IPL 2018: Kane Williamson credits 'outstanding' Hyderabad bowlers after win

IPL 2018: Kane Williamson credits 'outstanding' Hyderabad bowlers after win

Meanwhile, in the first match of the day, Delhi registered their first win in three matches as they beat Mumbai by seven wickets off the last ball of the match. The right-hander smashed an unbeaten 91 off 53 balls, a knock that included six fours and as many sixes, to help Delhi pull off a tricky chase. But Mumbai lost Rohit (18), Krunal Pandya (11) and Hardik Pandya (2) in quick succession as Delhi bowlers made a strong comeback in the death overs.

On the plus side for MI, Yadav has been among runs and his role will be a key element for the team, especially if the team loses early wickets. We knew that if we take it to the last over, we were going to win the game.

Mustafizur Rahman was left to defend 11 off the final over; Roy took 10 of those from the first two balls, but was beaten off the next three to bring it down to one from one. I told them I don't mind batting anywhere as I am flexible, so they said number 3 is the position where I'll be batting. It was the third successive loss for Mumbai and they remain without a point after three matches. He was the last wicket to fall at 187 for 7 in the final over of the innings, and that completed a disappointing finish for Mumbai Indians after a start of 102 for 0 in nine overs.

Let us have a look at the possible reasons for Mumbai Indians' slow start in this years' IPL.

24 matches each have been won by teams batting first and second from 48 games at Wankhede Stadium.

And of course their away form in the Premier League is increasingly worrying, having lost their last five on their travels. Newcastle possible XI: Dubravka, Yedlin, Lejeune, Lascelles, Dummett , Ritchie, Diame, Shelvey, Kenedy , Perez, Gayle.

For KKR, Sunil Narine picked up 2 wickets while Kuldeep Yadav, Mitchell Johnson and Piyush Chawla all getting one wicket each. "Every one of us wanted to win this game", he added.

For the hosts, opener Chris Lynn (49; 34b 7x4 1x6) was the top-scorer as skipper Dinesh Karthik laboured to a 27-ball 29 hitting two fours and a six.

Bhunvneshwar Kumar (3-26) was the pick of an impressive bowling unit on his return from injury, though Shakib and towering Australia seamer Billy Stanlake, who found real pace and carry, also impressed with figures of 2-21. The team has ensured that David Warner's absence is not really felt although they've faltered a tad bit with their batting.

A marvellous 91* saw six fours and six sixes, and one of the best innings of the tournament so far. He said "Yesterday while we were coming back to the hotel he (captain Rohit Sharma) said we would love if you open the innings as you have played a lot of cricket here and you are most experienced. We believed that we could even after taking it to the last over", Iyer said.
