Sunrisers and Knight Riders have met each other 19 set in which Knight Riders lead with 12 wins compared to Sunrisers’ 7. Last season, KKR got the better of SRH on both the occasions which will give them the confidence. The two teams have produced some end litigate over the ages, so expect a thriller on the cage.

David Warner and Eoin Morgan flying under the radar has been Sunrisers Hyderabad’s wont. They’ve sort of public to consistently make the playoffs of the Indian Premier League (IPL). They were the last generate to enable for the playoffs last spice and finished third after their 17-run defeat to Delhi Capitals in Qualifier 2. This year too, they noiselessly checked in to a Chennai hotel and most of their outlandish recruits conjoined them on April 2, which gave them just enough time to complete quarantine.

The last-ball win also Asher up some oxidize in the field by both the four and that is a factor all teams would indigence to quickly dust off if they mean to build momentum timely on in the tournament.

Barring the two Jasons — Holder and Roy — Sunrisers have a full squad to follow from and that can be a pleasant headache. Last season they had benched Jonny Bairstow and Wriddhiman Saha made an instant impact with Warner upfront before acquisition aggrieved. But with all three available now, it remains to be skilled how Sunrisers condition out their top order, where Kane Williamson should be a certainty. The main intrust would be led by Manish Pandey with Priyam Garg, Abhishek Sharma, Abdul Samad and it would be interesting to see how they fit in Kedar Jadhav, their latest acquirement. The Sunrisers’ other two acquisitions at the auction – Mujeeb Ur Rahman and J Suchith – annex to a very hardy bowling line-up led by Bhuvneshwar Kumar, the render of their spearhead, who signorina most of last season due to injury, will be a big boost for Sunrisers. With Rashid Khan another certainty and T Natarajan possession coming on impressively in the last few months, SRH may rotate all-rounders Holder and Mohammed Nabi, who amusement only one gamble last season, as the tournament progresses. The match-upways are interesting too: Warner vs Pat Cummins, Shubman Gill vs Bhuvneshwar, Andre Russell/Morgan vs Rashid. Harbhajan Singh, Kuldeep Yadav, Shakib Al Hasan, Sunil Narine and the trio of Shivam Mavi, Kamlesh Nagarkoti and Prasidh Krishna make it an funny mix up too.

SRH vs KKR Preview, IPL 2021: Sunrisers Hyderabad look to dust the rust against  Kolkata Knight Riders | Cricket News - Times of India

Probable Playing XI of SRH:

  1. David Warner
  2. Jonny Bairstow
  3. Manish Pandey
  4. Wriddiman Saha
  5. Priyam Garg
  6. Kedar Jadhav
  7. Jason Holder
  8. Bhuvneshwar kumar
  9. Rashid Khan
  10. Sandeep Sharma
  11. T Natrajan

The Above predicted Playing 11 looks balanced to some extent as Likes of Kane Williamson still don’t fit in the team as no quality Indian all-rounder is present and that makes its middle order a little targetable.

Probable Playing XI of KKR:

  1. Shubman Gill
  2. Rahul Tripathi
  3. Nitesh Rana
  4. Eoin Morgan
  5. Andre Russell
  6. Dinesk Karthik
  7. Shakib Al Hasan
  8. Harbhajan Singh /Kuldeep Yadav
  9. Pat Cummins
  10. kamlesh Nagarkoti
  11. Prasidh Krishna

KKR’s above predicted 11 look a lot more balanced with plenty of options for each spot in the team. This team should definitely find the right combination in this season for most of their games.

Pitch Analysis:

The Pitch seemed quite slow but a good wicket to bat and put up a decent total if batting first. As seen in the Opener of IPL 2021 between MI and RCB; there wasn’t much dew in the later half of the game and it didn’t favour the team batting 2nd as it would do in presence of dew on the venue. So decision to bat or bowl after winning the toss shouldn’t be based on the dew factor in mind. Rather look to keep it simple and decide whether a run-chase will help team win or defending the score based on the bowling lineup of the teams respectively.
