Umesh Yadav accumulated 18 runs while Varun Chakravarthy added 10 not out.

Kolkata Knight Riders were miserable in the batting department after being asked to bat first by RCB skipper Faf du Plessis in IPL 2022. They managed just 128 and couldn’t play their quota of 20 overs.

The regular fall of wickets didn’t allow the Shreyas Iyer-led team to set the tempo. Andre Russell was the highest run-getter for his team, with 25 runs off just 18 balls.

However, their last two batters created a new IPL record despite their below-par batting display. Umesh Yadav accumulated 18 runs while Varun Chakravarthy added 10 not out.

According to famous statistician Kausthub Gudipati, this is the first time the No.10 and No.11 batters scored in double digits in an IPL innings.
