IPL 2018, Kolkata Knight Riders vs Sunrisers Hyderabad, Highlights: Williamson’s innings snatched victory
Written by Abhishek Lohia

Sunrisers Hyderabad beat Kolkata Knight Riders at Eden Garden Stadium, Kolkata. Sunrisers Hyderabad hunted the two-time champions Kolkata Knight Riders, who would be looking to win back on track at home during an Indian Premier League T20 cricket clash here on Saturday. With three wins from three matches, SRH leading in the points table ahead of Chennai Super Kings on a net run rate. On the other hand, KKR  lost their second defeat who came against just after against Chennai Super Kings despite posting a 200-plus total. The game can also be seen live on the Star Sports network. The live streaming of KKR VS SRH will be available on hotstar.com. You can also follow our live commentary blog for ball-by-ball updates and analysis on Newsfolo.com

On paper, Kane Williamson-led SRH is one of the most balanced team, boasting an experienced batting-lineup and an equally compelling bowling army, a dream combination for any captain. But the visitors did not look too impressive in a prudish chase against Mumbai Indians last night before pulling off a one-wicket victory off the last ball, a first in IPL history. Leading 8-4 in head-to-head contests, KKR will fancy chances against a team who had lost by 17 runs the last time they battled at Eden Gardens in the last edition. That batting failure will give KKR some wave of hope as they will look to use their bowling stocks well this time.
