Kolkata Knight Riders skipper Eoin Morgan, probably the most revered voices in worldwide cricket, on Monday acknowledged that the gamers are greater than conscious of the horrific nature of the COVID-19 pandemic which is claiming a whole lot of lives outdoors the bio-bubble. With the second wave of the pandemic wreaking havoc, IPL is witnessing participant pull-outs on account of concern of bubble fatigue at one finish and a generous donation of USD 50,000 to buy Oxygen cylinders from Pat Cummins.
“It’s challenging and things have to be managed for the players and staff, and we know the horrific nature of what’s happening outside the bubble,” Morgan said after playing a match-winning knock against Punjab Kings on Monday.
“We try and lend our support and we’ve seen how devastating it is not only in India but around the world. If you’re going out stay safe, wear a mask, maintain social distance. We’ve seen huge amounts of tough times, even at home. On behalf of KKR, we wish everyone well. We can stick together, we can beat this thing,” Morgan stated.
On the sport entrance, Punjab Kings skipper KL Rahul was furious with an underwhelming efficiency from his males as they may rating solely 123 for 9.
“I really don’t know what to say, it was a poor performance from us,” Rahul stated.
“We should have adapted better on a new pitch, we could have applied a lot more with the bat and get that extra 20-30 runs. The wicket was a bit low and slow, but 120-130 was not enough. A few soft dismissals costing us the game,” Rahul added.
