Kolkata Knight Riders Skipper Gautam Gambhir Says Picking Quality Bowlers in IPL 7 Auction Helped Them Win

With bowlers like Morne Morkel, Sunil Narine, Piyush Chawla and Shakib-al-Hasan, Kolkata Knight Riders undoubtedly had the best bowling attack in Indian Premier League 2014. The fact that they conceded only 170-plus runs in the league games before the IPL final says it all.

Bengaluru: Kolkata Knight Riders skipper Gautam Gambhir on Monday said the 'master move' of picking quality bowlers, instead of buying big batting names during February auction helped the team to pocket its second Indian Premier League title.

"When we went into the auction, we wanted a good bowling attack. A lot of teams might have thought of having a very good batting line-up in the T20 format. A strong bowling attack takes a lot of pressure off batting. But we have batted brilliantly as well," said Gambhir in the post-match presser. (Celebration pics)
