SRH bowlers produce impressive show, restrict KKR to 138/8

IPL 2018 Indian Premier League KKR vs SRH Kolkata Knight Riders vs Sunrisers Hyderabad sports news IPL news Indian Express

With two wins from two matches, SRH leading in the points table ahead of Chennai Super Kings on net run rate.

For the hosts, opener Chris Lynn (49; 34b 7×4 1×6) was the top-scorer as skipper Dinesh Karthik laboured to a 27-ball 29 hitting two fours and a six.

KKR had reached 52-1 from the seven overs before a rain delay, during which Robin Uthappa (3) was given out caught behind to Bhuvneshwar on review, and Rana became the first man in this year's event to hit Afghanistan leg-spinner Rashid Khan for six.

Sunrisers Hyderabad captain Kane Williamson had not hesitation to ask Kolkata Knight Riders to bat first after winning the toss at the Eden Gardens on Saturday.

The inclusion if Shakib Al Hasan has added teeth to their already potent bowling lineup. But they will look to make amends to their horrific batting collapse as they lost 4 wickets for just a sole run in the space of 8 balls; and if it hadn't been for Deepak Hooda's calm, SRH would've lost a match which was theirs from the beginning.

The day began with a bit of deju vu as massive crowds of teachers inundated the capitol, lobbying for additional school funding. Bevin also dissed protesting teachers for "hangin' out, shoes off. smokin', leavin' trash around, takin' the day off".

Lynn was the lone KKR crusader in the middle but a sensational diving catch by Shakib off his own bowling denied the Australian a half-century as the star Bangladeshi cricketer once again did his job in the middle overs.

Sunil Narine was the next to depart as he was dismissed by Shakib for 9. They take on Kings XI Punjab next in Mohali on April 19, while KKR will play Delhi Daredevils at home on April 16.

Possible changes for KKR might come in terms of Vinay kumar who will be replaced by Sivam Mavi, as stated by the head bowling coach. Bhuvneshwar returned to the Sunrisers line-up in place of Sandeep Sharma, who had replaced him in the last game.

Dinesh Karthik, KKR: "It's a new game for us". With a ideal combination of Spin and Pace, both the teams will try to apply their respective strategies against each other, not allowing the hard hitters to score in the power plays.
