Playing his first match in this year’s Indian Premier League Sunday, New Zealand fast bowler Lockie Ferguson showed the Kolkata Knight Riders what they’ve been missing with a fiery match-winning performance against the Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Eoin Morgan’s Kolkata finally handed an opportunity to the previously overlooked paceman in their ninth match of this year’s tournament, which is being played in the United Arab Emirates due to concerns over the Covid-19 pandemic in India.

The 29-year old Ferguson made full use of the chance, bowling fast and mixing his slower deliveries intelligently on a sluggish pitch to pick up three for 15 in his four overs.

Morgan then called on him ahead of Australian pace spearhead Pat Cummins to bowl the Super Over after Hyderabad skipper David Warner scored 17 off the final over but left the match tied, with each team scoring 163 from their 20 overs.

In just three balls, Ferguson claimed two scalps for two runs, including the wicket of Warner.

Kolkata comfortably chased down the target to complete their fifth victory.

England’s limited-overs captain Morgan said man-of-the-match Ferguson was “outstanding”.

Kolkata are fourth in the eight-team standing after the win.

Cummins, the world’s top-ranked Test bowler, said it was an easy decision to hand the white ball to Ferguson for the Super Over.
