Despite Russell’s strong innings last season, the KKR team missed out on a slight difference from making a place in the playoffs. The franchise has included Morgan, considered the best batsman of the middle order in limited overs, to reduce Russell’s burden.
Morgan said in an online press conference on the eve of the team’s first match, ‘I know (Andre) Russell has played that role well enough for Kolkata for many years. He has performed brilliantly. If I can play well, hopefully I will be able to help. This KKR vice-captain said that he is more experienced now and his batting has improved a lot.
Morgan will represent the franchise for the second time. He was previously associated with this team from 2011-2013. He said, ‘I think it’s been a long time for him (KKR) to play. Talking about batting, my game has improved a lot in the last 3-4 years. I think I have improved in this matter.
The team also has great players like Tom Benton and Pat Cummins. Morgan said, ‘I think the players we have give us better options, especially in batting and bowling. I think inside the team we have very versatile players, who can control the batting department especially.
