Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) captain Ewen Morgan said his team had not put enough runs on the board for the bowlers to challenge the Rajasthan Royals (RR) in Mumbai on Saturday. Rallying a total pedestrian count of 133 to 9, Chris Morris wreaked havoc with numbers 4 for 23. RR chased the total without too much trouble, winning the match by six wickets. Speaking at the post-match press conference, Eoin Morgan admitted that KKR’s batsmen need to take the blame for the defeat. “The hitting was a disappointment, and we lacked a lot of intent and strength throughout our roles,” he said. We were behind the eight ball from the start. Rajasthan Royals adapted wickets well, and we didn’t. I would say the majority are with bats. We’ve probably been 40 short, and that’s a lot for T20. There was a lot to do for bowlers tonight. “The wicket in Wankhede was not as good as in the previous matches: Owen Morgan While Ewen Morgan was disappointed by hitting his team, he also indicated that the wicket in Wankhede was not as good as it was in the previous game.” Ewen Morgan explained in this regard: “It is in stark contrast. With the last game. We had men who built partnerships but maybe lacked a little intent. Wicket today wasn’t as good as Wankhede in previous games. This was a challenge in itself, and we couldn’t overcome that challenge, leaving us with a lot to do. Every time we seemed to be making an offensive choice, we lost a small hit, which is very frustrating. Close to the back end of the roles, we left a lot to do, which we clearly didn’t do. “Ewen Morgan noted that KKR batsmen are able to play winning kicks in matches, but that didn’t happen for them back in the day, saying,“ The more clear the mind, the easier it is. And within our side’s capabilities, there is an element to play smart cricket and build partnerships within it. In the end, one person needs to play free flowing cricket; There was no day unfortunately. Both teams were struggling to gain momentum in the tournament, and we lost two big points. We move to Ahmedabad. We hope the place is right for us. Runs Without Facing Ball Posted April 25, 2021, 00:37 EST Log in / Signup to reply.
