Nile stars as Kolkata defeat Hyderabad in rain-curtailed match

Nile stars as Kolkata defeat Hyderabad in rain-curtailed match

Losing the toss, SRH came out to bat but hardly could dominate the KKR bowling and finished the innings with slightly higher than six runs per over. After a delay of 2 and half hours, the match began, but the target was set at 48 runs from 6 overs! We'll never know. But there's this: KKR deserved to win this; they bossed the entire first innings, and despite hiccups early in the chase, Gambhir had the ability, and the nerve, to calm things down and guide his team home. He played well in the last league match against SRH. Their performance has fallen a lot in the last few games that have resulted in them in finishing at the 4th position.

In the end, the frustration got the better of Williamson (24, 26b, 2x4, 1x6), who found the man at extra cover, before, two balls later, Piyush Chawla, in for Kuldeep Yadav, castled Warner (37, 35b, 2x4, 2x6).

The bowlers of KKR has planned well and gave a force towards the SRH's batting. Unfortunately, the opening couples didn't performed well and also the the team started their slow run at the beginning of the match.

"You do get nervous (about the rain) and we have played really well this season and our bowlers put in an unbelievable effort and if we had gone out after the rain, it wouldn't have been good".

Sunrisers Hyderabad started low at the beginning of their campaign, but the team gained promising en route with more and more game they played together. KKR defended 172 at Eden Gardens in the first meeting. All the top three openers are didn't score double digit runs.

Watch out for: Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Robin Uthappa and Chris Lynn opened the innings for the two-time champions but the move backfired as Lynn fell on the third ball of the first over followed by Yusuf Pathan in the very next delivery from Chris Jordan.

After three wickets in the first two overs, the KKR's captain arrive to score 27 runs in remainning four overs. But Gambhir steadied the ship, scoring a 19-ball-32, as KKR won with four balls to spare at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium here on Wednesday.




KKR have an abysmal 5-15 head-to-head record against Mumbai Indians, who notched up twin victories over their rivals in the league stage of the tournament this year. So when they take on SRH in the Eliminator, KKR will perform as per the rules.

A total of just six runs from the next over left the Knight riders with it all to do.

For a long time, it looked like the Kolkata Knight Riders had been dealt with the cruellest of hands by the rain Gods.

KKR's bowlers have all made significant contributions.

SRH: 128/7 in 20 overs.

The team cemented their play-offs berth on the back of a resounding eight-wicket win over Gujarat in their last league match.
