KKR’s Excellence in Bowling:

After creating a storm, while batting, they continued their excellence in the bowling. The bowlers created magic and dominated the opponent batters. Vaibhav Arora started the magic. He ended up taking 3 wickets in 27 runs with an economy rate of 6.75.  

Varun Chakravarty was another stunner. He took 3 wickets in 33 runs with an economy rate of 8.25. Mitchell Starc finally got the desired success.
