  • IPL 2018 Bowlers Kane Williamson take Hyderabad to third successive win

Along with Royal Challengers Bangalore, SRH are one team which has only used 5 bowlers in the 3 matches that they have played till now.

Earlier, a superb bowling performance led by Bhuvneshwar Kumar helped Hyderabad restrict Kolkata to a modest 138/8 in the rain-interrupted match. But KKR has won the first match against RCB but lost the second match CSK. SRH 46/2.In OVER 7: Kuldeep Yadav gave away just three runs. Dinesh Karthik brought in debutant Tom Curran in place of Mitchell Johnson and the move didn't quite pay the dividends as he would've liked. Both teams played out thrillers in their previous matches, with Hyderabad getting past Mumbai Indians by one wicket, while Kolkata lost against Chennai in a last-over chase. So, when Kane Williamson won the toss, it did not come as surprise when he invited Dinesh Karthik & Co.to bat first. The bowling lineup of both the sides features some of the best bowlers internationally.

Captain Williamson made exactly 50 from 44 balls and Yusuf Pathan hit a huge six to win it with an over to spare, consigning KKR to back-to-back defeats. Leg-spinner Rashid Khan had another brilliant outing with the ball, returning with exceptional figures 4 overs, 13 runs and 1 wicket. Mavi bowled just the one over, conceding 10 runs in what turned out to be an overall disappointing game for KKR. Sunil Narine cleaned up Shikhar Dhawan for 7. SRH will want the other batsmen to step up to the occasion and make things easy for their skipper. They were looking set for a good score before rain came. Whereas hosts KKR will hope to continue their dominance on their home ground. Bhuvneshwar once again shone at the death, claiming 3/26 as Kolkata's batting line-up failed to shine in front of their home support.




It will be interesting to see Narine vs Rashid Khan in the start as one has proved himself as a lethal batsman while the other is now the number one T-20 bowler.

Karthik admitted that KKR's pacers have to work a bit on their length.
