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

Ricky Ponting had a brief spell with Surrey in county cricket

Williamson and Shakib eased the nerves - Williamson notching his 18th T20 fifty from 43 balls and Shakib passing 4,000 runs in the format - and even though they fell towards the death, Yusuf Pathan (17no of 7) pulled Russell over deep square for the match-winning six with an over to spare. Bhuvneshwar Kumar of SRH took 3 wickets. Run rate drastically dropped as the Sunrisers reached to 62 for 3 at halfway mark, needing 77 from the remaining 10 overs.

With three wins in three matches under their belt, SRH are sitting at the helm of the points table with six points. "The younger talent of the team will particularly benefit from Nayar's experience and mentoring", KKR CEO Venky Mysore tweeted, without specifying Nayar's role.

For the hosts, opener Chris Lynn (49; 34b 7x4 1x6) was the top-scorer as skipper Dinesh Karthik laboured to a 27-ball 29 hitting two fours and a six.

Lynn was the lone KKR crusader in the middle but a sensational diving catch by Shakib off his own bowling denied the Australian a half-century as the star Bangladeshi cricketer once again did his job in the middle overs. Karnataka seamer Prasidh Krishna was announced as the replacement for the Under-19 World Cup winning pacer who was bought at a price of Rs 3.2 crore.


Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) vs Delhi Daredevils (DD), Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018 match will be played on April 16, 2018. But the rain didn't play a spoilt sport and good for the fans that the entire match went through.

But SRH did well to bounce back, riding on a splendid catch by Manish Pandey.

Earlier, India pace spearhead Bhuvneshwar Kumar delivered crucial blows as SRH made the most of a hour-long rain break and some excellent catching by Manish Pandey to restrict KKR to a modest 138/8.
