Kolkata beat Chennai in their own home
KKR won by six wickets
New Delhi. Kolkata Knight Riders made the IPL 2023 playoff equation more complicated by defeating Chennai Super Kings at their home. Keeping their hopes alive, KKR has created an if-but situation for many teams. Batting first after winning the toss in the match played on Sunday, Chennai scored 144 runs losing six wickets in 20 overs. In response, Kolkata achieved this target by losing four wickets in 18.3 overs. The victory over CSK gave Kolkata players an opportunity to celebrate. This incident is also related to the celebration of KKR.
It is about the last IPL season. There was a match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Mumbai Indians. Batting first, Mumbai put 161 runs on the board. KKR got off to a bad start chasing the run. On one side, Venkatesh Iyer remained firm, but on the other side, the fall of difficulties also continued. At one time when it seemed that KKR would lose the match, Pat Cummins’s bat started spewing fire.
Cummins gave victory to Kolkata by playing an inning of 56 runs in just 15 balls. Pat Cummins himself did not believe in his innings. Now how would the happiness of fellow players remain? KKR all-rounder Andre Russell started dancing in a very funny way. Seeing him dancing like this, co-owner of KKR and Bollywood’s Pathan Shahrukh Khan said that I also want to dance like this.

Pat Cummins equaled KL Rahul’s fastest IPL half-century by scoring a half-century in just 14 balls. Cummins said after the match that I think I was most surprised by this innings. Glad I played this innings. I was thinking of playing big shots when the ball comes close. It is clear from Cummins that it is not easy for the batsmen to contain themselves after getting the ball in their zone. As long as luck favors the batters continue to beat the bowlers on the basis of their talent. As Rinku Singh is doing for Kolkata Knight Riders this time.
