Quinton de Kock ended up giving his wicket away after reaching his half-century, but his swift knock ensured Lucknow Super Giants were off to a promising start. Sunil Narine bowled it on a shorter length and around the off pole, and de Kock rocked back and tried to play the lofted back foot punch but ended up mistiming it badly as the ball just held a bit in the pitch. The miscued shot went towards the long off fence where Shivam Mavi completed a simple catch. Kolkata have the breakthrough they so desperately needed.
