IPL 2022: Batting disaster, lack of discipline! The Knights lost to the RCB despite fighting

 webmultichannel:KKR: 128-10 (Russell 25, Umesh 16)

RCB: 132-6 (Rutherford 26, Shahbaz 26)

RCB won by 3 wickets

The first match was won effortlessly. KKR played in the second match of IPL (IPL 2022) season. The Knights lost by 3 wickets to Royal Challengers Bangalore at Faf du Plessis. Just as KKR's lack of discipline and awkward batting is to blame for the KKR's rate, so too the RCB's two Bengal cricketers deserve praise.

After losing the toss at the DY Patil Stadium in Mumbai, KKR had to bat first. The Knights did not have a good start. In the beginning, Bengal fast bowler Akashdeep, who played in RCB, hit the batting fort of KKR. He returned Venkatesh Iyer for just 14 runs. KKR continues to lose wickets at regular intervals after the fall of the Venkates. At one point four wickets fell for 48 runs. From there Sunil Narine and Sam Billings try to come back a bit. But their efforts did not last long. Narine returned with 12 and Billings with 14. Sheldon Jackson returned with zero runs in the first ball. Andre Russell, the only Knight batter, got a little angry that day. He made 25 runs from 16 balls. In the end, Umesh Yadav (18) and Varun Chakraborty (10) gave the Knights a respectable score. KKR's innings ended with 128 runs. The Knights were all-out for five balls in just 16 overs. Hasaranga took 4 wickets for RCB. Bengal pacer Akashdeep took 3 wickets.

In response, the RCBO went down to bat and pushed at the beginning. Captain Faf du Plessis was dismissed for 5, Anuj Rawat for 0 and Kohli for 12 in 3 overs. Umesh dismisses Faf and Anuj. Saudi out Fafke. RCB fell under great pressure. From there, Rutherford and David Wiley resisted. The pair broke up for 72 runs. At that time, it seemed that RCB would come under pressure again. But then Bengal batsman Shahbaz Ahmed turned the tide. He scored 26 runs from just 20 balls. Rutherford made 26 runs. In the end, former Knight captain Dinesh Karthik again won the match against RCB. Kohli won by 3 wickets.

In addition to the rate, the way the KKR batsmen batted irresponsibly on this day will keep the management in mind. Russell's failure and lack of discipline with the ball in mind. Russell alone has five wide and one no ball. At the same time, two Bengali cricketers Akashdeep and Shahbaz Ahmed have nailed the coffin of KKR, which will also keep the Knights in mind.
