IPL 2021: The Kolkata Knight Riders had a forgettable Indian leg in IPL 2021. However, the Knight Riders bounced back strongly in the second phase of the competition in the UAE to end the season as runners-up.
Not many expected the Kolkata-based franchise to qualify for the playoffs. However, they defied the odds and beat almost every team in the competition to reach the 2021 IPL final.
However, they could not cross the final hurdle and were beaten by the Chennai Super Kings by 27 runs.
Although KKR failed to win the trophy, the team management would be delighted with the character that Eoin Morgan’s side showed.
Varun Chakravarthy may have failed to make an impact in the IPL final, but the mystery spinner was fantastic throughout the UAE leg of the competition. Charkavarthy was the most successful spin bowler in IPL 2021, scalping 18 wickets in 17 matches.
All-rounder Venkatesh Iyer played a vital role in the Kolkata Knight Riders’ resurgence in the UAE. The left-handed batter made his IPL debut against Royal Challengers Bangalore in KKR’s first game of the UAE leg.
Shubman Gill has been a consistent performer for the Kolkata Knight Riders over the last few years. He continued his good form in IPL 2021, ending as the team’s most successful batter.
