Morgan said in a press conference after an 18-run defeat against Chennai Super Kings, “It is all about the process.”
Chennai scored 220 for three in this big-score match and then dismissed KKR for 202 runs. Morgan’s team lost five wickets for 31 runs during the powerplay.
Morgan said, ‘We have good batsmen in the lower order as well and this is our strong side. We have experienced batsmen in the middle and lower order and today we saw this. ‘
KKR managed to reach the 200-run mark with superb innings from Andre Russell, Pat Cummins and Dinesh Karthik but could not reach the target.
Morgan said he is proud of his team’s comeback.
He said, ‘We are proud that we brought the match so close and in fact we were in a position to win. Pat Cummins, in particular, batted great in the end.
