In the first innings, too, there was a big surprise when Vijay Shankar scored a quick-fire half-century. Due to this knock, GT was able to post a total of 204. Since GT has one of the best bowling attacks, many felt that they would easily win the game. An early wicket further tilted the momentum towards them.
However, Venkatesh Iyer and Nitish Rana stitched a good partnership, which helped KKR get close to the total. But, Rashid Khan arrived and he removed some key men. Later, in the final over, KKR needed 29 runs and Yash Dayal was the bowler. Many believed that the game was over. Rinku Singh had other ideas, though. He hit five sixes to close the game for his team. Yash Dayal bowled a few full tosses, which further helped Rinku’s case. It was a stunning game because no one had predicted this finish. This win will give KKR massive confidence ahead of the next games.

Barring two games before this encounter, IPL 2023 had been all about one-sided encounters. The tournament and the fans needed a close game and it came about on Sunday at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Not many expected KKR to win the game with 29 runs needed in the last over. However, Rinku Singh made it possible in what will go down as one of the best innings in IPL history. Here is how Twitter reacted to it:
This is the victory of a lifetime!
