KKR will look to stop the SRH’s unstoppable run in this year’s IPL. SRH narrowly won their both encounters while KKR lost their last match to call after winning the first game against RCB.
Both teams look to improve their fielding as the SRH dropped three catches in their last match but they were relieved as it didn’t cost them much and they won the match. KKR also dropped catches of Sam Billings and Ravindra Jadeja which costed them the match as they went on to win the game for CSK.
After CSK-KKR game, Kolkata’s bowler Vinay Kumar became hot topic of discussion online as the Karnataka pacer couldn’t defend 17 runs in the last over. He is very like to be replaced with U19 star bowler Shivam Mavi. For SRH, only likely change to place will be their star bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar returning back in place of Sandeep Sharma who missed the last game due to sore back.
Few of KKR’ s very important players in the last few IPL seasons- Shakib Al Hasan, Yusuf Pathan and Manish Pandey are with SRH who will have a huge point to prove against their former franchise.
An hot evening is expected at the Eden Gardens with a maximum temperature of 37°. A bit of thundershowers are expected in the afternoon but a complete 40-over match is expected to make place.
