New Delhi. In the 61st match of IPL 2023, Rinku Singh’s magic once again worked. Along with captain Nitish Rana, Rinku Singh formed a 99-run partnership and gave Kolkata Knight Riders a six-wicket win against Chennai Super Kings. Both scored half-centuries in this match. With this, KKR has retained its hopes of reaching the playoffs by scoring two points. They have six wins after 13 matches.

Shivam Dubey scored an unbeaten 48 off 34 balls with the help of one four and three sixes to take Chennai to a competitive score. There was a time when Chennai lost five wickets for 72 runs in the 11th over but Dubey made a 53-ball 68-run partnership for the sixth wicket with Ravindra Jadeja. Jadeja gave 24 runs in 20 balls.

Earlier, Devon Conway scored 30 runs in 28 balls. He shared a 30-run partnership with Ruturaj Gaikwad for the first wicket and a 30-run partnership with Ajinkya Rahane for the second wicket.
