Mayank Agarwal blamed the defeat on poor batting, said this in praise of the bowlers

Mayank said, ‘We did not bat well. Although we did give a good fight in the beginning in the bowling. Then Russell came and he took the match away from us. We started well but could not capitalize on it. It is the initial phase of the tournament so there is nothing to worry about at the moment.’

Andre Russell gave KKR victory
KKR won the toss and elected to bowl first. Batting, Punjab Kings lost the wicket of captain Mayank Agarwal (1) in the very first over. Although Bhanuka Rajapaksa (31)’s quick batting again gave good momentum to Punjab, but as soon as he was dismissed, the Punjab team lost one wicket after the other and was all out after scoring 137 runs in 18.2 overs. In response, KKR also lost 4 wickets for 51 runs in 7 overs at one time. But from here Andre Russell played a scintillating innings of 70 off 31 balls to give KKR a 6-wicket win. KKR chased down the target in the 15th over itself.
