Rising Pune Supergiant Vs Kolkata Knight Riders Match 30
Question in detail
Rising Pune Supergiant Vs Kolkata Knight Riders, match No. 30: Going into their 8th game, KKR seeks extension of their winning streak. A theatric win over RCB at Eden Garden got them up and about on the point table. They were once at 65 by the end of the Power play, but a dramatic collapse in the middle of the innings kept them confined to 131. More surprisingly, they wrapped the Challenges at 49 the lowest ever total in the IPL history thus seizing their 5th win of the tournament. Now Knight Riders have the prospects to top the table, provided they become the winner of RPS Vs KKR match at MCA stadium, Pune.
Narine's contribution with bat has been worth gold for the side since the time he opened KKR's innings. And half of the credit goes to the skipper Gautam Gambhir who allowed the spinner to come up and juggle his unseen batting skills. Narine's success with bat came as a tad irony to the critics who were underestimating KKR's ability to blitz without Chris Lynn in the top-order. Roobin Uthappa and Manish Pandey next to the opening pair consolidate KKR's batting. So, batting hasn't really been a disconcerting point for Knight Riders this IPL season. Also, the bowlers seem to be backing their batsmen, no matter how small defending target could be. Placed 2nd at present, KKR would be now keen to lead the point table. All that the visitors need to be atop is to become winner of winner of RPS Vs KKR match MCA stadium, Pune.
Nathan Coulter-Nile, KKR's key pacer and also the previous match-winner, has been rested for Rising Pune Supergiant Vs Kolkata Knight Riders at MCA stadium. And this could add a little worry to KKR's pace attack. However, they have the likes of Trent Boult, Shakib Al Hasan and Rovman Powell in their roster to replace in-form Nile.
Will KKR go top of the point table winning Pune clash MCA stadium?
