I think Eoin is going to complement DK really well: Kyle Mills

Mills was all praises of England skipper Morgan and his leadership skills. The coach is all praises for

“Eoin Morgan has a lot of experience and also had successful campaigns for England. He doesn’t get flustered under pressure situations. So, you need leaders like that in a young group. I know leaders who panic and raise their voice.”

Kyle Mills is impressed by the bowling lineup of KKR this term

The 41-year-old former pacer has Harry Gurney, Lockie Ferguson and Andre Russell alongside Indian youngsters – Prasidh Krishna, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Sandeep Warrier and Shivam Mavi to work with. The bowling lineup is fierce at KKR and the opposition would surely fear their attacking bowlers. He mentioned Pat Cummins as the best fast bowler at the moment.

“Looking at the young local lads along with Pat, Harry, Lockie and Andre, I should say we have got some real firepower that we need to put a harness on to give the right direction. We have got a really heavy artillery. I guess Pat Cummins will be a superstar by the time he ends his career.

“He has been around for a while, and he is just 26-27 years of age. He is really young. We have got him in his prime. At this moment, without a question, he is the best fast bowler in the world. He has had a lot of injuries in the past but he is really fit now and has been bowling with great control and pace. And also, if you see his mannerism on the field, he is a great team player,” he maintained.

Andre is great with the bat but you can also pick him just for his bowling. He is very fast, has got some good variations and now he has got a lot of IPL and international experience. I am sure Andre is going to take his batting and bowling to the top level as an all-rounder. said Mills

“If you see the World Cup last year in England where New Zealand lost the final, Lockie was one of the best fast bowlers in the tournament. He bowled with great pace and swung the ball really well,” He had a little niggle during the home season in New Zealand but I am sure he will be fit and raring to go in the IPL. He hasn’t played cricket in the last five months so he is really excited to go out there and play with the white ball.” he added

KKR are staying at The Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi, Grand Canal. The area of the hotel is spread across 57 acres and KKR have booked the entire hotel complying to the norms. The supports staff and players present in the hotel and training will have to operate within the protocols of the bio-secure environment.
