IPL 2018, KKR vs SRH: Three things that you might have missed
Match 10 of IPL 2018 ended with a relatively one-sided affair which saw Sunrisers Hyderabad pulling off their first win at the Eden Gardens.
KKR spinners made the target little difficult for them but thanks to Yusuf Pathan’s cameo and a calming half-century from Kane Williamson, they chased the target with an over to spare.
Sportskeeda takes a look at the three unnoticed things from the match which had a considerable impact on the end result.
#1 Pandey’s stunning catches
Sunrisers Hyderabad is one the few T20 sides in the world who emphasise on bowling to win the matches as compared to batting glitz.
More often than not, it was complimented by fielders who back their plans and execute them by taking catches offered to them.
The pattern followed in today’s match with another commendable bowling performance by men in orange restricting KKR to 138 which was made possible with the help of some brilliant catches in the field.
Best fielding efforts came from Manish Pandey who pulled off two stunning catches, first one being at point dismissing Nitish Rana with the ball popping out while diving and grabbing the ball on his second attempt.
The other catch was off Andre Russell which was lobbed up in the air off the top edge and brilliantly pouched by Pandey running backwards, both times the beneficiary being Billy Stanlake who got the credits in the wicket column.
