As it happened:
Firstly, it was the show from Robin Uthappa, Nitish Rana and Andre Russell, which helped the team to post a massive total on the board. Later, it was a collective bowling effort, which did the trick. Once again, Andre Russell was the star of the match, who ended up collecting the man of the match award.
In their first game against Sunrisers Hyderabad, Andre Russell was the man for them to snatch victory from the jaws of a defeat. The two consecutive wins kept them on top of the table with a healthy Net-Run-Rate.
All in all, it was a sweet victory for Kolkata Knight Riders. Now, they will make their way to the capital city of the country Delhi to play the home-based franchise on Saturday night.
