As Delhi Daredevils slumped to an eight-wicket loss to Kolkata Knight Riders at the Feroze Shah Kotla here, their third straight and sixth loss overall, Parnell said: "Batting second was easier due to the dew. It is difficult to defend here."
Delhi captain Kevin Pietersen, though, had won the toss and elected to bat. Asked for the reason behind the Daredevils' decision to bat first, Parnell said: "I don't know. You need to ask coach Gary (Kirsten)."
