There was all over RCB in the first innings as the Kolkata Knight Riders’ batters can only get 128 runs and Faf du Plessis’s side needs 129 runs to register their first win in the IPL 2022. No KKR batters could go past the 30-run mark in the first innings at Dr. DY Patil Stadium on Wednesday. Andre Russell who was playing his 400th T20I game scored the most runs for KKR.

It will be interesting to see whether Faf du Plessis’s side can get this score and win their first game.
