Our match against the Royal Challengers Bengaluru was a real nail-biter, and sadly, the Punjab Kings ended up on the losing side. It was a tough blow for us, but amidst the disappointment, there was one shining star: Harpreet Brar. He had an incredible performance, grabbing 2 wickets while only giving away 13 runs. His exceptional play kept our hopes alive throughout the game.

Speaking about his performance, Brar said  "I tried to dry up the runs as much as possible and I picked up two wickets in the process as well. I was trying to bowl as many dot balls as possible to create pressure on the batters. The dot balls give you wickets in the end."

It was a different pitch at the M. Chinnaswamy stadium and Brar said that the bowlers got a bit of help from the pitch. He stated "It's all about bowling on the right lengths in T20 cricket. I look to bowl a little far away from the batters' hitting arc. We got a bit of help from the wicket in Bengaluru and it was not easy to strike the ball."

The left-arm spinner further added "We assessed the wicket well while we were batting and we found out that it was better to bowl on the stumps on that pitch. I just looked to focus on bowling at good lines and lengths during the game."

It was a tough game but we now move on to Lucknow to face the Super Giants on Saturday. We are a confident unit and we look forward to getting back to winning ways in that game.
