Kolkata Knight Riders were well beaten by Delhi Capitals in an IPL 2019 experience at the Eden Gardens on Friday night. Sourav Ganguly, who in the past has held different roles with the Kolkata establishment including being the skipper, sat in the Delhi Capitals hole and planned KKR’s ruin.
Notwithstanding, regardless of a shift in reliability for Sourav Ganguly, Kolkata Knight Riders proprietor Shah Rukh Khan posted an uncommon message for his group’s previous skipper on Twitter, saying that the main positive in KKR’s misfortune was that “our Dada was at Eden on the triumphant side”.
Wonderful play by @RealShubmanGill & @Russell12A yet again. Losing is ok but today we kind of lacked heart, especially bowling, that’s sad. Only positive out of this game was that our Dada @SGanguly99 was at Eden on the winning side. Congrats @DelhiCapitals

Shah Rukh Khan, however, was disheartened by the absence of heart appeared by KKR bowlers in the loss.Shubman Gill’s 65 off 39 balls and Andre Russell’s 21-ball 45 helped the hosts post a battling aggregate of 171 for seven.Delhi Capitals, be that as it may, loped in the pursuit. Shikhar Dhawan crushed an unbeaten 97 off 63 balls, including 11 fours and two sixes, while Rishabh Pant contributed 46 off 31 balls as Delhi redesignd the objective with seven wickets taken care of and seven balls to spare.
It was a dreary exhibition from the KKR bowlers, with most going for plenty.Nitish Rana was the most prudent bowler, removing a wicket and giving 12 keeps running off his two overs. Kuldeep Yadav too was trained with figures of 0/28 in his four overs.However, rest of the bowlers all had economy rates over 8 with Lockie Ferguson, Piyush Chawla and Carlos Brathwaite winding up with economy rates of 12.33, 12.35 and 13.00 respectively.Shah Rukh Khan will trust his group skip back when they host IPL table-toppers Chennai Super Kings at the Eden Gardens on Sunday.
