KKR vs SRH Match Report 8
Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) was successful in securing two points with a seven-wicket win over Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the eighth IPL match of the Dream11 Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 in Abu Dhabi on Saturday.
The match was no doubt exciting with KKR needing 43 runs to win. But KKR lost Sunil Narine in the second over as David Warner held onto a catch off Khaleel Ahmed’s bowling. Nitish Rana and Gill, though, scored at a rapid pace, taking on SRH swiftly.
Later, Gill and Morgan completed the fifty-run stand. Morgan then geared up to hit a six and a four off Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Rashid respectively. While Gill hit a six off Abhishek Sharma, Morgan, who scored an unbeaten 42, closed out the game, hitting a six and a four to help KKR cross the finish line leaving with two overs.
After electing to bat, SRH posted 142/4 on the board on the back of Manish Pandey’s 51. Finally, Wriddhiman Saha joined Pandey in the middle and both added 62 runs together to push KKR past 120. However, Pandey, soon after bringing up his fifty and looking to add some quick runs, got out in the 18th over as Andre Russell gave their third wicket. Saha then perished in the final over as KKR managed to restrict SRH to 142/4.
