Not a bad day for young Nagarkoti! 2 wickets, a crisp boundary at the end and a seriously good catch. Hopefully he will continue to repay the extraordinary faith that @KKRiders have had in him

Kamlesh Nagarkoti and Shivam Mavi bowling out the batting lineup that dismantled the highest chase ever in the IPL is testament to KKR's investment and commitment to youth. Not to mention, Shubman Gill anchoring the 1st innings in routine fashion. The future is now. #RRvKKR
