SRH VS KKR Match Preview:
Sunrisers Hyderabad(SRH) had a forgettable last game against CSK. Their batting once again flopped and exposed the weak middle order. David Warner said that they needed an extra batsman in the last game. All-rounder Abhishek Sharma might get back into the playing XI in place of Shahbaaz Nadeem.
SRH's bowling has been in decent form. Khaleel Ahmed has consistently taken wickets and will be a key bowler. Rashid Khan will be responsible to contain the opposition during the middle overs.
Kolkata Knight Riders(KKR) batsmen, too, struggled in their last game against MI. Eoin Morgan has now become the captain and will play with an added responsibility. Dinesh Karthik could prove to be a game-changer in the batting in this match.
KKR Bowlers were not able to take wickets or contain runs against MI. Chris Green was added to the playing XI but he couldn't make much of an impact. In Sunil Narine's absence, Varun Chakaravarthy will lead the spin attack. The management might go with the same playing XI in this match.
Kolkata Knight Riders have been a much better side in IPL 2020 than Sunrisers Hyderabad so far. However, both the teams are looking for consistency, and KKR, considering their overall form, has a slight edge over SRH.
