KKR choked SRH with their spin bowling but it was the individuals who grabbed the attention. From Narine to Dhawan, from Bhuvi to Rashid, and Uthappa to Shastri - all had their moments today and the Twitterati didn't miss the chance to troll everyone. Here are the best tweets from the KKR-SRH game!
An all round performance from the Kolkata Knight Riders led by Robin Uthappa and Manish Pandey ensured a 17 run win over defending champions, Sunrisers Hyderabad. Kolkata
Brief scores: Kolkata Knight Riders 172/6 (Robin Uthappa 68, Manish Pandey 46; Bhuvneshwar Kumar 3/20, Rashid Khan 1/29) beat Sunrisers Hyderabad 155/6 (Yuvraj Singh 26, David Warner 26; Chris Woakes 2/46, Yusuf Pathan 1/2) by 17 runs.
