IPL-2018: KKR's Nagarkoti replaced by Prasidh

IPL-2018: KKR's Nagarkoti replaced by Prasidh

R Vinay Kumar's run leak may have been a concern for the Kolkata Knight Riders but skipper Dinesh Karthik is confident that he has enough ammunition in his armoury in terms of fast bowling talent as they take on Sunrisers Hyderabad in the next IPL encounter, in Kolkata on Saturday. It was skipper Kane Williamson, who held their innings together with a 44-ball 50. However, they will need their middle-order consisting of Manish Pandey, Yusuf Pathan and Shakib Al Hasan to put up a much better show.

The wicket straight after the rain break was a bonus and SRH did not look back after that.

KKR captain Dinesh Karthik was not happy with his batsman.

Returning to action after a one-match injury lay-off, Bhuvneshwar once again shone at the death, claiming 3/26 as KKR's rejigged batting order looked in a complete disarray. It is uncertain whether the purple cap holder from the last two editions will make it for this game, but Sandeep Sharma adequately covered for Kumar.

Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) vs Delhi Daredevils (DD), Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018 will be played at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata. The former has taken two wickets in each match while maintaining a low economy, while the latter has gone through his overs in miserly fashion as well.

Manchester City win the title: How pundits, managers, players reacted
Manchester City ended their three-match losing run with a convincing win over Tottenham at Wembley Stadium. City stars were delighted with the win and took to social media to celebrate with their fans.

Saha hit three fours in third over bowled by Mitchell Johnson to get 16 runs from that over. Having shielded Narine from some pretty good new ball bowlers, he bizarrely sent in the West Indian at No 4 shortly after the powerplay and even had Shubman Gill down at No 7, below Russell. Conceding just a single in the first over of the game, he quickly gave Sunrisers the breakthrough after Lynn smashed Stanlake for three fours in the previous over.

Sunrisers Hyderabad needs 139 runs to win from 20 Overs.

Not quite in his elements today, Rashid could not pick up a wicket but ensured he wasn't taken to the cleaners in four decent overs.

Shami has turned out in all the three matches for DD and a team official said there's no question of his availability as it remains to be seen where there's also a courtroom battle in the offing.
