IPL 2021- PBKS vs RR: IPL’s costliest player Chris Morris fails to deliver in death overs for Rajasthan Royals- Chris Morris, who was bought for Rs 16.25 crore, in IPL auctions has failed to deliver in the death overs for RR in their opening match of IPL 2021 against Punjab Kings. Morris was hit for 25 runs in his last two overs. He gave away 14 runs and 11 runs in the 16th and 18th over. But, the pacer was able to take two wickets in the 18th over. He ended with figures of 4-0-41-2 in the match.
Rajasthan Royals gave away 60 runs in the last 5 overs as Punjab Kings reached 221/5 in their 20 overs.
Chris Morris is the costliest IPL player ever to play the Indian Premier League.
In the match, KL Rahul’s calm and composed knock, aided by Deepak Hooda’s belligerent hitting, helped Punjab Kings set a 222-run target for Rajasthan Royals in game four of the Indian Premier League (IPL) here on Monday evening at the Wankhede.
Rahul scored 91 runs off just 50 balls while Hooda set the Wankhede on fire with his 64-run knock from just 28 deliveries with the help of 4 fours and 6 sixes as Punjab posted 221/6 in their allotted 20 overs. Chris Gayle also chipped in with a valuable 40.
Hooda was sent ahead of Nicholas Pooran at number four and the right-hander justified the call as he dispatched RR spinners to all parts of the ground. Hooda and Rahul continued with their carnage in the death overs and Rajasthan bowlers were left searching for answers.
