Man Of The Match

Overall Kolkata Knight Riders Performed Great

After their Victory read what Dinesh Karthik says,

“With Russell, I think you don’t talk too much. He goes out there, and he’s happy and gives his best for the team. The ball was gripping, especially with the ball turning away from you. As much as Andre has been batting well, we need to look at our bowling better. We are planning right, but we need to execute better. The way Lynny batted was good to see.”

Let’s Talk About How Royal Challengers Bangalore Lost This Match.

RCB have won Zero matches. This was their Fifth loss in this IPL season 2019 in this match KKR VS RCB.

Virat Kohli says that,

“The last four overs, the way we bowled, we deserve to lose. If you bowl with not enough bravery in the crunch overs, then you will always struggle against power-hitters like Russell. We cracked a bit under pressure, and that’s the only story. Had we got 20-25 more, maybe it would have helped. But if you can’t defend 75 in the last four overs, then I don’t know if you can defend 100. We just didn’t have enough composure. We have a bit of a chat about what went wrong, but apart from that, there’s nothing much you can say. It’s been a disappointing season, but we have to believe we can turn things around.”

Best performer From RCB was AB de Villiers he scored 63 runs in 32 Balls.
