IPL 2021: KKR vs PBKS: Golden Ducks and Catches But It Was An Eoin Morgan Show

It was all about golden ducks and catches win matches on Monday, 26 April when PBKS went against KKR at Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad where KKR won the match by 5 wickets

It was all about “golden ducks”, “catches win matches” as on Monday, 26 April PBKS went against KKR at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad. It was a do-or-die situation for both teams. The first match at the world’s largest stadium had a lot to offer, from Ravi Bishnoi’s sprinted TV diving catch, to Eoin Morgan’s leading from the front Captain innings, and finally, KKR bagging the match by 5 wickets. Here’s how the official social media handles of franchise and fanfam reacted to the thriller.

While Dinesh Karthik played the 50th for KKR, Chris Jordan had a grandeur welcome in the PBKS family

When KKR’s Eoin Morgan won the toss and decided to bowl nobody thought that they would limit PBKS at a meagre 123/9, all thanks to the superb bowling by Prasidh Krishna (3/30), Sunil Narine(2/22), Pat Cummings(2/31) who not only took early wickets but also made sure not many runs were secured.

The damage had been done, it was now batsmen who would seal the victory for KKR, but this is T20, and anything can happen when bowlers and fielders are determined to be lethal. PBKS bowlers were on a spree as they “golden duckk-ed Nitish Rana, Sunil Narine and limited KKR to a 17/3 after first 3 overs.

Ravi Bishnoi’s running catch and Chris Gayle’s diving to stop the ball and aiming for a direct hit (that made his west indies counter-part Andre Russell giggle) were some caught on camera moments, here’s a recap,

KKR’s green room was high on morale and boosted with confidence after the day’s win

With KKR in 5th spot and PBKS in 6th, it’ll be interesting to see how they buckle up for the rest of the matches. Till then CSK are the table toppers and a lot of cricket is yet to be unfolded
