Warner’s orange army currently stands 5th in the points table. Despite the destructive top-order, their middle order woes has costed them more than a couple of matches. Their pace attack looks balanced despite the loss of Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Rashid khan’s magic spell in the middle overs is still a mystery to the opponents. Sunrisers faced Knight Riders already in the reverse fixture and lost the match by seven wickets. Hyderabad must win this match to stay alive in the road leading to playoffs.
Possible – 11
Johnny Bairstow (WK), David Warner (C), Manish Pandey, Kane Williamson, Vijay Shankar, Priyam Garg, Abishek Sharma, Rashid Khan, T Natarajan, Basil Thampi, Khaleel Ahmed.
Kolkata Knight Riders
KKR ranks in 4th position on the points table. After the captaincy change, KKR didn’t look their usual best in the last game. MI had a clinical win against KKR. The Knight Riders need to improve on their batting to a significant extent. Rana’s inconsistency in top order, lack of a stable opening pair, Andre Russell out of form and et all affects the team’s chances of having a victory. Cummins is riding on a red hot form and will be expected to retain that. KKR’s bowling, though leaked quite a few runs in the last game, are not a concern to be worried at the moment for them. Knight Riders have to concentrate on their top order batsman’s form to have a fighting chance against SRH, a team with a wonderful bowling attack.
Possible – 11
Subman Gill, Rahul Tripathi, Nitish Rana, Eoin Morgan (C), Andre Russell, Dinesh Karthik (WK), Pat Cummins, Chris Green, Prasidh Krishna, Shivam Mavi, Varun Chakravarthy.
With both the teams eyeing a win to stay alive in the road to play-offs, it’ll be an interesting clash to watch out for. We believe that, the world-cup winning captain, Eoin Morgan, will steady the ship and will be fighting to win this game.
Kolkata knight riders has an edge in this interesting clash.
