Gill hit his first fifty in the 2021 Indian Premier League (IPL) as KKR defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) by six wickets on Sunday. “The wicket played slower than we thought than the wicket two nights ago. It rocks early in the power play under these conditions, but it was slow. We had to bowl and field well and we did.” Morgan said during the post-match presentation.

“Shubman played extremely well and led the chase. The depth of the squad to be able to call Shakib is a huge luxury, so he made a huge impact. We didn’t know it wouldn’t be played in India, and we got it right done in the conditions and adapted us well.” he added.

KKR will be hopeful that Shubman Gill will continue his form in the final group game against Rajasthan Royals and help the franchise make it to the knockouts.

2021 IPL: Eoin Morgan says KKR can adapt to slow conditions- Kolkata Knight Riders needed 116 to win in the 20 overs, but SRH bowlers made sure the Morgan-led side had to battle it out for the win. SRH fought hard to try and take the win, but the target was always too small.

“We are focused on playing good cricket and we have done that for the past three weeks. The game plan has had a good impact in the locker room and boys are raising their hands. We did a good job adapting to the slow conditions and I’m happy about that.” said Morgan.

KKR chased the goal with two balls left. The side now has 12 points.
