IPL 2020: KKR vs SRH: Pitch holding up a bit: Vijay Shankar

IPL 2020: KKR vs SRH: Pitch holding up a bit: Vijay Shankar”

Eoin Morgan's first match as Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) captain may have ended in a heavy defeat but his team got over the line in a Super Over in the second against SunRisers Hyderabad on Sunday, which the England batsman said gives a glimpse of how the players can react to pressure situations. That was too good a game.

"We have been striving to get wins off the last couple of games, it didn't quite work out. 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.

A fine all-round bowling effort from the KKR bowlers restricted SRH to 142 for 4 in Abu Dhabi - in the first encounter between the two teams in IPL 2020. I thought this was a nice wicket that wouldn't change and to be fair it didn't. "It held up a little bit in the middle overs but at the end of the day, there's no excuse", he added.
