Batsmen, spinners star in big Kolkata win

Share

The Knight Riders made a number of selection changes ahead of Saturday's game with Sunrisers but nothing worked for Dinesh Karthik's side as they posted a sub par 138/8. The 61-run fifth wicket-stand off 22 balls between Rana and Russell in many ways turned the game around for the hosts. The venue of the match is at Eden Gardens, Kolkata. He was clobbered for 42 runs in his last couple of overs as KKR raced towards 200 easily.

KKR experimented last game with Robin Uthappa opening the batting instead of Narine, instead of his otherwise No.3 slot.

It's too early to write off any team's challenge, but Mumbai Indians (no wins in three) and Delhi Daredevils (one from three) are already threatening to be cut adrift at the bottom of the table.

The all-rounder inspired with both the bat and the ball as Hyderabad, despite making hard work of their chase of 139, managed to clinch it thanks to Shakib and Captain Kane Williams. On the other hand, Delhi's bowling look comparatively weaker and will look to play Amit Mishra/Jayant Yadav in place of Shahbaz Nadeem to strengthen their bowling a bit. The result meant Daredevils skipper Gautam Gambhir's return to Kolkata ended on a sour note. Gambhir, who led KKR to two IPL titles, was bought by DD in the IPL 2018 auction for Rs 2.8 crore and is also their captain. The team will also be relying heavily on its spin ace Sunil Narine to keep a check on Daredevils' batsmen. He hit two fours in the air to the midwicket region off Chris Morris in the 14th over, but was caught in the same region while attempting his third similar shot. Rishabh Pant and Glenn Maxwell added 52 for the fourth wicket. They have won one match and lost two matches in this season.

STAT ATTACK: This is Gambhir's 50th match at the Eden. Asked to open, Uthappa looked clueless particularly against Bhuvneshwar Kumar and it remains to be seen whether he would open again with DD boasting pace duo of Trent Boult and Shami up front.
