Chasing a mammoth 181, Parthiv Patel smashed Lakshmipathy Balaji for a six in the third over and followed it up with a boundary. But the KKR bowlers recovered to bowl tight lines, not allowing the visitors to score more than 39 runs in the power play. With the pressure mounting, Patel (27) went for a wild pull shot only to have Kallis peg back his stump. Cameron White got a move on with consecutive boundaries off Rajat Bhatia before Kallis struck again having White (34) caught brilliantly at the ropes by Yusuf Pathan.
Kumar Sangakara (2) fell soon after caught by Manoj Tiwary off Bhatia. Thisara Perera launched Sunil Narine for a huge six and followed it with a boundary. Tiwary then caught Dwaraka Ravi Teja (10) off Narine to further reduce SRH. Sachithra Senanayake picked his first IPL wicket bowling Ashish Reddy (4). SRH fell short by 48 runs.
Earlier KKR won the toss and chose to bat. Manvinder Bisla and Gambhir started positively dispatching three boundaries off Hanuma Vihari's 2nd over. Bisla continued his assault smashing consecutive boundaries off Perera. Bisla (28) finally fell caught at deep mid-wicket off Karan Sharma. Gambhir hit the first six sending Karan Sharma into the crowd in the 10th over. At the halfway stage KKR were at 76 for 1. Gambhir bought up his 18th IPL fifty in the 12th over with a boundary through third man.
Ashish Reddy got the much needed breakthrough for SRH bowling Gambhir. KKR stepped on the gas, with Morgan hitting Amit Mishra for a six and a four in the 16th over. Kallis joined the party the next over stroking Ishant Sharma for two consecutive boundaries in the off-side. Perera's 18th over was taken apart by Morgan as he plundered 22 runs from it. Morgan was run out by Dale Steyn after hitting the South African for a massive six. KKR eventually finished at 180 for 4 from their 20 overs.
Man-of-the-Match: Gautam Gambhir
Brief Scores: Kolkata Knight Riders 180 for 4 (Gautam Gambhir 53; Karan Sharma 1-13) defeat Sunrisers Hyderabad 132 for 7 (Thisara Perera 36; Jaques Kallis 3-13) by 48 runs.
The win was another two points for the Mumbai Indians, who on the day, in support of the ‘Education For All’ programme, had 11,000 children inside the stadium, dedicated their victory to the under privileged kids.
Chasing 184, PWI got off to a horrible start as Aaron Finch (0) was bowled first ball by Johnson. Ross Taylor (4) was run out by Ambati Rayudu and it only got worse as Johnson swung the ball sharply to send Uthappa's (7) off-stump cart-wheeling to reduce PWI to 13 for 3.
Tirumalasetti Suman (23) opened his account with two glorious boundaries through the point region. He fell trying to clear the fence caught by Kieron Pollard off Harbhajan Singh.
Yuvraj Singh (24) hit the first six of the PWI innings depositing Pollard behind square leg in the 8th over. Just as he was looking good, he was dismissed, caught beautifully by Rishi Dhawan. PWI lost their sixth wicket as Angelo Mathews (19) fell in pursuit of runs to Pragyan Ojha.
Mitchell Marsh kept the fight going hitting a few sixes including a monster 99 meter hit off Johnson. Lasith Malinga dismissed Abhishek Nayar (6) and Marsh's (38) wicket off Johnson, caught brilliantly by Dhawan was the last nail in the coffin for PWI. They eventually finished at 142 for 8.
Earlier MI opted to bat and openers Ricky Ponting and Sachin Tendulkar started positively. Ponting hit Bhuvneshwar Kumar for two boundaries before Tendulkar went after Ashok Dinda smashing four successive boundaries. Tendulkar was put down by Yuvraj Singh off Rahul Sharma at mid-on and the Master responded by depositing the next ball over the ropes. Yuvraj Singh soon made amends dismissing Ponting (13) caught at point. Aaron Finch got PWI their second wicket having Tendulkar (44) caught by Marsh.
Dinesh Karthik stroked Yuvraj Singh for consecutive boundaries in the 12th over before pulling Angelo Mathews for a six the next over. Mitchell Marsh trapped the in-form Karthik (41) leg before to provide his team another timely wicket. Dinda's day got worse as Rohit Sharma (62*) slammed him for consecutive sixes, taking 19 runs off the 17th over. Marsh's next over went for 21 runs as Sharma and Pollard (19*) pressed their foot on the pedal. Some more lusty blows by Sharma in the last over propelled MI to 183 for 3 from their 20 overs.
