RCB vs KKR Highlights, IPL 2023

Kolkata Knight Riders finally broke their four-match losing streak as they beat the Royal Challengers Bangalore by 21 runs away from home. Jason Roy (56) and Nitish Rana (48) with the bat and Suyash Sharma (2/30) and Varun Chakaravarthy (3/27) with the ball were the heroes for Kolkata. 

Kolkata scored exactly 200 after being asked to bat first. Faf du Plessis and Glenn Maxwell failed with the bat after a long time. And even after a fifty from Virat Kohli, there came no support as such and Bangalore could manage to get as far as 179/8. Their two-match winning streak was also broken.
