Williamson plays captain's knock in Sunrisers win

Prasidh Krishna

Kolkata: Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) skipper Kane Williamson won the toss and elected to field against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in their Indian Premier League match here on Saturday. In OVER 3.1 Narine striked off the first ball to dismiss Saha for 24.

Kolkata spinners - Sunil Narine, Piyush Chawla and Kuldeep Yadav - were turning the heat on Hyderabad by claiming two wickets in four overs and conceding just 13 runs.

Shakib then got Chris Lynn on 49, taking a brilliant one-handed catch after getting Lynn to hurry his shot.

It seems that Wriddhiman Saha will be the opening partner for Shikhar Dhawan for this season. There was a passage in KKR's innings when Lynn and Narine had little idea where the ball was going once it hit their bats.

After 10.2 overs SRH 66/3.

The ball popped out of Pandey's hands but he grabbed it with both hands before he hit the ground to complete a brilliant effort that sent Rana back to the pavilion. He averages only 25.11 against KKR - the least amongst the seven opponent teams.

The 22-year-old Prasidh has played 23 matches so far since 2015, three in the T20 format but his record in the 50-overs format has been impressive. The run rate should not be a problem for the Hyderabad batsmen. They take on Kings XI Punjab next in Mohali on April 19, while KKR will play Delhi Daredevils at home on April 16.

Looks like a good surface.

Sunrisers meanwhile welcomed back India pace spearhead Bhuvneshwar Kumar in place of Sandeep Sharma.

The fact that the Sunrisers used just five bowlers highlights the clinical nature of the bowling performance that restricted the Knight Riders to 138 for 8 in their 20 overs. "We have good power-hitters, and a good mix overall".

Having failed to defend a tall 203, courtesy some tactical blunders and R Vinay Kumar's profligacy at the death, KKR would look to tighten their bowling attack and veteran pacer Mitchell Johnson is all set to return as indicated by bowling coach Heath Streak on Thursday.
