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.

Earlier, KKR finally had to depend on an aggressive 68 off 39 balls by Robin Uthappa and another polished knock of 46 by Manish Pandey and their 77-run to get a battling score on the board. But after they departed in quick succession, the rest of the batting couldn’t quite capitalize and despite some attempt at using the long handle by Yusuf Pathan, ended up with 172/6 in 20 overs. Bhuvneshwar Kumar returned figures for 3/20 to keep KKR at bay. (SCORECARD)

That's it from us today as far as this game is concerned. The action now shifts to the next match of the day which is between Delhi and Punjab. You can switch tabs to follow it. Cheers!

Man of the Match, Robin Uthappa says that he is hitting the ball well. Thinks that years of hardwork is finally coming good and is really confident. Adds that he is feeling settled with the new technique and his own faith in himself is more now which helps him. Mentions that he likes the number three spot as the team wants him there. Conveys that he likes the responsibility and is growing from strength to strength. Hopes that it will be a good year for him.

Kolkata skipper, Gautam Gambhir says that quality side looks to win both batting first or second. Opines that they are a good chasing side but the result of the toss shouldn't matter to them. Thinks that they were aware of the spin that the deck possesses. Mentions that they saw Rashid Khan spinning the ball and that gave them the confidence that Kuldeep Yadav and Sunil Narine could do the same. Felt that they thought 170-plus was a good score and adds that maintaining pressure in the first six overs was crucial which they did. Says that one or two players don't win the tournament, a team does but admits that Uthappa and Pandey were superb today. Ends by saying that they are looking forward to the Delhi fixture.

!

Hyderabad skipper, David Warner says they tried their best to make the most of the dry conditions. Adds that they have to adapt to the conditions well. Mentions that they failed to build partnerships and bat deep. Reckons that they will now head back home and they are happy to do so. Ends by saying that they still haven't been able to find a victory on this venue.

Talking about the pacers, all went for runs and could've bowled a lot more disciplined lines. Had it not been for their spinners, they could've lost the game. The visitors have now lost consecutive matches and that will concern them a bit. In the first innings, Robin Uthappa and Manish Pandey were the stars. Robin, riding on some luck, scored 68 with a strike rate of 174.36 while Manish fell four short of a well deserved half century. Bhuvneshwar Kumar was the visiting side's pick of the bowlers as he snared three wickets and also kept the flow of runs in check. Who will be the Man of the Match? Narine or Uthappa? Let's find out at the presentation.

!

Two bowlers who gift wrapped the match for their side were Sunil Narine and Kuldeep Yadav. In a chase of 173, both the spinners snared one wicket each and bowled under the economy of 6. That literally finished the game for Hyderabad as the asking rate was out of the new batsmen's reach later on. David Warner clearly was struggling against spin and succumbed to a beauty from Kuldeep. Yuvraj Singh got going for a while too before Chris Woakes got rid of him.
