IPL 2021 CSK v KKR: Ian Morgan’s reaction after Chennai Super Kings beat Kolkata Knight Riders by 18 runs

Chennai Super Kings defeated Kolkata Knight Riders by 18 runs in the 15th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021. CSK, batting first, lost 3 wickets in 20 overs and scored 220 runs. Faf Dupli scored an unbeaten 95 for the team while Itu Turaj Gaikwad scored 64 runs. Chasing a huge 221-run target, Pat Cummins (66 not out) and Andre Russell were all out for 202 after a storming 54-run stand. This is Chennai’s third win of the season and they have topped the points table.

After the loss to Chennai, Captain Morgan said, “Cricket is a wonderful game. At one point I gave up all hope of winning. But then the way Andre Russell, Dinesh Karthik and Pat Cummins batted, they showed that they can make a good partnership.” Get out. I didn’t expect to be in the match so far. ” As a result, we came very close to winning the match. Where the match was after the powerplay, the team had no intention of bringing the batsmen so far forward. Our middle order and lower order batsmen performed brilliantly. However, what can you do when the wicket falls in the top order?

KKR’s Ian Morgan further said that the match was full of ups and downs. During the powerplay we were ahead in bowling but then bowled a bit loose and Chennai scored more than 200 runs. Then we got off to a bad start. But I’m glad our lower middle order did well and kept us in the match. What to say about Andre Russell, everyone knows that when he is in his rhythm he can become the most dangerous player of this tournament. In particular, Kolkata have suffered their third defeat in four matches. The team has two points and is ranked sixth.
