‘We haven’t played enough good cricket’: Hardik Pandya

On Saturday, Kolkata Knight Riders secured their place in the IPL playoffs with an 18-run triumph over the Mumbai Indians. The match, initially delayed by rain, was shortened to a 16-overs-per-side encounter. Choosing to bat in the rain-affected match, KKR posted a competitive total of 157 for 7, fueled by Venkatesh Iyer’s explosive innings of 42 runs from just 21 deliveries.
