IPL 2021, SRH vs KKR Highlights: Eoin Morgan’s Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) beat Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) by 10 runs in their first game of the tournament. SRH’s run chase got off to a poor start as skipper David Warner and wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha got out for single-digit scores. Manish Pandey and Jonny Bairstow helped SRH recover with a 92-run partnership for the third wicket. Bairstow got out for 55 whereas Pandey remained unbeaten for 61. Despite Abdul Samad’s cameo, SRH fell short of the target by 10 runs. Prasidh Krishna picked up two wickets whereas Andre Russell, Pat Cummins and Shakib Al Hasan picked one wicket each.

Earlier SRH skipper Warner won the toss and elected to field first. The plan did not work for Warner’s bowling unit as they leaked runs from the start. Nitish Rana dominated SRH bowlers and shared a 93-run partnership for the second wicket with Rahul Tripathi. Rana scored 80 whereas Tripathi scored 53. Rashid Khan was the pick of the bowlers as he took two wickets for just 24 runs. After the wicket of Rana, KKR’s lost the plot before the death overs. Morgan, Russell and Shakib managed to register single-digit scores. However, Dinesh Karthik was explosive in the end delivering for KKR with an unbeaten 9-ball 22. Karthik’s late cameo helped KKR post a total of 187 for the loss of six wickets. This is KKR’s highest total against SRH. Bhuvneshwar Kumar turned out to be the most expensive bowler giving 45 runs from his quota of four overs.

IPL 2021, SRH vs KKR Highlights:

23:11 (IST)11 Apr 2021
Early wickets cost SRH

The two early wickets and slow scoring rate in the powerplay overs turned out to be the difference between the two teams. KKR were spot on with their plans and their overseas bowlers delivered in the death overs. SRH took some time to figure out their team combination last season. It seems like they need to look at the team combination again this season as well. Well, that's all from today. Stay tuned to Tomorrow, Rajasthan Royals take on Punjab Kings in the fourth match of the season. 

23:02 (IST)11 Apr 2021
Russell ensures KKR's win

Andre Russell finishes bowls a terrific spell in death overs. Russell angled the ball from round the wicket and bowled according to the field. Pandey finishes with a six but KKR win the match by 10 runs. SRH 177/5 after 20 overs

22:59 (IST)11 Apr 2021
Samad brings SRH back in game

Pat Cummins bowls the penultimate over of the innings. Abdul Samad faces his first delivery and hits Cummins for a six over long on. He takes a couple of runs off the next ball and hits another maximum over long on. Just one more single from the over as Pandey fails to get bat on ball on the last delivery. SRH need 22 runs off the final over. Good thing is that they will have Samad on strike. SRH 166/5 after 19 overs

22:53 (IST)11 Apr 2021
Excellent over from Russell

Andre Russell bowls the 18th over. This means Pat Cummins is likely to bowl the penultimate over. Manish Pandey and Vijay Shankar fail to score a boundary in the over. Shankar mistimes the last ball and gets caught inside the 30-yard circle. Just 6 runs and a wicket from the over. SRH need 38 runs from 12 deliveries. SRH 150/3 after 18 overs

22:49 (IST)11 Apr 2021
Pandey reaches fifty

Varun Chakravarthy continues. Manish Pandey gets to his half-century from 37 deliveries. Vijay Shankar ends the over with a six and keeps SRH's hopes alive. They need 44 runs from the remaining three overs. SRH 144/3 after 17 overs

22:44 (IST)11 Apr 2021
Krishna takes his second

Mohammad Nabi replies with a boundary towards extra cover. Prasidh Krishna follows it up with a bouncer, given wide by the umpire. Nabi falls to the slower one and Krishna finishes his spell with a wicket. The Afghan all-rounder departs for 14. SRH in deep trouble. SRH 131/3 after 16 overs

22:40 (IST)11 Apr 2021
Nabi gets hit on helmet

Mohammad Nabi could not get his head away from Prasidh Krishna bouncer. It hits the helmet on the side. Nabi removes the helmet and points towards his neck. Concussion check for Nabi and umpire takes the strategic time out. SRH need 62 runs from 26 balls. Big hitting required in these final overs. This is the area where SRH have struggled. SRH 126/3 after 15.4 overs

22:35 (IST)11 Apr 2021
Run chase getting out of hand

Good over from Varun Chakravarthy. Just five runs from his third over. Hyderabad need a couple of big overs now to get anywhere near the target. They need 69 runs from 30 deliveries now. SRH 119/3 after 15 overs

