Kolkata Knight Riders have managed to keep Ruturaj Gaikwad from producing a match-defining knock in the final of the IPL 2021. The right-hander has been in sublime touch as he dominated the run charts, and seeing the back of him early was KKR's top priority. Although he did curate a healthy 32, Sunil Narine had him holing out to long-off to put the brakes on the scoring rate of the three-time IPL champions. That the ever understated Narine punched the air in delight was indicative of the worth Gaikwad's wicket held.
