In a high-scoring game which saw 433 runs being scored in 40 overs, Sunrisers Hyderabad prevented a spirited Kolkata Knight Riders’ batters from overhauling the target.
Brook – who arrived in the tournament with a lot of promise – failed to make a mark in the first three games, but on a batting-friendly Eden Gardens track, the right-handed batter repaid the faith of the franchise by playing a big knock against a quality bowling line-up.
Brook scored an unbeaten 100 off 55 balls and guided SRH to 228 for the loss of 4 wickets in 20 overs. Captain Aiden Markram led his team from the front and scored 26-ball 50 before getting dismissed by Andre Russell.
Abhishek Sharma (32 off 17) and Heinrich Klaasen (16* off 6) played good cameos with the bat to help their team post a big total on the board.
In response, KKR didn’t get a fine start in the run chase as Rahmanullah Gurbaz (0), Venkatesh Iyer (10) and Sunil Narine (0) were back in the dugout pretty early in the powerplay.
But N Jagadeesan (36 off 21), Nitish Rana (75 off 41) and Rinku Singh (58* off 31) played good knocks but they failed to finish the game for their team. Andre Russell – who was brilliant with the ball by picking up three key wickets – failed with the bat in the run chase.
