The Sunrisers will hope to maintain their winning streak with their wins against Rajasthan Royals and Mumbai Indians. The team seems to have done pretty well with a balanced batting and bowling performance which reflect in their two earlier victories. The Knights though owing to their previous games could make some changes and fasten both their batting and bowling strategies, though limited by resources. Sunil Narine is a blistering with the bat and the second-highest run scorer for KKR, with Australian Chris Lynn being the other master blaster who can cause serious dent to the bowling.
The Sunrisers too have their batting potency with Shikhar Dhawan going all guns blazing in their previous two matches where the performance was top notch, and with SRH having their bowlers also delivering KKR needs to go full power at their home ground.
The statistics between the two however falls in place with KKR winning majority of the games in the IPL format and none by SRH at Eden Gardens, and most interestingly no team has had a maximum winning streak against the Sunrisers than the team of Kolkata Knight Riders in the history of the Indian Premier League. The team of Kolkata Knight Riders has some serious firepower with decent fast bowling flair. The Sunrisers need to be cautious with the two time champions especially at their home ground, and KKR would hope that Andre Russel repeats his brilliant knock despite the loss against CSK, scoring a 36 ball 88.
We can expect a cliff hanger sort of a duel between the two where the former champions KKR will not settle for anything less than a win at their home ground where pride is at stake and will hope to overcome a one match loss to the Chennai Super Kings, and where the team of Sunrisers Hyderabad will foresee in repeating the same.
It is going to be one hell of a match between the two elite teams, grab it live from 8:00 p.m. I.S.T onwards.
