THE PREDICTION

Both Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kolkata Knight Riders come into this game having each lost their last two games and this is a crunch game in the race for the top four places and keeping in touch. KKR dominated the first meeting in this edition of the IPL chasing down the Sunrisers mediocre total of 142/4 with ease and that will give them confidence coming into this game. KKR’s batting remains incredibly fragile despite having some of the biggest hitters in the tournament. Not enough of them are producing in individual matches which is leaving them vulnerable whether batting or bowling first. Sunrisers have some issues themselves and have yet to find the right balance in their team but in Warner and Bairstow, they have one of the best opening partnerships in the tournament that can lay the foundation for victory. Those two players along with Rashid Khan can make the difference here unless something clicks in the KKR batting order. Both teams are wildly unpredictable and inconsistent so this match is best left well alone.
