Jewelery Royal Also Ended With Economical Figures:

Apart from the boundaries, he kept things largely calm. Bowled a lot of points and reduced the singles. Only six singles were being managed which spoke of the Kings’ discipline as well as the openers’ inability to rotate the strike. As a result, he could only manage 35 after six overs to make up for Webster’s loss. Who took the top lead in an attempt to slog sweep the chase. St Lucia Kings continued to keep it tight as Chase conceded only 10 runs in his two overs in the powerplay. He conceded just seven runs in his next two. Jewar Royal also finished with economical figures as Knight Riders posted only 57/1 in 11 overs.

Last Over Ensured Victory For St Lucia Kings:

Munro and Kieron Pollard scored four runs each in the 15th over off Paul. Knight Riders scored 96 for 2 in the last five overs giving 62 runs.

In which the ball went towards the ropes both times. But on the ball of Sunil Narine, Cornwall completed his two fours. Isuru Udana, who had excellent figures of 5-21 against Barbados Royals in the previous game. Two consecutive sixes were hit by Fletcher while Cornwall pushed Rampaul on the track for a flat six at mid-wicket. Which helped St Lucia Kings go beyond 50.

Rampaul made a brilliant comeback for the Knight Riders by taking early wickets in the middle overs. Cornwall was deceived by Rampaul’s change in pace. While Hossin attributed to Fletcher. who was on a leading edge.

Due to which the Kings were bowled out for a total of 69 runs for 4 wickets in the 10th over. However, the wickets didn’t stop David from hitting boundaries. While Chase was attentive at the other end.

Seals Caught and Bowled David to End a 68-run Partnership of 50 Runs:

Hossin’s figures of 1-27 would have been even more economical if David had not hit a six. A punch on the back-foot hits David for a boundary off Seals.
