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)
