IPL 2018: Sunrisers Hyderabad defeats Kolkata Knight Riders by 5 wickets

IPL 2018: Sunrisers Hyderabad defeats Kolkata Knight Riders by 5 wickets

Defending champions Mumbai Indians hold the edge as they have a better record against Delhi Daredevils but it does not guarantee a win as the Twenty20 format has scant respect for form and fame.

Where will Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) vs Delhi Daredevils (DD), Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018 match be played?

Deepak Hooda (5) and Yusuf Pathan (17) ensured the visitors crossed the finishing line to ensure their third win in this season of the IPL.

Both players have strong personalities and fiery temperaments, and neither shirks a fight, as they showed when India hosted England in a five-Test series in 2016.

After being put to bat, the strategy of opening the inning with Yadav, instead of captain Rohit Sharma, and Evin Lewis worked wonderfully well, as they gave MI a flying start with a 102-run-stand.

The Delhi bowling was as generous as the fielding in the powerplay and openers Suryakumar and Lewis made hay, with the latter - out for a duck on his debut just a week earlier - hitting four boundaries in a scintillating sixth over. MI skipper Rohit Sharma promoted Surya Kumar Yadav at the top of the batting order and dropped himself at NO. 4.

For KKR, Sunil Narine picked up 2 wickets while Kuldeep Yadav, Mitchell Johnson and Piyush Chawla all getting one wicket each. That is not a bad score, but the way he got out and the temperament behind that was very unfortunate. He was not in good touch at all, and he did not look like the responsible player he once used to be. Roy's straight shots were so powerful they were out of reach of even Kieron Pollard's full-blooded leaps. He came in, made a decision to play a shot and ended up losing his wicket - not something worthy of his T20 stature.

"We were 10-15 runs short but still 180-plus score is a good score on any ground".

Not a sub-par total, but it should have been much more, given the start MI had got.

Mumbai's find of the season so far, the legspinner Mayank Markande, had his first rough night in the IPL. Shakib celebrated Bengali New Year in style as Sunrisers managed their first win in Kolkata. The Englishman's thunderous knock, punctuated with six sixes and as many fours, helped Delhi overhaul Mumbai's total of 194 with seven wickets in hand. Left-arm spinner Shahbaz Nadeem was horribly inaccurate and did not flight the ball, while Shami and Dan Christian bowled lengths that allowed the batsmen room. But now we have played three and won one. Their win percentage in 37 early matches is a poor 35.14, with success in just 13 games.
