Former England National Cricket Team captain Kevin Pietersen has said that the Gujarat Titans (GT), after facing consecutive defeats, need to play their best game to get back to winning ways.
In the 57th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 KL Rahul-led Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) will lock horns with Hardik Pandya-led Gujarat Titans (GT) at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune on, Tuesday, May 10.
Gujarat Titans will be heading into the match with a lot less momentum than Lucknow Super Giants as they have suffered two consecutive defeats, the first one came against Mumbai Indians by 5 runs and the second one came against Punjab Kings by 8 wickets.
When you lose a nail-biter, the negativity begins to seep into the dressing room – Kevin Pietersen
Speaking to Star Sports, Pietersen said that when a team loses a nail-biting encounter like Gujarat Titans the negativity begins to enter the dressing room. He added that Gujarat Titans need to bounce back strong.
“At the start of the tournament I had said this, they wouldn’t have thought they would be in this position, but they build this position and the negative thoughts that they may have had six weeks ago.
“Well I can tell you something right now, you lose a nail-biter like that, you lose a game because of poor decision, and the negativity begins to seep into the dressing room because you start thinking that at the big periods in the game are we not getting it right or are we getting it wrong. You need to play your best cricket now and win games,” he said.
