Fast bowler Nathan Coulter-Nile returned to action for Kolkata Knight Riders in style. The pacer returned figures of 3/20 in his quota of four overs as Sunrisers Hyderabad were restricted to a paltry score of 128 in the Indian Premier League 2017 Eliminator match at M.Chinnaswamy Bengaluru.
Coulter-Nile made his comeback to the side after being hit on the head by Daniel Christian during Knight Riders’ match against Rising Pune Supergiant on May 03. The lanky pacer was introduced into the attack in the 8th and started off nicely giving away just two runs. He proved to be expensive in his second over and conceded 13 runs.

Coulter-Nile then in his third over picked the prized wicket of Kane Williamson. However, it was his last over that proved to be an eventful one. He not only picked two wickets in his final over of the spell but took a spectacular one-handed catch in his follow-through.
Chris Jordan got a leading edge as he was trying to flick. Coulter-Nile stretched to his left and pouched the ball one-hand.

KKR after winning the toss opted to bowl first on a wicket which was behaving slow. A disciplined bowling by Knight Riders resulted in a decent outing for them. Captain David Warner was top-scorer for his side with 37 off 35 balls. Also Check- SRH vs KKR- As it Happened
