure". I didn't understand that part, but I'm sure Duckworth-Lewis has been something that people are trying to figure out what it is. However, Karthik didn't shy away from expressing his reservations about the DLS system, suggesting that the VJD system developed by V Jayadevan be implemented in the Indian Premier League instead.

"I have always thought that since the VJD is used in Indian domestic tournaments, why not think about it for the IPL? Why not think about VJD here and promote it in IPL?" asked Karthik, adding that the DLS method had a lot of shortcomings. It was interesting that when play was stopped, they needed around eight runs an over but when it resumed it became run-a-ball.

When the players went in at 6:41pm, KXIP, chasing 192, were 96/0 after 8.2 overs.

Five takeaways from Saturday's spring games
After 15 days, to me, with some of the guys, that's very disappointing, but it's probably a good indication of who they are. It's easy to stand out there with your chest stuck out and pretend you're somebody that you're not.

Admitting that run-making became a bit slow towards the end, the KKR captain said the team was let down by the bowlers.

Speaking about importance of the toss, which was lost by Karthik, the Knight skipper said: "See if we had won the toss, we would bowled first again so that might have helped". "It was a handsome wicket to bat on, then 150-odd for 5 in 18 overs, we thought we could contain them to 170 and it was chase-able, especially with dew coming in later on".

The latter however was dismissed by Sunil Narine at 60 runs from 27 balls, by which time Punjab had the match in its grasp. The 31-year-old from Magura, Jessore has picked up 5 wickets in as many matches for SRH. Karthik said at the post match press conference. "We've used it in domestic cricket and only for the IPL we seem to use Duckworth-Lewis, so why not think about VJD even here?"

"Honestly, I have spoken to Russell, but he looks okay for now".
