Suryakumar Yadav stunned Hardik Pandya with a 99-meter six:
After losing the opener cheaply, Suryakumar Yadav joined his skipper and built an important partnership. He showed his golden form from the very first delivery he has faced.
The right-handed batsman registered his fifty before getting dismissed on 56. During his knock, he has smashed a massive six of 99m that went out of the stadium.
The batsman himself enjoyed the shot but his teammate Hardik Pandya could not believe what he has done. Soon he lost his wicket after reaching the fifty mark.
Even though they set a brilliant platform for the middle-order, the players like Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya and Kieron Pollard flopped badly. With no support from the middle-order, they could score just 152 runs and lost all their wickets.
Kolkata's Andre Russell was the pick of the bowler from his team as he picked a fifer from just 2 overs. While chasing a moderate target, the openers of KKR has been doing a great job.
