KOL vs SRH Dream11 Match Preview

Kolkata Knight Riders are at the 7th position with 5 wins in 12 games. They have been very inconsistent in the last few games but they played well in the last game and will look to continue that in the remaining games. Venkatesh Iyer and Ajinkya Rahane gave them a good start at the top. Shreyas Iyer’s poor form in the last few games is a matter of concern for them. Nitish Rana and Rinku Singh have been very consistent in the middle-order. Andre Russell has been in good form as well. Their batting unit is in decent form and needs to perform consistently. 

Their bowlers did a great job in the last game. Tim Southee has been very consistent while Andre Russell is picking wickets for fun at the moment. Pat Cummins was also good in the last game and his absence will be a big loss for them. Sunil Narine has been exceptional and has bowled very economically. Varun Chakravarthy too did well in the last game. KKR must perform as a team in the remaining games to keep their play-offs hopes alive.

Sunrisers Hyderabad, meanwhile, are at the 6th position with 5 wins in 11 games. They have lost track in the last few games and will look to bounce back strongly. Kane Williamson needs to perform at the top while his partner Abhishek Sharma has done well. Their middle-order of Rahul Tripathi, Aiden Markram and Nicholas Pooran is one of the best in the league and all of them are in great form. Shashank Singh has been decent in the limited opportunities that he has got. 

Their bowling unit is their strength and they should join the party in the remaining matches. T Natarajan’s injury is a big blow to them. Umran Malik and Bhuvneshwar Kumar will be the key pacers for them. Fazalhaq Farooqi too will be crucial if he plays in this game. Kartik Tyagi has been decent in the last two games but there is room for improvement. Jagadeesa Suchith did a great job in the last game. SRH too needs to put in a team performance in this must win game to keep their play-offs chances alive.
