Kolkata Knight Riders skipper Eoin Morgan has ended his visit to the United Arab Emirates with a tour to famous Sheikh Zayed Mosque in Abu Dhabi alongside his wife on Wednesday. He posted a beautiful picture from his visit on social media which garnered a lot of reactions.
Meanwhile, Kolkata’s run in IPL 2020 came to an end after Sunrisers Hyderabad scripted a 10-wicket win. With only one place on offer, Hyderabad secured their playoff berth. Along with KKR and SRH, Royal Challengers Bangalore had also finished with 7 wins but the Kolkata-based outfit has the worst net run-rate among the three and thus finished at the fifth spot.
