"A Lot Of Positives For Us This Season....": PBKS Skipper Curran Following Win Over RR

Guwahati (Assam) [India]: Following his side's win over Rajasthan Royals (RR), Punjab Kings (PBKS) skipper Sam Curran said he enjoyed captaining the team this season, and there are plenty of positives for the side this season.

Despite qualifying for the playoffs, Rajasthan Royals (RR) continued a downward spiral in momentum as a fine bowling performance by Punjab Kings (PBKS) and a fighting half-century by skipper Sam Curran handed them a five-wicket loss at Guwahati on Wednesday in their Indian Premier League (IPL) match.

"I thought we bowled really well as a group. We had a lot of pride to play for. The way the guys came together... Nathan Ellis, the way he played his first game, was excellent. Great character from the team. I have thoroughly enjoyed the season, and thoroughly enjoyed captaining. A lots of positives for us this season. The chase against KKR (of 262 runs).

Shashank Singh has been amazing, Ashutosh, in his debut season. Harshal and Arshdeep have done well as well," said Curran.

Speaking on the run-chase and the season's performance, Curran said, "We (Curran and Jitesh Sharma) were trying to build a partnership. Jitesh came in and got in nicely. We did not need too many risks--just a couple of sixes. It was quite frustrating to leave (for the Pakistan series on May 22), but I was obviously excited about the (T20) World Cup.

Hindsight's a wonderful thing. If we win our next game, we finish with 12 points. So I feel this team was close to something, but it was not meant to be. Over the next few seasons, if we can keep some of the really good players, we can get better."
