Two wickets from Lockie Ferguson helped Kolkata Knight Riders grab an exciting Super Over triumph over Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Sheik Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Sunday. The Kiwi pacer nipped out David Warner and Abdul Samad in three conveyances, leaving KKR with only three hurries to pursue.
Prior in KKR vs SRH match, KKR had the advantage with SRH requiring 18 to win off the last finished. Warner swung the force SRH’s way with a cap stunt of fours off Andre Russell. With four needed off two, Russell pulled it back, surrendering only three and extending the match to a Super Over.
Pursuing 164, Jonny Bairstow (36, 28b, 7×4) and Kane Williamson (29, 19b, 4×4, 1×6) gave SRH a flying beginning. The side traveled to 58 for no misfortune in PowerPlay, before Ferguson, playing his first match, had Williamson gotten off his first ball.
Priyam Garg, Bairstow and Manish Pandey at that point fell one after another before Pat Cummins represented Vijay Shankar. Notwithstanding, Warner’s unbeaten 33-ball 47 (5×4) guaranteed that the groups completed on a balanced.
Put in to bat (KKR vs SRH match), KKR scored only 15 off the initial three overs before Rahul Tripathi shifted gears, hitting T. Natarajan for a six and a four in the fourth finished. At the opposite end, Shubman Gill (36, 37b, 5×4) crushed the shackles with three spirit to-back limits off Basil Thampi. Be that as it may, Natarajan gave SRH the achievement, castling Tripathi. Nitish Rana (29, 20b, 3×4, 1×6) gave the innings the genuinely necessary force. Rana hit two consecutive limits off Rashid before dispatching him over long-on. Rashid sent back Gill before Vijay Shankar disposed of Rana.
The transition to advance Russell didn’t deliver profits and it was left to a venturesome 58-run fifth-wicket remain between Dinesh Karthik (29, 14b, 2×4, 2×6) and Eoin Morgan (34, 23b, 3×4, 1×6) — the two pillaged 52 off the last four overs — to give KKR an aggregate of 163. Ferguson at that point dominated.
