KKR Loses against CSK in IPL 2021.
KKR vs CSK Match Highlights:
Chennai Super Kings: 220/3 in 20 overs (Du Plessis 95 *, Rituraj 74, Varun 1/26)
Kolkata Knight Riders: 202 in 19.1 overs (Cummins 8 *, Russell 54, Deepak 4/29)
Chennai Super Kings won by 16 runs.
Bad bowling and even worse top-order batting are the double knights. KKR would have been embarrassed had it not been for Russell’s storming half-century, Karthik’s 40, and Cummins’ unbeaten six in the final innings. Because the Knights lost five wickets in the beginning to chase the target of 221 runs given by Chennai Super Kings. However, these three batsmen kept the team fighting. But in the end, Chennai won. Morgan was bowled out for 202 in 19.1 overs.
Knight captain Eoin Morgan decided to field first after winning the toss on Wednesday. But the KKR captain’s decision boomeranged. Rituraj Gaikwad and Faf Du Plessis added 115 runs in the opening over. Again in just 12.2 overs. Rituraj scored 64 off 42 balls. He hit 6 fours and 4 sixes. This time no night bowler could bring wickets to the team. Even Narine, who got a chance to replace Shakib, failed to bring success to the team this time. In the end, Varun broke the tie by dismissing Rituraj. Then Moin Ali made 25 runs from 12 balls.
At number four, Chennai captain Dhoni scored 18 runs off 8 balls. The former India captain also hit his first six of the tournament on the same day. Dhoni’s fans are seen expressing their excitement on social media again. Du Plessis, meanwhile, played an innings of 95 off just 60 balls. Although he did not score a century for a short while, this Proteas batsman remained undefeated in the end. He hit 9 fours and 4 sixes. In the end, Chennai scored 220 for 3 in the allotted 20 overs. Among the KKR bowlers, Varun, Narine, and Russell took one wicket each.
Chasing the huge target of 221 runs, the night batting lineup collapsed at the beginning. Kolkata lost five wickets for just 31 runs in 5.2 overs. Gill (0), Rana (9), Tripathi (6), Morgan (6), and Narine (4) – all failed with the bat. Deepak Chahar took four wickets out of five. A drink lungi ngidi. This time, Dhoni also set a record of 150 dismissals in the IPL as a wicketkeeper. However, despite losing five wickets quickly, the Russell-Karthik duo tried to get KKR back in the game. Russell continued to bat in a destructive mood to increase the declining run rate.
Of course, Delhi seemed to be really far away. In the end, however, the Caribbean star was bowled by Sam Curran after playing a devastating inning of 54 off 22 balls. Maren 3 fours and 6 sixes. On the contrary, Dinesh Karthik also got out after some time. His collection was 40 off 24 balls. In the end, Cummins (6 off 34 balls) tried hard. But, that was not enough to beat Dhoni’s CSK in IPL 2021.
