There will be a skirmish between Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) today in IPL (IPL 2020). After the resignation of Dinesh Kartik, world-winning captain Eoin Morgan of England was named the new captain of the team, but the team lost by eight wickets to Mumbai Indians. So now Kolkata will try their best to defeat Hyderabad in the next match. In this match, everyone’s eyes will be on Morgan’s captaincy.
In this match, Morgan has a reasonable time to plan the team’s strategy on his own. Against Hyderabad running out of the way, handling the team for Morgan will not be much headache. They just have to find the right combination. In the last match, he made some changes, which were not effective. For example, playing Chris Green and getting his first over. This decision went against him.
How Morgan uses the team’s players against Hyderabad remains to be seen. Their worry will be batting. There cannot be a change in the players here, but their mindset can be changed and if Morgan is successful in doing this, then a new form of the team can be seen.
Rahul Tripathi, Shubman Gill, Dinesh Karthik, all need a different style. As well as how he handles Morgan and Andre Russell, it has to be seen. Russell has not run at all this season.
In bowling, Pat Cummins, famous Krishna, Shivam Mavi, Kamlesh Nagerkoti are also doing well. One thing Morgen and the team have to look at here and that is instead of Chineman Kuldeep Yadav. Kuldeep has been out of the team for a long time. Morgan brings Kuldeep back to the team and how they use it remains to be seen.
At the same time, it is difficult for Hyderabad too. Because batting is also his problem. Now he does not have much left, now he should win every match and how the captain David Warner, who won the title in 2016, motivates the team from here will be the thing to see. For the team to do well, it is important that Captain Warner, Johnny Bairstow, Manish Pandey and Kane Williamson walk.
Bowling has been good for the team and in the second half, Hyderabad bowling may become more dangerous. Now spinners can be seen to dominate. In such a situation, Rashid Khan can be a problem for the rest of the team. Mohammad Nabi can also be given a chance and Abhishek Sharma has two young spinners as Abdul Samad.
