The Gautam Gambhir minus Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) lacks the zing. There were some baffling decisions taken and the outcome was far from pleasing if you are a KKR fan. In the Match 10 of the VIVO IPL 2018, Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) notched up their first win against KKR at Eden Gardens to stretch their lead at the pinnacle spot in the points table.

Electing to field, Kane Williamson’s men restricted the hosts to 138. Bhuvneshwar Kumar impressed with his 3-for, whereas Shakib Al Hasan and Billy Stanlake contributed with 2 wickets each. SRH chased down the total in the penultimate over.
