Indian U 19 fast bowling sensation Kamlesh Nagarkoti ruled out of IPL 2018 due to injury

Live streaming of Kolkata Knight Riders vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Indian Premier League 2018 match at the Eden Gardens Kolkata is available online. KKR take on SRH in their third game of IPL 2018 on Saturday

The Next Stop: Kolkata have just a one day break before facing D'Arcy Short, Ben Laughlin and the Rajasthan Royals on Thursday, whilst Delhi get a five day rest before coming up against Virat Kohli's Royal Challengers Bangalore on Sunday.

Boult gave Delhi Daredevils a terrific start, bowling a maiden first over to Chris Lynn, and then accounting for Sunil Narine.

Bringing in-form Sunil Narine down the order did not help their cause and he might be back at his opening slot.

It will be a "homecoming" for Gautam Gambhir when he walks into the Eden Gardens on Monday evening. The wicket-keeping batsman lost the toss, which saw them bat first.

Kolkata removed three Delhi batsmen including Jason Roy and Gambhir inside the first three overs, derailing their chase, but Pant was playing a blinder. Delhi Daredevils, having won their last match were brimming up with confidence to register another win in their name in the match against Kolkata Knight Riders.

Nitish Rana (59 from 35 balls) made a half-century and Russell smashed a brutal 41 from only 12 deliveries to get KKR up to 200-9, Rahul Tewatia claiming impressive figures of 3-18.

Nitish Rana was the other batting hero, essaying a crucial role of anchoring the innings.

Liverpool should be trophy winners not entertainers - Klopp
But, you know, you can see today with the team everyone tries to pass the ball to me to help me. Liverpool welcome Roma to Anfield for the first-leg semi-final clash on Tuesday, April 24.

The left Hander hit sixes and fours in his explosive innings.

With a better run rate KKR now stands at number 5 while DD is positioned at number 7.

Karthik would also hope that his deputy Robin Uthappa, who is a KKR veteran, shoulders more responsibility with the bat as his scores of 13, 29 and 3 have been a big letdown. "Today I had chose to play till the end and waited for the spinners to come into action as spin bowling is an easy option for me to play" Rana said at the post-match press conference. He got out for just eight runs.

KKR Squad: C Lynn, S Narine, R Uthappa, N Rana, D Karthik, S Gill, A Russell, M Johnson, S Mavi, P Chawla, K Yadav. Rishabh Pant and Glenn Maxwell added 52 for the fourth wicket. The spell was divided between India's Mohammed Shami and Kiwi quick Trent Boult.

There are many challenges in front of Kolkata's new captain Karthik.

The live match IPL 2018 Kolkata Knight Riders vs Delhi Daredevils will be broadcasted on Star Sports 1, Star Sports 1 HD, Star Sports Select 1 and Star Sports Select 1 HD in English Commentary.
