Former India wicketkeeper-batsman Deep Dasgupta thinks Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) leg-spinner Varun Chakraborty’s game is difficult because he bowls fast and straight and is always on the batter.
Chakraborty (// 1) performed brilliantly as Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). KKR defeated RCB by 9 wickets in the 31st match of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2021) in Abu Dhabi on Monday.
Analyzing Chakraborty’s great efforts against the RCB, Dasgupta pointed to the qualities that make Legi a tough offer for a batsman in T20 cricket.
“The area in which he bowled (very well). He was bowling fast, he kept very straight and was attacking the stumps. Clearly, his bowling has that mystery angle. It’s hard to choose whether it’s going to be off-spinner or leg-spinner.
As long as you’re attacking the stumps, you’re putting pressure on the batsmen. It is not easy to get out or sweep at the speed at which he bowls because he bowls fast, ”Dasgupta said in an interview with ESPN Cricinfo.
Chakraborty cleared a struggling Glenn Maxwell (10) that fell inside and out. Sachin Baby () died near a googly and Wanindu Hasaranga (0) came to the front and got stuck.
“Lots of communication between DK and Chakraborty in Tamil” – Dasgupta
Although he is not sure about it, Dasgupta thinks that having Dinesh Karthik behind the stumps can help Chakraborty. He mentioned that the two often spoke Tamil.
“It is also interesting to see that there is a lot of communication between DK (Dinesh Karthik) and Varun Chakraborty in Tamil. It is almost the same as Kuldeep Yadav / Yuzbendra Chahal and MS Dhoni. It is important to understand that he can do so well even if he has a DK behind the stumps. “
Apart from Chakraborty, KKR all-rounder Andre Russell has also played with the ball. The West Indies finished with a great figure of three for nine, his scalps including one of AB de Villiers’ big impeccable yorkers.
Openers Shubhaman Gill (48 off 34 balls) and Venkatesh Iyer (41 not out off 27) were present at the glittering opening stand after KKR restricted RCB to 92 in 19 overs. Chase.
