Cricket Match Preview:

From being on the top position not too long ago, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) have now slipped to the sixth position. This will be slightly alarming for the franchise which has consistently made the playoffs in the last few years. Their opponent, Sun Risers Hyderabad (SRH) have begun their resurgence after being defeated two cricket games in a row and are slightly better placed right now at fifth position.

KKR’s dependence on Andre Russell is well known and all the teams have now realized that if you get him cheaply, half of the batting side of KKR is gone. KKR will need new and many heroes to stay alive in the competition. They have not fired collectively and while Chris Lynn, Sunil Narine, Nitish Rana and Robin Uthappa have fired in different cricket games, the collective effort has not been there.

The biggest concern for them, however, has been their bowling, which just hasn’t looked penetrative enough. Their powerplay bowling has been arguably the most expensive one. The likes of Prasidh Krishna and Andre Russell have been very expensive and haven’t looked like picking up wickets at any stage. Their spinners, too, haven’t been at their best and that has led to their downfall.

SRH, on the other hand, too, have their share of dependencies on David Warner and Jonny Bairstow. Their middle order is non-existent and if Warner and Bairstow are dismissed early, there is a danger of getting bowled out quickly. While their bowling is in much better health compared to KKR’s, the weakness in batting is a cause of concern for them.

This cricket game might be dictated by how the battle between Rashid Khan and Andre Russell will pan out. In the last cricket game between KKR and CSK, Imran Tahir got the better of Russell and in the end, CSK emerged victorious against KKR. Hence, it will be upon other batsmen to do a better job and help KKR reach a good total in case they bat first again.

Cricket Match Information:

Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kolkata Knight Riders will take on each other for the second time in this IPL 2019. KKR emerged victorious the first time courtesy of the late blitz from Andre Russell. As of now, SRH are on the fifth position and KKR are on the sixth position on the points table.

Sunrisers Hyderabad:

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

SRH are being led by Kane Williamson after being out of the side due to injury. Our prediction is of the same playing eleven for them for this cricket game.

Here is our prediction of SRH’s playing XI:

  • David Warner
  • Johnny Bairstow
  • Kane Williamson
  • Vijay Shankar
  • Yusuf Pathan
  • Bhuvaneshwar Kumar
  • Rashid Khan
  • Siddharth Kaul
  • Khaleel Ahmed
  • Vijay Shankar
  • Shahbaz Nadeem

Kolkata Knight Riders

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

KKR are being led by Dinesh Karthik for the second season in a row. He had a good experience leading KKR last year and took the team into the playoffs. Our prediction is of the inclusion of Matt Kelly for this game of cricket in place of Harrey Gurney.

Here is our prediction of KKR’s playing XI:

  • Shubhman Gill
  • Chris Lynn
  • Sunil Narine
  • Andre Russell
  • Nitish Rana
  • Dinesh Karthik
  • Prasidh Krishna
  • Piyush Chawla
  • Matt Kelly
  • Kuldeep Yadav
  • Robin Uthappa

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

Rashid Khan is going to be crucial for SRH for this game of cricket. His performance with the ball will decide if SRH will be able to restrict KKR to a reasonable score or not. Our prediction is of a good cricket performance from him.

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

The pitch in Hyderabad after being beautiful to bat initially has become slower and slower as the tournament has progressed. The role of spinners will become more important from this point onwards.  Our prediction is of a score of around 160 this time around. Conditions are expected to be hot and humid.

Our Prediction:

SRH will begin this game of cricket as favourites. They are in a better form right now in comparison with KKR. Both the teams are under pressure right now to break to into the top four. Our prediction is of SRH’s victory for this game of cricket.

Top Batsman (Prediction):

David Warner (SRH) – 50+ runs

Top Bowler (Prediction):

Rashid Khan (SRH) -2 or more wickets

Most Sixes (Prediction):

David Warner (SRH)
