First, KKR scored 204 runs in the allotted 20 overs, then Bengaluru collapsed for 123 runs. This sealed the biggest defeat of the season. In the Kolkata team, opener Rahmanullah Gurbaz (57 off 44 balls, 6 fours, 3 sixes) and Shardul Thakur (68 runs off 29 balls, 9 fours, 3 sixes) excelled with half-centuries. But in this same match, KKR batsman Deep Singh sealed a worst record. Mandeep Singh, who came in one down, was clean bowled on the first ball of David Willey’s bowling. Thus, the young player has written the worst record in his name as the most number of duckouts in the IPL tournament. Mandeep has been ducked 15 times in IPL so far. In this sequence, he also broke the worst record of Rohit Sharma and Dinesh Karthik. Rohit Sharma has been ducked 14 times in 223 matches in IPL history. At the same time, Dinesh Karthik went 14 times without a run in 209 matches. And Mandeep Singh was ducked 15 times in just 97 innings. Thus breaking the worst record of Rohit Sharma and Dinesh Karthik.
In this regard, it is noteworthy that there are only 8 Indian players in the top-10 list. Star players like Piyush Chawla, Harbhajan Singh, Parthiv Patel, Ajinkya Rahane, Ambati Rayudu, Dinesh Karthik are in this list. Kolkata won this match by 81 runs and got their first win of the season. Kolkata’s spinners showed the dots for the Bengaluru team, which came into the ring with a target of 205 runs. Varun Chakraborty (15/4), Suyash Sharma (30/3) and Sunil Narine (16/2) did not manage the Bengaluru batsmen at the crease. Virat Kohli (21), Duplessis (23), David Willey (20) and Bracewell (19) scored double figures only. All the other batsmen were limited to single digits. At one stage RCB lost 9 wickets for 96 runs. But with David Willey and Akash Deep adding 27 runs to the last wicket, they finally achieved a respectable score of 123 runs.
Two in Two by David Willey!
