IPL Cricket: Williamson plays captain's knock in Sunrisers win

IPL Cricket: Williamson plays captain's knock in Sunrisers win

A Kane Willamson half-century and an excellent performance in the field helped Sunrisers Hyderabad maintain their ideal Indian Premier League record with a five-wicket win over Kolkata Knight Riders.

"(Andre) Russell bowling some good pace and that's a very good sign for us.

Karthik admitted that KKR's pacers have to work a bit on their length. But Bhuvaneshwar got back at Karthik (29 off 27 balls) by slipping in a knuckle ball which the batsman edged to the wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha. Siddarth Kaul continued his good run from the first match and picked 2/29 whereas Sandeep scalped 2/25.

KKR captain Karthik said, "The wicket plays good throughout".

The 2018 U-19 World Cup victor will be replaced by Karnataka fast bowler Prasidh Krishna. "The ball was holding up, so bowling the spinners was the best way of taking wickets", he added.

R Vinay Kumar has been the weakest link among KKR pacers leaking 65 runs from 3.5 overs at an economy of 16.95 in two matches.

After two failures, Chris Lynn (49) let everyone know why he is rated so highly as he scored at a quick clip but fell just one run short of a much deserved half century. Hyderabad, who have a strong bowling pack will be aiming to restrict their opponents to a low total and then chase it down in their quest to register their first victory at the venue.

Pandey took two outstanding catches to send Nitish Rana (18; 16b 2×4 1×6) and Andre Russell (9; 5b 0x4 1×6) - back in the hut as SRH bowlers took control after a rain-induced halt when KKR were going steady at 52/1.

But SRH did well to bounce back, riding on a splendid catch by Manish Pandey. Lynn was on 34 and Sunil Narine, was the new batsman in.

Hyderabad will be sweating while selecting the playing XI. With a ideal combination of Spin and Pace, both the teams will try to apply their respective strategies against each other, not allowing the hard hitters to score in the power plays.
