Andre Russell dances in front of Pat Cummins after his record IPL fifty
Pat Cummins played his first IPL 2022 game for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the ongoing season against Mumbai Indians (MI) and wowed the MI camp, the KKR camp, and everyone watching the match with his incredible 14-ball fifty with the bat.
Mumbai Indians (MI) provided a debut to their young South African star Dewald Brevis against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR).
Captain Shreyas Iyer of the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) won the toss and elected to bowl first. Suryakumar Yadav (52 in 36 balls) and Tilak Varma (38* in 27 balls), who shared 83 runs for the sixth wicket, helped MI to 161/4 in 20 overs. In the last over, Kieron Pollard blasted 22* in 5 balls with three sixes.
Venkatesh Iyer offered consistency for KKR, despite the fact that they did not get off to a good start in the chase. He stayed until the end, which aided Kolkata Knight Riders. In addition, KKR improved their dismal record against Mumbai Indians.
Andre Russel was having a good time as Kolkata Knight Riders won. They put up a fantastic performance to defeat Mumbai Indians.
