The opening woes of Kolkata Knight Riders continued as they fell to 32/2 in the powerplay after both openers were dismissed cheaply.

Kolkata Knight Riders’ lower order batting unit is led by Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, and Anukul Roy.

Umesh Yadav was outstanding with the ball, finishing with figures of 4-1-24-1. Narine and Anukul Roy were both extremely economical, allowing only 47 runs in their combined 8 overs. Tim Southee and Shivam Mavi each took three wickets but gave up runs at a higher economy rate last night.
