Dubai. Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) head coach Brendon McCullum has said that in the first phase of IPL (IPL 2021) when the corona epidemic spread in India, they were in a bad condition due to fear. KKR spinner Varun Chakraborty and fast bowler Sandeep Warrier were first found to be Corona positive in May, when the IPL was going on, after which the tournament was postponed midway. KKR did not perform well in the first half and the team is in seventh place, but McCullum expects the team to do better when the league resumes in the UAE from September 19.
He wrote on the website of Kolkata Knight Riders, “We will do well in the second leg. We have to boost each other’s morale and do well for the next four to five weeks.” “Last time during the first leg of the season I think we were too scared,” he said.
