Mumbai: Sunrisers Hyderabad beat Kolkata Knight Riders by seven wickets in an IPL match on Friday on the back of aggressive innings from Rahul Tripathi and Aiden Markram and brilliant performances by fast bowlers. For Sunrisers, fast bowler Marco Janssen took 1 for 26, T Natarajan took 3 for 37, Bhuvneshwar Kumar took 1 for 37 and Umran Malik took 2 for 27. He restricted KKR to 175 for eight. In reply, Tripathi scored 71 off 37 balls and Markram scored an unbeaten 68 off 36 balls to give Sunrisers their third consecutive win. Sunrisers won the match with 13 balls to spare. Now they have three wins in five matches while this was the third loss for KKR in six matches.

Playing against his former team, Tripathi hit Varun Chakraborty for a four and two consecutive sixes in the eighth over. He completed his first half-century of this season in just 21 balls. At the same time, Markram hit six fours and four sixes in his innings, which included two sixes and a four in the last over to Pat Cummins. Earlier, Andre Russell and Nitish Rana took Kolkata Knight Riders out of the initial crisis to 175 for eight. KKR lost the wickets of three top-order batsmen in the powerplay overs itself but after that Rana scored 54 off 36 balls and Russell scored 49 not out off 25 balls to give a good score to the team.

Justifying his decision to bowl first, South Africa’s Jansen made full use of bounce and swing to cheaply dismiss Aaron Finch (7). Natarajan then took two wickets in the fifth over. He first sent off Venkatesh Iyer (six) and then took the wicket of Sunil Narine (six). KKR’s score at this time was 31 runs for three wickets.

After this Sunrisers captain Kane Williamson handed the ball to the spinner but Jagdisha did not appear in proper form. Malik took the precious wicket of KKR captain Shreyas Iyer (28) in the tenth over and also sent Sheldon Jackson (7) to the pavilion in the same over.

Rana continued to score runs from the other end and hit six fours and two sixes in his innings. He shared a 39-run partnership with both Iyer and Russell. He fell victim to Natarajan in the 18th over. Russell hit four fours and four sixes in his lucrative innings, which included two sixes in the last over. KKR scored 55 runs in the last five overs.
