Hyderabad: It was madness. That was how Kings XI Punjab captain Adam Gilchrist described his team losing four wickets in four balls to end up with a low total against Sunrisers Hyderabad, who won the match by five wickets here on Friday night.

Gilchrist believes this was the turning point and his team very much lost the match there. "We were well-positioned to get ourselves up for about 140. That was the absolute turning point of the match madness."

The Australian feels it was a challenging wicket to bat on as it was not consistent and was turning up and down. "But it was not a shocking wicket by any stretch. It was a challenging wicket to bat on but we were well positioned to get ourselves to 140 or may be 150 with one good over but we just shot ourselves in the foot."
