Rashid Khan’s one-man show:

Winning the toss, KKR picked to bowl first. SRH began off great yet lost wickets at regular interims. With both their star batsmen – Dhawan and Williamson getting out quickly, the group was in a bad position. Be that as it may, Rashid Khan acted the hero with a flawless thump. His heroics helped his side post a par score.

Pursuing SRH’s 174, KKR got off to a splendid begin. Narine and Lynn didn’t sit idle and began crushing the ball appropriate from the first over. In spite of beginning off well, KKR fell in a matter of moments particularly after Rashid Khan assumed control over the duties. Overall, KKR missed the mark regarding SRH’s target by 15 runs and in this way are out of the competition.
