Narine will be fine: Kallis

KKR’s crucial player Sunil Narine was injured during the first match and didn’t open the innings.

However KKR coach Kallis stated that he doesn’t think the injury is too bad and he feels Narine will come through.

He explained that It’s just a soft tissue and he is a hard guy, so he is sure he will be fine.

About Narine’s batting he said that Narine hurt his finger in the field. Plus, there are a few tactical things which they will keep changing throughout the season so that they don’t become predictable.

Delhi may continue to miss Morris

Chris Morris has been an integral part of Delhi’s unit over the years. He bats in the middle order and also delivers quality pace bowling.

However the all-rounder wasn’t available for the first match and may also miss the DC vs CSK in IPL 2019 as he arrived in India only on Monday.

So Delhi may once again go ahead with Trent Boult and Kagiso Rabada as their cheif pacemen and use Kemo Paul as an all-rounder.
