Kolkata Knight Riders have not been able to perform well in the ongoing IPL tournament 2021. As of now, they are the sixth in the points table. Out of the 7 matches played so far, they have managed to win just 2 matches.
Sunil Gavaskar took to Twitter to mention that KKR does not have many classy batsmen. He said only Shubham Gill and Eoin Morgan have class when it comes to batting.
Shubman Gill has to find ways of scoring runs in the Powerplay. Think he puts too much pressure onto himself.— Vikrant Gupta (@vikrantgupta73) April 24, 2021
Even the top three batsmen of Kolkata Knight Riders failed to give impressive performances. Shubham Gill scored 43 off 38 balls, Rana scored 15 off 12 balls and Rahul scored 19 off 17 balls. Their striking rate was below 125.
Kolkata Knight Riders should not have chosen Sunil Narine to be at the middle order
Gavaskar further criticized KKR for allowing Sunil Narine to be in the middle order. He has merely scored 4 against CSK, 6 against RR and 0 against PBKS, and 0 against DC.
Gavaskar suggested keeping Narine at the top order. As of now, Kolkata Knight Riders do not have potential players who can play at 3, 4, or 5.
Kolkata Knight Riders will now face off Royal Challengers Bangalore on the 3rd of May. RCB has played well so far in the IPL 2021 tournament. They are at the third spot on the points table. They have played in 7 matches so far and won in 5 of them.
KKR and RCB have faced off each other in about 26 matches. KKR has won in about 14 matches and RCB has won in 12 matches.
