“First you plan a certain way and then you see the result on the pitch. KKR decided that against RCB, they’d use their spinners more. The spinners went and executed. It’s not just the captain, but you have to have bowlers of a high calibre.
“The one thing we’ve seen this evening is that KKR’s strength lies in their spin bowling. They leave an impact on a game with their bowling in favourable conditions,”
