Notable performances in the first half of the tournament

Kolkata Knight Riders have had some great moments on the field this IPL season. Two of them certainly include Nitish Rana's opening act of 80 off 56 balls against Sunrisers Hyderabad and Andre Russell's 5-15 against Mumbai Indians. Rana’s knock led KKR to a winning start. However, Dre Russ’ fifer ended in a losing cause against Mumbai.
