Captain of the Knights of Kolkata Eoin Morgan was disappointed after a six-weekend defeat against the Rajasthan Royals at Wanhead Stadium in Mumbai on Saturday, pushing them to the bottom of the table. Morgan blamed the batsmen’s “lack of intent” as the reason for their fourth defeat of the season.
“The quilting disappointed us. We lacked a lot of intent throughout the inning. We were behind the game from the start. We didn’t put the bowlers under enough pressure. RR adapted much better to the pitch. We were probably 40 short, which is a lot in one game. T20, “Morgan said in the post-match presentation.
Kolkata managed to publish only 133 for nine of 20 overs, on the field of Wanhead, where the rhythm seemed to bring out more cutters than usual. Nearly 70 percent of Saturday’s deliveries since the royal family’s attack were between 90 and 130 km / h.
“The wicket today was not as good as it was here in Wanhead and it was a challenge in itself. Every time we tried to use an attack option, we lost a wicket. We had a lot to do in the back, which obviously didn’t “The clearer the mind, the easier it is (to play with intent). We want boys to play free-flowing cricket. Unfortunately, it wasn’t there today,” Morgan added.
Taking the chase carefully, the Royals crossed the line with seven balls to save, where captain Sanju Samson scored with his patient 41-ball 42.
For Rajasthan, this was only the second victory of the season, which puts them in sixth place in the table.
