IPL-2018: Rain stops play between KKR and SRH

IPL-2018: Rain stops play between KKR and SRH

Sunrisers had never won against KKR at the Eden Gardens before tonight's game, but Kane Williamson's rotation of his bowlers meant the home side was never able to get away after being asked to bat first.

Wriddhiman Saha departed after a 24-run cameo at the top, Shikhar Dhawan perished to Sunil Narine's first ball, while Pandey was trapped in front by Kuldeep Yadav before Williamson and Shakib added 59 runs for the fourth wicket. "We were waiting for this win, and especially against Mumbai Indians, it's a great comeback from the team and obviously all of wanted to win this game, so really enjoyed".

Fellow-New Zealand quick Mitchell McClenaghan was also previously drafted by Mumbai following another injury to an Australian, Jason Behrendorff.

He finally took a single off the final ball to help Delhi complete a thrilling seven-wicket win against Mumbai.

The final tally of 194 for 7 of the title-holders after such a brilliant beginning was not good enough to stop the Daredevils who rode on opener Jason Roy's unbeaten 91 off 53 balls to reach the target off the last ball and score their first win of the season.

The Mumbai Summit: The reigning champions shuffled their order with Rohit Sharma (18) demoting himself down to No.4, Suryakumar Yadav (53) joining West Indian Evin Lewis (48) at the top of the order.




Rishabh Pant scored 47 runs with his willow. Krunal Pandya was hit hard by Pant but Kieron Pollard took a beauty of a catch straight down the ground in deep.

With one run required of the last four balls off The Fizz, a victory was looking inevitable for Delhi. They brutally punished Boult as 15 runs came in his second over, with Yadav hitting two fours and Lewis striking his first six.

And as it turned out, Delhi Daredevils accelerated in the game via the middle overs - with the bat and the ball - a period which proved to be the gamechanger in the match.

Sunrisers Hyderabad's leg spinner Rashid Khan, who won the man of the match award for his splendid 1/13 bowling figures, said that they have to learn quickly from the close match against Mumbai Indians and keep doing better in the next matches. On a wicket where spinners were unlikely to get much assistance, they were overstaffed in one department and depleted in the other. "We believed that we could even after taking it to the last over", Iyer said.

"Sunrisers have some good bowlers, and on a given day you have to gauge who isn't bowling well and then go after him". Or do you make use of the start and look to play a longer innings?
