Ian Morgan’s Kolkata Knight Riders and David Warner’s Sunrisers Hyderabad faced off in the third match of the IPL on Sunday. These two teams are very strong in the IPL this time, so it is needless to say that the fight will be quite fierce. Kolkata Knight Riders beat Sunrisers Hyderabad by 10 runs in an important match and picked up two valuable points at home.
Batting first in this match, Kolkata Knight Riders made 181 runs at the end of the allotted 20 overs. Nitish Rana played a great performance for Kolkata with the bat, Rana played an innings of 80 runs off 54 balls. Besides, Rahul Tripathi’s innings of 54 off 29 balls came from the bat. In reply, Hyderabad ended the innings with just 177 runs.
Cricket experts believe that a wrong decision by David Warner in this match led to the loss of Hyderabad. Manish Pandey and Johnny Bairstow made great innings on this day but Mohammad Nabi was named to bat for Hyderabad after Bairstow was dismissed. And Nabi’s coming to bat so high is believed to be the reason for Hyderabad’s loss. David Warner made a big mistake by sending Nabi to bat instead of sending Vijay Shankar or Abdul Samad to bat instead of Mohammad Nabi.
