Kolkata Knight Riders vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Predictions


The Knight Riders topped the table with nine wins from 14 matches, and have beaten the Sunrisers twice this season already. They have won their last five completed matches and have a well-balanced squad that is performing well and should be too strong for the Sunrisers.

Head-to-Head


The Knight Riders have won four of the last five matches against the Sunrisers, including the last three on the bounce.

Kolkata Knight Riders Form


The Knight Riders have won their last five completed matches, with their most recent triumph being the eight-wicket win over the Sunrisers in Qualifier 1. 

An incredible spell of bowling from Mitchell Starc (3/34) reduced the Sunrisers to 39/4 after five overs, before bowling them out for 159 in the 20th over.

The Knight Riders got off to a great start before Venkatesh Iyer (51* off 28 balls) and Shreyas Iyer (58* off 24 balls) powered the Knight Riders to the win off just 13.4 overs.

Kolkata Knight Riders Team News


The Knight Riders are in superb form and are unlikely to make any changes to their team.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Form


After losing the Qualifier 1 to the Knight Riders, the Sunrisers bounced back to beat the Rajasthan Royals by a hefty 36 runs to win through to the final.

The Sunrisers started superbly but slowed down as wickets fell, before Heinrich Klaasen smashed 50 off 34 balls, hitting four sixes but no fours. ​​

The Royals didn’t get off to a good start and with wickets falling regularly they could only manage 139/7 off their 20 overs.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Team News


The Sunrisers brought Aiden Markram back for this match but aside from a brilliant catch he failed with bat and ball. They are likely to stick with him because he has the potential to play a match-winning role in the final. 

Verdict

I am backing Kolkata Knight Riders to win. I am also backing Venkatesh Iyer to top score for Kolkata Knight Riders.

Travis Head is a good bet to top score for the Sunrisers Hyderabad.
