Chasing a target of 177, Kolkata Knight Riders lost Baba Indrajith without any run on the board. But it was the beginning of the collapse. Shreyas Iyer, Aaron Finch both departed inside the powerplay while Nitish Rana departed in the 7th over.

Andre Russell with 19-ball 45 kept KKR’s hopes alive of a miracle but Avesh Khan dismissed him in the 13th over to put the final nail in the KKR coffin. Sunil Narine managed 22 and that was KKR’s batting card.

Avesh Khan was the star of the show with 3 wickets for 19 runs while Jason Holder also bagged three wickets for 31 runs. In the end, Kolkata Knight Riders were bowled out for 101 runs to lose the match by 75 runs.

A half-century from Quinton de Kock and some late fireworks from Marcus Stoinis and Jason Holder ensured that Lucknow Super Giants put on a competitive 176 on the board. LSG were struggling after some fine bowling for KKR, but Stoinis and Holder hit Mavi for 30 in an over to help their side to a good score on a two-paced wicket.

Lucknow had the worst possible start to their game as captain KL Rahul departed for a diamond duck.  De Kock eventually reached his half-century as he along with Deepak Hooda put on 73 for the second wicket. However, KKR clawed their way back with Narine striking to send back the South African for 50.

Krunal Pandya joined forces with Deepak Hooda and steadied the ship before the latter was dismissed by Andre Russell for 41. The Wet Indian teamed up with fellow countryman Sunil Narine to put the breaks on the LSG innings with Krunal Pandya and Ayush Badoni struggling to score at pace.

LSG seemed to be heading towards a below-par total when Marcus Stoinis and Jason Holder launched five sixes in the penultimate over to take the newcomers over the 160-run mark. Lucknow eventually had 176 on the board, giving their bowlers something to defend.

Lucknow Super Giants (1st, 16 Points): KL Rahul & Co jumped to the Top spot with that 75-run thrashing of Kolkata Knight Riders.

  • KKR have been virtually knocked out of Playoff race.
  • Even after winning all three remaining games, it may not be enough.
