"Clearly that was the case," Charlesworth accepted after the match. "Sixteen goals of the 20 we managed were from corners. Turner and Sari could not score and we ran out of ideas despite dominating possession in most of the matches." Defender Matthew Swann complemented his coach's thoughts. "Our performance in the attacking and defensive third was poor. Hopefully, we'll work on it through the year and come back stronger next January," the young Australian said.
Uttar Pradesh will join Delhi Waveriders, Ranchi Rhinos and Punjab Wizards in the semifinals. The last round of group stage matches will be held on Thursday before the semifinals on Saturday and the final on Sunday.
