Kolkata Knight Riders won the toss and they decided to bat first. However, they got the second slowest start in the powerplay in IPL 2020. Because they lost Rahul Tripathi and Nitish Rana early. The miscommunication between Shubman Gill and Nitish Rana leads to the run out of Nitish. Eoin Morgan and Shubman Gill’s 49 runs partnership was crucial. Shubman Gill played an anchor’s role as he scored 57 runs in 47 balls. Dinesh Karthik played a captain’s knock. Because he scored 58 runs in just 29 balls. It was much needed for him. Mohammed Shami, Arshdeep, and Ravi Bishnoi took a wicket each. Arshdeep was impressive with his bowling. He picked a wicket and bowled a maiden over as well. However, he bowled extremely well in the death overs. Kings XI Punjab was going well in their chase. They scored 115 for 0 in 14.1 overs. KL Rahul scored 74 runs in 58 balls. Mayank Agarwal scored 56 in 39 balls. They were still going well when Pooran was batting. But, once he got out the middle order was exposed completely. They struggled to score runs. Prasidh Krishna and Sunil Narine starred in a close win as they picked three and two wickets. It seems like KKR has not won the match instead Kings xi Punjab has lost the match. Because they send Simran Singh ahead of Maxwell and Mandeep. It is a big failure in captaincy. Sunil Narine has to defend 14 runs in the final over. Maxwell struck a boundary in the third ball. The match went to the last ball. Six runs in one ball were needed for the super over. Glenn Maxwell was on strike and he hit a four. But, he missed a six by a couple of inches. Kolkata Knight Riders defeated Kings XI Punjab by 2 runs. But, It was a close game. Dinesh Karthik receives the Player of the Match award for his outstanding knock.
