Yesterday the Kolkata Knight Riders completed a remarkable turnaround and defeated Chennai Super Kings. Batting first KKR finally promoted Rahul Tripathi at the opening slot and shifted Sunil Narine down the order. This move paid dividend as Tripathi scored a match-winning 81.
Interestingly after the start, KKR got it finally seemed that Eoin Morgan will bat at 4 for the first time in IPL 2020. However, KKR once again baffled everyone and sent Sunil Narine as a pinch hitter.
Seeing this even Ben Stokes questioned the tactics of KKR to send Narine ahead of Morgan. Stokes who’s currently in quarantine in UAE, couldn’t help himself and tweeted, “Narine before Morgan???”.

This isn’t a first as Yuvraj has never been shy to express his views about the game on social media in his witty way. Several times we have seen Yuvraj involving in online banter with fellow cricketers.
Moreover, KKR’s decision to send Narine at 4 did work as he scored a quickfire 17 off mere 9 balls. Morgan who came out to bat at 5 failed to make a notable contribution as he was dismissed by Sam Curran for just 7. Ultimately KKR wrapped up the match by 10 runs as CSK once again choked under pressure.
Coming back to Stokes, the all-rounder will only be available to play for Rajasthan Royals after their match on 9 October. The Royals after losing there last 3 matches will take on the red hot Delhi Capitals at Sharjah.
