IPL Final: What was said?
Eoin Morgan, Knight Riders skipper: “In the first phase of the tournament we were always trying to implement Baz’s (Brendon McCullum) mantra of trying to play positive and aggressive cricket and a brand of cricket that our fans love. really watch and also the gamers enjoy playing.
“In the first phase, it didn’t quite happen. But throughout this second phase, people showed up with a different motivation and willingness to play this aggressive brand of cricket.
“I think our bowlers showed us how to be aggressive with the ball trying to take wickets and identify when to hold back and be a little more defensive and that also paved the way for hitting.”
