Kolkata Knight Riders were doing circuitous as the chase of 182 runs found out to be difficult for them to achieve. Andre Russell and Shubhman Gill were striving to get progressed, however, before the 18th over everything was under SRH when Siddarth Kaul came in to bowl the 18th over. Andre Russell, who once had a best strike rate decided to take the responsibility of winning the match. He started hitting 6 and 4s and routed the match ending to a one on one situation. None had expected that Andre Russell bat like this.
B. Kumar, who was captain for today, decided to ball the second last over, which went as a nugatory decision as Russell did not stop the smashing and in the end when an over was left the pinnacle changed to 13 runs in 6 balls. B. Kumar handed over the bowling to Shakib Al Hasan. However, it was not succeeded and Shubman Gill blasted 2 sixes to end the match with KKR off to an absolute win. Updating… … …
