KKR Defeats SRH By 7 Wickets To Enter IPL Qualifier 2 KKR Defeats SRH By 7 Wickets To Enter IPL Qualifier 2: The title holders Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) were defeated by two-time champions, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) by seven wickets via the Duckworth-Lewis method to enter Qualifier 2 of the Indian Premier League, on Thursday at the Chinnaswamy Stadium, in Bengaluru. Knight Riders had earlier produced a disciplined bowling and fielding effort to restrict Sunrisers to a modest 128 for seven before a break in play caused due to rainfall at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium.
Kolkata Knight Riders: Gautam Gambhir (C), Darren Bravo, Trent Boult, Piyush Chawla, Nathan Coulter Nile, Colin De Grandhomme, Rishi Dhawan, Sayan Ghosh, Shakib-Al-Hasan, Sheldon Jackson, Ishank Jaggi, Kuldeep Yadav, Chris Woakes, Chris Lynn, Sunil Narine, Manish Pandey, Yusuf Pathan, Ankit Rajpoot, Suryakumar Yadav, Robin Uthappa and Umesh Yadav.
"I think overall if you see, the Bengaluru wicket this year was very low scoring". Piyush removed Warner that I thought was the turning point.

Thibaut Courtois: Chelsea title win will be more special after last season
Opta have confirmed that Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has now been awarded his 11th assist of the Premier League campaign. Their fate was sealed at Stamford Bridge by goals from Chelsea trio Diego Costa, Marcos Alonso and Nemanja Matic .
Muralitharan felt his team fell 10 runs short of what they would have wanted on the board. "And they bowled really well on it", said Warner. "10 runs make a lot of difference", he said. "Thanks also to all our fans out there, with out your continued support we would not be able to play the game that we love", he wrote on Instagram alongside pictures of himself with his two daughters - Ivy Mae and Indi Rae and wife Candice Falzon.
Mumbai's batting has been remarkable this season with openers Lendl Simmons and Parthiv Patel giving them good starts and skipper Rohit Sharma, Ambati Rayadu and Kieron Pollard firing in unison. It's been quite a disappointing wicket all season. "Unfortunately, it was the rain, which you can not complain about, and you need to move on because they played better". If the top six batsmen go hard and one of them comes off then you win the game. Had we taken two or three wickets early, they would have struggled. Therefore, unfortunately this year is not our year. "Therefore, we are satisfied with our players along with our performance as well", he said. Skipper Gautam Gambhir, who is placed in the second spot in the most runs list with 486 runs, will hope to lead from the front.
The Lankan spin legend Muralitharan also said, "We also won eight matches or something, while we just lost five matches, along with this loss". "Our batsmen batted well, the bowlers, who were picked in the auction, did well as well". Adding to this, the Pandya brothers - Hardik and Krunal - have come good whenever the team has needed them. Therefore, sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. @sunrisershyd it's been a privilege to be apart of this franchise and we are sorry we couldn't get the job done this year but we tried our best. "Let's see, hopefully if we can get the same team next year - I don't know what the rules are going to be - we can once again try and win".
