Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) registered their second consecutive home win by beating Sunrisers Hyderabad by 17 runs in the match 14 of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Despite a solid start from the SRH openers -- David Warner and Shikhar Dhawan -- KKR bowlers fought their way back with wickets at regular intervals. The middle-order batsmen played too slow to cope up with the required run rate as it kept on climbing over by over. For Sunrisers Hyderabad, Warner and Yuvraj Singh scored the highest 26 and for Kolkata, Sunil Narine registered the best bowling figure 18/1 in four overs. Supporting Narine, Boult and Woakes chipped in with wickets regularly for KKR. (SCORECARD)

SRH, on the other hand, would be thinking of ways to get back to winning ways. After beginning with two consecutive victories, Hyderabad suddenly find themselves in the losers' seat after going down to Mumbai Indians. However, skipper David Warner should not be unduly worried, since his side is only one win away from getting back on the rails. He would, however, be looking for more contributions from Deepak Hooda, Yuvraj Singh and Ben Cutting in the middle of the innings. He, however, would be over the moon with the manner in which his young Afghan leg-spinner Rashid Khan has come to the party.
