After a slow start, Kolkata have picked up the pieces and went two wins out of two. While Hyderabad have also won their previous match, it is the Knight Riders who have an edge. There’s a definite edge for the home side in the big hit count and I am backing Kolkata to score more 6s than Hyderabad.

Head to Head


Kolkata Knight Riders have played Sunrisers Hyderabad 23 times in all in this competition history. The team from Kolkata have a 15-8 win-loss record.

KKR have won five of the last six matches but last season saw them share the results. Sunrisers won by seven wickets chasing 176, while Kolkata defended 177 in the other match winning by 54 runs.

Kolkata Knight Riders Form


Kolkata have four points after three matches in this season. They lost to Punjab by seven runs but have defeated Bangalore by 81 runs and Gujarat by three wickets.

The win over Titans was a spectacular one, especially as it was marked by five sixes off the last five balls by Rinku Singh. He has 98 runs this season while Venkatesh Iyer has 120 runs to be their best bat.

With the ball, it is the mystery spin pair of Sunil Narine with six and Varun Chakaravarthy with five, who have been leading the pack.

Kolkata Knight Riders Team News


Litton Das has joined the side but is unlikely to make the playing XI. Any change could possibly be at the top where Jason Roy may replace Rahmanullaz Gurbaz with N Jagadeesan tipped to take the gloves.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Form


Sunrisers Hyderabad have two points from three matches after their eight-wicket win over Punjab Kings in the last match. This came after twin losses – by 72 runs to Rajasthan and by five wickets to Lucknow.

It’s only in the last match that the Hyderabad batters came to the fore. Rahul Tripathi has 108 runs in the season while the next best is Mayank Agarwal with 56.

Wickets among the bowlers are distributed with Mayank Markande and Umran Malik taking four wickets each. Markande has played just one match though, and will be looking to lead the bowling unit along with Adil Rashid.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Team News


Adil Rashid was benched for the last time as Sunrisers played Markande as their wrist spinner. The conditions in Kolkata may see them pair Markande and Rashid with Harry Brook or Marco Jansen likely to make way.
