The VIVO IPL 2018 has now come to an end. Overall, it was yet another run-fest for all the teams. Kolkata Knight Riders have had 6 batsmen with the aggregate total of over 300 runs or more in this IPL - most by any other teams this season. These numbers came on the back of some individual brilliance with the bat.
Here’s our pick of top 5 innings from our Knights in this IPL:
Unstoppable Narine vs RCB
Sunil Narine’s affair with RCB bowlers continued this season as well. In the opening match of both teams, Narine went on to score a quickfire 17-ball half-century.
Russell blitzkrieg vs CSK
11 sixes, just 1 four and plenty of T20 and IPL records were shattered on the floor. 88* runs off 36 balls says everything about that night our all rounder had against CSK.
Narine’s IPL best vs KXIP
We were facing a do-or-die situation and Narine delivered when it mattered the most against KXIP in Indore. His IPL best (75 runs off 36 balls) rescued KKR’s hopes of making to the playoffs.
DK's 50 vs KXIP
After a quick start by our top order batsmen, it was up to our Skipper, DK to do what he did best in the entire IPL. He scored a quick 22-ball 50 runs and stayed right till the end of our 1st innings.
Lynn 55 vs SRH
It was not a typical Chris Lynn innings (55 runs off 43 balls) against SRH in our last league match. But he managed to hold one end and took KKR closer to the total.
