IPL 2017: Difficult for Batsmen to Perform Consistently in T20s, Says Manan Vohra

Mohali: Kings XI Punjab's Manan Vohra, who struck a 95-run knock against Sunrisers Hyderabad in a losing cause, has said it is a tall order for any batsman to be consistent in the Twenty20 format.

"I think it is a lot because we don't have much time to focus. We don't have much balls to get our eye in. So, it's very important that we just keep backing ourselves in whatever situation we are in. It is very difficult to maintain consistency in this shorter format," the 23-year-old Vohra told reporters ahead KXIP's clash against Sunrisers Hyderabad here on Friday.

After restricting Sunrisers to a modest 159 in their previous game, KXIP were bowled out for 154 despite Vohra's 50-ball 95-run knock.

KXIP, who are yet to lift the IPL title, have to win most of their remaining games if they fancy their chances to reach the play-offs.

With KXIP to play four home games here, Vohra said the hosts will look to reverse their fortunes.

Punjab won their last game against Gujarat Lions, but Vohra failed to impress in that match.

"Playing in home ground is always a good feeling, the crowd will be supporting us over here. The last game (against Hyderabad) was very close for us, this time around we will like to change the fortune and make it in our favour," he said.

Talking about South African import Hashim Amla, Vohra said, "It has been a great experience, I have been very lucky to bat along side him. He is a legend of the game. He has been telling me a lot and giving valuable tips."
