However, the team had crossed the 50 mark by the end of the powerplay but Mayank, Abhishek Sharma and Rahul Tripathi had returned to the pavilion. At the same time, the bad phase of Harry Brook, who had 13 crores, continued and was dismissed for zero in the second consecutive match.

There was a partnership of 61 runs in 40 balls between the two, which took Kolkata to 90 runs in 11 overs. Rana’s wicket fell here but Andre Russell did not let the pace fall by scoring some quick runs.

After this, although no other batsman could make a big contribution, but Rinku Singh survived till the last over. He and Anukul Roy took some shots to take the team to a score of 171 for 9 in 20 overs. Apart from Yanson for Hyderabad, T Natarajan also took 2 wickets.
