The News Cover: KKR bowling returns to rhythm, albeit late. In fact, this time KKR's bowling was not supposed to be such a misfortune. The team has 15 crore pacer Pat Cummins. Besides, there are talented bowlers like Sunil Narine, famous Krishna, Varun Chakraborty. The KKR coach repeatedly claimed before the start of the tournament, this time their team is balanced. But he did not say wrong. However, from the start of the tournament, KKR's bowling was in a state of disarray. The famous Krishna was losing line length again and again. The less said Pat Cummins, the better. But it was KKR's bowling department that came back against the Punjab Kings on Monday. Despite having batsmen like Chris Gayle, KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal, Punjab got stuck at just 123 runs.

Gayle was afraid of the storm. But Shivam Mavi stopped before the storm started. He returned Chris Gayle for zero. Shivam picked up Gayle with just 13 runs off four overs. Bowling at his measured length repeatedly caused problems for the Punjab batsmen. The Kings batsmen were able to hit only one boundary in Shivam's four overs. The Kings batsmen could not play him in the power play. So far, Shivam Mavi of Noida has played only two matches in the IPL. He has proved his worth in both the matches. However, the question has already arisen, why KKR has not used the talent like Shivam Mavi properly for so long! Why he was not played in the first four matches! He made his debut against Rajasthan Royals. He took a wicket with only 19 runs in four overs.

Already questions have been raised about the captaincy of KKR captain Eoin Morgan. That question became even stronger as talent like Mavi was not given a chance for so long. Captain Morgan does not know, however, who is the real strength of his team! Sunil Narine was not played from the beginning. KKR wanted to see Shakib Al Hasan in his place. But Shakib could not do anything in the spinning truck. Narine took two wickets against Punjab. He dismissed Mayank Agarwal. However, Rahul Tripathi caught a great catch by Mayank. Narine then dismissed Mess Henriques. Pat Cummins bowled three overs and scored 30 runs. Got two wickets. Famous Krishna took three wickets with 30 runs in 4 overs.
