Shreyas Iyer has won the toss, and Kolkata Knight Riders are bowling first against Delhi Capitals in IPL 2022.

Kolkata Knight Riders failed to put up a big total against Royal Challengers Bangalore in their second match of IPL 2022. However, they fought hard, with bowlers striking at the right intervals.

The Shreyas-led team was in the hunt till the death overs before Dinesh Karthik’s brilliance took the game away from the two-time champions.

Former Aussie spinner and one of the best of his time, Brad Hogg, was impressed with Iyer’s captaincy.

Defending 128 runs, Shreyas rotated his bowlers to perfection and kept the rivals under pressure despite a below-par score.

RCB won the game by 3 wickets with just 4 balls remaining. Hogg took to social media to laud the KKR skipper.

“Shreyas Iyer’s captaincy was exceptional last night. Low score to defend; he rotated his bowlers perfectly. Tactically he was exceptional. Unlucky not to get the win in the end,” he wrote.

Wanindu Hasaranga was declared the Player of the Match for taking 4 wickets from his quota of four overs.
