IPL 2021, RCB Vs KKR: Eoin Morgan, the Kolkata Knight Riders captain was on the dropping aspect on Sunday night as Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore received the match by 38 runs. Gautam Gambhir described an incident and referred to as Morgan’s captaincy “weirdest”. But what transpired?
KKR had picked up two wickets within the second over, that of Kohli and Patidar. Both wickets had been taken by Varun Chakravarthy, the leg spinner. Despite that, Chakravarthy was denied a second over in that spell. This gave time for Maxwell to quiet down and rating 70+ runs. Gambhir felt that not gving Chakravarthy a second over was a mistake by Morgan. He stated: “Virat Kohli was a big wicket, no doubt about it. But that has to be the weirdest kind of captaincy I have ever seen in my life. Someone taking two wickets in the first over, and then does not get to bowl the next one.” He was speaking on the post-match show on Star Sports.
He also said, “Probably when you recognize the in-form batter is in. You might have most likely seen the sport within the first six overs, had Varun Chakravarthy had picked the third wicket or dismissed Glenn Maxwell. This sport might have been over there after which.”
Gambhir also said that if the decision was taken by any Indian captain, then he would have been criticized. “I’m completely satisfied that an Indian captain didn’t make this blunder. Because lots of people would have truly acquired their daggers out had an Indian captain made this name. That was most likely probably the most ridiculous captaincy I’ve ever seen,” he concluded.
