Kolkata Knight Riders 204 for 7 (Thakur 68, Gurbaz 57, Willey 2-16) beat Royal Challengers Bangalore 123 (du Plessis 23, Varun 4-15, Suyash 3-30) by 81 run


Kolkata Knight Riders' comeback to Eden Gardens appeared to be a daunting start to their IPL journey, as they reached eleven and a half overs, indicating a tough road ahead.

Despite losing the initial game, their score stood at 89 for 5 after Andre Russell was dismissed for a golden duck. 


Shardul Thakur narrowly avoided becoming Karn Sharma's hat-trick prey but went on to orchestrate one of the most astonishing turnarounds in IPL history. 


Thakur's exceptional 68-run knock off 29 balls helped KKR reach 204, the highest total for a team with less than 100 and five wickets down in IPL.


Faf du Plessis and Virat Kohli got off to a strong start for Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL, but Sunil Narine and Varun Chakravarthy's mystery spinners quickly brought them back to reality.
