Sunil Gavaskar says “KKR has an attack that can stifle RCB” in IPL 2021. Cricket legend Gavaskar has praised the Kolkata Knight Riders bowling attack. Also, stated that their mystery spinners Sunil Narine and Varun Chakravarthy. They could stifle any opposition. KKR will play Royal Challengers Bangalore within the Eliminator of the IPL 2021 in Sharjah. Both groups are coming off wins in their respective final league for the matches. There’s still doubt over Andre Russell’s availability. But KKR has bowled great and winning five of their seven matches in the UAE. Also, making it to the playoffs.
“There is no news yet about the availability of Andre Russell, but if he is fit, then he will bolster the middle-order for Kolkata. He is just the kind of player who can turn a match with both bat and ball, so Kolkata will be hoping he is fit,” Sunil Gavaskar said.
“Lockie Ferguson has been terrific for Kolkata, with his pace rattling the best, and if he bowls as well as he can and with the two mystery spinners Sunil Narine and Varun Chakravarthy, Kolkata has an attack that can stifle the opposition,” Sunil Gavaskar wrote.
Lastly, the slow pitch of the Sharjah wicket can surely help the KKR spinners. But if the empty used is batting friendly. The Royal Challengers Bangalore batters have the edge with smaller boundaries. Glenn Maxwell batted through the RCB innings against table-toppers Delhi Capitals. Also, thump a last-ball six to take his side home. Also, his unbeaten 52-ball 78 won him the Player of the Match award.
“Bangalore after that terrific last-ball win over table-toppers Delhi will be buoyant for it was a newcomer, KS Bharat who kept cool and finished the game with a six,” Sunil Gavaskar said.
“It was a brilliantly paced chase and with Maxwell once again taking the lead with some audacious strokeplay, Bharat also began to open out and played some bold shots,” Gavaskar added.
“Don’t forget that he had come in to bat in the first over itself and that too after keeping wickets for 20 overs. To then stay right till the end shows the immense stamina and staying power he has. More importantly, in testing times, he kept his cool, and that also displays sound temperament,” wrote Sunil Gavaskar.
