Kolkata Knight Riders Innings Highlights:

Chasing a mammoth target of 229, it was always going to be difficult for KKR to maintain a run-rate of 11 plus per over. But skipper Rana (75 off 41 balls) did launch into SRH bowlers with half a dozen sixes and had ‘Man of the Moment’ Rinku Singh (58 not out off 31 balls) for the company in their 69-run stand off only 6.2 overs.

This was after KKR were reduced to 96/5 within first 10 overs. Once T Natarajan got rid of Rana, it was left to Rinku to pull off yet another heist as 57 were needed off last three overs.

But Bhuvneshwar Kumar (1/29 in 4 overs) gave 10 in the 18th over while Natarajan (1/54 in 4 overs) went for 16 in the penultimate over.

With Rinku on strike and 32 needed off last over, Umran Malik (1/36 in 2 overs) came back well to dismiss Shardul Thakur with the first delivery and effectively sealing the game. The southpaw was stranded at the other end for first two deliveries. Rinku face four balls but Umran bowled fast and full to keep him under check with only eight runs being conceded.

 

Sunrisers Hyderabad Innings Highlights:

England’s new batting sensation Harry Brook, finally managed to crack the IPL code in style. He smashed the season’s first century to help Sunrisers Hyderabad pile up a mammoth 228/4 against Kolkata Knight Riders.

Bought by SRH for a whopping Rs 13.25 crore, Brook had managed only 29 in first three games. But he finally found his rhythm with a 55-ball-100 as he smashed 12 fours and three sixes.

Having got a reprieve on 45, when he was dropped by rookie leg-spinner Suyash Sharma an easy chance off his own bowling, Englishman got to his 50 off 32 balls.

Brook also overturned a caught-behind decision off Lockie Ferguson when on 61. As a result, he hammered the Kiwi fiery pacer in the same over five fours to bring up his first century in IPL.

Skipper Aiden Markram also played an impactful innings in the middle. He raced to a 26-ball fifty as he stitched a 72-run stand off 47 balls with Brook. After Markram’s departure, young left-handed batter Abhishek Sharma (32 off 17) gave a fine support as the duo also added 72 runs (33 balls) to pile on KKR’s misery.

Heinrich Klaasen then played a cameo of 16 not out in six balls as SRH dished out a superlative batting display after KKR opted to bowl.

Barring Caribbeans, Sunil Narine (4-0-28-0) and Andre Russell (2.1-0-22-3) who pulled a muscle and could not complete his overs, none of the KKR bowlers failed to impress.

Harry Brook finally shines

The day fully belonged to the English batter, who carried his bat replicating his success in Pakistan Super League (PSL). He had scored 264 runs for Lahore Qalandars in 8 innings, which included a century, at a strike rate of 171.4 in 2022 edition.

Brook also has eye-popping numbers in Tests and has scored 809 runs with four centuries and three fifties in 10 innings.
