Kolkata Knight Riders registered their second consecutive win today against SRH going very strong in this IPL 2017. They defeated SRH by 17 runs and they won comfortably in the home ground. Sometimes our decision may go wrong, Sunrisers Hyderabad won the toss and decided to field.
This time Gambhir struggled a bit and Robin Uthappa took charge today and well compiled 68 run knock guided KKR to a 17-run win over SRH at Eden Gardens. Manish Pandey scored 46 runs and this partnership and Yusuf Pathan contribution of 21 runs help KKR to complete the innings with the total of 172/6.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar bowling attack is really impressive and a challenging one. David Warner and Shikhar Dhawan got SRH off to a steady start but the middle-order batsmen played too slow to cope up with the required run rate as it kept on climbing over by over. Yuvraj Singh and Ben Cutting hit some shots but it wasn’t enough, as they eventually lost by 17 runs.
