KKR VS RR MATCH-56 IPL23
RAJASTHAN ROYALS WON BY 9 WICKETS
KOLKATA KNIGHT RIDERS
LOCATION – Eden Gardens, Kolkata
Two records were broken, history was made, and it was a night to remember. Yashasvi Jaiswal scored a half-century in just 13 balls after Yuzi Chahal had become the greatest wicket taker in the league. After winning the toss, RR made the right decision to bowl first and held KKR to just 37 runs in 6 overs. The RR spinners, especially Yuzi Chahal, who picked up four wickets while giving nothing up to the opposition, dominated the middle over slab. KKR was downsized to only 149. In response, Jaiswal scored 26 runs in the first over from Nitish Rana, and the momentum remained unchanged after that. Jaiswal finished unbeaten with 98 (47) for the Royals, and Samson played second fiddle, hitting 48 from 29. A victory like this will increase RR’s NRR, which will undoubtedly help them advance in the competition.
Player of the Game is Yashasvi Jaiswal.
Yashasvi Jaiswal said “My constant thought is to perform well in my daily activities. Despite my best preparation and self-confidence, not everything I intended happened. I am confident in the timing of the outcomes. It felt amazing to make the game-winning shot because that was my goal all along. I wanted to play until the end. I do my best and consider myself fortunate. In my opinion, Sanju Samson and I were solely concerned with completing the game quickly and had the net run rate as our only thought. It seems to be a game-related occurrence, and it makes me accountable to do even better.”