22:31 (IST)11 Apr 2021
Shakib finishes his spell

Shakib Al Hasan almost gets rid of Mohammad Nabi with his presence of mind. Manish Pandey leads the run chase now and gets the mandatory boundary from the over. Pandey hits Shakib for a six.11 runs from the over. SRH 113/3 after 14 overs

22:26 (IST)11 Apr 2021
Cummins hunts down Bairstow

Excellent over from Pat Cummins under the circumstances. Good lengths, good change of pace with a quick-arm action. On the last ball, he gets the wicket of Jonny Bairstow. The Englishman departs for 55. Just two singles and a wicket from Cummins' third over. SRH 102/3 after 13 overs

22:21 (IST)11 Apr 2021
Fifty for Bairstow

Jonny Bairstow reaches his half-century in style with a six over deep mid-wicket. He gets to the milestone from 31 deliveries. 11 runs off Varun's second over. Will Eoin Morgan continue with Varun or we will see a change in bowling? SRH 100/2 after 12 overs

22:16 (IST)11 Apr 2021
Attack from both sides

Prasidh Krishna's third over does not turn out to be fruitful for KKR. Manish Pandey and Jonny Bairstow score one boundary each. 11 runs from Krishna's over, exactly what SRH require now. SRH 89/2 after 11 overs

22:10 (IST)11 Apr 2021
Bairstow into 40s

Finally, the mystery spinner Varun Chakravarthy into the attack. He starts off with a dot ball. After knocking the ball around for ones and twos Bairstow manages to thread the offside field beating the point fielder. The Englishman is in 40s now. SRH need 11 runs per over now. SRH 77/2 after 10 overs

22:03 (IST)11 Apr 2021
Platform set for run chase

Now Pat Cummins brought back into the attack from the other end. Manish Pandey hits the ball over Pat Cummins' head for a boundary. On the second ball, Pandey could not clear the mid off fielder but the ball falls short of Andre Russell. Five more runs from the over. SRH 69/2 after 9 overs

21:59 (IST)11 Apr 2021
Bairstow gets going

Andre Russell replaces Pat Cummins. The Australian fast bowler bowled just one over, gave three runs and was taken off the attack. We saw a similar tactic by Rishabh Pant last night. However, Russell takes an absolute beating from Jonny Bairstow. Two fours, one six and a single from Russell's first over. The length was too predictable from the Caribbean fast bowler. SRH 60/2 after 8 overs

21:55 (IST)11 Apr 2021
Pandey goes big

Manish Pandey advances down the wicket, gets to the pitch of the ball and lofts the ball over sight screen for a maximum. Four more singles from Shakib Al Hasan's third over. 10 runs off it. SRH need to score big in these middle overs. SRH 45/2 after 7 overs

21:51 (IST)11 Apr 2021
Slow start to run chase

Pat Cummins into the attack in the final over of the powerplay. Good bounce for the tall fast bowler from the pitch. Jonny Bairstow manages a single off the third ball of the over. Cummins is angling the ball in to the two right-handed batsmen. Just three singles from Cummins' first over. SRH 35/2 after 6 overs

21:47 (IST)11 Apr 2021
Bairstow shows first sign of aggression

Jonny Bairstow gives a flashback of India-England limited overs series with a six over covers. Bairstow makes room and goes inside out against Shakib Al Hasan. Manish Pandey takes the aerial route as well. Pandey dances down the wicket and hits it over mid-on fielder for a boundary. 12 runs from Shakib's second over. SRH 32/2 after 5 overs

21:44 (IST)11 Apr 2021
Sloppy fielding

Prasidh Krishna was not happy with overthrow from Shubman Gill. Krishna has been on the money so far. KKR need to put these two under pressure. 9 runs from the over but the required run rate has already reached 10.5 runs per over. This is going to be a tough run chase for SRH. SRH 20/2 after 4 overs

21:36 (IST)11 Apr 2021
Shakib takes first ball wicket

Manish Pandey enters at 3. He starts off with three dot balls. Just 2 runs and a wicket from Prasidh's 1st over then. It's Shakib al Hasan now as KKR continue with spin at the other end. And there is a first ball wicket for Shakib! Wriddhiman Saha's bails are disturbed as he gets a bottom edge. Saha falls for 7. SRH 10/2 after 2.1 overs
