Crucial knocks by Nitish Rana and Shubman Gill ensured KKR’s win by 6 wickets, with two balls left. Subhman Gill is the play’s Man Of The Month on the 49th game at Dubai International Stadium.
With every game, KKR is improving their strength whereas on the other hand SRH’s vulnerabilities are exposed one after another. Morgan was praised for the bowling group who restricted SRH to 115 and batsmen, namely, Shubman Gill.
It would be an innings Shubman Gill would keep close to his heart not only with lightning stroke-play but also showed a sparkling performance in the middle phase of the innings. Sunil Narine, Varun Chakravarthy and Shakib Al Hasan have the most distinctive, as well as frightening spin trio in the league. The trio wound up the disheveled Sunrisers Hyderabad in a tangle of knots getting just 58 runs in 12 overs.
Most importantly, Kolkata Knight Riders captain Eoin Morgan is the first one to admit that he has been short of runs throughout the Indian Premier League (IPL) but is confident of finding some form with the tournament hitting the business end. “Yeah, I am short of runs in this phase of the tournament, the whole tournament in general. I am very lucky to be in a position where I have been through stages like this in my career,’ Morgan said.
Chakravarty(2/26), perceptibly, is the most noticeable of the lot, his performance inspiring all the new-age lads of T20 cricket- from the carrom ball to googly, from off-break to leg-breaks. To watch him on loop and understand how his game has taken a turn towards recognizable success!
