KKR have to suffer their second defeat at home this season. Most of their problems came while batting. A total of 155 was at best useful if their bowling attack performed at or above expectation. But they lost Nathan Coulter-Nile to a blow to the head.
Then they ran into Rahul Tripathi who mauled 78 of his 93 in boundaries. What a knock for a man playing his first season of IPL. It was more than enough to gun down a target of 156. It should be more than enough to get him the Man of the Match award.
