Kolkata Knight Riders win by Sunrisers

All-rounder Jacques Kallis hit top form and Eoin Morgan explode before a packed Eden Gardens as defensive champions Kolkata Knight Riders stormed to a 48-run win over Sunrisers Hyderabad on Sunday.
The burly South African struck a brisk 41 and took 3/13 in four overs as Hyderabad was restricted in their chase of 181. Along with Captain Gambhir second consecutive and record 18th IPL 50 and Morgan maddening 21-ball 47, Kallis had earlier helped the home team post a massive 180.

The veteran all-rounder then removed Hyderabad openers in following overs to scupper the chase after Parthiv Patel and Cameron had added 57 at the top of the order.
