Enter the second phase of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 in the UAE, Kolkata Knight Riders chief mentor David Hussey revealed his expectations of several of the team members, including captain Eoin Morgan. Hussey said he expects Morgan to distract from the front and deliver some great performances. Hussey said in an interview before the season with kkr.in: ‘He is the captain. He’s going to be at the forefront from the start. We need some great performances from him. He is probably in the most difficult position to play in the middle order. So when you come in, you’re either in trouble, or you’re coming in with three or four balls to go if your best order went well. “
Hussey also wants Morgan to lead the team in terms of leadership. KKR is languishing in seventh place in the IPL 2021 points ladder, with two wins from their seven matches played so far.
“He also needs to lead from a captain’s point of view on the field. Get the field right, take wickets and gamble a few times. Hopefully play an entertaining cricket match,” Hussey added.
As for Morgan’s personal performances, it was difficult for the KKR captain. In seven matches, the English cricketer scored only 92 runs at an average of 15.33.
“If we know Eoin, he will be disappointed with the last seven games. He is going to prepare well, and I support him to dominate the last seven games. Not only with the bat, but also with captaincy,” he said. .
KKR will face Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on 20 September.
