KKR outplayed PBKS by 6 wickets on Friday. Follow IPL 2022 highlights of KKR vs PBKS.

Kolkata Knight Riders convincingly defeated Punjab Kings by six wickets at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai on Friday. In the first innings, Umesh Yadav's 4/23 - his best figures in IPL - helped KKR bundle out for PBKS for 137. In the chase of the paltry total, KKR were going good until Rahul Chahar struck twice in one over and brought PBKS back in the game. The happiness for the Mayank Agarwal-led side couldn't last long as Andre Russell's 70 not out off 31 balls, laced with 8 sixes and 2 fours, made mockery of PBKS' total and KKR won the game with 33 balls to spare.

    Umesh Yadav Named Player Of The Match

    “I need to work hard. Getting older and when you know you play just one format, I look to bowl as much as possible … Whatever is happening now, has been because of what I have practiced with my coaches,” said Umesh.

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 11:09 PM

    I Know What I Can Do - Andre Russell

    “Feeling awesome, this is the reason why we play the game. In that position, I know what I can do. I backed my ability and that's what I did tonight. I am happy to bring the team over the line. I am happy to do whatever the team requires,” said Russell after the game.

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 10:43 PM

    KKR Win

    Back-to-back SIXES from Andre Russell and KKR have won the game by 6 wickets quite easily. This man is a monster. He has hit 8 SIXES and 2 FOURS today. This was looking like a tight chase midway, but he just tore everything apart as if it is a daily affair for him. Indeed, it is! 

    KKR 141/4 (14.3)

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 10:37 PM

    Another BIG Over

    Another costly over from PBKS. Arshdeep Singh leaked 14 runs.

    KKR 128/4 (14)

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 10:31 PM

    Rahul Chahar Returns 2/13

    Impressive bowling from Rahul Chahar but he lacked support from other bowlers. He took the wickets of Shreyas Iyer and Nitish Rana in one over but PBKS failed to keep the noose tightened. 

    KKR 114/4 (13)

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 10:27 PM

    30 Runs Off The Over

    Absolute carnage from Andre Russell. His innings has changed the game on its head. He first hit Odean Smith for one FOUR and three SIXES before Sam Billings too hit him for SIX on the last ball. 30 runs came off the over and there is nothing left in this game for PBKS. Just formalities remain.

    KKR 109/4 (12)   

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 10:16 PM

    Big Over

    17 runs came off the 10th over bowled by Harpreet Brar. Andre Russell hit him for two sixes in the over.

    KKR 73/4 (10)

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 10:09 PM

    Tight Bowling

    Just 5 runs have come off in the last two overs. Punjab Kings are back in the game. KKR still need 88 off 62 balls. And the way the pitch is playing, it won't be a cakewalk for them, unless dew makes things easy.

    KKR 56/4 (9)

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 10:01 PM


    This is exceptional from Rahul Chahar. He bowls a double wicket maiden. Nitish Rana is his latest victim. The ball had minimum turn in it and Rana was caught plumb in front of the stumps.

    KKR 51/4 (7)

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 9:57 PM


    Rahul Chahar has trapped Shreyas Iyer. The KKR captain went for a big shot, a shot that wasn't needed at this point in the game.

    KKR 51/3 (6.4) 

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 9:55 PM

    50 Up For KKR

    Another good over for KKR. 9 runs came off it as Kagiso Rabada failed to hit his mark. He had conceded a boundary off the very first ball and failed to impress.

    KKR 51/2 (6)

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 9:51 PM

    9 Runs Came Off The Over

    Despite a wicket coming in it, the last over bowled by Odean Smith leaked 9 runs. PBKS need to bowl tight overs, if they wish to stand a chance with a paltry total on the board. 

    KKR 42/2 (5)

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 9:48 PM


    Venkatesh Iyer departs on 3 runs off 7 balls. Harpreet Brar took a good catch to end Venkatesh's short stint at the crease today.

    KKR 38/2 (4.3)

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 9:45 PM

    Iyer Unbeaten On 16 Off 7

    A FOUR from Shreyas Iyer on the fifth ball of the over bowled by Kagiso Rabada. 8 runs came off it.

    KKR 33/1 (4)

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 9:42 PM

    Back-to-back FOURS

    Good batting from Shreyas Iyer. He first hit Arshdeep Singh for a FOUR with the help of a drive. He knew the bowler would pull his length back so he was waiting on the back foot and then smashed the short ball on the off side for another FOUR.

    KKR 25/1 (3)  

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 9:36 PM


    Ajinkya Rahane departs on 12. Kagiso Rabada gets his man. It was bowled outside off and Rahane edged it to short third man fielder Odean Smith, who took a really good low catch.

    KKR 14/1 (2)

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 9:31 PM

    8 Runs Came Off It

    Two boundaries came in the first over, Ajinkya Rahane hit both of them. It's a good start for KKR.

