Roy rides Delhi home, Hyderbad beats Kolkata in IPL

Delhi Daredevils player Jason Roy bats against Mumbai Indians during VIVO IPL cricket T20 match in Mumbai, India, on Saturday, April 14, 2018.

Kolkata: Lauding his spinners for a spirited bowling performance, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) captain Dinesh Karthik urged his seamers to learn the knuckleball from Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), whose bowlers set up a five-wicket win against his team here on Saturday.

Black Caps skipper Kane Williamson has batted Sunrisers Hyderabad to the top of the Indian Premier League (IPL), grinding out a match-winning 50 against Kolkata Knight Riders. Mumbai's Hardik Pandya had no answer for the rampaging-Brit, the allrounder leaking 32 runs from his two overs and giving Roy the flawless start to capitalise on.

Gill looked a fish out of water, huffing and puffing to three runs of nine balls before Bhuvneshwar Kumar got his back while Mavi was hit for 10 runs in his only over.

On opening the innings Yadav said it was decided on Friday.

Delhi came back strongly when legspinner Rahul Tewatia (2-36) dismissed both openers in successive overs. Mumbai Indians's new spin sensation Mayank Markande was taken for 42 in three overs, Sri Lankan mystery tweaker Akila Dananjaya disappeared for 47 in four, and Hardik Pandya's two overs cost 32 runs.

Roy hit Mustafizur Rahman's first two deliveries for a four and a six to tie the score, but then missed connecting the next three balls to reduce the equation to one needed off the last ball. Glenn Maxwell made a quick-fire 13 from six deliveries, but a brilliant outfield catch by Hardik Pandya got the better of the Aussie allrounder.

"We were 10-15 runs short but still 180-plus is a good score on any ground", Suryakumar said. "The comeback was superb by the bowlers", said Iyer who remained unbeaten on 27 with Roy till the end.

Kolkata was 52-1 in seven overs when rain stopped play for an hour.

They bowled brilliantly to restrict KKR to just 138 runs and did not allow the latter's batting to get any momentum. "We'll have to turn around quickly".

Although Narine returned and removed Hyderabad openers inside the first six overs of the batting powerplay, Williamson's half century off 44 balls took his team to 139-5 with an over to spare. SRH's bowling was top class with their ace medium pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar bagging 3 key wickets along with Billy Stanlake and Shakib Al Hasan taking 2 wickets each. "Nice to go over the line in this city".
