Russell fails with the bat; KKR in trouble
October 18, 2020  17:08

KKR 111-4 (16 ovs) vs SRH

Natarajan is back into the attack as he starts with a low full toss to Russell, who clips it on the leg side. But the left-armer has overstepped to give away a free hit which Morgan lofts down the ground for a four past mid-off to take KKR past 100, in the 15th over.

A good short ball from Natarajan as Morgan goes for the pull but is hit on the body to get a leg bye and Russell hits the next to long-on for one looking to smash it over the leg side.

Morgan comes down the track but can only get a single on the off-side before Russell swings Natarajan straight into the hands of Shankar on the edge of the boundary at midwicket.

A big jolt for KKR as Russell walks back for nine to leave his team on 105-4 in 15 overs.

Pacer Sandeep comes back for his second spell.

KKR need a big partnership from their current and former captain in Morgan and Dinesh Karthik as they aim to post a competitive total.

The pace bowler does well to keep things tight as he gives away just six singles in his third over, as KKR reach 111-4 in 16 overs.
