‘Manan has started building innings’

Kings XI Punjab captain David Miller was full of praise for young opener Manan Vohra, whom he feels has started to focus on building his innings.

Manan was adjudged Man of the Match for his 51 against Pune Supergiants and he has also contributed 30 plus scores in the first two matches for KXIP.

“I think he (Manan) is starting to construct his innings really well. He has been off to great starts in the past also. He even did well two years ago. I think for him, it is important to keep learning and to try and contribute a bit more in the middle overs. It was good for him to have a knock like that. Manan has a lot of talent and bright future ahead of him,” Miller said after the match. While he has only scored 31 runs in 3 innings, Miller feels that he will stick to his gameplan as long as he feels that it will work for him. “If that had gone for a six, I would have continued to take them down. I will keep working hard, thinking about the right things which I normally do and I will stick to whatever works for me,” he said. When asked whether pressure of captaincy getting tohim, he replied: “There’s a lot of think about when it comes to captaincy. You learn that early in the role. Like I said, going out to bat, I would like to think the same things. Do all the normal things that I normally do. I want to work hard and hopefully in the next two or three games I can come up with a match-winning innings,” he said.
