Highlights and Match Summary for SRH vs KKR 2021 – Match 3 seen the two overseas captains take on each other, with David Warner’s Sunrisers Hyderabad taking on Eoin Morgan’s Kolkata Knight Riders at Chennai.
A rare defeat at the coin toss for Eoin Morgan was followed by a win for his team.
Put into bat first, KKR managed a decent 187/6, thanks in the main to Nitish Rana’s 80 from 56 balls.
Against a bowling attack consisting of Rashid Khan and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, 187 was a pretty decent effort. After his heroics against England, Kumar would have been disappointed with his 1/45 from his 4 Overs.
When it was their turn to bat, SRH got off to a poor start. The early losses of David Warner (3) and Wriddhiman Saha (7) at the top of the innings left SRH at 10/2, and with a mountain to climb.
Half centuries from Jonny Bairstow (55) and Manish Pandey (61no) got Sunrisers Hyderabad back in the game, but they still fell short. Eventually losing by 10 runs.
