IPL 2018: We were 10-12 runs short, says Dinesh Karthik

KKR managed a victory at home ground

Chasing a target of 192 for victory, Kings XI reached 96 for no loss in just 8.2 overs when rain interrupted proceedings and play was halted for more than an hour. Karthik stated that he wanted the current Duckworth-Lewis-Stern (DLS) system, which is used when matches are shortened, to be replaced by the Jaydevan (VJD) method, which follows a different method to calculate the revised target in the case of a truncated game. Karthik enquired before adding, "It's been proven that it's a really good method".

"So it is hard for me to predict what would have happened, but, yes it was interesting to see the change in required run rate for Kings XI Punjab after the play resumed".

Speaking at the post-match media conference, he said: "When rain stopped play, KXIP needed about eight runs an over".

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

"Yes, KL (Rahul) and Chris (Gayle) batted beautifully, but if we got two wickets, we could have put them under pressure. I'm sure [DLS] has been something people are still trying to figure out". But only for IPL we use the DLS.

The VJD method was used in the domestic limited overs matches this season. But I think we had a decent total on board but we didn't bowl well enough. "We are in the middle of the tournament where we are just dilly-dallying so it's important to pick ourselves up and keep getting better".

"I have always thought that VJD is an Indian method and it is an Indian domestic tournament, so why not think about it in the future?" Gautam Gambhir, Delhi Daredevils' captain, had said a target of 71 in six overs was "tough" on his team following their rain-marred game against Rajasthan Royals in Jaipur on April 11.

"We were very much happy with the first innings". During a Nokia ad shoot, the players got in a lighter mood and had a gala time pulling each other's leg. All-rounder Andre Russell is known to be a prankster and he is seen imitating skipper Dinesh Karthik's walk back to the pavilion and also Robin Uthappa's batting style. But then in six overs 71 was tough.
