Chasing a target of 178 in Pune was always going to be tricky and Kane Williamson’s poor form did not help. The SRH skipper scored just 9 off 17 deliveries before being dismissed by Andre Russell. But it was Rahul Tripathi’s wicket that all but shattered SRH’s hopes.

Tim Southee took a blinder of a catch in his follow-through to dismiss Tripathi. Abhishek Sharma, who was looking in good touch, had to up the scoring rate but fell for 28-ball 43 to Andre Russell.

Then on, it became a struggle as Sunrisers Hyderabad kept losing wickets at regular intervals. Nicholas Pooran and Aiden Markram both fell trying to go for the big hits. In the end, SRH could only manage 123/8, losing the match by 54 runs. Russell bagged three wickets for 22 runs.

Earlier, opting to bat, Kolkata Knight Riders posted 177/6. Andre Russell was the star with a 28-ball 49 after Umran Malik bagged three wickets to deal KKR a blow. But with Sam Billings, Russell stitched together a 63-run stand to steady the ship.

Opting to bat, Kolkata Knight Riders struggled once again. Venkatesh Iyer fell in the 2nd over and although Ajinkya Rahane and Nitish Rana helped KKR post 55/1 in powerplay, they lost quick wickets in the middle-overs.

Kolkata Knight Riders (6th, 12 Points): Shreyas Iyer & Co keep their playoff hopes alive but only just. KKR have to win their last game against LSG but even that will not guarantee their place in playoffs. If RCB win their last match against GT and DC & PBKS win their last two games, KKR will crash out.

  • KKR need to win their last match against LSG.
  • But they will also have to depend on RCB’s last game against GT and results of Delhi Capitals as well Punjab Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad.
  • Even after winning their last match, they can reach a maximum of 14 points.
  • KKR Remaining Matches: LSG
