The Kolkata Knight Riders play the Sunrisers Hyderabad in Abu Dhabi as they both look for their first win of the campaign. Both teams disappointing in their opening encounters so I expect this to be a very close encounter.

Kolkata Knight Riders Form


The Knight Riders lost their opening IPL match to the Mumbai Indians in Abu Dhabi by 49 runs. Mumbai scored 195 runs batting first and in response the Knight Riders could only manage 146 runs. Dinesh Karthik scored 30 runs while Pat Cummins had a late flurry, scoring 33 runs off 12 balls.

The Knight Riders will need more runs from their top order so that the likes of Andre Russell can play their natural attacking game later on in the innings.
