Kolkata Knight Riders lose in the previous match against Punjab Kings negated the small advantage they had in the points table. Now, they have Mumbai Indians and Punjab kings closely following them on the points table and every win of these three teams might drastically change the mid table tussle in the points table alongside Rajasthan Royals. Sunrisers Hyderabad on the other hand are officially out of play-off contention and will look to end their season on a positive note with few wins. And they might also have fun pushing other teams out of the qualification race along with them.

Kolkata Knight Riders Preview

KKR suffered a road block after a loss in their previous match against Punjab kings. Venkatesh Iyer continued his good form at the top with another excellent 67 runs. Nitish Rana (34 runs) and Rahul Tripathi (31 runs) scored vital 30+ scores to keep their scorecard ticking and took their team to 165/7 despite very les contribution from lower order.

Spin duo of Varun Chakravarthy and Sunil Narine tested the opposition batsmen with their probing lines and variations as they had combined figures of 8-0-58-3. Shivam Mavi bowled well and ended with decent figures of 4-0-31-1. Tim Southee and Vankatesh iyer were taken for lot of runs in the last game and their fielding did not help team`s cause with multiple drop catches at crucial moments.   

Top players to bet on:

Venkatesh Iyer – Iyer has set the power play overs ablaze for the KKR with his stylish stroke play and he has scored runs consistently in the last 4 matches. His ability to contribute with the ball adds great value with the ball for the team.

Varun Chakravarthy – Chakravarthy is truly dominating the batsmen in this season with his variations and has picked up 13 wickets at an economy rate of just 6.5 RPO. We expect him to continue his brilliant show with the ball in this match too.

Kolkata Knight Riders Predicted Playing XI:

Shubman Gill, Venkatesh Iyer, Rahul Tripathi, Eoin Morgan (c), Nitish Rana, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Shakib Al Hasan/Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Shivam Mavi, Tim Southee/Lockie Ferguson, Varun Chakaravarthy

Sunrisers Hyderabad Preview

SRH top order failed to get momentum as their batting stalwarts Jason Roy and Kane Williamson were dismissed cheaply in the last game. Wridhiman Saha played a vital hand of run-a-ball 44 runs. Abishek Sharma (18 runs), Abdul Samad (18 runs), and Rashid Khan (17 runs) scored vital late order runs to take them to a target of 134 runs.

Their bowlers lacked the incisiveness and X-factor to trouble the opposition in the chase barring Jason Holder and Rashid Khan who claimed 4 wickets between them. Bhuvaneshwar has been pretty inconsistent so far in this season with middling performances. Siddharth Kaul and Sandeep Sharma are being targeted by the batsmen in their bowling department.

Top players to bet on:

Jason Holder – Holder has been one of bright prospects of SRH team in the UAE leg with vital runs down the order and some crucial wickets in the middle overs. He had bowling figures of 4-0-27-3 in the last game too.

Rashid Khan – Rashid has bowling figures of 1/26, 1/17, 1/31, & 1/27 in the four matches bowling his quota of 4 overs in every match. His ability to trouble the batsmen with leg spinners and wrong ones has been their trump card in middle overs.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Predicted Playing XI:

Jason Roy, Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Kane Williamson (c), Priyam Garg, Abhishek Sharma, Abdul Samad, Jason Holder, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Basil Thampi/Khaleel Ahmed, Sandeep Sharma

Weather Conditions

Dubai will have a humid and breezy climate and players will struggle to keep themselves hydrated over the course of the match. We expect a full match with no weather interruptions.

Venue Details

Dubai has been the best of the conditions for play in the UAE leg with batsmen scoring consistently over 160+ runs. Bowlers might enjoy the slowness on the track in the middle overs once the ball gets soft and old. We expect an average score of 160-170 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bowl

Last 4 out of the 5 matches have been won by the chasing teams at this venue and teams have chased down 160+ target multiple times here.

KKR has a good depth in their batting line-up with attacking players till No.8 position and they have arguably the strongest spin duo among teams. They miss Andre Russell and Lockie Ferguson due to the injuries and will need to add Shakib Al Hasan if they are unfit to play to boost their all-round strength. SRH batting has been too reliant of Jason Roy and Kane Williamson for big runs with inexperienced middle order. Bowling too has never looked threatening as a unit barring a few individual performances. We expect KKR to win this crucial match and march ahead in the qualification race.

KOLKATA KNIGHT RIDERS will win the match
