CricketRicky Ponting terms Delhi Capitals defeat vs KKR 'Embarrassing, Unacceptable'

Srinagar: Being straight and honest, Delhi Capitals head coach Ricky Ponting termed his sides one sided defeat vs KKR as ‘Embarrassing, Unacceptable’.

Kolkata Knight Riders destroyed Delhi Capitals’ bowlers in their IPL 2024 fixture in Vizag, on Wednesday. DC bowlers were tortured as KKR ended up posting 272/7 in 20 overs, which is also the second-highest total in IPL history.

Speaking after the match, DC head coach Ricky Ponting lashed out at his team in a bombshell statement. “It’s pretty hard to assess right now. I was almost embarrassed with that first-half of the game today, to concede that many runs and 17 wides. It took us two hours as well to bowl our overs. We are two overs behind again, so the guys who bowl the last two overs have four players outside the circle,” he said.

“There are a lot of things that happened today in this game that are unacceptable. A lot of things we will talk about as a group tonight, we will have to fix immediately to go forward in this tournament. So there will be some good open discussions in the changing room tonight for sure,” he further added.

Chasing 273, DC were bowled out for 166 in 17.2 overs, despite half-centuries from Rishabh Pant (55) and Tristan Stubbs (54). For KKR’s bowling department, Vaibhav Arora and Varun Chakravarthy took three wickets each respectively.
