Tripathi out for 23; KKR lose 1st wicket
October 18, 2020  16:12

KKR 48-1 (6 ovs) vs SRH

Gill, who has made seven from 13 balls, looks to break free. He tries to swing Thampi over the leg side but gets a thick outside edge fine on the off-side for a four.

However, he gets the next ball bang off the middle as he pulls it over midwicket for another boundary.

Two fielders in the deep at deep square and deep midwicket and this time Gill makes room and slashes Thampi through the covers to make it a hat-trick of fours.

Gill then miscues the pull as Thampi bowls the slower ball before Tripathi gets one off the next, to get 14 runs from the over.

Nataraj continues as he beats Rahul, who throws his at a wide outgoing delivery and is beaten before he is hit on the arm trying to flick it on the leg side and takes the run.

Slightly short from Nataraj as Gill uses his wrists to whip it over midwicket for a four and then taps the next on the off-side for one.

Tripathi has sustained a blow to his arm and looks in some pain as the physio comes out to attend.

However, he perishes off the very next delivery as he attempts a big swing against Natarajan but misses and is bowled for 23, as KKR are reduced to 48-1 in six overs.

The ball was not so short but Tripathi still went for the ugly hoick over midwicket and ended up giving his wicket away.
