Chennai Super Kings all-rounder Albie Morkel says last-gasp thrillers in the Indian Premier League can be stressful for both players and spectators.

IPL-V has seen 13 last-over finishes, 11 of those getting decided off the last ball. “Batting towards the end of a T20 game can be very stressful when the team is trying to win a match from a difficult situation,” Morkel said.

“It is important to find a way to try and keep your heart rate down. Sometimes it gets the better of you and you get very stiff. I try to do a lot of stretching to relax and also do not look at the scoreboard too often.”
