<p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Match report: </strong>Winning the toss KKR opted to bat and the decision nearly backfired initially. They registered one of the lowest totals of powerplay for this season. However, Shubman Gill’s little partnerships with other batsmen and thunderous batting from Dinesh Karthik (58 off 29 balls), drove KKR to a total of 164, which is quite competent at Abu Dhabi.</p>
