IPL 2022 KKR Vs LSG Shreyas Iyer Reaction On KKR Defeat Against LSG
Shreyas Iyer on KKR Defeat: Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) were face to face in the IPL on Saturday night. In this match, Lucknow defeated Kolkata by a huge margin of 75 runs. After this defeat, the chances of KKR’s playoffs have weakened. After the match, when captain Shreyas Iyer was asked the reason for the defeat, he pointed out the weak performance of the team in the powerplay and death overs.
Shreyas Iyer said, ‘Lucknow’s team dominated us in both the bowling and batting areas. He bowled brilliantly in the powerplay. He started well in batting too. During Lucknow’s batting, we did come back in the middle overs but in the death overs he again took the match away from us. Powerplay and death overs are the areas where we need to improve. Hopefully, in the next match, we will overcome these shortcomings.
Shreyas Iyer further said, ‘It was not so easy to read the wicket. So we chose to bowl first. We found that the balls are coming to a halt and there are two types of pace on the pitch. A score of 155-160 runs on this pitch is a lot but Lucknow created problems for us by scoring more runs than this.
