Trivedi made full use of the green top at the Sawai Mansingh stadium, which allowed him to experiment.

He rounded off his spell with the wicket of Laxmi Ratan Shukla, finishing with figures of 3-23 from his four overs.

He and Kevon Cooper stifled the KKR batsmen, making scoring difficult. Kolkata were eventually bundled out for 125, chasing 145 for victory.
