Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Kolkata Knight Riders Kolkata Knight Riders beat Sunrisers Hyderabad by five runs in the IPL match in Hyderabad on Thursday. KKR scored 171 for nine with Rinku Singh smashing 46 off 35 balls. Sunrisers were on course for victory but ended up short with 166 for eight in 20 overs.
KKR’s form took a sharp dip after their thrilling win against Gujarat Titans on April 9, losing six matches afterward, including the reverse fixture to GT. Meanwhile, SRH also lost six matches, but they are entering this contest with a victory over the Delhi Capitals.
A loss for either team would all but end their playoff aspirations, with KKR currently sitting at eighth place in the table, followed by SRH in ninth, with only the Delhi Capitals below them.
Vaibhav Arora dismisses Marco Jansen for 1 on the first ball. A brilliant catch by wicketkeeper Gurbaz. Bhuvneshwar Kumar comes in to play. SRH need 9 runs in 6 balls.
My heartbeat was touching 200 in the last over, but I wanted them to make hit to the longer part of the ground. The ball was slipping a lot and my best bet was longer side and that was my only hope. My first over I went for 12 runs, Markram hit me for 2 fours and that’s how the game goes. Last year I was bowling around 85kmph, I was trying out many things and I realized that I needed to work on my revolutions and I did work on it.
In the middle we bowled a few loose overs and took a gamble with Shardul and Vaibhav and they managed to get both set batters and that’s how we made a comeback in this game. We had to get them out because if they bat till the end, then surely the game would have gone out of our reach. I had a doubt if I had to go with spinner/pacer and backed my spinner to do the job. I always see who is the best spinner on the game and that’s how I decide whom to back on the given day.
