After 20 overs,Sunrisers Hyderabad 155/6 ( Naman Ojha (W) 10 , Bipul Sharma 21)

Final over bowled by Boult! Bipul brings up the 150 with back-to-back boundaries, the first of which is top-edged towards the long-stop boundary. Just four runs in the remainder of the over, with Ojha getting a leg-bye in the last ball as Kolkata seal their third win of the tournament in style. 


Kolkata Knight Riders defeat Sunrisers Hyderabad by 17 runs! 


The going got extremely tough for SRH after the loss of key batsmen in Yuvraj and Cutting, and the KKR bowlers did well in sticking to attacking lines and lengths. With this win, KKR move to the top of the points table.

After 19 overs,Sunrisers Hyderabad 143/6 ( Naman Ojha (W) 10 , Bipul Sharma 10)

Woakes to bowl the penultimate over. Bipul shows some last-minute resistance by coming down the track, and hammering the English pacer for a six over long-off. Pats the ball down the ground again, this time to get a double. Ojha tries pulling the final ball towards the fine-leg region, though he doesn't quite get his pull right. Kuldeep puts up a brave show at short fine, where the ball pops out of his hand.

After 18 overs,Sunrisers Hyderabad 132/6 ( Naman Ojha (W) 8 , Bipul Sharma 2)

With the net run-rate climbing rapidly, SRH are under pressure to get quick runs on the board. Things take a turn for the worse at the start of Boult's third over, after Cutting mistimes his slog down the ground to get caught for 15. Just three singles off the over, with the game looking pretty much set in Kolkata's favour right now. 


SRH need 41 to win from 12 balls.

OUT! Cutting was perhaps the last hope for an SRH win, and Boult returns to the attack and gets rid of him to put KKR in the driver's seat! Cutting looked to slog the first ball of the over down the ground, but doesn't quite connect well as he gets caught by Colin de Grandhomme near the long-off boundary. SRH 129/6

After 17 overs,Sunrisers Hyderabad 129/5 ( Ben Cutting 15 , Naman Ojha (W) 7)

Woakes into his third over. Fine effort by Boult and Suryakumar at deep square-leg to save two runs for KKR after a flick off Ojha's bat. Cutting unleashes his bat in the fifth ball of the over, smashing a fuller ball from Woakes straight down the ground. 13 off the over, which still keeps them in the hunt for now.  


SRH need 44 to win from 18 balls. 

Apr 15, 2017 - 19:12 (IST)

After 16 overs,Sunrisers Hyderabad 116/5 ( Ben Cutting 7 , Naman Ojha (W) 3)

Pressure returns to the SRH batsmen, as Cutting and new batsman Naman Ojha gather just three runs in the 16th over of the innings, bowled by Narine. The Trinidadian offie finishes with superb figures of 1/18 from four overs, as the umpire signals for the second timeout of the innings. 


SRH need 57 to win from 24 balls. 

Apr 15, 2017 - 19:10 (IST)

After 15 overs,Sunrisers Hyderabad 113/5 ( Ben Cutting 6 , Naman Ojha (W) 1)

Woakes into his second over. Starts off with a wide that nearly went to the slips, before getting smacked royally by Yuvraj for a six over the extra-cover boundary, with the latter reaching out for the short, wide delivery. Cutting pulls a length delivery along middle and leg towards the midwicket boundary to get his first boundary on the board, and announce himself at the crease. Woakes though, manages to retain some pride in the penultimate ball of the over, getting Yuvraj to mishit off a slow bouncer to send the flamboyant left-hander back in the dugout. 


SRH need 60 to win from 30 balls. 

Preview: Defending champions Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) will have their task cut out when they take on a confident Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in an Indian Premier League (IPL) square-up at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Saturday.

The David Warner-skippered visitors have looked in good touch in their first three matches albeit succumbing to the guile of Mumbai Indians' Harbhajan Singh and losing the previous encounter on the road.

Harbhajan, a veteran of 103 Tests and 236 ODIs for India, brought all his experience into play to dish out a miserly spell of four overs conceding just 23 runs with two wickets of SRH captain David Warner and Deepak Hooda.
The timely blow, especially of Warner who was looking good for his polished 49, stalled SRH'S charge as they managed to post 158 in their 20 overs which eventually proved insufficient as Rohit Sharma and co won by four wickets with more than an over remaining.

But the reversal has been more of an aberration as SRH showed their class in their victory marchA over Royal Challengers Bangalore and Gujarat Lions in thr first two matches.

Against a weakened RCB -- who were without the services of captain Virat Kohli, star South African batsman AB De Villiers, and Indian opener KL Rahul -- SRH rode a whirlwind 27-ball 62 from seasoned campaigner Yuvraj Singh to post a mammoth 207 batting first, finally scripting a 35-run win.

Captain Warner (76, 45b; 6x4, 4x6) and compatriot Moises Henriques (52, 39b; 6x4, 0x6) made short work of Lions' modest 135 in their next game on the way to a nine-wicket triumph.

Besides the batsmen, 18-year old Afghanistan spinner Rashid Khan has started his maiden IPL stint with a bang, already having six wickets in his kitty.

But in KKR, the tourists will face a side basking in the glory of a marauding eight-wicket triumph over Kings XI Punjab on Thursday at the same venue.

Skipper Gautam Gambhir led from the front with an unbeaten 72 off 49 balls as the twice IPL champions recorded their season's first home victory in style with 21 balls to spare.

Sunil Narine vindicated his team's decision to promote him as an opening bat by cracking a 18-ball 37 to set the stage for his side's win with Robin Uthappa (26 off 16) and Manish Pandey (25 off 16 not out) getting starts.

While chasing, KKR seemed to be preferring a foil to Gambhir who would whack the ball from the outset.

Chris Lynn was just what the doctor had ordered as the Australian bludgeoned 93 off 41 balls in the first game against Gujarat Lions. But with him out for a lengthy period due to a shoulder injury, that option was gone.

Narine, much to everyone's surprise, filled the that role studiously on Thursday and KKR would be hoping the West Indian mystery spinner can continue that.

In nine matches played between the two teams, SRH have won only thrice, finishing second best six times.

Squads:

KKR: Gautam Gambhir (c), Sunil Narine, Kuldeep Yadav, Manish Pandey, Suryakumar Yadav, Piyush Chawla, Robin Uthappa, Shakib Al Hasan, Chris Lynn, Umesh Yadav, Yusuf Pathan, Sheldon Jackson, Ankit Singh Rajpoot, Trent Boult, Chris Woakes, Rishi Dhawan, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Rovman Powell, R Sanjay Yadav, Ishank Jaggi, Darren Bravo, Sayan Ghosh, AColin de Grandhomme

SRH: David Warner (capt), Shikhar Dhawan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Moises Henriques, Naman Ojha, Ricky Bhui, Kane Williamson, Siddarth Kaul, Bipul Sharma, Ashish Nehra, Yuvraj Singh, Ben Cutting, Abhimanyu Singh, Mustafizur Rahman, Barinder Sran, Deepak Hooda, Vijay Shankar, Rashid Khan, Mohammad Siraj, Eklavya Dwivedi, Chris Jordan, Mohammad Nabi, Ben Laughlin, Tanmay Agarwal, Pravin Tambe
