KOLKATA KNIGHT RIDERS
- Kolkata Knight Riders kept their faint hopes of playoff qualification intact with a resounding 52-run win over Mumbai Indians this past Monday, a match which saw them bowl out Rohit Sharma’s side for just 113 after putting a score of 165/9 on the board.
- Following that victory, it would be a surprise if KKR deviate from that starting line-up with captain Shreyas Iyer having previously hinted at his discontent caused by the consistent team changes made match-by-match.
- Sunrisers Hyderabad’s dramatic drop in form has left their hopes of making the play-offs in serious doubt and it is critical that they bring to an end this run of four straight defeats to an end here against KKR.
- Injuries have not felt SRH’s cause and things aren’t expected to get better in time for this match, with the likes of all-rounder Washington Sundar and bowler T. Natarajan both expected to miss out once again.
This match comes along following the news that Kolkata Knight Riders head coach Brendon McCullum is set to leave the franchise come the end of this year’s IPL to take charge of England’s Test side. Rumours of differences between McCullum and skipper Shreyas Iyer as the tournament has gone on can’t have helped KKR, but they remain in with a chance of reaching the playoffs provided they can gain victory here. Sunrisers Hyderabad do not represent the strongest opposition, with confidence and morale likely to be low within a camp hit by the loss of key players. Assuming players such as Washington Sundar and Natarajan are unable to feature here, then KKR are the side worth backing to win.
