FOUR! Sunil Narine to Glenn Maxwell. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past deep extra cover for 4 runs. What a nail-biting finish! KKR wins the match by two runs. Maxwell fails to take his team victory tonight. KL Rahul top-scored with 74 and was well supported by his opening partner Mayank Agarwal with 56. For KKR, Prasidh Krishna picked up three wickets. Sunil Narine picked up two wickets. Excellent bowling display from KKR bowlers especially in the death overs. With this win, KKR moves to third position in the points table with eight points. Dinesh Karthik adjudged as the Man of the Match for his excellent batting performance. Join us for the next game between Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore live from Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai. Until then bye.
