Lynn: That was my role and I'm comfortable with my role. One good innings doesn't make a summer. Hopefully I keep it going. If I can continue this momentum, I'd be very pleased. Yes I think so (whether he likes opening), with the ball coming on. I'm happy just to rotate the strike to Gauti when the spinners are on. Really nice wicket. All the grounds now are producing good flat wickets for the batters.
With records tumbling, we had to get plenty of stats. Here are a few..
- This partnership is now KKR's record first wicket partnership ever - surpassing the 121 between Uthappa & Gambhir v RR in 2014.
- Lynn records the 2nd joint fastest individual fifty for KKR. Yusuf has a 15-ball fifty against SRH while Russell scored a 19-ball fifty versus KXIP.
- KKR now hold 4th fastest team hundred in the history of IPL.
- That is KKR's first ever 10-wicket win in the IPL. It is the highest total chased down without losing a wicket in all T20s.
- First win for KKR against GL. It is the third time these two teams have met.
