IPL 2020 | KKR out after SRH beat Mumbai Indians

Kolkata Knight Riders are out of the Indian Premier League. Sunrisers Hyderabad are in.

This was made possible after SRH win against Mumbai Indians in the final league tie. And Kolkata Knight Riders’ campaign came to an end. The equation was – for KKR to make it to the playoffs, MI needed to beat SRH. However, the two-time IPL champions had to pack their bags as Sunrisers thrashed the defending champions to become the fourth and final team to enter the playoffs.

KKR finished fifth on the points-table with 14 points from seven matches, and it was their net-run rate that dented their chances of making the top four, with Mumbai Indians, Delhi Capitals, Royal Challengers Bangalore and SRH emerging as the top four teams entering the playoffs. Morgan was appointed captain of the team in the middle of the tournament, with the management informing of Dinesh Karthik’s decision to hand over the reigns to the World Cup winning captain from England in order to concentrate more on batting.

But the change in guard didn’t really help KKR as under Morgan, the team won only three matches, while emerging victorious in four while Karthik as captain. Morgan ended the tournament with 418 runs from 14 matches, including a career-best 68 not out against Rajasthan Royals in KKR’s final league game.
