KKR lost the toss and were asked to bowl but eventually that’s what they wanted. Morkel was making a comeback into the competitive form of cricket after a long time. He started off slow and bowled wayward. He even got the wicket of Warner but that was on a no ball. Once Morkel settled, he and Yadav started taking the wickets. Morkel had Dhawan and Yadav had Warner. KKR managed to get a good platform, taking a total of 3 wickets from the PowerPlay overs.
