IPL 2020: Morgan, Karthik propel KKR to 163/5 against SRH

Varun Chakravarthy knocks over Suryakumar Yadav

In the 35th match of 2020 IPL, Sunrisers Hyderabad will play against Kolkata Knight Riders at Sheik Zayed Stadium, Dubai. Both teams scored 163 runs in their allotted 20 overs which had dragged the match into the Super Over.

"I don't know where to start". We probably leaked a few too many towards the back end but for us, it's about trying to finish games.

"For us, it's about finishing games and we've failed the last 2-3 occasions. The hunger and the drive he's shown off the field while waiting for an opportunity is pleasing", said Morgan in the post-match presentation ceremony. 19 times the teams that have batted first have won at this venue whereas, 25 times the teams that have bowled first have won at the venue. I thought this was a nice wicket that wouldn't change and to be fair it didn't.

Kolkata Knight Riders: Dinesh Karthik (c & wk), Shubman Gill, Sunil Narine, Nitish Rana, Eoin Morgan, Andre Russell, Pat Cummins, Kuldeep Yadav, Shivam Mavi, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Prasidh Krishna, Rahul Tripathi, Siddhesh Lad, Sandeep Warrier, Nikhil Naik, Chris Green, Lockie Ferguson, Rinku Singh, Tom Banton, Varun Chakravarthy, Manimaran Siddharth. The duo formed a 48-run partnership before Thangarasu Natarajan, in the sixth over, dismissed Tripathi. Warner was unbeaten on 47 off 33 balls.

Left needing just three to win off leg-spinner Rashid Khan, Kolkata captain Eoin Morgan combined with the man he recently replaced in the job, Dinesh Karthik, to complete the job, the pair having earlier made 34 and 29 not out respectively. "I think if we bowl into the wicket, it's holding a bit, so if we bowl into the pitch, it'll be hard to hit", he stated. "He's (Williamson) got a niggle near the top end of the adductors, so hopefully, he gets some physio treatment in the next couple of days and comes up for our next game".
