Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) cruised to a 7-wicket win over Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) on Saturday (September 26) on matchday eight of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020, thanks to a match-winning knock from Shubman Gill.
Earlier in the day, SRH skipper David Warner won the toss and welcomed KKR to bowl first.
The Hyderabad side got off to a terrible start after they lost both their openers.
Pat Cummins bowled a terrific spell early on to dismiss Jonny Bairstow (5) inside the powerplay.
Warner and Manish Pandey then tried to form a partnership for SRH but also did not last for too long as Varun Chakravarthy’s spin bowling helped KKR find a breakthrough.
Chakravarthy’s toused up delivery was misjudged by Warner (36) who ended up giving away an easy catch to the bowler.
However, Pandey then took over the charge and propelled SRH towards a defendable total.
