IPL Eliminator, Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Kolkata Knight Riders: Wash-out in Bengaluru?

Tactically they are two of the sharpest minds in the business Tactically they are two of the sharpest minds in the business

But then it stopped, making way for a six-over chase in which Kolkata Knight Riders had to get 48. Of the 72 balls that Knight Riders' three quicks sent down, 53 were pitched either short or short of a good length, with constant pace variations thrown in. But with Kumar spearheading the bowling attack for Sunrisers, the team from Kolkata will have a mountain to climb! They also allow for a later cut-off time for play to begin in the playoffs than in the league games. It's all about destiny. This season, the league match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Sunrisers Hyderabad was cancelled after surprise showers lashed the city of Bengaluru. The ground where Royal Challengers almost chased down 209 to beat Sunrisers in the final previous year was now throwing up vastly different conditions.

"We just wanted to try something different by batting first today and it did not pay off. Batting second was much easier, but 138 is too less".

Knight Riders could consider opening the bowling with Sunil Narine. The short ball occasionally sat up to be hit - the pull was a productive shot for David Warner and Kane Williamson during a second-wicket stand of 50 in 46 balls - but short of good length proved nearly impossible to hit: 18 balls, eight runs conceded. It was only when the bowlers pitched short did they have any leeway.

Vijay Shankar flickered briefly to score 22 off 17, but there was little else of note from the middle and lower order as Sunrisers only managed 53 in their last 49 balls.

"We have to come to the ground in a positive frame of mind thinking that there will be 40 overs of play".

A win for KKR and they would have climbed to second place in the IPL standings but the eventual result meant they finished fourth. Had we taken two or three wickets early, they would have struggled.

Today Analysts Focus on Veeva Systems Inc. (VEEV), Mastercard Incorporated (MA)
The rating was maintained by Deutsche Bank with "Hold" on Friday, May 27. 1,820,329 shares of the company were exchanged. In other news, SVP Jonathan Faddis sold 888 shares of the company's stock in a transaction dated Friday, March 3rd.

So, because the bowlers are expected to dominate, this Qualifier 2 will come down to the batting - whichever team adapts quicker and finds a way to score quick runs even when the ball isn't coming on will meet RPS in the final. "It's unfortunate. They won the toss and so they deserved to win".

Muralitharan chose not to focus on the playing conditions.

It has been a tournament to remember for both of them, and they would like to emulate it one more time in the do-or-die tie. The reason for this is that there is no reserve day allotted for the qualifiers.

"We all prefer 20 overs". We didn't expect it to rain.

Given they have confidence, impetus and a core of players who know what it takes to win this competition-Gambhir, Uthappa, Narine and Pathan were all champions with Kolkata in 2014-they will have just enough to get through this one. Overall we are satisfied with the performance - eight wins and five losses before this. It doesn't always go your way.
