Rashid Khan on SRH bowling attack

Rashid Khan on David Warner's captaincy and the SRH bowling attack:

“With David Warner, as a bowler, he makes our job easier when he is scoring and contributing. The best thing about this team is everyone tries to make the job easy for the others. That’s what we do in this team,” Rashid said. “Similarly in the bowling department, If Nattu comes and picks up wickets, it makes my job easier. If Sandeep and Bhuvi pick up wickets, it makes my job easier. Because the batsman is already under pressure when I come into bowl.”

Warner raring to go

"Really excited to get out, we had a practice session and the boys are ready to go.... they trained hard and prepared well. Had two good practice games. We are ready to come out and light it up hopefully," Warner said in a video posted by SRH on Twitter. "We know our supporters through social media and they are extremely supportive, I wish they could come but I know they are supporting us 100 per cent and we appreciate their support. Hopefully, we can entertain you by winning some games," he added.

Morgan backs Shakib to play a big role in IPL 2021

KKR bought back Shakib for ₹3.2 crore at the last auction, and now the left-arm spinner is expected to be an integral member of the team this season. "Given that we have a bit more travel this year and we go from venue to venue, it's important to have strength and depth in the squad. Shakib Al Hasan gives us a different dynamic in the team," Morgan told KKR's official website. "Given that we play at different venues where the conditions change quite a lot, you have a spin-bowling all-rounder who had success in international cricket and IPL at different stages," he added.

Morgan on Karthik's role

“He offers a huge amount of support to me on the pitch and off the field as well. Very grateful that he is in good form and in our team,” Morgan told kkr.in. “DK offers a lot with the bat and behind the stumps. He has been in fine form, and he is always one of those players who if you watch him train and particularly bat, he times the ball beautifully and hits the ball further than most of the guys,” Morgan said.
