Harpreet Brar fetched attention after his all-round show.
“We were preparing Brar. On a pitch like this, we felt like we needed a finger spinner who could hit hard lengths. He did exactly that and batted really well in the end as well. I am young myself, but I have been trying to speak to the boys and pass on whatever experience I have of IPL and international cricket. They are blessed with enormous talent and we have to prepare them for the situations and the pressures they’d face in the middle as the captain and the support staff. Really makes me and the support staff very happy.”, KL Rahul in the post-match presentation.
“Kohli. Maxwell. And AB. Wow. Wow. Wow. Add to that the crucial runs with the bat. Harpreet Brar ko dekhna chahenge Baar-Baar”, Akash Chopra tweeted.
