For two times the champions KKR defeated title owners Sunrisers by seven wickets in the rain-truncated match to enter the Qualifier 2 of this IPL. First KKR selects to Bowl, they played a disciplined bowling and fielding and put effort to restrict Sunrisers to the decent score of 128 for seven and then overcome the revised target of 48 in six overs with complete ease.
Gambhir said that all credits go to the bowlers they made the game up for the team, and also he says that the Post-match is the presentation ceremony. The restriction of the bowlers to Sunrisers to stop in 128 was brilliant. Beyond all these times we have lacked in power.

And he is also little disappointed with the batting effort at the time of chasing the small revised target.
“We should have been more sensible with the batting, though,” Gambhir
It was the very bigger wicket than we played with RCB. While coming to our innings, it was coming onto the bat nicely. Gambhir said that if you target for 160, you will get the good score. If you are just looking for 200, it won’t happen.
Sunrisers Captain David Warner Feels that they were at 30 runs is short of what would have been a defendable score on this wicket.
“We were 30 runs short. It was quite a difficult wicket to bat on. The ball was continuing up a bit. It’s been quite a frustrating wicket all season. And they bowled well on it,” said Warner.
The way that we batted is not Good, and the six over the game can be niggly. And he also stated that we have to come with positive energy, to get three wickets, but we came to know that they will come hard and also it happened.
