However, Andre Russell and Venkatesh Iyer came together and started to play well. Russell hit a six and a four off Sam Curran, which brought the required runs down to 62 from 32 balls.

They had reached 100 runs in just ten overs, but could not score many in the later overs, finishing on 191 for 5. The surface was good for batting, and it looked like a par score at that time.

In the end, the Kings team won the match by seven runs, earning two points in their season opener.
