Clinical KKR restrict Sunrisers to 128/7

Mumbai Indians Malinga IPL 2017 playoffs Qualifier 1

Two-time champions KKR defeated title holders Sunrisers by seven wickets in a rain-truncated match to enter the Qualifier 2 of IPL.

KKR waited on tenterhooks for the rain to relent and when it finally did, well past midnight, they were left with a target of 48 runs in six overs.

Kolkata Knight Riders captain Gautam Gambhir won the toss and elected to bowl first against Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL Eliminator, here today. Gambhir's men will now meet Mumbai Indians here on Friday for a place in the final. It was quite a tough wicket to bat on. However, unfortunately you need to go out sometimes when you are in the knockouts. Both Warner and the bowler himself would be hoping that things work out for him. They had a good outfield when they fielded and the ball didn't get wet, so same conditions should be there for us because one side shouldn't get advantage. We won it a year ago, and that is not going to happen every time.

Rain had stopped play for almost three hours soon after Sunrisers were restricted to 128-7.

It took the generally explosive Warner eight overs to hit the first six of the match, punishing a poor Piyush Chawla ball by rocking on to his backfoot and pulling the leg-spinner to deep midwicket. KKR, on the other hand, have Gautam Gambhir and Robin Uthappa in making up their batting line up and all three of them have impressed this season. I think if you target 160 you will get a good score.

Ankit Rajpoot's cutters cost KKR is only having 25 runs in the four overs when they played RCB is captured an important position in the IPL point table.

After the reports spread Monday night, Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisconsin, released a statement through his spokesman, Doug Andres. Republican leaders are the only members to have heard from the White House on the topic so far.

The momentum would just not come for SRH, despite the experienced Kane Williamson joining Warner, who scored a tremendous century the last time he played against KKR, in the middle. Nathan Coulter-Nile bowled at full tilt on a match and this will be helping the team to win the match.

Dhawan slashed at a good length delivery from Umesh, only managing to balloon it to Robin Uthappa behind the stumps with the Sunrisers scoreboard reading 25 for one.

5th player to score 4,000 runs in IPL - David Warner.

The rain started in the final over of the Hyderabad innings and threatened to end the game there and then - a no-result would have given Sunrisers Hyderabad a weird win. Nehra played 6 matches in the 10th edition of IPL and took 8 wickets.

For KKR it's only the players the team is having needed to perform well for the betterment of the team.
