IPL-2018: KKR's Nagarkoti replaced by Prasidh

A Kane Willamson half-century and an excellent performance in the field helped Sunrisers Hyderabad maintain their ideal Indian Premier League record with a five-wicket win over Kolkata Knight Riders. Thereafter, captain Kane Williamson and Shakib-al Hasan scripted a 59-run stand for the fourth wicket that helped complete the job for the Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Chris Lynn, Dinesh Karthik (c), Robin Uthappa, Mitchell Johnson, Piyush Chawla, Kuldeep Yadav, Shubman Gill, Ishank Jaggi, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Nitish Rana, Vinay Kumar, Apoorv Wankhade, Rinku Singh, Shivam Mavi, Cameron Delport, Javon Searles, Tom Curran.

Even, Shakib Al Hasan took a brilliant catch of his own bowling to dismiss Lynn and deny the Aussie his 50. Sunrisers Hyderabad will be for the first time playing away from their home crowds, and with almost 40,000 screaming Kolkatta fans they will have to be psychologically prepared. Vinay Kumar, who has been expensive in both the matches is most likely to make way. Eventually, KKR never looked congruent after the rain break as they could only muster a target 139. Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who missed SRH's last game, returned figures of 3/26. Siddharth Kaul and Rashid Khan have also been fantastic. The 2018 U-19 World Cup victor will be replaced by Karnataka fast bowler Prasidh Krishna.

An integral part of KKR's twin-IPL winning campaigns, Shakib became the thorn against his former team and young Australian pacer Stanlake gave him a fine support.

Rana hit Stanlake firmly just wide of Pandey, who showed awesome reaction to grab it on the second attempt and give SRH the breakthrough in four balls after play resumed. He failed to attack in the second innings as well and let Sunrisers run away with the game.

Sunrisers Hyderabad defeated Kolkata Knight Riders in a fairly one-sided affair at the Eden Gardens on Saturday. Both teams will want to bowl first, and whoever does will probably win the match.
