IPL 2023: Litton Das, the KKR wicketkeeper, returns home owing to a medical problem in his family. On April 29, KKR and GT will face off at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.
Litton Das, the wicketkeeper-batsman for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). Had to return home due to a medical issue in his family, which delivered a serious setback to the team. He would probably miss the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) games for KKR. Furthermore, Das has been given a “No Objection Certificate” by the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) until May 4, which may prevent him from playing in the future.
The Bangladeshi keeper-batter, who joined the team after a few games, has only participated in KKR’s IPL match against Delhi Capitals (DC). He didn’t play well in the game, falling cheaply and capping a poor performance as a wicketkeeper by missing two key stumping opportunities, which DC took advantage of to win the game.
“He had a family medical emergency for which he had to fly back to Dhaka this morning. There is no update on his return yet,”team official said
At the IPL 2023 mini-auction, the two-time champions paid a base price of INR 50 lakh to acquire the 28-year-old. With three victories, the team led by Nitish Rana is currently ranked seventh in the IPL Points Table. To remain in the running for the playoffs, they must recover in their remaining games.

By 21 runs, Kolkata Knight Riders defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore.
After four straight losses, KKR overcame Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) by 21 runs on April 26 at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru to win their first game in the IPL 2023. Acting captain of the RCB Virat Kohli made the call to field first after winning the toss. However, the decision backfired because the RCB bowlers were unable to stop the KKR batters, allowing them to score freely.
Kolkata reached a massive total of 200 runs in 20 overs thanks to the rapid half-century by opener Jason Roy (56 off 29) and the outstanding cameo by captain Nitish Rana (48 off 21). Notably, the home team’s fielding was poor as Rana was dropped twice. The KKR bowlers put on a masterful display as they held the host team to 179/8 during RCB’s chase to secure a 21 run victory.
While the other batters failed to support him from the other end, Virat Kohli (54 off 37) led his team from the front. Only Mahipal Lomror (34 off 18) and Dinesh Karthik (22 off 18) made an unsuccessful attempt to buy time on the crease. Interesting fact: Since 2016, the Knights have not suffered a defeat at Chinnaswamy Stadium.
