IPL’s costliest buy, Mitchell Starc, finally lived up to the billing as he returned with figures of 3-34, which included a sensational new-ball burst that played a crucial role in helping Kolkata Knight Riders fold Sunrisers for just 159. Rahul Tripathi top-scored for SRH with 55 off 35 balls while Heinrich Klaasen smashed 32 off 21 balls. The 62-run stand between Tripathi and Klaasen was the lone positive in an otherwise underwhelming batting effort.
