Kolkata Knight Riders defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad by 10 runs in the third match of IPL 2021 played at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.
Hyderabad captain David Warner is very disappointed with the defeat against KKR in a thrilling match. After the match, he admitted that his team’s bowling was too weak, causing them to lose.
After the match, Warner said, “We could not implement our plan properly in bowling, while Manish Pandey and Jonny Bairstow helped after losing two wickets early in the batting, that was amazing.
I think If you bowl over the pitch then you will definitely get hit. The same thing is not seen from the Kolkata bowlers. They bowled at a good height, which helped them a lot. “
However, Warner also praised Manish Pandey and Jonny Bairstow. “The way we lost two wickets in the beginning after that Jonny and Manish came back which was good. Looking at the batting, we got a good rhythm in the tournament, but there are still many matches to play,” he said.
KKR had scored 187 runs for six wickets in 20 overs, playing first in this match. In response, the Sunrisers Hyderabad team could score 177 runs in the scheduled overs.
Nitish Rana and Rahul Tripathi were the heroes of this victory of Kolkata. These two scored a 93-runs partnership for the second wicket. Tripathi scored 53 runs in 29 balls. During this time, five fours and two sixes came out of his bat. At the same time, Nitish Rana played an explosive inning of 80 runs in 56 balls. In his innings, Rana hit 9 fours and four sixes.
