News Daily Digital Desk: Kolkata Knight Riders reached Chennai for the third time with the oath to win the IPL. The first three matches of the tournament will be played in Chennai by Shah Rukh Khan’s team. Before that, preparations have been going on in Mumbai for so long. This time the last preparation is to go to Chennai. Then on Sunday, Eoin Morgan will play against Sunrisers Hyderabad. The entire team and support staff flew to Chennai on a chartered flight on Thursday. However, three cricketers, including Kuldeep Yadav and Lucky Ferguson, are already in quarantine at the team’s hotel in Chennai.
KKR could not go to the IPL play-off even after making a good start last time. Dinesh Karthik finished at number five in the group league. Karthik was removed in the middle of the tournament and Morgan was made the captain. This time, of course, Captain Morgan from the beginning. There have been some changes in the team. Shakib Al Hasan is back again. Experienced offspinner Harbhajan Singh has been auctioned off by KKR. Shakib’s inclusion will further strengthen the team. Harbhajan is expected to be very effective on the Chennai wicket. The biggest thing is that he played for Chennai Super Kings two years ago. As a result, Chip knows very well about the pitch.

KKR has only one place to think — the opening. Which has suffered well last time. I don’t think there will be a risk of opening with Sunil Narine this time. Rahul Tripathi will probably open with Shubhaman Gill. But there are worries about who will be the four foreigners. Morgan and Andre Russell confirmed. Pat Cummins, Sunil Narine and Shakib will play either. It was learned from the KKR camp that the final decision will be taken after seeing Chipak’s wicket.
