Mandeep, Rinku, Russell make it count at KKR practice game
25th March 2023
Andre Russell, Mandeep Singh and Rinku Singh looked in fine touch as Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) underwent an inter-squad practice match at the Eden Gardens on Saturday.
With the squad divided into two teams, the Kolkata- based franchise made the most of the session before they begin their IPL 2023 campaign against Punjab Kings in Mohali on April 1.
Opener Venkatesh Iyer was dismissed cheaply, but Mandeep made the most of the practice game by scoring a fine half-century. Rinku, too, looked in fine touch while Russell entertained the small crowd present at the stands with some powerful hitting. Spinner Varun Chakravarty also bowled a few overs.
The Kolkata-based team began the session at the Eden with warm-ups, followed by some training drills, and concluded the day with a well played practice game.
