Eoin Morgan is considered to be one of the best buys for KKR this season. Our fans wanted him earnestly and the franchise heard them! Morgan, who led England to the ICC World Cup title last year, will add on a lot of value to the core leadership group of KKR and a lot of stability to the middle order.
If you follow cricket, you know Morgan is a man with extraordinary batting and leadership skills. He transformed the entire English side with his bold captaincy and aggressive batting style.
Under his leadership, England amassed a mammoth 481-6 against the Aussies at Nottingham in 2018, which still stands as a World Record in the ODIs. Not only that, his numbers in the 2019 World Cup were staggering (371 runs in 10 innings). We bet you haven’t forgotten his 71-ball 148 against Afghanistan during the campaign.
Morgan’s stint in the IPL hasn’t been that regular. He has often chosen to skip the mega event to perform his national duty. No wonder, England is the No. 1 ODI side now. He had been a part of the KKR family from 2011-13 and it is quite a thrill to have him back to our line-up for the 2020 edition of IPL.
