IPL 2023: Nitish Rana led Kolkata Knight Riders were not able to go past Punjab Kings' target of 192 runs and at last lost the match by seven runs (DLS method). KKR ended up scoring 146/7 in 16 overs before rain interupted the match and covers were called on the field. Kolkata lost wickets at regular intervals and were not able to keep wickets in hand which later became the main reason of their defeat. 

Punjab Kings while batting registered a total of 191/5 wherein Bhanuka Rajapaksa played a knock of 50 runs of just 32 balls and captain Shikhar Dhawan as well chipped in with a 40 run innings. Sam Curran and Jitesh Sharma provided the further acceleration to their innings. KKR in return lost wickets at regular intervals and were never able to get going during the run chase. The Punjab bowlers also bowled the right lengths which was also the main reason behind their success.

While the run chase was going rain interrupted the match and as Punjab Kings were seven runs ahead of the DLS total they ended up winning the match.
