New Delhi In the 25th match of the Indian Premier League, Kolkata Knight Riders have suffered a crushing defeat against Delhi Capitals.
After the defeat of Kolkata, team captain Eoin Morgan has made a big statement. Eoin Morgan said that if the team has to progress in the IPL season, the big names will have to perform better.
Delhi Capitals defeated Kolkata by seven wickets in the match played at opener Prithvi Shaw (82) at the Narendra Modi Stadium here on Thursday. Morgan said after the match, “It is definitely very disappointing.
We started off slow in batting and bowling was also very simple. Overall it was a disappointing performance of the team. If we have to move forward in the tournament, the big names will have to do well.
Delhi won the toss and bowled first, stopping Kolkata for 154 runs for six wickets and then easily achieved the target by losing three wickets with 21 balls to spare. He said, “Our bowling and batting have not gone together in any match. Mavi had bowled four consecutive overs in the last match, but you know what happened in this match.”
Pat Cummins was the new ball bowler for us last year but this time he is our death bowler. However, the dressing room environment is very good and the boys are trying to learn from their mistakes. It is Delhi Capitals’ fifth win in seven matches and has now moved up to number two in the table with 10 points.
Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore also have 10-10 points each, but due to better net run rate, Chennai is on top and Bangalore is at number three. At the same time, Kolkata have suffered a fifth defeat in seven matches and the team is at number five with four points.
