Cummins trumps Warner in IPL battle


David Warner failed with the bat as his Sunrisers Hyderabad side went down to a 10-run defeat by the Kolkata Knight Riders in their Indian Premier League opener.

Another Australian Test star Pat Cummins played his part for the Knight Riders, taking a crucial wicket as they edged to victory on Sunday.

Half-centuries from Nitish Rana (80) and Rahul Tripathi (53) formed the core of Kolkata’s 6-187, after being put into bat, despite Hyderabad making a strong comeback in the last five overs by claiming five wickets for 42 runs.

Captain Warner was then caught behind for just three in just the second over of the chase before Manish Pandey’s unbeaten 61 off 44 balls went in vain as Kolkata restricted Hyderabad to 5-177 in their 20 overs.
