Returning to action after a one-match harm lay-off, Bhuvneshwar once again shone at the demise, claiming 3/26 as KKR's rejigged batting order appeared in an entire disarray.

Lynn was once the lone KKR crusader within the center however a sensational diving catch by way of Shakib off his personal bowling denied the Australian a half-century as the star Bangladeshi cricketer once again did his process within the center overs.

Bhuvenshwar gave the primary leap forward by way of disregarding Robin Uthappa (3) within the 3rd over after a a success use of DRS.

KKR confirmed defensive strategy early on to hold back their in-form opener Narine, a transfer that didn't assist a lot as their batting order didn't appear convincing with U-19 World Cup winner Shivam Mavi coming in at No. 7.

Bhuvneshwar's leap forward and a tidy two-run over by way of Stanlake had KKR suffering for 23/1 in 4 overs earlier than Lynn and Rana seized the momentum in two overs off Siddharth Kaul and Rashid Khan who leaked 14 and 12 overs respectively in their first overs.
