Dominant Batting Display by Kolkata Knight Riders

Kolkata Knight Riders put on a commanding batting performance after winning the toss and electing to bat first. Led by explosive innings from Sunil Narine, who scored 85 runs off just 39 balls, including 7 fours and 7 sixes, and Angrish Raghuvanshi, contributing with 54 runs off 27 balls, Kolkata set a formidable target of 273 runs for Delhi Capitals. Andre Russell’s aggressive knock of 41 runs off 19 balls further bolstered Kolkata’s innings, as they posted a challenging total of 272/7 in their 20 overs.

Delhi Capitals’ Struggle to Chase Down the Target

In pursuit of Kolkata’s imposing total, Delhi Capitals faced early setbacks with Prithvi Shaw, Mitchell Marsh, and Abhishek Porel failing to make an impact at the top order. Despite Rishabh Pant’s valiant effort, scoring a quickfire 55 runs off 25 balls, including 5 sixes and 4 fours, Delhi’s batting lineup faltered against Kolkata’s bowling attack. With wickets falling at regular intervals, Delhi Capitals could only manage to score 166 runs in their allotted 20 overs, losing all their wickets in the process.
