IPL 2021, KKR vs SRH Highlights.

IPL 2021, KKR vs SRH Highlights: Kolkata Knight Riders defeated the Sunrisers Hyderabad in their Indian Premier League encounter on Sunday. Shubman Gill’s gritty 57 was what the doctor had ordered for the Knight Riders’ innings, which had gone into a slump after powerplay. KKR remain fourth after this game, still in contention, with one game to go.

Earlier, SRH’s batting problems continued as they failed to muster strong resistance against the KKR bowlers. Kane Williamson and Priyam Garg tried to make something happened but they could not do much against an inspired KKR bowling attack. Southee, Mavi and Chakaravarthy bowled extremely well to restrict the Orange army 115/8 after 20 overs.

Brief scores:

Kolkata Knight Riders: Shubman Gill (57), Nitish Rana (25); Jason Holder 2/32

Sunrisers Hyderabad:  Kane Williamson (26), Abdul Samad (25); Tim Southee 2/26, Shivam Mavi 2/29, Varun Chakravarthy 2/26

IPL 2021, KKR vs SRH Highlights:

Handshake, then and now

Eoin Morgan was around at the non-strikers' to see Dinesh Karthik finish it off for KKR who won by 6 wickets. On the other side of his commiserations for losing was Kane Williamson, who would smile his lower-jaw smile politely, shake his head in stoic acceptance and gently ease off proceedings, like his usual nice self. Not that Kane isn't able to bubble in all the excitement that plays out on the field. His outfield catch running back earlier brought something resembling a shoulder Ketchup Song jig with Jason Roy. But a loss in the low-scoring game on a slow wicket, even as things went into the last over, put him in a familiar downer of a result, as SRH is all but out of contention. Later he would be seen post the game chatting away gleefully with DK and Morgan, doing another animated upper body jive, narrating some source of amusement. The world will stay hung up on that 50 over dramatic final that the national team of England whisked away from NZ. The two captains remain affable totems of normalcy, as if to say, it's just a game of cricket.
