There is good news for Sunrisers Hyderabad. Injured Kane Williamson will be available for the Sunrisers in the next match. Williamson said he recently suffered an injury, but is now well. When asked during the match between Hyderabad and Kolkata Knight Riders in Abu Dhabi on Saturday if he would be present in the next match, he replied yes.
Speaking of the match, Kolkata Knight Riders beat Sunrisers Hyderabad by seven wickets in the Indian Premier League on Saturday after an unbeaten half-century by a series of bowlers led by young batsman Shubhaman Gill and Pat Cummins. Sunrisers were able to score 142 runs for the loss of four wickets while batting first. Cummins, the most expensive foreign player in the IPL, was criticized for his short bowling against the Mumbai Indians, who took one wicket for 19 runs in four overs. Spinner Varun Chakraborty took David Warner’s valuable wicket for 25 runs.
