New Delhi: Kolkata Knight Riders captain Dinesh Karthik looked very happy after defeating Kings XI Punjab by 2 runs in a thrilling match. He said after winning the match- the way Rahul and Mayank batted, we hoped that we would have to do something special to get back in the game. The way Varun and Prasad have bowled in their first game. She is quite good While sending Eoin Morgan to bat first, McCullum said - Coach Brandon McCullum is encouraging me to bat higher in the order but I am looking at what the team needs. I have to give him credit for putting him in this place.

At the same time, Karthik also looked disappointed after the team's star all-rounder Andre Russell was injured. He said- whenever Russell is injured, you know it is difficult. He is a very special player, he is a very special person. We need to see that. Hopefully, his injury will not be more fatal. 

At the same time, Karthik spoke on the famous spinner Krishna, saying that the way he rebounded and bowled in the second spell shows how good he is. At the same time, if it is about Sunil Narayan, then he has been standing for us for a long time. He is calm. He always finds the best way to contribute to the team. A lot of credit needs to be given to Morgan and McCullum, not just Sunil. I am lucky
