Mumbai: Odean Smith repaid the faith shown in him by Punjab Kings as he took his side to an emphatic win in their first IPL match of the season versus Royal Challengers Bangalore on Sunday. Making his IPL debut, Smith was unstoppable with the bat as his eight-ball 25* helped Punjab gun down a mammoth 206. Smith, who was picked as the man of the match, said that the side is focussed on winning and watching international movie ’14 Peaks’ helped.

“It can be a first for most of us. Punjab Kings haven’t won the title yet, but it’s all about winning. We watched a motivational movie called 14 Peaks. The first peak is done; 13 more to go.”

Disappointed with his bowling effort, Smith said that he needs to work on that ahead of the next game, adding: “It didn’t go to plan with my bowling – I’ve got to work on that. But I’m glad to get my team home (with the bat). It was all about execution, and that’s the reason why it went haywire (with the ball).”

Chasing 206 to win, Mayank Agarwal (32 off 24) and Shikhar Dhawan (43 off 29) added 71 for the first wicket to lay the foundation for the chase, Bhanuka Rajapaksa (43 off 22) also shone on his IPL debut but Punjab suffered a collapse to be down and out at 156 for 5.

However, Shahrukh Khan (24 not out off 20 balls) and Odean Smith (25 not out off 8 balls) then joined hands to complete the job in the end. The duo shared a 52-run unbroken stand off just 25 balls for the sixth wicket to take Punjab home.
