7 May 2016 : The three consecutive defeats of the Gujrat Lions has clearly disappointed Gujarat Lions’ all-rounder Dwayne Bravo. Bravo said that the reason for the defeat of the team was the inability to adapt to different conditions.
In the last match played, the Gujrat Lions lost to Sunrisers Hyderabad by five wickets.
Bravo however complimented Bhuvneshwar Kumar of Sunrisers Hyderabad for his exceptional bowling. He also praised Ashish Nehra for his performance.
Bravo attributed his team’s defeat to the conditions which are a challenge for batting. In a statement to media persons, Bravo said that as international players it was difficult for them to adapt to changing conditions.
Replying to a query on Pradeep Sangwan’s performance, Bravo said Sangwan was a good bowler and it was not right to judge him based on a couple of below the mark performances.
Reflecting at the previous IPL games played in Hyderabad, Bravo said that the venue was a high scoring one.
Bravo added that it was not advisable to keep trying to get 180-190 as it was not going to be possible always. What is important is that the batters adjust quickly to situations.
