VenueRajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Uppal, Hyderabad
The Dolphins squad led by Morne van Wyk continued with their dismal performance in the 2014 Champions League Twenty20 when they lost their third successive match against Lahore Lions. Kolkata Knight Riders are on the top of the table in Group A with 12 points after winning all three games. The final pool match between the two teams will most probably benefit the strong unit of KKR who will add another four points but Dolphins will try to gain the lost pride as well.
Robbie Frylink demonstrated a sizzling unbeaten innings of 63 from 27 mere deliveries vs. Lahore Lions while Morne van Wyk and Jonathan Vandiar scored 36 and 29. Their top and middle order batting needs discipline whereas Frylink, Kyle Abbott and Cameron Delport are trying hard for the productive bowling.
Suryakumar Yadav took the match away from Perth Scorchers by dispatching 43 off 19 balls as KKR grabbed it by three wickets. Ryan ten Doeschate, Robin Uthappa, Gautam Gambhir and Yusuf Pathan are the pillars of their batting. Sunil Narine is the premier bowler with eight wickets in the event and Kuldeep Yadav along with Piyush Chawla are bowling superbly.
