KKR won the most recent fixture by 54 runs.

Kolkata Knight Riders Form


Kolkata Knight Riders had a disappointing season last year but have had a good start to this season with two wins from their three matches.

An opening round loss to Punjab Kings by seven runs preceded a brilliant 81-run win over Royal Challengers Bangalore.

The last result for the side was a three wicket win against Gujarat Titans. Venkatesh Iyer stole the show with a superb 83 in the second innings as KKR claimed a dramatic win as Rinku Sing smashed five sixes in the last over as KKR chased down a mammoth 205 run target off the last ball.

Kolkata Knight Riders Team News


We expect the same team to run out for this one given their current form. Shreyas Iyer continues to be side-lined with injury.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Form


Sunrisers Hyderabad were disappointing as well last season as they finished in third last. This season has seen them get off to a rocky start with only one win from their three matches.

Rajasthan Royals were their first opponents this season in a match that the Sunrisers would lose by 72 runs. A 5-wicket loss to Lucknow Super Giants would follow in the second match.

The boys from Hyderabad claimed an eight-wicket win over Punjab Kings in their most recent match. A fine 74 by Rahul Tripathi allowed the Sunrisers to chase down a modest 144 run target set by Punjab thanks to a fine bowling display. The Sunrisers chased the target down with little trouble.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Injuries


The team will be announced at the toss but they should have the same selection available for this one.

Verdict

I am tipping Kolkata Knight Riders to continue their good form with a win at home. Sunriser’s Rahul Tripathi looks to have found some form and I am backing him to cover his total runs market.
