Kolkata Knight Riders bowlers fought really hard to defend 128, but it was not to be

Royal Challengers Bangalore 132 for 7 (Rutherford 28, Shahbaz 27, Southee 3-20, Umesh 2-16) beat Kolkata Knight Riders 128 (Russell 25, Hasaranga 4-20, Akash 3-45, Harshal 2-11) by three wickets

Having lost their opening game of the season despite scoring 205, Royal Challengers Bangalore were in danger of losing again, this time despite bowling their opponents out for 128. But they pulled through, fighting their way past Kolkata Knight Riders’ bowlers on a quick DY Patil Stadium pitch with variable bounce, with Dinesh Karthik, held back tactically in the batting order, striking the winning blows off his old team-mate Andre Russell, who bowled the final over with a wounded right shoulder.
