Kolkata Knight Riders vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Live Cricket Score - 10th T20 Match - Summary

End of Over : 19.0 SRH: 139/5

That's all we have for today! Earlier in the day, Delhi chased down a huge total to defeat Mumbai at the Wankhede and then Hyderabad defeated Kolkata at the Eden Gardens. So, both the teams hosting the game lost today. How often do you see that? Something that will keep you thinking. On that note, we take your leave. Do join us on Sunday for another doubleheader. First game is between Bangalore and Rajasthan at 1600 IST and then later Punjab will face Chennai at 2000 IST. Until then, goodbye and cheers!

18.6 6

SIX! Yusuf Pathan, the ex-Kolkata player has silenced the Eden Gardens here. Gets a hug and a pat from Russell and the customary handshakes follow. Russell with another short one on middle, Yusuf goes for the pull but gets it off the top edge. Still good enough connection to end the game with a maximum over deep backward square leg. A 5-WICKET VICTORY FOR HYDERABAD!

18.5 1

Clips one through mid-wicket and takes a single.

18.4 1

Pathan jams out a yorker and Hooda is quick to cross for a single.

18.3 4

FOUR! Up and over Lynn at extra cover! On a length and outside off, Pathan looks to punch it on the up. Didn't time it well but has enough to clear a leaping Chris Lynn at extra cover. More importantly for his side, it then goes to the fence. Happy faces in the Hyderabad dugout.

18.2 1

Fuller outside off, driven through cover for a single.

18.1 0

Short delivery outside off, Hooda tries to pull that one but failed to connect it.

End of Over : 18 8 Runs SRH: 126/5
17.6 2

Short of a length delivery outside off, a flat-bat punch wide of long off will give Yusuf two. 13 required off 12 balls.

17.5 4

FOUR! Yusuf Pathan drills one! Releases all the pressure that was applied on the previous few balls. Mitchell goes fuller outside off, Pathan nails the drive through extra cover. Finds the gap and he doesn't even bother running.

17.5 1

Wide! Johnson pounds in a short ball on middle and leg and it sails over the head of Pathan. Called as a wide.

17.4 0

Back of a length delivery on middle and leg, clipped towards square leg where Russell dives and stops. They are not risking the single here.

17.3 0

Yusuf Pathan stays put inside the crease and defends it back down the track.

17.2 W

OUT! Straight to Russell! Kane Williamson is gone. Is there a twist in the tale now? This surely must have shaken the Hyderabad dugout. Good length delivery, at 134.1 kph, Williamson walks across and tries to clip it away. All he manages is to hand a simple catch to Russell at square leg. Kolkata hanging in there.

17.1 1

Good length delivery on middle and leg, worked through square leg for a single.

Summary

On a roll with successive wins, Sunrisers Hyderabad stand in the way of two-time champions Kolkata Knight Riders, who would be looking to bring their campaign back on track at home during an Indian Premier League T20 cricket clash. With two wins from two matches, SRH lead the table ahead of Chennai Super Kings on net run rate. The home side, on the other hand, will be smarting from a heartbreak defeat against Chennai Super Kings despite posting a 200-plus total.

 

On paper, Kane Williamson-led SRH are one of the most balanced sides, boasting an experienced batting lineup and an equally effective bowling unit, a dream combination for any captain. But the visitors did not look too convincing in a modest chase against Mumbai Indians last night before pulling off a one-wicket victory off the last ball, a first in IPL history.

 

On a day when the bowlers lived up to their reputation by restricting MI to 147-8, SRHs experienced batsmen almost threw the match away as eventually it was the last wicket pair of Deepak Hooda and No 11 Billy Stanlake who scrambled home.

 

At 56 for no loss after Powerplay, SRH were cruising home but the likes of Wriddhiman Saha, Kane Williamson, Shikhar Dhawan and Manish Pandey who form the fulcrum of their batting got out in 27 runs to make the chase look so hard.

 

Leading 8-4 on head-to-head count, KKR will fancy chances against a team who had lost by 17 runs the last time they clashed at Eden Gardens in the last edition. That batting collapse will give KKR some ray of hope as they will look to use their bowling resources well this time.

 

Having failed to defend a tall 203, courtesy some tactical blunders and R Vinay Kumars profligacy at the death, KKR would look to tighten their bowling attack and veteran pacer Mitchell Johnson is all set to return as indicated by bowling coach Heath Streak yesterday.

 

It also remains to be seen whether they run out of patience with Vinay Kumar who failed to defend 17 runs in the last over against CSK and was later trolled on social media. The Karnataka veteran seamer has been at his unimpressive best and has the worst bowling record in their lineup in two matches conceding 65 runs from 3.5 overs at an economy of 16.95. Thankfully for KKR the batting has clicked big time in Chennai where Andre Russell led the charge with an unbeaten 88 from 36 balls.

 

It will also be an emotional moment for Yusuf Pathan, Shakib Al Hasan who were part of KKRs success journey in winning two titles in 2012 and 2014 turning out from the opponents dressing room at the Eden. There’s also Manish Pandey, the former KKR number three and IPL 2014 winner, and Bengal cricketer Wriddhiman Saha turning out for SRH this time as they will look to prove their worth in Orange colours.

 

The logo of SRH is on the left side and will be close to my heart. My focus will only be on how to win matches for my side and play some ruthless cricket Pathan, who was an integral part of the Shah Rukh Khans franchise for seven years, has said summing up the mood. Shakib is also a smart pick as he along with Rashid Khan bowling in tandem will be a treat to the eyes.
