Mohali: Pune Warriors India skipper Aaron Finch was heartbroken after his side lost a close match against the Kings XI Punjab, here on Sunday. The hosts won the clash by 7 wickets with a ball to spare.

Finch, who earlier led from the front hammering a 42-ball 64 to help Pune reach a challenging 185 for 4, said the loss was hard to digest after a spirited batting effort.

"Hats off to Punjab batsmen, the way they went about their chase. We probably had the game under control till about the 18th over. But it's tough for bowlers when you have got a big-hitter like David Miller at the crease. The loss is a bitter one to swallow for us," he said at the post-match presentation ceremony at the PCA stadium.
