The captain of the knights in Kolkata Eoin Morgan had to return after a terrible mess with Rahul Tripati in the match against Rajasthan Royals on Saturday in Wanhead.
Morgan, who came in to fight when KKR rolled 54/3 halfway. However, his stay at the fold was rather forgotten, as he died for a diamond duck.
When Chris Morris passed, Tripati pushed the ball to Morgan at the end of the non-striker. The ball deflected to Maurice’s left after coming into contact with Morgan’s willow. There was a terrible confusion between the two KKR batsmen.
Tripathi started and Morgan was also unclear on the call. Morris quickly grabbed the ball and shifted the guarantees to cause a leak. Morgan also finished third IPL captain after Shane Warne and Gautam Gambir to register a diamond duck in the tournament. After being beaten, KKR lost their fourth goal in Morgan’s face.
Earlier, KKR started slowly and added only 25 tracks in Powerplay. Opener Shubman Gil (11) fled Butler while his ally Nitish Rana, 22, fell victim to Chetan Sakarya. Sunil Narine also failed to leave a mark and left after scoring 6 out of 7 deliveries.
With just one win in the first four games, KKR sit at the bottom of the table with two points.
“We are playing our second game at Wankhede and it is better to know the conditions. The game played here corresponds to our game and we hope we can correct them today. It was a great game of cricket,” Morgan said in the throw.
