And its time for the strategic timeout at the moment! 

FOUR! Gambhir launches Mustafizur towards the cow-corner boundary to inch closer towards the finish line! SIX! The skipper gets his first six of the innings by launching the half-vollery over long-on! Just 1 run needed off 12 balls now!

After blocking the first ball, Gambhir whacks the ball towards wide long-on to help KKR win by eight wickets with 10 balls to spare.

After 15 overs,Kolkata 112/2 ( Gautam Gambhir (C) 63 , Manish Pandey 5)

Fifty for Gambhir off the first ball of the 13th over, and Gambhir continues his fantastic run of form at the start of the ninth edition of the IPL. OUT! Reddy finally gets the much-awaited breakthrough for SRH, although the home side may feel they are a little too late in the match now. Uthappa departs for a 34-ball 38, bringing an end to the solid 92-run opening stand, and out walks the dangerous and hard-hitting Andre Russell!

OUT! Mustafizur finally strikes, and boy does he get a wicket in style. Lethal yorker to uproot Russell's middle-stump and floor the batsman! Russell departs for 2 as KKR lose their 2nd wicket with 97 on board. Meanwhile, the 100 comes up for KKR at the end of the 14th over. Meanwhile, Manish Pandey joins Gambhir at the centre. FOUR! Too much room offered to the KKR skipper, who is only happy to accept it! Follows it up with another boundary towards fine-leg! 

Apr 16, 2016 - 19:02 (IST)

KKR 97/2 in 13.4 overs; Gambhir 53(43)

Mustafizur may have bowled one of the best deliveries of his career as he floors Andre Russell with a majestic yorker that uproots the middle-stump. Brilliant stuff from the young pace sensation, as Russell departs for two off five balls, with KKR losing their second wicket with 97 on board. 

Preview: Seeking to shrug off the defeat in their IPL campaign opener against Royal Challengers Bangalore, Sunrisers Hyderabad would look to put their best foot forward in Saturday's match against Kolkata Knight Riders, coach Tom Moody said on Friday.

"Even though, we lost the first game, we are going to this with lots of confidence. (There are) lots of things we can take away from that game in Bangalore. It gave us lot of confidence with the bat and ball," Moody said at the pre-match press conference at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, in Hyderabad.
The Sunrisers lost by 45 runs to RCB in Bengaluru earlier this week.

Noting that KKR are a strong side, Moody said the Sunrisers would like to come up with a competitive performance on Saturday.

"KKR are a strong team. They have shown it over time.
So, it is going to be a tough contest. I think every side in the competition is pretty well balanced. There is no so called easy game. We certainly have to play our best cricket to score winning points tomorrow," he said.
Though Sunrisers' seasoned bowler Ashish Nehra is injured, the team has back up replacement options in Barinder Sran and Abhimanyu Mithun, he said.

"Obviously, with Ashish Nehra injured, a bowler of that quality, it is going to have an impact on any side. We are conscious to make sure we have strong support behind our bowling. With Sran and Mithun we got capable and talented backup pace bowlers. So we are confident we have potential replacement," Moody said.
The team does posses "depth and quality" in batting, though the experienced Yuvraj Singh is injured for now, said the Australian.

Observing that the Sunrisers batting mainstay Shikhar Dhawan was a hard working player, Moody said it's only a matter of time before he comes up with an impressive performance.
