new Delhi. Last time runners-up Kolkata Knight Riders have set a target of 129 runs in front of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB vs KKR) in the sixth match of IPL 2022. In this match, KKR scored 128 runs in 18.5 overs in Mumbai’s DY Patil Sports Academy. Andre Russell scored the highest 25 runs for KKR. Russell hit one four and three sixes in 18 balls. For RCB, spinner Wanindu Hasaranga took the maximum 4 wickets for 20 runs in four overs.
Earlier, RCB captain Faf du Plessis won the toss and invited KKR to bat first. KKR didn’t start well. He lost wickets at regular intervals. Only 14 runs were added to the total score that Akashdeep caught opener Venkatesh Iyer on his own ball and sent him to the pavilion. Venkatesh scored 10 runs in 14 balls. Ajinkya Rahane also could not do anything special and went on after scoring 9 runs in 10 balls.
Rahane was caught by fast bowler Mohammad Siraj at the hands of Shahbaz Ahmed. Rahane’s wicket fell on the score of 32. KKR’s team had not even recovered from the two initial blows that Akashdeep gave the third blow to KKR by catching Nitish Rana at the hands of Willie. Rana returned to the pavilion after scoring 10 runs off 5 balls with the help of a four and a six.
After the initial 3 wickets fell on the score of 44, all eyes were on the captain Shreyas Iyer, but he also disappointed. Shreyas was caught by spinner Wanindu Hasaranga at the hands of Du Plessis and KKR’s score was 4 for 46. Shreyas scored 13 runs in 10 balls with the help of two fours. Sunil Narine definitely made some good shots but he could also stay at the crease for a long time.
Hasaranga caught Sunil at the hands of Akashdeep and made his second victim. Narayan played an innings of 12 runs in 8 balls with the help of a four and a six. Hasaranga did not even allow wicketkeeper Sheldon Jackson to open the account, while Sam Billings was shown the way to the pavilion by Harshal Patel on a personal score of 14.
