Punjab Kings held their nerves to overcome Kolkata Knight Riders via 5 wickets in a closely-contested fit on the Dubai Global Stadium in fit 45 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021.
With this win, Punjab Kings stayed in quest of the playoffs, whilst their victory helped Delhi Capitals to cement the highest 4 spot.
The Kolkata Knight Riders captain blamed the dropped catches after dropping the fit.
“To begin with, we did not box as neatly, put catches down. Myself early too. We almost definitely had a par rating at the wicket. The Kings performed neatly, we fought again, however catches have price us,” Morgan advised the broadcaster after the fit.
At the arguable Rahul Tripathi’s catch, which was once dominated out via the 3rd umpire, Morgan mentioned it regarded out in real-time.
“I assumed in real-time that the Tripathi catch was once out. However whilst you gradual it down, the 3rd umpire makes a decision another way. We were given on with it as soon as he made his name,” he mentioned.
“Expectantly we play exhausting within the again finish, get a couple of effects and qualify into the playoffs.”
Punjab Kings might be up in opposition to Royal Challengers Bangalore on Sunday at Sharjah, whilst Kolkata Knight Riders might be up in opposition to SunRisers Hyderabad in Dubai at the identical day.
