Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) captain Dinesh Karthik welcomed youngsters Shivam Mavi and Kamlesh Nagerkoti for their “incredible” performance against Rajasthan Royals. The two made their appearance in the 12th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Wednesday, two responsible for the dismissal. Nagerkoti made headlines with his fielding, a brilliant catch to dismiss Joffra Archer, a fast bowler who looked dangerous at one stage. In the ongoing version of the tournament, KKR defeated RR by 37 runs, surviving the latter’s unbeaten streak.
“A lot of things made me happy – the way Gill started Russell, the way Morgan kept his head. It doesn’t matter if the beautiful vision of youth was going for a catch. I think Archer bowled in some good areas. ” People made the pitch better than that, it was a very special thing – these boys, the journey they have played when they were not playing, and it was incredible for them to just come out and express themselves with the ball Dinesh said Karthik in the post-match presentation.
Earlier, the Kolkata-based franchise posted a total of 174/6 after being sent to bat by RR. Opener Shubman Gill was the highest run scorer, scoring 47 runs in 34 balls in the innings of five innings and a six. However, such a competitive total would not have been posted if an unbeaten 34-run knock was played by Eoin Morgan, who pushed the side to safety after some cheap dismissals. RR were restricted to 137/9 in 20 overs, with two youngsters as well as Varun Chakraborty being asked to take two wickets.
