Abu Dhabi: Kolkata Knight Riders put up a disciplined effort with Pat Cummins brilliantly spearheading the assault to limit Sunrisers Hyderabad to a modest 142 for 4 of their IPL fixture right here on Saturday.
Having drawn flak for bowling brief towards Mumbai Indians, the IPL’s most-expensive abroad purchase returned tidy figures of 1/19, whereas spinner Varun Chakravarthy (1/25) outfoxed the harmful David Warner to derail SRH early on.
Manish Pandey returned to type at No. 3 with a 38-ball 51 and together with Wriddhiman Saha (30 off 31 balls), tried to restore the injury however the duo have been dismissed on the loss of life and SRH lacked the completion to accept a seemingly below-par whole.
In contrast to their final match towards Mumbai Indians, KKR appeared extra intent and aggressive with their method, having introduced in Sunil Narine and Cummins up entrance with the brand new ball.
Cummins neatly altered his size and bowled Jonny Bairstow with an absolute ripper to provide KKR the primary breakthrough.
In his second-coming, architect-turned thriller spinner Chakravarthy dismissed a well-set Warner (36 off 30) in a mushy method for his maiden IPL wicket, giving KKR the massive breakthrough.
The Australian left-hander, who received out cheaply towards Royal Challengers Bangalore, appeared to make a mark with some clear hits, however a lapse in focus did him in and he spooned a easy catch to Chakravarthy.
The 2 wickets meant that SRH couldn’t step up the momentum and on the midway mark, at 61 for 2, the run-rate was simply above six.
