Pitch Report:

"Same track as the one used yesterday afternoon. It hasn't changed since RR scored 177 here yesterday, but it looks a little drier. Be wary of the spinners, but also be wary of the short boundaries on one side, ranging from 61 to 65 meters behind square for the right-hander."

Eoin Morgan's acceptance after MI defeat!

Kolkata Knight Riders captain Eoin Morgan blamed top-order batting failure for his side’s comprehensive defeat to Mumbai Indians in their IPL match in Abu Dhabi and said they need to “turn things around” quickly. 

"That’s putting it very politely. With the batting early on, we made a few mistakes. Mumbai Indians bowled really well and proved exactly why they have been one of the form teams in the tournament so far," Morgan had said after the defeat against MI.

"From here on, there is another area of improvement that we need to make strides on. We”re just past the half-way stage in the tournament. There is no better time to turn things around."

Good news for KKR!

A week after being reported for suspected bowling action, the Indian Premier League’s Bowling Action Committee on Sunday cleared Kolkata Knight Riders all-rounder Sunil Narine from the warning list. 

As per a statement released by IPL, the bowling committee monitored Narine’s action from two – back and side – angles. It found that the elbow-bend was well within the permissible limits.

“The Committee carefully reviewed all the deliveries of action footage sent of Mr Narine with the naked eye and has come to the conclusion that the elbow-bend appears to be within the range of permissible limits,” the statement read.
