IPL 2016: Moises Henriques, Yuvraj Singh shine as Sunrisers eliminate Kolkata Knight Riders

first_imgSunrisers Hyderabad eliminated the two-time champions Kolkata Knight Riders out of the Indian Premier League 2016 after registering a 22-run win at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in New Delhi on Wednesday. (Match Highlights | Scorecard)After putting on 162 for eight, riding on Yuvraj Singh’s 30-ball 44, Sunrisers came up with a fine bowling performance and accurate catching to restrict KKR to 140 for eight to progress to the Qualifier 2 stage for the first time since making their debut in 2013.SRH FACE GUJARAT IN QUALIFIER 2Sunrsiers will now take on the losers of the Qualifier 1, Gujarat Lions on Friday for their maiden entry into the summit clash of the tournament.Chasing the target, KKR did not have the best of starts as they lost Robin Uthappa (11) early, caught by Moises Henriques at short extra cover off left-arm pacer Barinder Sran (1/29) in the second over.YUVRAJ BRILLIANCEIn-form KKR captain Gautam Gambhir (28) and Colin Munro (16) then stitched a 38-run partnership before Yuvraj brilliance on the field led to the dismissal of the latter.Yuvraj caught Munro short of the crease with a direct hit from the point with just one stump to aim at as KKR slumped to 53 for two after seven overs.To make matters worse for KKR, Gambhir returned to the pavilion an over later while going for a big shot only to miscue it to substitute fielder V Shankar at long-on off Ben Cutting.PANDEY, SURYAKUMAR FIGHTBACKManish Pandey (36) and Suryakumar Yadav (23) then put on 46-runs for the fifth wicket to keep KKR in the hunt. Both Pandey and Yadav played sensibly by rotating the strike and struck fours and sixes when bad deliveries came their way.advertisementWith KKR needing 53 off the last five overs, the ever-climbing asking rate took a toll on Yadav as he departed in search of a big shot, caught by a running Shikhar Dhawan at midwicket boundary off Henriques (2/17).But KKR’s hopes were finally dashed when their top-scorer Pandey holed out at the long-on boundary off Bhuvneshwar Kumar (3/19).KULDEEP YADAV SHINESEarlier, young spinner Kuldeep Yadav scalped three wickets as Kolkata Knight Riders produced a fine bowling performance to restrict Hyderabad to a manageable total.Left-arm chinaman bowler Kuldeep returned with figures of three for 35 to deny Sunrisers a huge total and was ably supported by Morne Morkel (2/31) and Jason Holder (2/33).Sunrisers were dealt a big blow when Shikhar Dhawan departed in the last ball of the second over.Dhawan started on a bright note and struck Morkel for back-to-back boundaries before perishing in search of one too many as the South African pacer went through his defence.Warner and Moises Henriques then stitched a fine 59-run stand for the second wicket that came off 46 balls to stabilize Sunrisers innings before Kuldeep scalped two wickets in consecutive balls to derail the Hyderabad outfit.Brief Scores:Sunrisers Hyderabad: 162 for 8 in 20 overs. (Yuvraj Singh 44, Moises Henriques 31; K Yadav 3/35, M Morkel 2/31).Kolkata Knight Riders: 140 for 8 in 20 overs.(Manish Pandey 36, Gautam Gambhir 28; Bhuvneshwar Kumar 3/19, Moises Henriques 2/17).(With PTI inputs)last_img read more
