We’ll have a bowl. The wickets have been challenging in Dubai compared to this one. Two changes for us – Thampi replaces Khaleel, we have left out a spinner.

Eoin Morgan | KKR Skipper

We will have to improve our basics better, we didn’t do that against MI in our last match. Two changes for us – Kuldeep and Lockie in, for Green and Prasidh. We don’t want to rush Sunil back, we’ll give him some time.

Man of the Match

Lockie Ferguson | KKR

The team has been going well. A pleasure to get an opportunity and do well. We’ve obviously had a big sit with no cricket which is interesting back home. Had a couple of warm-ups and a lot of training sessions.

Always getting David Warner, especially the start of the Super Over was satisfying. It’s great having Morgs, we’ve both been part of this. Was good to use of his experience. Will take this win, enjoy tonight. It was a tough win on a very tough wicket.
