Match 14, Eden Gardens, Kolkata 15 April, 2018

Toss won by Sunrisers Hyderabad (decided to bowl)

Kolkata Knight Riders beat Sunrisers Hyderabad by 17 runs

Man of the Match: Robin Uthappa



SRH end on 155/6 and lose by 17 runs. That was a clinical effort from Kolkata Knight Riders as they romp home on Bengali New Year. That makes it 5/5 for KKR against SRH at the Eden Gardens.


BACK TO BACK boundaries. Bipul top-edges a boundary off Boult and then hits that straight into the long-on boundary. Every run counts as it will help the run-rate later in the tournament. SRH's score reads 151/6


SRH's score reads 143/6 going into the last over of the innings. 30 required from the last six balls of the innings. Bipul and Ojha at the crease.


MAXIMUM! Bipul goes for a big one now off Woakes. That lands in the long-off stands. Good effort here, but too late in the day surely. SRH's score reads 138/6


Great over here from Boult as he picks a wicket and gives away just 3 runs. SRH now need 41 runs from 2 overs to win this one with Bipul and Ojha at the crease. The score reads 132/6


WICKET! Boult picks a wicket. Cutting is gone. Tries to hit that out of the ground, but fails to clear Grandhomme at long-off. Boult celebrates as KKR tighten their grip on the game. SRH's score reads 129/6 with Cutting gone for 15


13 runs from the 17th over as SRH now need 44 runs off 18 balls with 5 wickets in the bag. The required rate is 14.66 as SRH's score reads 129/5


MAXIMUM! In the slot and Cutting goes up and over. That was a straight hit and Woakes bowled that in the wrong area in the death. That flies into the dressing room behind the sightscreen. SRH's score reads 128/5


FOR THE RECORD: Last time Naman Ojha scored 20 plus runs in IPL was 11 innings before, which was against KKR (37 runs) in IPL 2016. 


Tough road ahead for SRH as they need 57 from the last 4 overs. SRH's score reads 116/5 after 16 overs with Ojha and Cutting at the crease


WICKET! This is a big one as Yuvi walks back to the dugout. Woakes digs it in again and Yuvi looks to pull that one, but mishits. The ball goes high, but not long enough and substitute Rishi Dhawan picks a very good catch at long-on. Yuvi goes for 26 as SRH's score reads 112/5


Cutting joins the party as Woakes drops that short and Cutting jumps into that one to send it to the mid-wicket fence. That was a smart shot as SRH's score reads 110/4


MAXIMUM! Yuvi waits on the backfoot and punches Woakes over the top into the cover stands. That was a beautiful shot there. SRH's score moves to 105/4


Just 3 singles off Narine's over and a wicket with that. SRH's score reads 98/4 after 14 overs. Need 75 runs from 36 balls at 12.50 runs per over. Yuvi still at the crease with Cutting


WICKET! Narine sends back an over-enthusiastic Deepak Hooda. Jumped down the track even before the ball left Narine's hand. Missed the line completely and Uthappa does the rest as he removes the bails in a jiffy. Hooda goes for 13 as SRH's score reads 96/4 in the 14th over.


Brilliant shot from Hooda here. He just waits on the backfoot and places that past backward point and into the boundary rope. Third-man cannot stop that one. SRH's score reads 95/3 after 13 overs. 15 came off that one.


A boundary to follow the huge six. That was a flick off the hips and went racing into the boundary ropes. One bounce and out of the ground. SRH's score reads 90/3


Yuvi welcomes Umesh with a maximum. That was a stylish shot straight back over the bowler's head. That was as straight as the arrow. SRH's score moves to 86/3


That was an expensive over by Kuldeep's standard as he gives away 10 to finish with figures of 1/23 off his four. SRH's score reads 80/3 after 12 overs


MAXIMUM! Deepak Hooda sends Kuldeep out of the ground. That was a brilliant hit as Hooda went clean. Need some runs here Hyderabad if they want to stay in the game. SRH's score reads 76/3


Yuvraj finishes the over in style. Woakes looks to bounce Yuvi and he was waiting for the short ball here and sent it into the mid-wicket boundary. One bounce and into the ropes. SRH's score reads 70/3


WICKET! Woakes gets his revenge as Henriques hits that back to Woakes. That was a change of pace and Henriques failed to adjust and hit that straight to Woakes who took a smart catch in his follow through. SRH's score reads 65/3


A boundary for SRH. Woakes introduced into the attack and Henriques goes up and over the slip cordon. Very good execution as SRH needed that boundary. SRH's score reads 65/2


10 overs gone with SRH's score on 59/2. SRH need 114 runs off the last 10 overs. That means a required run-rate of 11.40. Henriques and Yuvraj in the middle for Hyderabad.


WICKET! Kuldeep had been troubling Warner in the air and finally gets his man. Warner looks to hit that over the top and Woakes takes that easily at long-off. Warner goes for 26 as SRH's score reads 59/2


Henriques starts off after the strategic break with a boundary. That was a wrong'un and Henriques was waiting for that one deep in the crease and cut that to the point boundary. SRH's score reads 58/1


Just 5 runs off the 9th over as Narine bowls a good over. SRH's score reads 53/1 after 9 overs. SRH need to start attacking a bit as the required rate is on the rise. It has gone up to 10.90.


Brilliant over there from Kuldeep, giving away just 1 run off the 8th over of the innings. SRH's score reads 48/1 with Warner batting on 23 and Henriques still to open his account.


MISSED! Warner goes down the track to try and hit Kuldeep. Misses that, but Uthappa fails to collect that one and Warner gets a life on 22. SRH's score reads 47/1. This could be costly.


FOR THE RECORD: SRH have lost just 2 wickets in the powerplay in 4 matches, the least by any team in this IPL.
