Riding on Dinesh Karthik's quickfire 58 off 29 balls and Shubman Gill's 57 off 47 balls, the team scored 164 runs in the first innings after electing to bat first.
KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal started the run chase in a commanding fashion as they notched up a 115-run partnership for the opening wicket. However, the turning point of the game was the wicket of Agarwal in the 15th over, courtesy of some consistent bowling by Prasidh Krishna all through the game.
Despite a solid foundation in the run chase, Agarwal's wicket turned the tide in favour of the Knight Riders as they strangled the opposition with some accurate bowling and tight fielding. Prasidh followed it up with crucial wickets of Prabhsimran Singh and KL Rahul in the back end of the innings to seal the match.