    Kagiso Rabada will bowl from the other end. 

    KKR 8/0 (1)


  • 01 Apr 2022 / 9:27 PM

    Second Innings Starts

    Ajinkya Rahane will face the first ball of KKR's innings. Venkatesh Iyer is at the other end. Arshdeep Singh will bowl the first over. Get, set, go!

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 9:24 PM

    Innings Break

    Punjab Kings started their innings with an atacking mindset but their mistake in understanding the behaviour of the pitch took a toll on them. One after another, they kept losing wickets at regular intervals and such was the consequence that the side even failed to bat for 20 overs. They would have been limited to a lower score, had there not been Kagiso Rabada's 25 towards the end. Umesh Yadav was the wrecker-in-chief with 4/23, which also happens to be his best IPL figures. Meanwhile, Tim Southee returned 2/36.

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 9:14 PM

    Run-out! PBKS All Out On 137

    Lack of communication in running and Arshdeep Singh's innings ends and so does PBKS'.

    PBKS 137 (18.2)

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 9:14 PM


    Kagiso Rabada has been dismissed by Andre Russell.

    PBKS 137/9 (18.1)

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 9:14 PM

    BIG Over

    It's a costly over from Shivam Mavi. 17 runs came off it.

    PBKS 137/8 (18)

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 9:00 PM

    4, 4, 6 - Kagiso Rabada On Fire

    It's not Kagiso Rabada the bowler, it's Kagiso Rabada the batsman who is hogging the limelight at the Wankhede Stadium. Hit back-to-back FOURS to Tim Southee before tonking him for SIX on third ball of the over.

    2 more runs came off the over.

    PBKS 120/8 (17)


  • 01 Apr 2022 / 8:54 PM

    Umesh Returns 4/23

    Terrific bowling from Umesh Yadav as he carried his red-hot form in this game as well. He finished his quota of 4 overs with figures of 4/23. His last over was a double-wicket maiden.

    He had earlier returned figures of 2/20 vs CSK and 2/16 vs RCB.

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 8:50 PM

    Another Wicket

    Rahul Chahar is out on zero runs. That's the 4th wicket for Umesh Yadav tonight. It was a short ball on good height and Rahul Chahar just edged it to get out. 

    PBKS 102/7 (14.3)

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 8:48 PM


    Harpreet Brar is gone.

    PBKS 102/7 (14.2)

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 8:48 PM

    Narine Returns 1/23

    Another good spell from Sunil Narine. He ends his quota of 4 overs with figures of 1/23. 

    Have a look at his bowling performance this season in IPL - 1/12 vs RCB, 0/15 vs CSK, 1/23 vs PBKS.

    PBKS 102/6 (14)

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 8:40 PM

    Good Over

    Just 5 came off the over from Southee alongside a wicket. Too much of attacking approach sees PBKS six down with still 7 overs remaining in the game. This wicket is not a belter and has some help for bowlers as well. Were PBKS batters too late in realising this?

    PBKS 97/6 (13)

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 8:36 PM


    Sharukh Khan has been dismissed by Tim Southee on zero run. It was bowled short and Sharukh hit it high in the air before Nitish Rana at mid-wicket took a good catch.

    Odean Smith is the next batter. 

    PBKS 92/6 (12.1)

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 8:34 PM

    KKR Lose Review

    11.5 - Harpreet Brar got hit on the pad but theball was going down the leg side. Shreyas Iyer decided to take a review after umpire Anil Chaudhary gave it not out. Eventually, KKR lose a review.

    11.6 - SIX to finish the over. 

    PBKS 92/5 (12)  

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 8:25 PM

    Wicket Again

    9.3 - Raj Bawa has been cleaned up by Sunil Narine. The Indian youngster had hit a beautiful cover drive on the previous ball, but Narine is just too good for such boys.

    PBKS 85/5 (10)

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 8:22 PM


    The masterplan works for Shreyas Iyer. He brought Umesh Yadav at the right time and the pacer has now dismissed Liam Livingstone. Pressure was at its peak, given boundaries were not coming easily since the wicket of Dhawan and Livinstone perishes in the process of accelrating the innings.

    PBKS 78/4 (9)  

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 8:14 PM

    Another Good Over

    Sunil Narine gives away just 5 runs in his first over of the game. U-19 star Raj Bawa has scored just 3 off 8 balls and that might push Liam Livingstone to go big from the other end. Thanks to Rajapaksha's quick cameo, PBKS' run rate is still good despite only 8 runs coming in the last two overs.

    Umesh Yadav returns into the attack.

    PBKS 70/3 (8)

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 8:10 PM

    3 Runs From 7th Over

    That's a very good over from Varun Chakaravarthy. Just 3 runs came off it. KKR badly needed that after so much of fireworks form PBKS batters.  

