Kolkata Knight Riders skipper Eoin Morgan has said his team will be dangerous in the second leg of the Indian Premier League 2021. KKR is currently sitting the seventh place in the points table with two wins out of seven games they have played so far.

Morgan believes KKR has nothing to lose and this makes his team very dangerous for other teams.

“We need to just look at it in one way — we absolutely control everything from here, there is no looking behind,” Morgan said during a virtual press conference ahead of their match against Royal Challengers Bangalore.

“We need to find a way of getting results and everyone in the team, fans know that that can make for very exciting watching because it makes us a very dangerous side with nothing to lose.”

Talking about the youngsters in his team, Morgan has hoped for them to be in a good rhythm.

“They have played a lot and are developing really well. They always look in great form and look good on the eye. Hopefully they can get back into the rhythm of things,” he added.

Tim Southee has replaced Pat Cummins for the second leg and KKR will hope him to come good.

“Tim Southee is fine international cricketer who has been there for a very very long time, huge amount of experience and he has also played in the IPL. He has fitted in nicely and will hopefully contribute to the squad going forward.”

Morgan is optimistic for his team’s chances to make it to the playoffs in the IPL 2021.

“We fell short of qualifying for the playoffs last time, I felt that we were playing some really good cricket and peaking at the right time, small margins hurt us, not going ahead on net run rate but we feel pretty much at home here in Abu Dhabi,” he said.
