Kolkata Knight Riders vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Highlights And Cricket Score - 38th T20 Match - Summary

End of Over : 15.0 SRH: 161/1

So that is it from this game! Hyderabad won it quite easily and have moved onto the 5th spot. Kolkata on the other hand, go down to the 6th spot with another loss. Cricketing action does not end here though as there is one more game to be played and that is between Bangalore and Chennai in the former's den. It will start in a bit so do join us for that.

KHALEEL AHMED HAS BEEN AWARDED THE MAN OF THE MATCH! His figures of 4-0-33-3 was probably the difference.

Jonny Bairstow is now up for an interview. He starts by crediting his bowlers to keep Kolkata down to 160. Reckons the pitch got easier to bat on. Appreciates Warner for the way he bats and says that he enjoys batting with him. Mentions there has been a lot of chat about the middle order but they haven't got a lot of opportunities and hence, the criticism is unfair. Ends by saying he has enjoyed his first experience of this League and he hopes to be back.

Kolkata skipper, Dinesh Karthik, says 160 was a par score with the way the wicket played initially but they did not bowl that well. Credits the way the openers batted but they were poor in the field. States had the chance in the second over been taken, it could have been different as it would have been the big wicket of Bairstow. He admits they were outplayed in this game and have not been good with the ball and the field. Ends by saying Kuldeep needed a break as he was not performing at his best, he hopes he comes back fresh in the next game.

Earlier in the day, the Kolkata openers got them off to a flying start but wickets at regular intervals from the Hyderabad bowlers saw them being restricted to a total which did not prove to be enough.

Not a lot to write about the Kolkata bowling. They were really poor, Narine and Raj were decent but the rest were just not good. Also, maybe if they would have taken the catch in the second over, it could have been a lot closer. All-in-all it is a day they would probably want to forget.

At the end of the first innings, this seemed to be a par score but the way Warner and Bairstow batted, it seemed that Kolkata were at least 50 runs short. Yes, they were helped by the visitors' fielders but take nothing away from their innings. They were smashing the bowlers to all parts of the ground. Both got to their half tons and their 131-run stand more or less sealed the deal. The left-hander did fall but Williamson and Bairstow ensured there were no more wickets to fall.

Are we dreaming? 30 balls left and the game is done and dusted. Hyderabad's second biggest win in terms of both - wickets and balls remaining. The one-man army from the eastern state of India is going down very badly. 5th loss on the trot.

14.6 6

Piyush Chawla to Jonny Bairstow. SIX! And he does so! Another slog sweep and another biggie. Once again over the mid-wicket stand. HYDERABAD HAVE STEAMROLLED KOLKATA BY 9 WICKETS!

14.5 6

Piyush Chawla to Jonny Bairstow. SIX! 5 more needed now! That has been nailed! Once again the slog sweep is out and it is hit over the mid-wicket fence. He has one ball to finish it in this over.

14.4 4

Piyush Chawla to Jonny Bairstow. FOUR! Clever shot this! Chawla fires it fast outside off. JB goes back and then at the very end, guides it past backward point for a boundary. One more than 10 needed.

14.3 2

Piyush Chawla to Jonny Bairstow. Tossed up on off, Bairstow makes room and slaps it towards covers. The batsmen get two runs.

14.2 1

Piyush Chawla to Kane Williamson. Flighted delivery on middle, Williamson plays it off his back foot towards mid on for a run.

14.1 0

Piyush Chawla to Kane Williamson. Tossed up on middle and leg, Kane flicks it to the leg side.

End of Over : 14 4 Runs SRH: 142/1
13.6 1

Sunil Narine to Kane Williamson. Floated delivery on off, Williamson opens the face of the bat and guides it towards third man for a run.

13.3 0

Sunil Narine to Kane Williamson. Floated delivery on middle, Williamson flicks it to mid-wicket.

13.2 0

Sunil Narine to Kane Williamson. Tossed up on leg, Williamson looks to flick but misses it and gets hit on the pads. Narine appeals for lbw but the umpire shakes his head. Probably it is going down leg.

13.1 1

Sunil Narine to Jonny Bairstow. Flighted delivery on middle, Bairstow flicks it towards mid-wicket for a single.

Summary

Sunrisers Hyderabad would look to heap more misery on Kolkata Knight Riders and continue their winning momentum when the two sides clash swords in an Indian Premier League return leg fixture here on Sunday. Sunrisers broke Chennai Super Kings' winning streak, and secured a vital victory after three losses on the trot, with a six-wicket win at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium earlier in the week.

The likes of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Khaleel Ahmed bowled in good areas to keep the run flow in check while Rashid Khan scalped two wickets conceding just 17 runs.With the bat, it was Jonny Bairstow and David Warner show once again as the pair guided the team to a facile victory by sharing a 66-run stand for the first wicket.

Placed fifth, a rung below KKR, in the points table, Sunrisers will take on an opponent low of confidence after a string of four losses in a row. KKR, who lost to Royal Challengers Bangalore by 10 runs on Friday night, have looked out of sorts in their recent meetings at home with their middle order not showing up and the over reliance on Andre Russell now becoming a cause of worry. Chasing a stiff 214 for victory, Andre Russell smashed a typical 25-ball 65 with Nitish Rana scoring an unbeaten 46-ball 85.A

But in the middle overs, after KKR had lost the first three wickets inside the powerplay, Robin Uthappa and Rana stumbled along, accumulating just 46 off 41 balls in a partnership that had Russell fuming in the dugout. Skipper Dinesh Karthik, who recently trumped Rishabh Pant to make the 15-member World Cup squad, has also been out of form. Russell, at the post match press conference, said he should bat higher up the order when KKR are in those situations, and it remains to be seen now what the think tank does against Sunrisers.

KKR's bowling, which is traditionally dependant on the spin, have also looked colourless with India star spinner Kuldeep Yadav going for 59 runs on Friday. On Sunday, it will also be Rashid against Russell as the latter hasn't had so much success against the turning ball. In their last meeting at the Eden Gardens, KKR won by six wickets with Russell smashing a 19-ball 49 chasing 182.
