Kolkata’s Nail-biting Win against Sunrisers: SRH Vs KKR Yesterday Match Hightlight

KKR won the match by 5 runs and kept themselves alive in this tournament. SRH’s struggle continues with their finishing setup. It was SRH’s game but KKR’s disciplined bowling brought them into the match again and stylishly won this match. KKR won the toss and elected to bat first. They didn’t get a good start, which they were expecting, and lost three wickets in power plays. However, Nitish Rana and Rinku Singh played an amazing knock. Andre Russell also contributed well to finish the innings. They brought the score to 171 runs in 20 overs. 

On the other hand, SRH got a good start in the second inning but they also lost three wickets in power plays. But then Markram and Klassen played with a positive approach and kept the score flowing. They just needed 38 runs off 30 balls, which was easy to achieve when you have a top-quality batsman on the crease. 

But later on, KKR made a great comeback and picked the important wickets of Markram and Klassen. The backbone of the team was broken when both of them were gone. Then Abdul Samad tried his best with fiery fours but couldn’t let his team win. In the end, SRH lost this match by just 5 runs and again missed the opportunity to claim 2 important points. 

It was really a close encounter in which Nitish Rana’s KKR won the battle against SRH and kept themselves alive in this tournament. Varun Chakravarthy did a great job by defending 9 runs in the final over.
