Kolkata Knight Riders defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad by 17 runs in their Indian Premier League clash.

Chasing a challenging 173—run target, Sunrisers Hyderabad could reach 155 for six in their allotted 20 overs with Kolkata bowlers putting on a commendable performance.

For Hyderabad, David Warner and Yuvraj Singh top scored with identical 26 each.

Earlier, Robin Uthappa struck a gritty 68 off 39 balls to help the Knight Riders recover from a jittery start and post 172 for six.

Despite seeing off openers — Sunil Narine and Gautam Gambhir — early, the Sunrisers bowlers failed to make further in—roads in the middle overs and the Karnataka duo of Uthappa and Manish Pandey (46) put on a solid 77—run partnership from 52 balls.
