PV Sports Desk : England’s Eoin Morgan heaped praise on young Indian opener Shubman Gill after the batting duo led Kolkata Knight Riders to a comprehensive win in the Indian Premier League on Saturday.

Gill and Morgan put on an unbeaten fourth-wicket partnership of 92 as Kolkata chased down their target of 143 with two overs to spare and win by seven wickets against David Warner’s Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Gill top-scored with 70 off 62 deliveries and the left-handed Morgan hit the winning boundary in his 29-ball 42 as Kolkata recorded their first victory in two matches.

“I didn’t have to tell Gill a great deal to be honest, beautiful to watch,” Morgan, England’s limited-overs captain, said of his 21-year-old batting partner who was named man of the match.

“Good bat swing, very languid style, magnificent to watch. He’s good kid, very hungry to learn and I would love to bat with him once again.”
