Match No 10 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018 saw Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) take on Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). Batting first, KKR managed just 138 runs on the board, thanks to a 49 from Chris Lynn. Sunrisers Hyderabad bowlers once again proved to be too much for the opponents.

In reply, SRH were never off the block. Sunil Narine and Kuldeep Yadav managed to hold SRH batsmen, but found no support. It was skipper Kane Williamson, who held their innings together with a 44-ball 50. They went to win the match by 5 wickets.
