Kane Williamson and Jonny Bairstow got SunRisers Hyderabad off to a flying start, adding 57/0 in the Powerplay. However, Lockie Ferguson, playing his first game of the season, picked two wickets in quick succession to pull things back for KKR. He got rid of Williamson on his very first ball and then cleaned up Priyam Garg to hand KKR double blow. Varun Chakravarthy dismissed Bairstow to push SRH further on the backfoot. Ferguson got his third wicket when he clean bowled Manish Pandey with a 148kph yorker. Earlier, KKR’s former skipper Dinesh Karthik (29* off 14) and current captain Eoin Morgan (34 off 23) stitched a crucial partnership that helped them reach a competitive total of 163/5 against SunRisers Hyderabad in Abu Dhabi on Sunday. Morgan got out on  the final ball of the innings but the duo had done their job, adding 58 runs for the fifth wicket. Earlier, KKR openers Shubman Gill and Rahul Tripathi gave their side a solid start after SRH skipper David Warner opted to bowl after winning the toss. T Natarajan cleaned up Rahul Tripathi on the last ball of the Powerplay to give SRH first breakthrough. Nitish Rana took charge to SRH strike bowler Rashid Khan, smashing him for a couple of boundaries. The leg-spinner came back strongly and broke the partnership removing Gill in his next over, thanks to a sensational catch taken by Priyam Garg in the deep. Vijay Shankar got rid of Rana in the next over to push KKR on the backfoot. Andre Russell’s poor form with the bat in IPL 2020 continued as his miscued shot off Natarajan went straight into the hands of deep midwicket fielder. (LSCORECARD)
