RCB vs KKR IPL 2023




RCB vs KKR, IPL 2023: Opener Jason Roy’s half-century and skipper Nitish Rana’s flamboyant innings helped Kolkata Knight Riders win IPL 2023 In the 36th match, they defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore by 21 runs and broke the sequence of four consecutive defeats. Chasing the Knight Riders’ target of 201 runs, RCB’s team could only manage 179 runs for eight wickets despite the half-century of captain Virat Kohli (54 runs in 37 balls, six fours). Apart from them, only Mahipal Lomror (34) and Dinesh Karthik (22) could cross the 20-run mark.

KKR had given a target of 201 runs

For Kolkata Knight Riders, leg-spinners Varun Chakraborty (three wickets for 27 runs) and Suyash Sharma (two wickets for 30 runs) took five wickets together. Andre Russell (2 for 29) also took two wickets. Knight Riders had earlier scored a strong score of 200 runs for five wickets with the innings of Roy (56 runs in 29 balls, five sixes and four fours) and captain Rana (48 runs in 21 balls, four sixes, three fours).

RCB had lost 3 wickets in the powerplay itself.

RCB got off to a bad start chasing the target and the team lost three wickets for 58 runs in the power play. Captain Faf Duplesey (17), who landed as an impact player, hit Umesh Yadav for two consecutive sixes but Suyash’s ball was played in the hands of Rinku Singh at the boundary. Suyash then trapped Shahbaz Ahmed (02) lbw while Glenn Maxwell (05) caught David Voisey off Chakraborty’s bowling.

Kohli played half-century innings

Captain Kohli, however, stuck to one end. he/she opened the account with a four on debutant Vaibhav Arora and then hit two consecutive fours on Suyash. Lomror hit Sunil Narine for two sixes while Kohli completed the team’s century in the 11th over with a four off Suyash and then scored his/her fifth half-century of the current tournament in 33 balls with two runs in the same over. Kohli played an inning of 54 runs in 37 balls.

No batsman except Kohli

Apart from Virat Kohli, Mahipal Lomror definitely scored runs for RCB, but the rest of the team’s batsmen disappointed. In particular, players like Glenn Maxwell and Faf du Plessis were left cheap. Faf du Plessis scored 17 runs off 7 balls, but could not convert the fast start into a big innings. At the same time, Glenn Maxwell went on to score 5 runs in 4 balls. Apart from this, Dinesh Karthik played a slow inning of 22 runs in 18 balls. At the same time, Varun Chakraborty took the maximum 3 wickets for KKR. While Andre Russell and Suyash Sharma took 2-2 wickets.
