Their most expensive pick, Pat Cummins bowled most economically giving away just 13 runs in his three overs and also took a wicket. Spinners like Narine and Kuldeep also took wickets and gave away very few runs for the team. RR’s batsmen had no answer to the bowlers, and it was a well-deserved victory for KKR.
