The Kolkata Knight Riders are though to the finals!!!! They will be facing the Chennai Super Kings in the endgame of this season. However, today’s game itself was as tense as a final. What should have been a cakewalk for the Knights at one stage, turned out to be a mountains which they struggled to climb. KKR’s top order batsmen were however at their best and did most of the job in the beginning of the second innings itself. After restricting DC to 135, KKR got themselves to a superb position to win it with a few overs to spare before their middle order batters had a collapse. Rahul Tripathi however kept his calm and hit a six to win the game for KKR. We have an exciting Friday coming up we’re all set to witness the IPL 2021 Final between CSK and KKR. Pant however was a dejected captain as his side missed the chance to reach the finals despite getting two chances.

“I don’t have words to express at the moment, can’t tell anything. We just kept believing, tried to stay in the game as long as possible. The bowlers nearly pulled it back, but it’s unfortunate that it didn’t go our way. They bowled very well in the middle-overs, we got stuck and couldn’t rotate strike. Delhi Capitals are known to be positive and hopefully we’ll come back better next season. We played really good cricket, yes, there will be ups and downs, but we’ll stay positive, be there for each other, care for each other and hopefully we’ll come back better next season.” Said Pant who was emotional as well. “We will dissect what happened in the last four overs. The openers gave us a great platform. But we have won and we are in the finals. We are delighted to get over the line. We are in the entertainment business and need to play some entertaining cricket. Six off 2 and you would say the odds are for the bowling side. But Tripathi has done it for us so many times.

The guys coming in feel free to express themselves. The backroom staff have created an excellent atmosphere for that to happen. With the squad we have, we had huge expectations. Our coach BMac saw Iyer and had tracked his progress. Iyer seems to be batting on a different wicket. Anything can happen in a final!” Said Mohammed during the post match presentation. Venkatesh Iyer won the player of the match award for his sensation knock. ” I am doing what has been asked of me. I am very happy that we ended on the winning side. There is no difference. I came out and played the way I want to play. I am grateful to the management. It is a wonderful place to come and play. I think in the past couple of games, I have been trying to restrict myself a bit as I wanted to stay till the end. But then I thought it is not me. I was losing out on the present trying to be a bit conservative. Gill is an extremely wonderful strokeplayer. Heard the news (about selection as a net bowler for India) this morning, but yy entire focus was on tonight’s game” Said Venkatesh Iyer after winking the player of the match award.
