He took four for 30 runs in four overs. In the last over Hyderabad have four wickets. Goswami (35) was run out on Kuldeep Yadav’s bowling.
Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kolkata Knight Riders are the other important matches of the day. Hyderabad captain Ken Williamson won the toss and decided to bat first. Kolkata needs a win in today’s match to determine the entry into the Indian Premier League (IPL). Even if Kolkata is defeated, the hopes of their playoffs will not end. He has 14 points and Runagate is not too bad.
Hyderabad has already won 9 wins out of 13 matches with the top spot in the qualifying position. Hyderabad defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore by 14 runs in the last game. Still, it is not easy for Calcutta to boast of the highest number of 18 points on the account.
Two-time champions Kolkata are third in the points table. He has scored 14 points from 13 matches with 7 wins. Therefore, this victory will be their determination of the final round. Hyderabad will be trying to educate poor performers against Bengaluru. Fast bowler Basil Thimphu scored 70 runs in four overs. He became the most expensive bowler in the history of IPL. He broke the previous record of Ishant Sharma. Therefore, it is very difficult to find a place in the Thampley squad.
