Even though Mandeep Singh failed with the bat against Punjab Kings, the team management of Kolkata Knight Riders stuck by him and gave him another chance against Royal Challengers Bangalore. But the batter failed to score again, and in-form bowler David Willey got him out in the fourth over of the game.
Sunil Gavaskar, who was part of the commentary team, was very upset with Mandeep’s play and criticized the 31-year-old very harshly. Even though he has always found a team in the IPL, the former captain of India said that he hasn’t done much to earn his spot. Notably, the cricket player from Punjab also set a bad record in the tournament. He now has the record for shooting the most ducks (15) in the competition’s history.
Gavaskar said on air, “He always finds a franchise, but he hasn’t done much.”
At Eden Gardens, KKR beats RCB by a large margin.
Even though Rahmanullah Gurbaz played great cricket at the top of the order, KKR’s batting was in bad shape after they lost five of their top six batters in the first 12 overs. Still, Shardul Thakur and Rinku Singh put together a very important partnership that helped them get out of a tough spot and put them in charge of the game after the first 20 overs.
Thakur caused a lot of trouble by scoring 68 runs in 29 balls. His innings completely changed the way the game was played. Rinku Singh also made an important contribution with 46 runs off of 33 balls. Thanks to their fiery innings, KKR scored 204 runs at Eden Gardens.
With the ball, the spin trio of Sunil Narine, Varun Chakravarthy, and debutant Suyash Sharma completely destroyed RCB’s batting unit, and KKR won the game by 81 runs. Narine made an important breakthrough when he got rid of Virat Kohli, who was in good form. Later, the spin wizard also sent Shahbaz Ahmed back to the pavilion. On the other hand, Chakravarthy took four wickets in the game, while Suyash took three.
