Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) by four wickets to knock out the Virat Kohli-led side from the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021.

Chasing a paltry target of 139, the match went down to the wire, where the Knight Riders held their nerves and won the contest.

Shubman Gill (26), Venkatesh Iyer (26) and Sunil Narine (26) made valuable contributions to help their side book a place in Qualifier 2. Nitish Rana also chipped in with a crucial 23 off 25 balls.

Earlier, the Challengers posted 138/7 in their allotted 20 overs. Captain Virat Kohli top-scored with 39 off 33 balls, with the help of five boundaries.

Apart from Kohli, no other batter was able to stay long enough to contribute well. Opener Devdutt Padikkal was the second-highest scorer for RCB with 21 from 18 deliveries.

For the Knight Riders, Narine bowled magnificently well to restrict RCB at a below-par score. Narine picked up four wickets for 21 runs in his quota of 4 overs. The Caribbean sent back Kohli, Srikar Bharat (9), Glenn Maxwell (15), and AB de Villiers (11).
