EVENT HIGHLIGHTS

(KKR) on Monday defeated (RCB) by four wickets in the Eliminator to set up the Qualifier 2 against Delhi Capitals on October 13.

Skipper made a 33-ball 39 while his opening partner Devdutt Padikkal contributed 21 runs.

Spinner rocked the RCB batting order with a four-wicket haul while dismissed two batters.

Narine then returned to play an impact knock of 26 runs off 15 balls after Shubhman Gill (29) and Venkatesh Iyer (26) provided a good start to KKR.

Skipper (5) and (9) took the side home with two balls to spare.


Earlier. West Indies spinner showed glimpses of his vintage past with a magical four-wicket haul as (KKR) restricted (RCB) to a sub-par 138 for seven in the Eliminator, at Sharjah Cricket Ground today.

Narine (4/21) sent RCB's big guns back in the dug-out as Virat Kohli, and had no answer to his turning deliveries under pressure situation.

With Varun Chakravarthy (0/20) not conceding a single boundary and (0/24 in) also keeping the batsmen on a tight leash, the KKR's spin troika in their 12 overs gave away only 65 runs with four boundaries.

Devdutt Padikkal (21 off 18 balls) and skipper (39 off 33 balls) got off to a great start by adding 49 runs in the first five Powerplay overs after started with left-arm spin of Shakib.

The opening duo attacked an under-pressure Shivam Mavi with as many as five boundaries coming in those first few overs.

However it was (2/30), whose extra pace did Padikkal in as the left-hander, trying to cut, dragged a delivery, pitched well outside off-stump.
