Kolkata Knight Riders leg -spinner Piyush Chawla the win against Daredevils was convincing but they never expected such a stroll in the park. “We never thought it’s going to come that easy, but it was quite convincing. From here we have to look forward. We know some big challenges are ahead of us,” he said. KKR won their first match against Delhi Daredevils at Eden Gardens yesterday night by nine wickets.

Chawla also said it was fun bowling in tandem with veteran Brad Hogg in their IPL-9 opener. “He is always energetic and it’s fun bowling with him. He really boosts you to do well at the other end that really happened today. The way he started, giving away just two runs and picking up a wicket, from the other end, it was just about keeping it tight,” he said. Hogg took 3 for 19.

KKR will next face Mumbai Indians here on April 13. “You will get slow wickets in Kolkata and a couple of other places. Mostly we will get different types of wickets in our away matches. So it was a good start for us as spinners,” Chawla said.
