IPL 2023: Rinku, Russell Shine As KKR Beat PBKS By 5 Wickets

Date:

Kolkata: The duo of Andre Russell and Rinku Singh keep Kolkata Knight Riders qualification hopes alive as they guide the side to a 5 wicket win against Punjab Kings.

Chasing the total of 183 runs, impact player Jason Roy managed to give a strong start to the innings.

Skipper Nitish Rana joined the chase and played a crucial knock of 51 runs in just 38 deliveries.

Rinku Singh and Andre Russell scored 21 and 42 runs respectively, chasing down the target.

Batting first, PBKS was reduced to 53/3 in the powerplay, a 53-run stand between Shikhar and in-form Jitesh Sharma (21) seemed to push PBKS back in the game.

But the visitors lost their direction once again. But in the final two overs, Shahrukh (21*) and Harpreet (17*) smashed 36 runs collectively, with 21 runs coming in the final over, to take PBKS to a fighting total.
