IPL-2022, Match 47, RR vs KKR Highlights: Kolkata Knight Riders defeated Rajasthan Royals by 7 wickets with 5 balls to spare at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai in the 47th match of the TATA IPL 2022 season.
Rajasthan Royals scored 152/5 at the end of 20 overs on the board, Rajsthan’s skipper Sanju Samson scored a valuable half-century scoring 54 runs in 49 balls before losing his wicket to Shivam Mavi, Rajasthan did not have a good start to the game as Padikkal was sent back to the pavilion by Umesh Yadav and the orange cap holder Jos Buttler got trapped on the score of 22 to Tim Southee. Hetmyer was the only other notable scorer as he scored 27 in just 13 deliveries which lead Rajasthan to a defendable total.
While chasing, Kolkata Knight Riders tried another new opening pair of Finch and their new wicketkeeper Baba Inddrajith which failed terribly again as both batters went back to the pavilion early on. But KKR’s skipper Shreyas Iyer built a very good partnership with Nitish Rana before losing his wicket on a score of 34 to Trent Boult but then came on Rinku Singh who scored a brilliant 42 runs in just 23 balls to seal the deal for the Knights.
Rajasthan Royals: 152 for 5 in 20 overs (Sanju Samson 54; Tim Southee 2/46) lost to Kolkata Knight Riders: 158 for 3 in 19.1 overs (Nitish Rana 48 not out, Rinku Singh 42 not out; Trent Boult 1/25).
