On Tuesday, Kolkata Knight Riders lost their chance to qualify for the playoffs after Sunrisers Hyderabad thumped table-toppers Mumbai Indians by 10 wickets. The match was played at the iconic Sharjah Cricket Stadium. With this win, the orange army booked the fourth spot thanks to a better net run rate.

Positioned at fifth, the purple and gold outfit KKR had done well. The franchise could manage to win seven matches out of 14 in the league stage. Albeit, the season might have not concluded in their favour, the team management must be ecstatic as the players bounced back hard against Rajasthan Royals in their last league match.

Surprisingly, Eoin Morgan was handed the team’s captaincy midway through the tournament. In seven games, the England captain led KKR to three wins. He also scored a 35-ball 68* runs knock against Rajasthan Royals in the do-or-die clash. Eventually, the in-form skipper powered his side to an impressive 60-run win.

Meanwhile, before departing from the UAE, Kolkata Knight Riders skipper Eoin Morgan decided to pay a visit to Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque with his wife on Wednesday.

Taking to his social media handle, the Ireland-born cricket star shared a beautiful picture wherein he can be seen wearing the traditional Islamic attire along with his wife. It is understood that the duo is posing inside the spectacular mosque. As soon as Morgan posted the picture, the social media went berserk.

The World Cup winner expressed his emotions after visiting the mosque through the caption, “Lovely morning in the beautiful Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque Mosque,” wrote Eoin Morgan while posting a photo from the visit.

Fans showered Eoin Morgan with love and happiness 

Many of his fans were left amazed and heaped praises for showing this kind gesture by visiting the holy place. The England captain will be returning to his national duty. The Brits will be locking horns against South Africa later this year.

With the exit from IPL 2020, the two-time title contenders KKR will be hoping to come back stronger in the upcoming season of the cricketing carnival.
