What Eoin Morgan Said after loosing IPL Final: Kolkata Knight Riders captain Eoin Morgan says after losing the title clash against Chennai Super Kings.
Highlights KKR set a target of 193 runs to win the title for the third time.
Dubai: MS Dhoni-captained Chennai Super Kings broke Kolkata Knight Riders’ dream of winning the IPL title for the third time on Friday. Dhoni, who clashed for the 9th time, managed to clinch the title for the fourth time. Chennai Super Kings, who lost the toss and elected to bat first, were 192 for 3 in 20 overs thanks to Faf Duplessi’s 86-run knock. But KKR could not achieve the target of 193 runs to win and lost by a margin of 27 runs.
I am proud of the kind of game we played, said Eoin Morgan after the defeat. But today was not our day. The kind of character we showed and the way we fought became our identity. Our team owners Shah Rukh Khan and Venky Mysore are extremely fantastic. Our players played brilliantly and performed well. Venkatesh Iyer and Shubman Gill performed brilliantly. Venkatesh is a new player in ipl. But both the players were the backbone of the second stage of our batting. Tripathi did well for us in the last three matches and unfortunately he was hurt today.
Couldn’t take advantage of a great start
Chasing a target of 193 runs, KKR were given a great start by Venkatesh Iyer and Shubman Gill. Both the batsmen got a lifeline and took advantage of it to complete fifty off 37 balls for the first wicket. Kkr were 88 for no loss in 10 overs. Iyer (31) and Shubman Gill (36(29) were batting on 36.1.
Fall of wickets begins in 11th over
After Venkatesh Iyer was dismissed on the fourth ball of the 11th over, KKR’s wickets fell. Apart from Iyer (50) and Gill (51), only kkr and no batsman could touch the two-point mark by ninth and tenth-ranked batsmen Shivam Mavi and Lucky Ferguson. For Chennai, Shardul Thakur top-scored with 3 wickets, Hazlewood-Jadeja took 2 wickets each. Deepak Chahar and Bravo got one wicket each
