KKR veteran Dinesh Karthik, captain Eoin Morgan, Shubman Gill, Varun Chakravarthy and Prasidh Krishna can be seen in the video reciting the following poem.
Where the mind is without fear
Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high Where knowledge is free Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow domestic walls; Where words come out from the depths of truth; Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection; Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way into the dreary desert sand of dead habit; Where the mind is led forward by thee into ever-widening thought and action into that heaven of freedom, my father, let my country awake.
Eoin Morgan’s side is back with a bang. They now have a good chance to qualify for Playoffs. They are currently at No. 5 with 3 victories in 8 matches. With 6 remaining games, KKR needs 4 more victories to qualify
In remaining matches, KKR have to lock horns with Delhi Capitals (DC), Punjab Kings (PBKS), Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), Rajasthan Royals (RR), Mumbai Indians (MI), and Chennai Super Kings (CSK).
