Sunrisers score clinical win over Kolkata

Sunrisers score clinical win over Kolkata

April 22, 2019

David Warner (38-ball 67) and Jonny Bairstow (43-ball 80n.o) ripped Kolkata apart with their fourth 100-plus partnership this season and helped Sunrisers register a clinical nine-wicket win.

The two added 131 runs in 12.2 overs as Hyderabad raced to a nine-wicket win at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium and leapfrogged Kings XI Punjab to take the No. 4 spot in the points table.

Asked to bat, Sunil Narine did his thing and got Kolkata off to an expeditious start. Hyderabad made the mistake of bowling Shahbaz Nadeem to Narine and the left-handed batsman from Trinidad smoked him for two sixes before smashing Khaleel Ahmed (3 for 33) for 6, 4 and 4 in three consecutive deliveries. The paceman got his revenge in the fourth ball when he knocked Narine over for 8-ball 25 with a slower delivery.

The visiting side were 42 for 1 in 2.4 overs when Narine perished but failed to keep up the momentum. Shubman Gill (3), Nitish Rana (11) and Dinesh Karthik (6) departed without contributing much and Kolkata were reduced to 73 for 4. With wickets falling at the other end, Lynn couldn’t play his natural game and ended up playing way too many deliveries. K. Khaleel Ahmed was Man of the Match.
