Kolkata Knight Riders were first to bat as they scored 187 runs for 6 wickets. The top scorers for them were Nitish Rana and Rahul Tripathi. Nitesh and Tripathi scored 80 and 53 runs respectively.
Mohammad Nabi and Rashid Khan picked two wickets each and Bhuvneshwar just got one wicket. Kolkata was halted by falls of wickets else they could have put a total close to 200 runs or even more.
Sunrisers started 2nd innings started poorly as they lost two early wickets in David Warner and Saha. But Bairstow and Pandey quickly took charge and scored quick runs for the Hyderabad team. Bairstow looked fiery as he hit Russell for six and fours but Pat Cummins took his wicket in his next over.
Watch the video of the Nabi Incident:
Nabi faced young Kolkata bowler Prasidh Krishna and on the third ball of 15th over a short ball hit Nabi’s neck as he mistimed the shot. The Umpires and fielders especially Harbhajan Singh got concerned about Mohammad Nabi.
Mohammad Nabi maybe held that in his mind as he hit the next ball out of the boundary for four. Nabi looked well after a possible neck injury as hit four on the next ball. But couldn’t sustain long, as he got out on the last ball of the same over caught by Eoin Morgan on the boundary. Nabi scored 14runs from 11 balls with 2 fours.
