Kolkata Knight Riders have made a brilliant comeback to the second-leg of IPL 2021 with two consecutive wins. With 4 won matches from 9 played so far, Kolkata after taking down Mumbai Indians by 7 wickets is now in the fourth place of the Points Table, while the five times champions MI has slide down to the sixth place.
KKR skipper Eoin Morgan seemed very pleased with his team's performance. Morgan had special words of praise for Varun Chakravarthy, who despite going wicketless against MI remained very economical with the run rate. The talented bowler spared 22 runs in the four overs bowled.
Chakravarthy has represented India in 3 T20Is and also found a place in the T20 World Cup squad.
"Sunil and Varun are formidable bowlers. Sunil has been integral in winning KKR championships in the past. Varun is a fresh guy and I'm sure we are definitely going to see a lot more of him in international cricket. The first two games in this second phase have been a great template for us to play. There's only one way for us to go in the points table, and that's up," winning captain Morgan said at the post-match ceremony.
