IPL 2018: Kolkata Knight Riders v/s Sunrisers Hyderabad; Match Preview

IPL Diaries 2018 That’s How Sunrisers Hyderabad Celebrated Their Hat Trick Win Against the Kolkata Knight Riders

On a move with progressive wins, Sunrisers Hyderabad hinders two-time champions Kolkata Knight Riders, who might hope to bring their battle back on track at home amid an Indian Premier League T20 cricket contest here on Saturday.

"(Andre) Russell bowling some good pace and that's a very good sign for us.

This KKR side is a bit different.

KKR experimented with their batting order and swapped the positions of Sunil Narine (9) and Robin Uthappa.

It will be interesting to see Narine vs Rashid Khan in the start as one has proved himself as a lethal batsman while the other is now the number one T-20 bowler.

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

Lynn fell short of his first fifty of the season by one run with his 49 coming off 34 balls including 7 fours and one six.

The No 1 T20 worldwide bowler in the world is full of variations, which will pose a lot of questions for KKR, especially on an Eden Gardens surface that offers a lot of turn.

But SRH did well to bounce back, riding on a splendid catch by Manish Pandey. Andre Russell falling to Stanlake in the following over had KKR reduced to 96 for 5 as the game seemed to be slipping away from them.

KKR also bolstered their support staff with the inclusion of Mumbai all-rounder Abhishek Nayar who mentored skipper Dinesh Karthik in the past.

Sunil Narine needs 3 more wickets to reach the 100 IPL wickets milestone. But they were clinical on the night, hanging on to some tough chances and saving good runs in the field, which eventually helped them restrict KKR to 138 for 8 after a spell of rain interrupted proceedings, but quick resumption meant no overs were lost.

While Karthik defended an out of form Vinay, he did drop hints that he is looking at other options such as U-19 World Cup winning fast bowlers Shivam Mavi and Kamlesh Nagarkoti.
