KKR’s Playoff Hopes Still Alive After RCB’s Loss Against PBKS

Supporters of Kolkata Knight Riders had hoped on Friday that Royal Challengers Bangalore would lose. That hope was fulfilled. Virat Kohli, Faf Duplessis lost to Punjab.

Punjab batted first and scored 209 runs. That’s when they cleared the way for victory. After that, the path became smooth as soon as Virat was returned. Johnny Bairstow and later Liam Livingstone played hard innings for Punjab. Bairstow made 6 off 29 balls. The English batsman hit seven sixes. Livingstone made 60 runs. Punjab made 209 runs in their power. Punjab won and rose to sixth place with 12 points. Their hopes of reaching the play-offs remained. Kolkata’s hopes were dashed when RCB lost.

No RCB batsman has been able to give the team confidence in that way. Virat made 20 runs. Faf Duplessis made 10 runs. Rajit Patidar and Glenn Maxwell’s 84-run partnership was not enough. Kagiso Rabada took three wickets for Punjab. He also took the huge wicket. Rishi Dhawan and Rahul Chahar took two wickets each.

The 61st match of IPL 2022 to be held on Saturday is hope for KKR to reach the playoffs. At the same time, the team has high hopes for Venkatesh Iyer, Ajinkya Rahane, and Shreyas Iyer to bat in this match. Apart from these, there are expectations from Nitish Rana, Andre Russell, and Rinku Singh in the middle order. At the same time, as a wicketkeeper, KKR can also give Baba Inderjit a chance in place of Sheldon Jackson in this match.

These bowlers will be expected

Where on one hand, due to the muscle strain of KKR’s star bowler Umesh Yadav, his playing in this match is almost negligible. On the other hand, Pat Cummins has also been injured and has also been out of the rest of the matches of this season. In such a situation, it is a matter of great concern for KKR.

Apart from these, now Sunil Narine, Tim Southee, and Varun Chakraborty, apart from all-rounder Andre Russell, will be responsible for the team’s bowling. With Cummins out of the way, Anukul Roy can now be given a chance in his place. This season he has taken 1 wicket in 2 matches.

  1. I do believe all the ideas you’ve presented on your post.
    They are very convincing and can definitely work.
    Nonetheless, the posts are too quick for novices. May you
    please extend them a little from next time? Thanks for the post.

  2. “Moonlighting” is not an old concept forr Indian corporates and but lack of
    awareness aamongst stakehokders can build unforeseen circumstances.
