A happy Kings XI Punjab captain George Bailey on Sunday praised his bowlers for an outstanding performance against the Mumbai Indians but cautioned the boys they needed to be consistent in the grueling Indian Premier League.
After a 18-run win over Mumbai at the Wankhede, Bailey gave due credit to Harbhajan whose lusty hitting during a 24-ball 64 made the match closer than what it had looked at one stage.
“It got a little hairy there at the end. T20, that is what happens,” said Bailey at the post match presentation ceremony.
“I was happy with the bowling and we deserved to win as our bowling was outstanding, not to take anything away from Bhajji, though. He is a beautiful striker,” the Australian said.
It was double delight for Bailey, who also bagged the man of the match award after plundering 61 of 32 deliveries.
“It is a long race and we have to be consistent,” he said.
