Bangla Hunt Desk: Just two more days to wait, then the most popular cricket tournament in the world, the Indian Premier League, is about to start. Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore will face each other in the opening match of the IPL on April 9. Kolkata Knight Riders start their IPL campaign with a match against Sunrisers Hyderabad on April 11.
But before that, the whole Kolkata Knight Riders team is practicing. And the team was trained by head coach Brandon McCullum. Former Kolkata Knight Riders player and former New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum was brought in as coach by KKR team management last year. However, last year IPL did not go very well for KKR, KKR could not get to the play-offs. However, this year Kolkata Knight Riders are quite optimistic not only about the play-offs but also about winning the trophy.
Even before the start of the IPL, Kolkata Knight Riders head coach Brandon McCullum took a fancy approach to improve the team’s fielding. On this day, he appeared with a tennis bat and hit the ball hard with a tennis bat, making McCallum practice catching every player on the team. Special importance is given to the senior cricketers of the team including Harbhajan Singh in this practice session. And that’s where one of the team’s fittest cricketers, Andre Russell, missed a strong smack of McCallum. However, the next ball was again palpated in a great way by Russell, the other members of the team applauded Russell to catch.
