Kolkata Knight Riders started the season with a defeat. Kolkata, under the leadership of new captain Nitish Rana, won the toss and decided to bowl first. Looking at the pitch, it was expected that the Kolkata bowlers would be successful in giving initial shocks. But Punjab Kings managed to score 56 runs for the loss of one wicket in the powerplay. This would call the bowling a failure as the Punjab batsmen managed to post a mammoth total of 193 runs on the board. Tim Southee took two wickets but proved costly with 56 runs in 4 overs.
Apart from them, Sunil Narine, Umesh Yadav, and Varun Chakraborty were successful in taking one wicket each. Shardul Thakur failed miserably with the ball, conceding 40 runs in four overs without taking a wicket.
