There are areas of concern: Lions coach Hodge

Gujarat Lions coach Brad Hodge said there were quite a few “areas of concern” in the side and was particularly miffed with the tendency of his spinners to bowl no balls at crucial junctures. The Lions lost their second successive game last night, against Delhi Daredevils, though they continue to top the points table.

“If you are 3 for 20, losing three of your best batters upfront, you’re going to be in trouble. Same (as) what happened the last game,” Hodge said.

“In the last game against Kings, Axar (Patel) took a hat-trick. Couple of balls didn’t even turn. We lost three wickets in an over. And again (today), three wickets in seven balls with three of our best batters. Wickets in powerplay...something that we need to look at,” the Aussie said after Lions’ eight-wicket defeat at home. Hodge was peeved at how no balls cost his side dear.

“Unforgivable, unforgivable” he said.
