In yet another thriller, two-time Indian Premier League (IPL) champions Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) sealed a 10-run win against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai on Sunday. Put into bat by SRH captain David Warner, KKR set a 188-run target, thanks to Nitish Rana's 56-ball 88 and Rahul Tripathi's 29-ball 53. SRH's hopes were kept alive by Manish Pandey (61) and Jonny Bairstow (55 off 40), but the lack of batting depth proved costly for Warner's side, as they came short by 10 runs. Defending 22 in the last over, Andre Russell leaked only 11 runs, which included a six off the last ball by Pandey. Catch highlights and cricket scores for SRH vs KKR match here:
