Rahul Tripathi and Venkatesh Year get Kolkata Knight Riders off to a flier despite the early departure of opener Shubman Gill. The left-right combo has been quick to pounce on looseners, scoring runs on both sides of the wicket with gusto. Even the introduction of spin into the attack couldn't put the kibosh on the alliance, with Fabian Allen and Ravi Bishnoi leaking a boundary each in their first over. While Iyer has rustled up a half-century, Tripathi fell for 34 with Punjab in a commanding position at 90/2.
