Mumbai: Kolkata Knight Riders had all the requisite cricketing skills to emerge Indian Premier League champions against Chennai Super Kings on Sunday night. But they didn't ignore the mental aspect. The franchise should be commended for thinking about this vital aspect which set them apart from other teams in the competition. By appointing Dr Rudi Webster, Knight Riders covered all areas in a way.
They chose well. After all, Dr Webster had been successful in his work with top cricketers like Sir Viv Richards and fellow West Indian batting legend Brian Lara. He now takes up an assignment at the National Cricket Academy where he will work with young Indian players. Dr Webster shared his thoughts on a memorable IPL season with MiD DAY yesterday.
