He turned the match decisively for the Kolkata Knight Riders with his exceptional bowling and was surprised that Loki Ferguson’s favorite moment was dismissing Sunrisers Hyderabad skipper David Warner on the very first ball of the super over. The Kiwi fast bowler gave Warner just two runs in the super over with a full length ball to Abdul Samad and Yorker respectively. He took three wickets in the chase for Sunrisers Hyderabad at the time of the rule. KKR easily scored the required three runs to get the much-needed victory.
When asked about his favorite wicket in the match, Ferguson said, “Especially at the start of the Super Over, dismissing David Warner.”
“Morgs (Eoin Morgan) is very good to be in the first place with his calm and of course my plan was to play the whole game. Look, let’s win this game and enjoy today, it was a very good win. He said.
After the victory, KKR captain Morgan was relieved. He said, “It was great to come to Loki and perform in both the stages. We were trying to win the last two matches, not against Mumbai; we were competitive today,” he said.
Speaking about Andre Russell, who bowled in the final over and managed to drag the contest over the super over, Morgan said, “Dray went on the field, we thought he was injured. He came back and said he could bowl.”
“I think he showed a lot of character to bring us into the super overs because he didn’t start well. He’s a superstar player for us. Hopefully we’ll be a bit faster after that.”
Losing Captain Warner was a loss of words to express his feelings. “I don’t know where to start. At the end of the day, we made some slips, mostly in the middle overs and at the end of the back. For us, it’s about to end the game and we lost the last 2-3.” Occasionally, “he said.
“I don’t think you made the wrong call by asking KKR to bat first on this wicket,” Warner said.
“The two didn’t mind at first about bowling. I thought it was a good wicket that wouldn’t change and if it was a good thing it didn’t fit. It was close to 155. We lost the wicket at the crucial moment. There was negligence. He would need some physio work, “he said.
