Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) defeated Chennai Super Kings (CSK) by 10 runs in IPL 2020. Led by Rahul Tripathi’s fifth IPL fifty (51-ball 81) and some tight bowling in the death overs, KKR registered their third win of the season.
When some of the biggest names in the line up failed to perform to the expectations, little known Rahul Tripathi played stellar knock for the Kolkata outfit. KKR owned by King of Bollywood Shahrukh Khan was quick to celebrate the victory by posting this message on their Official handle.
