Shardul came to bat when KKR was reeling at 89 for five. He smoked brilliant 68 off 29 and help KKR to post the petrifying target of 205. He also scored the joint fastest IPL fifty of the season. Thakur equaled Buttler’s record for the fastest fifty of the season so far. Buttler, the Rajasthan Royals opener and winner of the Orange Cap in 2022, scored a rapid half-century against Sunrisers Hyderabad on Sunday.
Following the match, Thakur was awarded player of the match award at the post match presentation. At the presentation, Thakur confessed he did not know where it came from. He credited the hard work that he put in during the nets and said that at times the subconscious takes over.
“I don’t even know where it came from but looking at the scorecard at that time, everyone would have thought we are struggling. But your subconscious mind takes over. You also have to have skills to do that at the higher level, but we also work hard in the nets. There is a period where we can slog it in the nets,” Thakur said at the presentation.
He also went on to thank the coach and the support staff for helping him deliver.
Coaching staff do the throwdowns, and give us the option of range-hitting. And you know the pitches – they always suit the batsmen, don’t they?” Thakur added.
Kolkata Knight Riders defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore by 81 runs at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Thursday, April 6. Varun Chakravarty scalped 4 wickets and Suyash Sharma bagged 3 wickets and demolished RCB in the chase of 205.
