Fantastic Friday brings on another super showdown encounter between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kolkata Knight Riders. After a long break of a couple of games, the Brabourne Stadium has been activated for this match. Sunrisers Hyderabad has grabbed their lost momentum in the last two clashes, while DC has ruined KKR in their preceding match. For SRH, the likes of Abhishek Sharma and Kane Williamson have provided the drive which the side has been looking for a long time in the batting. Conversely, KKR’s batting was looking completely pale in the last match, but the bowling was comparatively decent at the end.
So, it will be a sure-shot contest between KKR’s bowling side and the batting line-up of Hyderabad. There could be a few key battles to watch out for in this match, like (Williamson vs Umesh), (Pooran vs Narine) and (S.Iyer vs Bhuvneshwar). Both teams have headed into 21 games in the past, out of which KKR has dominated with 14 victories, and SRH has only succeeded in 7 games. Then let’s hope that the match will be a fascinating affair for the fans and make a few quick predictions and probabilities for this encounter between SRH & KKR.
SRH vs KKR: Match Predictions
As the game is heading on the tricky track of Brabourne stadium, then the bounce and turn is the viability. That’s Why the grippers like Varun Chakravarthy, Sunil Narine, and Aiden Markram may spell their magic with the ball. Also, the pacers who can extract the bouncy juice from the surface like Pat Cummins, Marco Jansen, and Bhuvneshwar Kumar would grab wickets in the bunches. Due to the heavy influence of the dew in the game, the side who will win the coin will choose to bowl first. The general average score of 1st & 2nd innings at this venue usually stays between 162 and 175, indicating a high-scoring game.
SRH vs KKR: Probable Playing XIs
Hyderabad’s ace in the spin department, Washington Sundar will miss the match due to his hand injury.
