Live Scorecard for IPL T20 KKR vs SRH

Live Scorecard for IPL T20 KKR vs SRH

(Tom) Curran bowled well considering it was his first game.

Kolkata lost Nitish Rana's wicket just after the play started- Sunil Narine was sent ahead of Dinesh Karthik to up the ante. It was hard a lot of times.

Russell ended up slicing a big heave off pacer Billy Stanlake over backward point which was pouched by Pandey.

After 10.2 overs SRH 66/3.

Sunil Narine needs 3 more wickets to reach the 100 IPL wickets milestone. The run rate should not be a problem for the Hyderabad batsmen.

Kolkata were 56 for 2 after eight overs following Rana's dismissal on 18.

Kolkata Knight Riders: After a poor final over in Chennai where the veteran failed to defend 14 runs off the final 6 deliveries, it will be interesting to see if Dinesh Karthik still persists with him or employs either of the U-19 stars - Nagarkoti or Shivam Mavi.

Kolkata: Two-time Indian Premier League (IPL) champions Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) on Saturday roped in Mumbai all-rounder Abhishek Nayar to be part of its support staff for the ongoing season. "Yes, Yusuf, Manish and Shakib played quite a few matches for KKR here". Hyderabad, who have a strong bowling pack will be aiming to restrict their opponents to a low total and then chase it down in their quest to register their first victory at the venue.

Hyderabad will be sweating while selecting the playing XI.

Sunrisers meanwhile welcomed back India pace spearhead Bhuvneshwar Kumar in place of Sandeep Sharma.

"We know that Shubman is a top-order batsman, but you have got to understand the dynamics of the game".

The fact that the Sunrisers used just five bowlers highlights the clinical nature of the bowling performance that restricted the Knight Riders to 138 for 8 in their 20 overs. With a flawless combination of Spin and Pace, both the teams will try to apply their respective strategies against each other, not allowing the hard hitters to score in the power plays.
