Kolkata Knight Riders are on a song in the mid-way of the tourney.

All in all, the credit must go to the skipper, Dinesh Karthik for his incredible belief on his core unit.

Shubman Gill is special: Dinesh Karthik

Dinesh Karthik furtherly added that he doesn’t want to give a much hype for Shubman Gill and keep more pressure on him. He also admitted that they were little harsh on Gill for sending him down the order in previous encounters.

“Credit to the management to have taken so many U-19 players. We were a little harsh on Gill earlier, but he’s hit first-ball boundaries in the past too, so he’s been good. Don’t want to hype him up so he doesn’t feel the added pressure, but he’s special. I can see a lot of years of India Blues in him.,” Dinesh Karthik quoted while speaking in the post-match presentation.

Sunil Narine is a great player to have on the team: KKR skipper

The winning skipper, Dinesh Karthik is full of praises for Sunil Narine for his incredible all-round show for the team. He added that Narine’s initial impetus in the powerplay overs and his spin duties have been terrific for the team. He concluded it by saying that Narine is a thorough all-rounder.

”Our bowlers were confident today, and they wanted to bowl, so I was happy to put their batsmen under pressure. We finished quickly because both were set, and T20 is such that you need to be pushing boundaries when you have momentum. Sunil’s a thorough allrounder, and he bowls the better overs for us,” the winning skipper concluded.

Coming to the future assignments, Kolkata Knight Riders will make a move to historic venue, Wankhede Stadium to take on star-studded Mumbai Indians in an afternoon game on Sunday.
