KKR opt to bowl first.
Warner and Johnny Bairstow opens
appeal, an immediate decision and an even quicker review! Jonny didn’t read
Chawla’s googly – though he bowls them five times in an over – and got struck
on the pad while he was on the back-foot. Bairstow reviews like a man who knew
he’d faintly nicked it. Snicko agrees and he lives on.
after 6 overs
have a reason to rejoice – David Warner is back! And back like he was probably
never away. He’s taken on KKR’s strength – their spin bowling – and picked runs
off both Piyush Chawla and Sunil Narine.
for David Warner
there with a six off the 31st ball he played. That’s his 37th IPL fifty!
Warner is on beast mode
hit that straight to the Cameraman at long-on. So sorry Mr. Cameraman
drops a sitter of Warner from Asgardian lockie delivery
a Warner’s day i guess
cleaned him up. He goes for 39. Shankar comes in.
Comeback time Baby!
chance now, with David Warner out for a 53-ball 85.Uthappa dived forward to
take a very good low catch after Andre Russell bowled a wide half-volley that
the SRH opener went after.
will have to wait further as Yusuf Pathan has walked out at No.4.
Russell has cleaned up Yusuf Pathan! And once again Yusuf falls to a slower
ball chops to stump. Manish Pandey comes to crease.
the batsmen charging down the track so he bowls an armball which skids through
and Lynn doesn’t get proper connection and Rashid does the rest.
in 2 overs.
Rana, Robin Uthappa get a move on
47/1 in 6
stage -KKR 72/1 in 10overs The equation Says 112 runs required from the last 60
Robin is gone
took the perfect route of bowling a pin point yorker after dishing a bouncer to
rattle Robbie’s stump.
Knuckle bowl gets the skipper
was trying for a big one but got foxed by a knuckle ball and ball balloons back
Khan removes Nitish Rana! Oh man how much can a break can impact a batsman’s
rhythm. Rashid Khan traps him leg before with a conventional leg break to dent
KKR. Rana walks back for an excellent 47-ball 68.
of optimism for KKR is that Rashid is done with his four overs. But, Andre
Russell and Shubman Gill still have two overs of Bhuvneshwar Kumar to deal with
in the final four.
equation is 78 Runs off 36 Balls
doing what Bhuvi usually does! Excellent, excellent over under the
circumstances. Andre Russell camped well inside the crease to deal with the
yorkers but even that didn’t help. Just six runs off that over!
Russell is turning the game around!
man, this Andre Russell!Take a bow!
taken 18 off the 19 runs from Sid Kaul’s over and has now smashed Bhuvneshwar
Kumar 21 runs!
equation is 14 runs off 6 balls
offered two hit-me balls that Shubman Gill classically dispatched into the
stands. And with that KKR
