Kolkata: Having won two back-to-back matches, Kolkata Knight Riders would look to continue their winning momentum and make the full use of at least their remaining six matches at home in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL).
The KKR slow bowlers led by left-arm spinner Shakib Al Hasan made full use of the difficult Eden Gardens track to restrict Rajasthan Royals to a paltry 131 before coasting to a five-wicket win with four balls to spare in their last game. Kolkata bowling consultant Wasim Akram said that it was imperative to get full points from their remainder of the home games.
"It's still a long way to go, but we have to use the home advantage," Akram told reporters on the sidelines of a promotional programme. Akram said that despite their jittery, the KKR have managed to peak at the right time. "It's a good turn around for us after two losses to start with. Mentally, we are in a strong position. I think we are peaking at the right time," Akram said.
