Kolkata Knight Riders vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Predictions


KKR won two of their last three matches, while Sunrisers’ season has fallen apart after losing their last four matches. My best bet is for KKR to make it three wins from four to leapfrog Sunrisers in a final push for the playoffs.

Head to Head


Kolkata Knight Riders have won three of their last five matches against Sunrisers Hyderabad, including one tied match. Sunrisers beat KKR in their meeting earlier this season.

Kolkata Knight Riders Form


Kolkata Knight Riders are currently in seventh spot in the IPL, equal on points with Sunrisers Hyderabad, who have a game in hand. They are two points behind the Delhi Capitals in 5th place and four behind Royal Challengers Bangalore. 

KKR have won three of their last four matches, the last of which came by 52 runs against the Mumbai Indians at DY Patil. They batted first and scored 165/9 in their 20 overs. Venkatesh Iyer scored 43 off 24 balls while Nitish Rana scored his 43 off 26 balls.

Kolkata Knight Riders Injuries & Team News


Kolkata Knight Riders are likely to remain unchanged.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Form


Sunrisers Hyderabad are sixth on the table on 10 points, level with KKR and the Punjab Kings. They have played one match less than the two sides above them, and a win in this match would place them two points behind fourth-placed RCB.

All five of SRH’s wins have come when chasing, and five of their six losses have been when they batted second. They lost the only match in which they batted first by five wickets.

Sunrisers lost their last match by 67 runs against RCB. RCB scored 192/3, with Jagadeesha Suchith taking 2/30. In response, only three Sunrisers batters reached double figures, Rahul Tripathi top-scoring with 58 off 37 balls.

Aiden Markram has been in fine form with the bat for SRH, but his 21 came off 27 balls. Sunrisers were bowled out for 125 in the final over. 

Sunrisers Hyderabad Injuries & Team News


Sunrisers Hyderabad have a very talented side and enjoyed some excellent results in the first part of the season, but their form and confidence has fallen away, resulting in them losing their last four matches. The selectors are likely to keep their confidence in their starting XI.
