Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) were consigned to a second defeat of the IPL as they were fairly comfortably beaten by Sunrisers Hyderabad. Chris Lynn top scored with 49 but, other than Nitish Rana (18) and Dinesh Karthik (29), no KKR player could get into double figures as their batsmen struggled to have an impact. Sunil Narine once again proved to be the pick of the bowlers ending with figures of 4.0-17-2 with an economy rate of just 4.25. In truth though, much like Lynn, Narine was not given enough support to ever really see KKR threaten to win the match. Knight Riders’ second loss in three means they currently sit in fifth in the table with two points, meaning they are four behind Sunrisers Hyderabad at the top. While their form is not yet terminal, they need to turn things around soon, although if their last game is anything to go by, then they will struggle.

Delhi Daredevils (DD) on the other hand are fresh off the back of their first win, and what a win it was. Reigning champions Mumbai Indians set DD an imposing target of 195 to win, but this proved to be a chance for Jason Roy (91 not out) to thump an impressive score that featured six 6’s to lead his team to the points. Trent Boult once again got in on the action with the ball as he gave Mumbai problems, and he is looking like a very dangerous proposition in the IPL this year. Of course, DD should not get carried away as it is only their first win, but a victory over the reigning champions should be one they can utilise going forward as they look to climb up the table. 

Three things to keep in mind:

Jason Roy looked like a monster at the crease in DD’s last game. It was the English-openers first IPL innings of the season and he has already fired himself up to 16th in the runs scoring charts despite playing two innings less than those around him. His blend of power and intelligent shot placement make him a nightmare to play against, and he sent a fair few bowlers flying into the stands on the full.

Trent Boult has picked up four wickets this season and he looks like a real handful. Rahul Tewatia and Dan Christian have three each for the Daredevils, while for KKR, Sunil Narine (four wickets) and Piyush Chawla (three wickets) means this could be a very interesting bowling contest. 

It is the battle of two of the biggest hitters in the IPL this season. Andre Russell of KKR smashed a six that went 105.00 metres, while DD’s Jason Roy hit a six that went 96.00 metres. There could be fireworks in this one if either gets themselves in then.
