The KKR-LSG game at Eden Gardens was a critical game for both sides and a crucial one in terms of finalising the teams for the playoffs. At the end of it, LSG managed to get past KKR by just one run as Rinku Singh almost pulled off another heist for his side. 

Ravi Bishnoi was the man for LSG who stood out with his brilliant spell and got two big wickets. He gave away only 23 runs in his four overs as well and his spell turned out to be the difference between the two sides in the end.

Talking after the match, Bishnoi said that it always feels nice to win close games and it gives a big boost to the team morale. He added that they were scared when Rinku Singh was batting and felt that the game was slipping away from them.

"It always feel nice to win such a match and when we do the morale comes down, sorry...up, the morale is boosted. When Rinku was batting, we were scared to lose the match, it felt like the match was slipping away,"

Ravi Bishnoi added that they knew that if the ball starts getting stuck on the surface, the run-scoring will get tough. He stated that the focus was to bowl dot balls and take wickets by building pressure. Bishnoi also added that they wanted to finish in top 2 but if they keep playing well, they can win the trophy.

"We discussed that if the ball starts getting stuck in the surface then the run scoring will be tough. The only focus was to bowl dot balls and take wickets for the team, we had to stick to the plan throughout. We were trying to finish in the top 2, it hardly matters, reaching the playoffs was more important and if we keep fighting like this, we can surely win the trophy."

LSG have qualified for the playoffs with this win and will be playing the Eliminator on 24th of May. RCB, MI and RR are the three teams that can grab the final playoff spot going into the final day of the league stage of IPL 2023.
