IPL 2018: Kolkata Knight Riders Vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Match Preview And Prediction

15 April 2018

Sunrisers won both the games they played against RR and MI.

Kolkata: In a fresh injury blow to Kolkata Knight Riders, young pacer Kamlesh Nagarkoti was on Saturday ruled out of the remainder of IPL season due to a foot injury.

Sunrisers Hyderabad needs 139 runs to win from 20 Overs. Dinesh Karthik brought in debutant Tom Curran in place of Mitchell Johnson and the move didn't quite pay the dividends as he would've liked. In any case, the guests did not look excessively persuading in a humble pursue against Mumbai Indians the previous evening before pulling off a one-wicket triumph off the last ball, a first in IPL history.

"When play resumed, they were able to get things going as we lost a quick wicket or two", Karthik said at the post-match media conference. But the bowling unit, in the absence, did an excellent job to restrict a good batting lineup to a modest 147. Mavi bowled just the one over, conceding 10 runs in what turned out to be an overall disappointing game for KKR.

They had Sunil Narine opening the batting alongside Chris Lynn in the first two games of the season. SRH will want the other batsmen to step up to the occasion and make things easy for their skipper.

That will delay the title party a little longer, but they are still going to win the league - it is just a matter of time. To get back to winning ways, here are the three changes that City need to make.

The wicket straight after the rain break was a bonus and SRH did not look back after that. Whereas hosts KKR will hope to continue their dominance on their home ground.

Kolkata needs to fix both the batting line-up and the bowling front. Rana started off with a boundary but only managed a 16-ball 18 before Narine fell for 9 as Lynn was fighting a lone battle at the top.

The left-arm spinner's arm ball stuck a bit on the pitch and the batsman ended up popping it wide to the left side of the bowler, which he grabbed it diving full length. However, skipper Dinesh Karthik isn't perturbed, not yet anyway.

An hot evening is expected at the Eden Gardens with a maximum temperature of 37°.
