Praveen Kumar’s bowling
He was at his best against Kolkata Knight Riders and bowled an immaculate line and length. It was because of his bowling that Knight Riders didn’t had a good and explosive start. He took two wickets and conceded just 19 runs from the allotted 4 overs.
The opening partnership of 42 runs between Brendon McCullum and Dwayne Smith played a vital role in Gujarat’s triumphs. It was because of their batting that the remaining batters didn’t feel the heat.
Dinesh Karthik’s exceptional batting
He came and conquered the bowling unit of the rivals. The right hand batsman scored an impressive 51 runs off 29 balls with the help of 8 fours and 1 six.