    PBKS 65/3 (7)

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 8:06 PM

    Action-packed First Powerplay

    A total of 62 runs came in the first powerplay but PBKS also lost three important wickets in it. Both the openers - Dhawan and Mayank - and number 3 batsman Rajapaksa are back into the dressing room. KKR have a good chance to slow the pace of PBKS' innings here.

    PBKS 62/3 (6)

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 8:04 PM


    Shikhar Dhawan is gone, edges the ball to wicketkeeper Sam Billings. Tim Southee gets the wicket.

    PBKS 62/3 (5.5)

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 7:59 PM

    50 Up For PBKS

    4.4 - Shikhar Dhawan gets a single on the ball of Varun Chakravarthy and Punjab have 50 runs on the board now.

    A total of 8 runs came off the over.

    PBKS 51/2 (5)

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 7:55 PM

    22 Off The Over

    It was a costly over from Mavi but KKR would be happy that the dangerous-looking Rajapaksa is back to the hut.

    PBKS 43/2 (4)

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 7:53 PM


    Here is the revenge for Mavi. He eventually traps Bhanuka Rajapaksa. The Sri Lankan batter scored 31 off just 9 balls. Think he has done his job!

    It was bowled outside off, got good bounce from the surface and Rajapaksa hit it in the air to be caught out by mid-off fielder Tim Southee.

    PBKS 43/2 (3.5)

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 7:51 PM

    Another SIX

    Rajapaksa you beauty. Please don't do this to the young Indian bowler. It was a slower ball from Mavi and Rajapaksa hit it for SIX soooo easily. He is a step ahead of Mavi in this battle.

    PBKS 43/1 (3.4)

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 7:50 PM

    4, 6, 4 - Absolute Carnage

    Bhanuka Rajapaksa is wreaking havoc here at Wankhede Stadium. Unfortunately, Shivam Mavi, who got an entry into playing XI at the cost of Sheldon Jackson, is his latest victim.

    PBKS 37/1 (3.3)

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 7:45 PM

    1 4 1 6 1 1 - Runs For PBKS

    Good over from PBKS’ point of view as they managed to get 14 runs from the over. What would double their joy is the fact that it came off Umesh Yadav’s bowling.

    PBKS 21/1 (3)

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 7:40 PM

    FOUR From Rajapaksa

    Tim Southee bowled it outside off and Bhanuka Rajapaksa ended the over with a beautiful inside out shot for a FOUR. PBKS need many more today as they will be bowling second under dew.  

    PBKS 7/1 (2)

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 7:35 PM


    Mayank Agarwal is gone. That's really bad batting from the PBKS skipper. You need to respect a bowler who is in sublime form. Umesh kept it tight in the over and an impatient Mayank stepped onto the stumps' line to smack him on the leg side but missed the ball completely to get out LBW.

    PBKS 2/1 (1)

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 7:30 PM

    It's Game Time

    Mayank Agarwal and Shikhar Dhawan are at the middle. Umesh Yadav, who is in sensational form this season, has the new ball in hand. Mayank faces him. Here we go!

    0.1 - An outswinger and Mayank misses to connect his bat on the ball. A dot delivery.

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 7:28 PM

    Team Changes

    While Kagiso Rabada replaces Sandeep Sharma in PBKS squad, Shivam Mavi replaces Sheldon Jackson in KKR's playing XI.

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 7:13 PM

    Playing XIs

    Punjab Kings: Mayank Agarwal (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Liam Livingstone, Bhanuka Rajapaksa (w), Shahrukh Khan, Odean Smith, Raj Bawa, Arshdeep Singh, Harpreet Brar, Kagiso Rabada, Rahul Chahar

    Kolkata Knight Riders: Ajinkya Rahane, Venkatesh Iyer, Nitish Rana, Shreyas Iyer (c), Sam Billings (w), Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Tim Southee, Umesh Yadav, Shivam Mavi, Varun Chakaravarthy

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 7:02 PM


    Shreyas Iyer wins the toss and Kolkata Knight Riders will bowl first against Mayank Agarwal's Punjab Kings.

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 6:42 PM

    KKR Sweat On Russell

    Andre Russell and fitness issues go hand in hand. The burly West Indian hitter hurt his shoulder in KKR's last match against RCB and could miss out tonight. In that case, IPL fans will miss out on the mouth-watering clash between Russell and Punjab's new Caribbean sensation, Odean Smith.

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 6:26 PM

    Rabada Available

    Kagiso Rabada, Punjab Kings' big signing in IPL 2022, is available to play after serving quarantine. The ex-Delhi Capitals speedster is not playing the Test series at home against South Africa. Money talks in IPL!

  • 01 Apr 2022 / 6:01 PM

    What's A Par score?

    Teams are chasing down 200-plus scores to win in IPL 2022. PBKS did it against PCB and on Thursday, Lucknow Super Giants did it against Chennai Super Kings. Teams defending scores are facing problems with a wet ball due to due.
