“All of the preparation, all of the effort. It was a tough loss to the Gujarat Titans, but the guys got back up and came back strong. The entire bowling unit performed admirably. Prasidh deserves special mention.”

“We had 16 to defend in the previous game, and Miller had three sixes. It can have a significant impact on confidence. But he was honest, and he was fantastic in the nets. Trent Boult followed. And his mother, Obed McCoy, has been quite ill at home, but he has been able to put that aside. “She’s doing well,” Kumar Sangakkara said.

Kumar Sangakkara saw Jos Buttler’s reemergence as a T20 batsman, who smashed four centuries this season. He instilled self-belief belief in him and enabled him to be a great team player, in which he was been seen heading to bowlers for on-field advice on circumstances.
