Nathan Coulter-Nile    (River)    Bowler    Kolkata Knight Riders
Coulter-Nile ended with figures of three for 21 from three overs and was awarded Man of the Match in KKR's win over RCB Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis

Coulter-Nile claimed the wickets of two of international cricket's biggest superstars in Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers to leave Royal Challengers in a stupor chasing just 132. The Australian fast bowler set the tone for the match when he had Bangalore captain Kohli caught at second slip with the third ball of the innings. De Villiers' wicket came in his second over and the scoreboard read 12/3. In his third and final over he struck again to remove Kedar Jadhav, Bangalore's highest run-scorer of the innings with nine. Despite all the wickets the 29-year-old was Kolkata's most expensive bowler with a whopping 21 runs conceded. He bowled 12 dot balls, tied for the most in Knight Rider's bowling innings with Umesh Yadav. In Coulter-Nile's three games for Kolkata he has eight wickets at an average of 24.66 runs.
Chris Woakes    All Rounder    Kolkata Knight Riders
Woakes snagged three wickets for six runs in two overs against Royal Challengers Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis

Woakes had a brilliant first over, scalping Chris Gayle and Stuart Binny to leave Bangalore 40/6 and effectively winning the game for Kolkata. It's the England allrounder's best haul in his maiden IPL season, his previous best came in his third match where he took two for 30. 10 of Woakes' 12 balls were dots, he gave away one boundary and one two. The 28-year-old also contributed with the bat, notching Knight Riders' second-highest score with 18 from 21 balls to help them to 131.
Colin de Grandhomme    All Rounder    Kolkata Knight Riders
De Grandhomme took figures of three for four in 1.4 overs in Kolkata Knight Riders' win over Royal Challengers Bangalore Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis

After Coulter-Nile and Woakes set Bangalore up de Grandhomme knocked them down and took his career-best T20 figures in the processes. The last-minute replacement for Andre Russel made an impact for the first time after a double-strike in the ninth over leveled Royal Challengers for the lowest total in IPL history. In his first three matches Dutchy hadn't really contributed with bat or ball, score just one run in two innings and taking one wicket for 27 runs in two matches.
Virat Kohli    Batsman    Royal Challengers Bangalore
Kohli was out for a first-ball duck in Royal Challengers Bangalore's loss to Kolkata Kight Riders Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis

Kohli was dismissed with the third ball of the innings by Australia fast bowler Nathan Coulter-Nile when a flashing drive ended in the hands of Manish Pandy at second slip. The star batsman's side was eventually bowled our for a measly 49 runs, the lowest total in IPL history. It's the 28-year-old's only failure in what has otherwise been a good start to his IPL. Kohli has scores 62, 28, 64, in his four matches, he missed the beginning of this edition of the tournament after a shoulder injury he sustained in India's Test series against Australia.
Sunil Narine    Bowler    Kolkata Knight Riders
Narine scored 34 runs from 17 balls in Kolkata's win over Bangalore Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis

Narine blasted six fours and one six as an opening stick for Knight Riders, his 34 was the top-score for the match in a game that included the likes of Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, and Chris Gayle. Opening the batting with the West Indies international has been a productive ploy for Kolkata, in his four matches at the top he has scores of 34, 42, six, and 37. The mystery spinner didn't get a chance to bowl after Knight Riders' pacers bowled Royal Challengers our for just 49.
Younis Khan    Batsman    Pakistan
Khan inched his way to 58 off 138 and recorded his 10,000th Test run on Day 3 of Pakistan's first Test against the West Indies at Kingston.

Fantasy Analysis

Playing in his final Test series, the Pakistani batsman used his trademark patience to record his 33rd career Test half-century (to go with his 34 centuries). While it was far from easy, needing 19 balls and nearly 40 minutes to score his first run, he eventually settled in with Babar Azam to partner for 131 runs. With six wickets still in hand for Pakistan's first innings, it's unlikely Khan will bat again as he looks to increase his total in the final two-plus matches of his vaunted Test career.
