KKR ‘stay alive’ on paper after 54-run win against SRH

Andre Russell’s all-round brilliance theoretically kept KKR in contention for a play-off berth as they recorded a comprehensive 54- run victory over SRH in a must-win game. It was Russell’s unbeaten 49 off 28 balls that took KKR to 177/6 after being down and out at 94/5. In reply, SRH were never in the hunt as they huffed and puffed their way to 123/8 against a collective bowling effort from Shreyas Iyer’s men with the flamboyant Jamaican finishing with best figures of 3 for 22.
