Kolkata Knight Riders registered a huge 86 runs win over Rajasthan Royals in their final league fixture last night and also solidified their 4th spot finish in the IPL 2021 playoffs. KKR posted a video on their Twitter handle giving a sneak peak at the post-match dressing room vibes including a rousing speech from Dinesh Karthik.
In the video, Kolkata Knight Riders’ players are seen delighted after their thumping victory over Rajasthan Royals in Sharjah. While Harbhajan Singh, Eoin Morgan, Lockie Ferguson and Rahul Tripathi shared their joy, what catches the attention is Dinesh Karthik’s rousing speech. Check out the video –

In the video, Kolkata Knight Riders wicketkeeper batter Dinesh Karthik says, “We played in right spirit. You know you have a smile on your face but make sure if anybody does beat us it has to be a real hard game not an easy one and I think we have epitomized this in this leg in UAE.”
“It feels great to win today’s game especially with such a huge margin. You know, it just feels good that we played brand of cricket which is very good. It was a hard wicket to bat on. We used our brains, openers batted really well through the middle, we were able to put some pressure and finished well at the end and then the bowlers did their thing,” Karthik further added.
Kolkata Knight Riders’ 86 runs win over Rajasthan Royals has almost completed the four spots in the IPL 2021 playoffs. Delhi Capitals, Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore had already taken the top three spots in the playoffs and KKR’s last win has almost shut the door for Mumbai Indians’ who will be playing their final fixture against SRH today. Mumbai Indians have to win by around 171 runs after scoring 200 to get past KKR’s NRR. If they chase, they can’t go beyond KKR’s NRR
