On Monday, Kolkata Cavaliers (KKR) captain Eoin Morgan was pleased with his team’s performance in the nine games of Royal Challenger Bangalore (RCB). KKR dominated the game from the first ball and the bowler took the lead.
After choosing to hit the ball on the green track first, everything about Virat Kohli and his men fell apart. The regular wicket, the failure of the batting powerhouse, and the KKR pitcher absolutely did not give up anything, which made RCB lose the game. At the post-match awards ceremony, Eoin Morgan said:
“Its timing is very good. The talent in our team is sometimes not worth mentioning. You must go out and show how good you are. It’s about 50-50 toss. The bowler had a great day today. Maxwell, AB, Virat-we surpassed them, which is great and very rare.“
“Has a long way to go [in the league]. Many things are needed to do the right thing for us [to qualify]. Today is the perfect start. Maybe let us become a dangerous side-we have not participated in the game so far.“
KKR’s 9 victories put them fifth in the standings
Kolkata limits the scoring of RCB teams to 92 points. Varun Chakravarthy and Andre Russell were the bowlers’ choices, each scoring three wickets. The returning Lockie Ferguson also inserted a few wickets.
The rejuvenated KKR opener brought this chase to an end early, Schumann Gil And Venkatesh El. The former likes Kyle Jamieson, declaring his authority to tall New Zealanders. Al also had an impressive debut, which ended the game with a series of boundaries.
This victory pushed KKR to fifth place, surpassing Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Punjab Kings (PBKS). As for RCB, they stayed in third place with 5 wins in 8 games, but their net running rate declined due to huge losses.
