Mumbai: Kings XI Punjab stand-in captain David Hussey on Sunday, said that the run-out of Mumbai Indians stumper Dinesh Karthik to end a 75-run partnership with James Franklin turned their IPL match here in their favour.
"I thought Dinesh Karthik's run out changed the game. He's a quality player and someone who I think will play a lot for India in the future. When he was going strong I thought 180 Mumbai Indians would raise 180. To restrict them to 163 from that stage was a fantastic effort from our bowlers," said Hussey after KXIP's six-wicket victory.
Karthik, who looked good when scoring 35 in 20 balls, was run out while going for a second run following a misunderstanding with Franklin, who made 79 in 51 balls. The third wicket duo put on 75 runs off only 36 balls before the partnership was broken.
