Keeping their winning streak alive with three wins from three games, Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) registered a five-wicket victory against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in a rain-hit Indian Premier League (IPL) game at the Eden Gardens on April 14. Sunrisers are on top of the table now with two wins from two, and if the pattern of win-toss-win-match holds, they could establish a sizeable lead.

But while SRH captain Williamson drew on his vast experience in rotating his bowlers, KKR continued to make surprising decisions that weren't successful. And that rubbed off on Shakib, who smashed Russell for two fours and a six in the 12th over that brought the equation well in favour of the Sunrisers.

He bowled with great discipline and variety, tying the KKR batsmen down and taking the early wicket of Robin Uthappa.

Johnson's return to the starting XI was in itself a bit surprising and the Australian did little to justify his inclusion on a night where everything went wrong for the Kolkata Knight Riders. Meanwhile, the KKR have been able to win one as they lost a nail biting game from Chennai Super kings.

Against his former franchise, Pandey couldn't quite get going as he grappled around for 11 balls before completely playing around a Kuldeep delivery to be dismissed leg before wicket.

Fantasy Picks: Narine and Karthik are two dependable picks from the KKR lineup.

Earlier, India pace spearhead Bhuvneshwar Kumar delivered crucial blows as SRH made the most of a hour-long rain break and some excellent catching by Manish Pandey to restrict KKR to a modest 138/8.

For KKR, Sunil Narine picked up 2 wickets while Kuldeep Yadav, Mitchell Johnson and Piyush Chawla all getting one wicket each. Chris Lynn looked good for his 34-ball 49 but was taken out by Shakib, and Karthik's 29 towards the end of the innings was the only other significant contribution with the bat. We sent Narine in because they were using a left-arm spinner that time.
