KKR’s Morgan fails to deliver with the bat again
KKR vs CSK in IPL 2021: KKR Captain Eoin Morgan fails to deliver with the bat yet again – Kolkata Knight Riders’ skipper Eoin Morgan continued his torrid run in India. After an under-par performance in the ODI and T20I series against India, his poor form has continued in the IPL 2021 as well. On Wednesday, Morgan once again failed to put up a good show with the bat as he was sent back to the dugout by Deepak Chahar after scoring just 7 runs off 7 balls. Morgan has scored just 45 runs in his 4 innings with a below-par strike rate of 112.
In KKR’s first game of the edition captain, Eoin Morgan could only score 2 runs off 3 three balls against Sunrisers Hyderabad as he was dismissed by Mohammad Nabi. While in the next game against Mumbai Indians, the southpaw scored 7 runs before getting dismissed against Rahul Chahar.
KKR vs CSK: Eoin Morgan’s inability to score against spin bowling is quite evident in this season
In the next match, KKR was chasing a big total set by Royal Challengers Banglore, Eoin Morgan was looking in good touch but played a loose shot against Harshal Patel.
In today’s match against Chennai Super Kings, Morgan again failed to deliver in the crisis situation as his team failed to get going chasing a big total.
Morgan’s batting form is clearly affecting the KKR’s performance as his team has just won one game out of three and is ranked 6th in the points table. KKR’s net run rate is also negative.
Last season Kolkata Knight Riders handed Morgan the captaincy in the middle of the season. Now it will be interesting to see if Morgan can deliver with the bat and turn his team’s fortune around.
