It might have been different if Porel had caught the ball, says Amre

Abishek Porel was included in DC's strategy to be an impact player during their match against Punjab Kings, and his contribution to the victory led them to 174/9 off 10 balls, which gave them a fighting chance. In spite of his efforts, DC was unable to win the match despite his efforts. Porel’s innings showcased his talent and potential for the future.

It was evident during our preparations and games that he struck well. That’s where we as a coaching unit and captain were keen to have par runs on the field in this match. This is said Pravin Amre, DC’s assistant coach, praising Porel’s performance.

The DC bowlers had to defend Porel's shots against Harshal Patel's slower deliveries in the final over. However, DC’s bowlers struggled to contain the Kings’ batsmen, leading to their defeat despite Porel’s heroics. Dropped catches and injuries further hampered DC’s win chances. Ishant Sharma’s ankle injury led to DC being bowler short, while dropped catches by fielders added to their woes. The team acknowledged the missed opportunities but praised Porel for his exceptional innings.

As a result of DC's decision to include four overseas batters in its lineup, Prithvi Shaw was able to enter the lineup as an opener. As a result of Anrich Nortje's absence, assistant coach Amre explained that it was a result of Shaw's absence and that Shaw could be included in future matches. As of now, Nortje is expected to be part of the team when they take on the Rajasthan Royals in their next game.

Overall, DC showed promise with their batting performance, especially with Porel’s explosive innings. However, their bowling unit struggled to contain the opposition, leading to their loss to the Punjab Kings. The team will reevaluate their strategy for the upcoming matches, considering key players like Nortje and Shaw.
