The 31st match of the IPL saw an intense clash between Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals. The spectators of Eden Gardens witnessed a different kind of madness. Batters from both teams played exceptionally well. While bowling, KKR’s most expensive bowler Mitchell Starc continued struggling. 

KKR’s bowling attack began with Starc conceding 11 runs in the opening over, hinting at a high-scoring chase ahead. During the powerplay, Starc bowled two overs, gave away 24 runs, and failed to take any wickets. He returned to bowl the 10th over, allowing 8 runs. Shreyas Iyer‘s decision to use his most seasoned and costly player during crucial moments of the chase did not work out as planned. He conceded 50 runs in 4 overs with an economy rate of 12.50. 

Irfan Pathan’s Words: 

The seasoned Australian fast bowler, known for his powerful yorker deliveries, was bought by KKR for a record ₹24.75 crore. In KKR’s close loss, Starc conceded 50 runs in four overs with an economy rate of 12.50. In the 18th over, he allowed 18 runs. That was a huge setback for the team.

Starc has not been in the form since the beginning. Starc displayed glimpses of his former brilliance in Kolkata’s 8-wicket victory over Lucknow Super Giants, but he struggled again against the Rajasthan Royals. Ex-Indian captain Irfan Pathan shared his thoughts on Starc’s recent performance. He said, “Most expensive player in your team can’t be your weak link.”

The recent defeat was their second defeat in this season so far. Their next match is scheduled with Royal Challengers Bengaluru on April 21 at Eden Gardens. Fans are anticipating a thrilling match between these two teams.
