said McCullum, "To be honest, I was happy with the intention of the batsmen, but luck didn’t favor us, due to which we lost, because you support the fact that your extra batsmen are playing better and you are batting a longer one. You obviously don’t expect to be out."
Despite the reversal of the attacking approach, McCullum wants his team to continue with the aggressive approach. They said, "I want us to keep the attacking game in the team because last year this team did well and I think you know how we have set up our team with the auction, the players we have picked, They are suitable for him."
Kolkata bowlers performed extremely well in taking the match against Bengaluru till the last over. But during his 128-run defense, his star all-rounder Andre Russell’s shoulder trouble started again, meaning he could not meet his quota of overs. Asked about the same, McCullum said that giving Russell another over with the ball was too risky. Eventually, Russell bowled the final over, but Dinesh Karthik chased down the target with back-to-back boundaries.
