Let’s take a look at the TKR vs GAW highlights to understand what happened.
TKR vs GAW First Innings
The Knight Riders never got underway since they lost Tion Webster on the first ball and Nicholas Pooran shortly after. Munro and Seifert carried the innings rather effectively, but they failed to capitalize once they were in position. Russell put in yet another subpar performance, while Narine and Pollard got several maximums.
Both Romario Shepherd and Tabraiz Shamsi bowled superbly. Romario gave the innings a strong start by taking two wickets during the powerplay. The South African spin pair then ensured that no runs were lost in the middle overs. Shamsi then bowled two overs in the death overs, picking up crucial wickets.
TKR vs GAW Second Innings
Guyana Amazon Warriors did very bad with their batting despite performing well in their first innings with the ball. The players were just getting out and no one was able to stand on the pitch to score high.
The bowlers have done the job for Knight Riders, but the Warriors squandered away their victory. After the Warriors get off to a fast start, Russell, Akeal, and Narine are all-stars as they limit them to 124.
GAW’s total batting effort was unimpressive. The highest score was 28. Up until the 10th over, when they were playing at 81/3, they were much above the needed run rate. Following that, everyone was dismissed for 124 in the 18th over. When they only needed to score runs to win comfortably, they simply lost wickets with hasty strokes. They’ll feel really let down as this was going to be an easy win for them.
