You do realize that Required rate was about 8 on a turning track right? Idea was right, but just didn't execute it. Cross batted shots on a turning track is a horrible idea.
And KKR didn't lose because they ran out of batsman, Punjab still managed to defend the total. So yeah, can't blame Shak for attempting to slog.
