Dubai: Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) moved a step close to the playoff qualification after a 6-wicket win over SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) in Match 49 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 on Sunday at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai.

While chasing the target of 116 runs, KKR lost two wickets early but later a 55-run stand between opener Shubman Gill (57) and No.4 Nitish Rana (25) guided them to dominate in the game again. Gill also got to his first fifty of this season and towards the end veteran wicket-keeper batsman, Dinesh Karthik (18*) proved himself as a finisher yet again as he batted till the end with a strike rate of 150.

Earlier while bowling first KKR bowlers put in a splendid performance with the ball as everyone apart from Sunil Narine got wickets. However, Narine was the most economical bowler as he gave away just 12 runs from his four overs.
