In the second half, KKR's spinners strangled the visitors' batsmen by choking the runs and helped build the pressure; none of the SRH batsmen made it past 26. However, DD have put up impressive all-round performances so far in the journey and could prove to be the hurdle that jolts the successful run for the knights from Kolkata.
After a win and a loss, the two-time former champions began their campaign at home with an eight-wicket thrashing of Kings XI Punjab with 21 balls to spare last night. Though KKR were triumphant, hanging the team's batting on Narine may not be a wise option to move forward with in the tournament.
For KKR the task will be cut out and that will be not to give away wickets at regular intervals and especially during the beginning of the innings.
Pandey had a life when Ohja failed to stump Bipul Sharma and Uthappa hit another three sixes in a stand of 77 that ended when Ben Cutting got rid of the keeper, who was given out caught behind down the leg side two overs earlier but the third umpire ruled there was no contact with bat or pad. This is their first defeat of the season and they would look to come back on track in their next game. However, the speedsters need to be more economical.
"Narine can hit a big ball, we have a long batting line-up, and so we sent Sunil in at the top".
