Three teams are tied at six points before Wednesday matches where Mumbai Indians have a chance to step away. That would put more pressure on Sunrisers Hyderabad ad Delhi Capitals, who are both on six points and two points behind Mumbai. Delhi seem to have found their mojo and will fancy their chances, but it is the 6s market that we are dipping in. I am backing the Kolkata Knight Riders to score the most 6s.

  • Sunrisers Hyderabad have hit the most 6s in just 2 of their last 8 matches (IPL)
  • Kolkata Knight Riders have scored the most 6s in 5 of their last 7 matches (IPL)
  • Kolkata Knight Riders have hit an average of 10.44 6s per game in this campaign (IPL)
  • The team batting first has won 3 of the last 4 matches at this venue (IPL)
  • Kolkata Knight Riders have lost 5 of their last 6 matches (IPL)

Head to Head


Sunrisers Hyderabad played 24 matches against Kolkata Knight Riders so far with nine wins for Hyderabad and 15 victories for Kolkata. It is the Knight Riders who have a recent edge winning five of their last seven H2Hs.

When the teams last met in Kolkata in mid-April, the Sunrisers rode on a Harry Brook superlative century to win by 23 runs.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Form


Sunrisers Hyderabad have six points from eight matches. They are coming off a nine-run win over Delhi Capitals that stopped a three-game losing run.

The Men in Orange have struggled to have an effective batting leader with only Rahul Tripathi’s 170 being the highest. With the ball, Mayank Markande’s ten wickets are the best.

Batting inconsistencies seem to plague the Sunrisers who haven’t been able to stitch partnerships across the board.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Team News


Marco Jansen sat out the previous match as the spin of Akeal Hosein was preferred. Jansen could come back into the side.

Kolkata Knight Riders Form


Kolkata Knight Riders have six points from nine matches and are just above Hyderabad owing to superior net run rate. They are coming off a seven-wicket loss to Gujarat making it five losses across their last six matches.

KKR would like to see their start firing with only Venkatesh Iyer (296) looking close to the 300-run aggregate mark. With the ball, the wrist spin duo of Varun Chakaravarthy (13) and Suyash Sharma (nine) have been leading the Knight Riders.

It could come down to team composition as Kolkata seem to be struggling to get their right team on the park.

Kolkata Knight Riders Team News


Jason Roy missed the last match for Kolkata but should come in for this game.

Verdict

Kolkata Knight Riders have lost a lot of momentum and are moving into a ‘win-all’ territory. The Sunrisers Hyderabad side is not yet that desperate but another loss would put the losers in a tough situation. I am dipping into the sixes market though, with Kolkata Knight Riders my pick to score the most 6s.
