Overs By Khaleel Ahmed And Kuldeep Yadav Made The Difference: Irfan Pathan On PBKS Defeat

While speaking on Star Sports about the PBKS vs DC encounter of IPL 2023, former left-arm pacer Irfan Pathan said that Kuldeep Yadav and Khaleel Ahmed changed the game with their good spells.

“The six overs bowled by Khaleel Ahmed and Kuldeep Yadav made the difference on the Dharamshala track. But PBKS team management’s faulty strategies are also to be blamed. Those errors cost them dearly,” said Irfan Pathan.

Pathan, who played for both Punjab Kings (then Kings XI Punjab) and Delhi Capitals in the past in IPL, also mentioned that Royal Challengers Bangalore have benefitted from PBKS’ loss to DC.

“RCB are in an advantageous position with Punjab Kings’ loss. MI will also fancy their chances but their fate will also hinge on the result of the match between CSK and DC,” Irfan Pathan added.

Punjab Kings, Rajasthan Royals, Kolkata Knight Riders, and Royal Challengers Bangalore have 12 points each. However, RCB have 2 games left while the others have only 1 match left. Mumbai Indians account for 14 points but they have just one game left to play in IPL 2023. Only Gujarat Titans have qualified for IPL 2023 playoffs with 18 points so far.
