Nile, Yadav guide Kolkata to qualifier

19 Mai 2017

David Warner became the first to accomplish this feat.

Kolkata will now hope to defeat Mumbai Indians in their next match in order to book their sport for the Indian Premier League 2017 final.

"The way we batted wasn't good enough and six over games can be niggly".

Wickets were falling at regular intervals and, by the end of the innings, so too was the rain. The batsmen played well, the bowlers who we picked at the auction did well.

Shah Rukh Khan makes an appearance during the match between KKR and SRH.

Chasing the target, Chris Lynn got KKR off to a quick start smashing Bhuvneshwar Kumar for a six. On a slow wicket, SRH struggled to score boundaries and were bowled out for just 128 runs in their allotted 20 overs.

On the other hand, Lynn exposed his intentions as early as their first game of the season with unbeaten 93 off 41 balls against Gujarat Lions. These guys need to bowl well in this match. Since the match is played on a common ground, it will be very hard to predict the victor.

This has been Rohit's poorest IPL season by a distance: he has scored 283 runs at a strike rate of 124.66, while being dismissed for 10 or less nine times - the most times in any of his IPL seasons.

Another major boost that we keep talking about is the way KKR speedsters have flourished this season. Even the players felt unusual going out and playing at that unearthly hour, prompting KKR's Nathan Coulter-Nile to say "you can't be playing cricket at 2 o' clock".

Knight Riders could consider opening the bowling with Sunil Narine.

Knight Riders have a problem or two in the middle order. All the team needs to practice at the hour is - restrained aggression.

The third Australian captain in the IPL, Kings XI Punjab's Glenn Maxwell, did not have a great tournament, with his side finishing just outside the top four and coming under fire from former India opener Virender Sehwag.

KKR overwhelmed the target with four balls to spare.

Warner's total of 641 runs from this season's IPL sees him well clear in the battle for the Orange Cap. The table-topper was widely tipped to cruise into the final, but fell to Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) in Qualifier 1. That stand was broken in the fifteenth when Hardik Pandya got one to take the inside edge of de Grandhomme's bat and crash into the stumps. "Tactically too Warner is thorough in prematch preparations and in strategizing, besides allowing his players to express themselves in the field", he said.

SRH: 25/1, Shikhar Dhawan (4.2 overs); 75/2, Kane Williamson (12 overs); 75/3, David Warner (12.2 overs); 99/4, Yuvraj Singh (15.3 overs); 118/5, Vijay Shankar (18.1 overs); 119/6, Chris Jordan (18.3 overs); 128/7, Naman Ojha (20 overs).

Sunrisers were almost gifted a win in the latter stages of a major T20 competition by rain in the most comprehensive and unjust of circumstances.
