Eoin Morgan (KKR):
We bowled for the same reasons, bowling equally well. We did well against DC, played the way we wanted. Our luck is still in our hands, that’s good. We have relied a lot on match-ups, it works many times, it doesn’t happen many times. André Russell is unfortunately still not fit, so the same team
KL Rahul (KXIP):
We will bowl first. Like aiming on the board, dew can be affected in the second innings as well. Winning gives the group a lot of confidence, it keeps them performing better and better. The back-room staff has been unprecedented even when the tournament began. No change in our team
