KKR beat Punjab Kings at Eden Gardens on Monday. He has three wickets in his own possession. Still, Varun Chakraborty can’t be happy. He urged his fellow bowlers to make more use of the home field advantage. According to Varun, they have to bowl better.

Varun said during the match on Monday,

“We have to bowl better at home. It is already difficult to bowl in Eden. So we should uses variations in bowling and take advantage out of it. Eden Gardens has flat wicket, as well as shorter boundaries. Apart from that, if we play well at home, we can do well in all competitions. It is tough to bowl to batters like Dhawan to bowl on such pitches. So by maintaining the right line and length, success is possible.”

The statistics of the tournament show that the Kolkata spinners have taken the most wickets. Varun, Sunil Narine, Suyash Sharma, Nitish Rana have nearly 40 wickets together. But they are not able to use that advantage at home. He is a little annoyed with that.

However, he is impressed with captain Nitish Rana. He admitted that it was Nitish’s support that gave him confidence. Varun said,

“Nitish supports me all the time. It was his support that helped me to succeed.”
