KKR vs PBKS highlights : Andre Russell and Rinku Singh’s heroics help KKR beat PBKS by five wickets

Kolkata Knight Riders vs Punjab Kings IPL highlights: Skipper Nitish Rana scored a half-century, while West Indian middle-order batter Andre Russell and Rinku Singh played some fine strokes at the back end as Kolkata Knight Riders defeated Punjab Kings by five wickets in a last-ball IPL thriller. Chasing 180 for victory, KKR scored 182/5, with Russell playing a pivotal role in the game, hitting three sixes in Sam Curran’s 19th overs to bring his team closer to the target.

Rinku then scored a four off the last ball of the innings to signal KKR’s victory. Earlier, KKR spinner Varun Chakravarthy grabbed three wickets for 26 runs but Punjab Kings still managed a fighting 179/7 with skipper Shikhar Dhawan scoring a half century.

Dhawan (57 off 47 balls) was also involved in a 53-run partnership with wicketkeeper-batter Jitesh Sharma (21) and laid the foundation for later-order batters to set a competitive total.
