Not finishing a game after being set is a crime: Pathan

Friday, April 21, 2017

Kolkata: Kolkata Knight Riders all-rounder Yusuf Pathan termed his dismissal against Delhi Daredevils after playing a good knock as a "crime" as he feels that he should have finished the game.

"I should have finished the game. After batting so well, if I cannot finish, then it's a crime according to me. Next time, I will try to finish the match with one or two overs to spare," Yusuf told reporters on the eve of their match against Gujarat Lions.

From being 21/3 inside three overs, Pandey (69 not out) and Yusuf (59) anchored their 169 chase with a  110-run stand off just 72 balls for the fourth wicket.

"In this competition, anything can happen. If a set batsmen gets out, it's never easy for a new batsman and you struggle. I regret that I could not finish the game." The in-form KKR who are on a three-match winning run will face star studded Royal Challengers Bangalore in three days' time and Yusuf said it was a treat to watch Virat Kohli and Chris Gayle in their scintillating 122-run opening stand.
