Despite Virat Kohli’s 83, Kolkata Overcomes Bengaluru, Halting Their IPL 2024 Home Winning Run


Despite Virat Kohli’s impressive 83-run performance, Kolkata emerged victorious by seven wickets in the IPL 2024 match against Bengaluru at M.Chinnaswamy Stadium on Friday, thanks to the outstanding batting skills of Sunil Narine and Venkatesh Iyer.

Kolkata achieved a resounding victory in Bengaluru, making them the first team playing away from home to win a match in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024.

Phil Salt and Sunil Narine provided Kolkata with a strong start by adding 86 runs for the first wicket, while chasing a target of 183 for their second consecutive victory.

Salt and Narine also contributed to Kolkata’s achievement of scoring 85 runs without losing any wickets in the Powerplay phase, which is the second-highest score in the history of the IPL.

Mayank Dagar, a left-arm spinner, took the wicket of Narine when he had scored 47 runs, while Vijaykumar Vyshak bowled Salt for 30 runs, providing Bengaluru with some relief.

Subsequently, Venkatesh Iyer collaborated with captain Shreyas Iyer to construct a partnership of 75 runs for the third wicket.

Venkatesh Iyer achieved a 50 runs score in just 30 balls, while Shreyas Iyer contributed 39 runs to secure victory for their team and remained undefeated until the conclusion.

Bengaluru’s bowling performance was significantly substandard compared to their regular level of play.

The host team delivered a significant number of poorly executed balls, resulting in advantageous opportunities for the opposing batters.

Vijaykumar Vyshak and Mayank Dagar performed exceptionally well as bowlers, while the remaining members of the bowling unit were heavily dominated by the Kolkata bats.

Mohammed Siraj, Yash Dayal, and Alzarri Joseph all conceded more than 11 runs in a single over, resulting in the home team’s inability to protect their score.

By losing this game, they also shattered the record of the home team winning all of their matches thus far in the competition.

Bengaluru will return to the planning stage and strive to adequately prepare before their upcoming match.

Kohli and Karthik propel Bengaluru to a total of 182 runs.

Virat Kohli’s undefeated innings of 83 runs propelled Bengaluru to a formidable total of 182 for six against Kolkata Knight Riders in their IPL encounter on Friday.

Kohli, who achieved a score of 83 runs from 59 balls with four boundaries and four sixes, collaborated with Cameron Green (33 runs from 21 balls) to form a significant 65-run partnership for the second wicket, guiding RCB’s innings.

Dinesh Karthik’s timely contribution of 20 runs, which included three sixes, strengthened RCB’s overall score during the final stages of the match.

Following an invitation to bat, Bengaluru experienced an early setback as their captain, Faf du Plessis, was dismissed by Harshit Rana after conceding a six.

Following du Plessis’s dismissal, Kohli and Green collaborated to maintain RCB’s progress, achieving a score of 61 for 1 during the PowerPlay.

Kohli exhibited a variety of shots, like as drives, lofts over covers, sweeps, and slog-sweeps, in order to achieve his 52nd IPL fifty. Kohli’s six off Starc, executed with a flip, was the most impressive shot of the night. It showcased his unwavering determination to come up with new techniques and overpower bowlers.

Nevertheless, Andre Russell disrupted the hopeful collaboration when Green’s endeavor to pull him resulted in the ball striking his stumps.

Glenn Maxwell, after being dismissed twice, achieved a total of 28 runs off 19 deliveries before being caught by Rinku Singh at deep point off Sunil Narine’s bowling.

This happened after a partnership of 42 runs with Kohli. Rajat Patidar, who was experiencing a lack of self-assurance after the Test series against England, was unable to have a significant effect, scoring only 3 runs off 4 balls.

Meanwhile, Kohli persisted with his aggressive performance despite the KKR bowlers effectively reducing the speed of the game with their tactic of bowling slower deliveries.
