IPL-2018: Rain stops play between KKR and SRH

Lynnsanity finds form: Chris Lynn's start to the IPL tournament wasn't up to his lofty standards but the Queenslander showed glimpses in the first two matches. KKR also bolstered their support staff with the inclusion of Mumbai all-rounder Abhishek Nayar who mentored skipper Dinesh Karthik in the past.

The Next Stop: Kolkata will once again host on Tuesday with Ricky Ponting's Delhi Daredevils coming to town on the back of their first victory, with the top-of-the-table Sunrisers getting a six-day break before they travel to Mohali and meet Aaron Finch's Kings XI Punjab on Friday.

Significantly, SRH's fielding did the major damage for the home team as Manish Pandey held onto two screamers to completely deflate KKR's batting. The SRH batting struggled once Dhawan was dismissed against Mumbai, and if KKR can get him out early, it will be interesting to see how Williamson and co. cope. This is the first time that SRH have beaten KKR at the Eden Gardens. Shakib's dismissal, off Piyush Chawla for 27, and Williamson's for 50 off Mitchell Johnson brought two new batsmen at the crease, but Yusuf Pathan and Deepak Hooda took SRH home. Things are surely working in SRH's favor as of now. The bowling attack at Williamson's disposal seems head and shoulders above those of the remaining sides. Lynn looked in good touch against CSK before he was undone by Jadeja, and he will have to play a key role if KKR are to win against this bowling lineup.

The 22-year-old Krishna has played 23 matches for Karnataka, only three of which have been in the T20 format. Kolkata's Achilles heel has been their bowling and whether they drop R Vinay Kumar from the team or not would be interesting to know. "So we have pace in the kitty", the KKR skipper told reporters on the eve of their match against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Including the last match between the two.

Not quite in his elements today, Rashid could not pick up a wicket but ensured he wasn't taken to the cleaners in four decent overs.

SRH win. Hyderabad's efficiency with the ball gives them the edge.
