SRH bowlers produce impressive show, restrict KKR to 138/8

A Kane Willamson half-century and an excellent performance in the field helped Sunrisers Hyderabad maintain their flawless Indian Premier League record with a five-wicket win over Kolkata Knight Riders.

The left-arm spinner's arm ball stuck a bit on the pitch and the batsman ended up popping it wide to the left side of the bowler, which he grabbed it diving full length. Their batting is heavily dependent on Shikhar Dhawan, and in both the outings so far he has taken the heat from others around him.

Williamson and Shakib eased the nerves - Williamson notching his 18th T20 fifty from 43 balls and Shakib passing 4,000 runs in the format - and even though they fell towards the death, Yusuf Pathan (17no of 7) pulled Russell over deep square for the match-winning six with an over to spare.

True to expectations, the quick bowlers had a good outing in the previous match at the Eden Gardens; where they picked up 10 wickets (economy 8.54), while the spin bowlers collected 3 wickets (economy 9.50).

Kolkata were struggling to force the pace and were 97-5 after 14 overs with captain Dinesh Karthik on 6.

138 for 8 in 20 overs (Chris Lynn 49; Bhuvneshwar Kumar 3/26).

But post the interruption, Hyderabad came back into the match in style, with Manish Pandey taking a splendid catch off the bowling of Stanlake to remove Rana.

KKR were looking good with Lynn and Rana in the middle before rain stopped the play at the score of 52/1 in seven overs.

Soon after KKR's innings resumed, Pandey took a blinder at point to cut short another Nitish Rana innings when it was in its prime by pouching a fierce square-cut on his second attempt after flying to his right.

Hyderabad will be sweating while selecting the playing XI.

"We know that Shubman is a top-order batsman, but you have got to understand the dynamics of the game".
