After having a poor show in their first game, Kolkata Knight Riders registered a seven wicket victory against Sunrisers Hyderabad in Abu Dhabi and England’s world cup winning captain Eoin Morgan who has been playing for KKR gave the credit to the bowlers who restricted the opponents with 142 in 20 overs.

“We were a bit rusty in our last game against MI, but we won this match with our bowlers, they did a great job restricting them. They put them on the back-foot and we knew we didn't have to put ourselves under pressure in the chase,” Morgan added after the match.

Morgan built the foundation alongside Shubman Gill and added a match winning 92-run partnership as well. Gill remained unbeaten at 70 whereas Morgan smashed a quickfire 42. However, he also applauded Shubman after he played the sheet anchor’s role.

“I didn't have to tell him a great deal to be honest, he's beautiful to watch on the eye, good bat swing, very languid style, magnificent to watch, he's good kid, very hungry to learn and I would love to bat with him once again. I think he deserves all the success," he further added.

Meanwhile, Gill was the player of the match and said that the batting conditions helped him to play well.

“I think the ball wasn't spinning much and was easy to hit down the ground. I have practiced power hitting in the last couple of years. We bowled really and we had to back it up with a good performance. There weren't any long conversations with Morgan. We were just trying to anticipate what the bowlers can try and do. As an opener it is my duty to see my team through,” Gill shared after the match.
