Concerned with the team's bowling in the death overs, Pune Warriors spinner Rahul Sharma said that his side gave away 20 runs extra in their game against Chennai Super Kings, which they lost by 37 runs to slump to their eighth defeat in the ongoing Indian Premier League.

"We have been bowling well, but things are going a bit wrong in the death since the last three-four games. And the batting is also not clicking. The wicket was good for batting on Tuesday and we got a decent start but loss of three-four quick wickets pulled us back," Rahul said after last night's game.

Considering Chennai's strong batting line-up, the offie said Pune's plan was not to provide room to the opposition batsmen and wanted to restrict them below the 150-run mark.
