DC vs KKR, IPL 2024 turning point: Narine, Russell launch carnage in Vizag as KKR blow away Delhi Capitals

Posted by

New Delhi: It was absolute carnage in Vizag as the Kolkata Knight Riders rode on some remarkable batting from the likes of Sunil Narine, Andre Russell and Rinku Singh to hammer the second-highest total in Indian Premier League (IPL) history and blow the Delhi Capitals (DC) away in match no. 16 of the IPL 2024. Narine, Russell and Rinku went berserk to power KKR to a jaw-dropping total of 272 runs in 20 overs, marginally missing out on breaking the record for the highest-ever IPL team total.

Narine was the destructor-in-chief with the willow for KKR as he made a mockery of the Delhi Capitals bowling attack to get his team off to a flyer. The KKR opener smashed a stunning knock of 85 runs off 35 balls, laced with seven sixes and as many fours. He was brilliantly supported by a young Angkrish Raghuvanshi, who scored a quickfire 54 off just 27 balls.

The duo added 106 runs for the second wicket to set the stage for a massive total for KKR before Russell and Rinku took their team closer to the 277-run mark. Russell smashed 41 runs off just 21 deliveries while Rinku played a sensational cameo of 8-ball 26 as the duo ensured there was no respite for the DC bowlers.

Had it not been for a toe-crushing yorker from Ishant Sharma to clean up Andre Rusell on the first ball of the 20th over of KKR’s innings, the visitors would have easily breached the 277-run mark to set a new record for the highest-ever IPL total. Opting to bat first, KKR produced an exhilarating batting display in Vizag to entertain the crowd throughout their innings before their bowlers helped them close out a comprehensive victory.
