Harry Brook finally proved his worth in the IPL after shining in various leagues around the world as well as in international cricket as he smashed an unbeaten 100 off 55 balls, propelling the Sunrisers to a massive 228/4.
KKR, in reply, lost wickets upfront and though skipper Nitish Rana and middle-order talisman Rinku Singh fought back admirably in the middle overs and managed to take the game deep, the 229-run target proved too high a mountain for the home team in the end.
