There is a playful style that Brendan McCullum adopted when he was captain and when he came to the crease with the label of opener. It was one of aggression. That method of unleashing an attack on the opposing camp from the first ball they face. Kolkata’s current captain Owen Morgan has also given his batsmen such a license to replace his international team and as a result the 2019 World Cup has reached the shelf of England. The same style was used to inject those two faces into Kolkata. But in the first quarter in India, the players could not implement it. The coach even shares the opinion that the players went down with a fearful mind set that they would lose the match there. Coming into the second quarter they saw a way to approach the game positively, with the intended intent. While Bangalore were all out for 92 in the first match, the 26-year-old Venkatesh Iyer took the chase from the start with the Killing Instinct. When Bolt’s first ball against Mumbai in the next match flies a six through a square leg, he makes it clear that he is focusing only on that ball and not on the bowler’s image. In fact, these 26 factors are responsible for the resurgence of Kolkata. With excellent hand and eye coordination and a beautiful pick of the bowler’s length, Kolkata’s start with Gill on those slow surfaces. His ability to cope with fast bowlers and spinners alike, and his ability to come into the game as a part – time bowler, quickly make him the player any team wants. It seems that temperament is what sets him apart from his abilities. Even though it was his first IPL season, the consistency and responsibility he maintains gives us great hope in that battery. After the match against Delhi, cricket expert and commentator Harsha Bhogle told the boy what every Indian fan has to say to him. “please carry that bowling with your batting ..!” He is changing the horoscope of Kolkata in the UAE leg.
