IPL 2018: Struggling KKR Look To Get Together Against Buoyant Delhi Daredevils

One of the finds of the India's U-19 World Cup triumph, Nagarkoti sustained the injury before the tournament but the announcement came only today as KKR lost a second pacer this season after Australian spearhead Mitchell Starc. Bhuvneshwar Kumar took three wickets - Dinesh Karthik (29 runs off 27 balls), Robin Uthappa (3 runs off 8 balls) and Shubhman Gill (3 runs off 9 balls) to restrict KKR to 138/8 in 20 overs.

But the match turned on its head after the first wicket fell in the form of Saha in the fourth over. Should they be asked to bat first at Kolkata, it would completely change the equation they are used to. Sunrisers Hyderabad will be for the first time playing away from their home crowds, and with almost 40,000 screaming Kolkatta fans they will have to be psychologically prepared.

In contrast, Hyderabad' attack has a settled look, and even the absence of the wily Bhuvneshwar Kumar was taken in stride against Mumbai on Thursday. Having tonked Rashid for a four and a six, Rana gifted his wicket with a ribbon when he slashed Billy Stanlake to Pandey at point. Things are surely working in SRH's favor as of now. Any/all of the five bowlers at Williamson's disposal are worthy picks, while the rest of the batting is a risk. Lynn looked in good touch against CSK before he was undone by Jadeja, and he will have to play a key role if KKR are to win against this bowling lineup.

Shami has turned out in all the three matches for DD and a team official said there's no question of his availability as it remains to be seen where there's also a courtroom battle in the offing. Singh and Kumar are both major Achilles heels in the team. Including the last match between the two.

Russia's U.S. ambassador warns of consequences for Syria strikes
The Kremlin on Saturday condemned Western air strikes on Syria where its armed forces are backing President Bashar al-Assad. "Again, we are being threatened".

All-rounder Shakib kept the squeeze on, ending the promoted Sunil Narine's short and scratchy innings, and claiming the big wicket of Lynn with a superb one-handed grab off his own bowling.

Delhi have issues to address especially in their bowling department which has failed to deliver in each of the three games played so far.

One crucial success factor for Hyderabad has been the balling side.
