Odean Smith, who took four wickets in the
match against Mumbai Indians(MI), said it was a 'coincidence' for him to defend 22 runs in the
last over. Earlier in the match against Gujarat Titans(GT), Smith had to defend 19 runs in the
penultimate over, but Punjab Kings(PBKS) lost.
Smith told the media that he was just thinking how strange it was that he was in the same
circumstance (against Gujarat Titans). But, tonight, he backed himself up. He assumed that going
straight down the ground or on the leg-side would be difficult for him (Unadkat).
Smith credited his achievement to the support he had from Mayank Agarwal, the coach, and the
rest of the team's management. He stated that they have been quite inspiring. They have aided
him mentally in being able to enter this game and perform as well as he has today. They have
been quite beneficial to him and he would like to express his gratitude to the coach.
The 25-year-old Jamaican also commented that Captain Mayank has been incredible. He has always
come to Smith and informed him that no matter what happens, he'll always be there for him. It is
simply up to him to believe that he can achieve it since the entire team believes in
