Every Sunrisers Hyderabad bowler took at least one wicket as they limited the struggling Kolkata Knight Riders to 171/9 in 20 overs. Nitish Rana and Rinku Singh struck 42 and 46 runs, respectively, to help KKR to a respectable total.
Earlier on Thursday, Kolkata Knight Riders skipper Rana won the toss and chose to bat first against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Jason Roy replaced David Wiese in the KKR starting eleven, while SRH brought back a healthy Kartik Tyagi.
Varun Chakravarthy will bowl the last over, with 9 runs to defend. And that’s just to get started. 8 from 5. And another single to put Samad on strike again. And he’s holed up!!!! Anukul Roy has made the catch!!! A massive wicket. 7 out of 3 presently. Markande misses the following ball, and stumping is reviewed. But he’s not in danger. 7 from 2. It’s game over with a six. The following ball is a single. 6 is now required. And then it’s all over. Kolkata win by 5 runs.
