Kolkata Knight Riders’ coach Trevor Bayliss reckoned his boys fought hard, chasing a  mammoth score of 201 runs.  “I must say that we were fantastic on the run chase. Bisla did a good job. Sometimes it happens that at the end we did not have a positive result. In the middle overs we got only one or two or three runs or something like that. To look back when you are chasing two hundred and having the chance to win in  the last over was a fantastic effort. I think the boys can walk away from this game with their heads high,’’ he opined.

He added that his team has still chance to qualify for the knock- outs. “I think we got to win about six of the remaining matches. Last year, I think we won six on the  trot. We can play the rest of the games in the fashion that we adopted in our last  game. I think we did not play to that level in the first few games. The boys can take lot of  positive from this match. They will play with the same confidence like the way they  played today,’’ said Bayliss.

Their decision to put CSK in after winning the toss also drew flak. But he defended, “Watching some of the games played at Chennai on television we thought the wickets played lot better than last year. CSK  is chasing well.”
