Kolkata Knight Riders

kkr-vs-srh-ipl-match-prediction

Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) have had a mixed start to their IPL 10 campaign. They won against Royal Challengers Bangalore at home to start their tournament only to lose away to Chennai Super Kings in what was their first game at M.S.Chidambaram Stadium in more than 2 years. KKRs new look squad has settled in nicely with two good batting displays. Their bowling has been pretty formidable as well. Although they couldnt defend a target in excess of 200 in their last match, it was more due to a magnificent knock from Sam Billings, excessive dew in the second half of the game and a belter of a batting pitch. Their biggest concern, however, is their fielding and new skipper Dinesh Karthik would be looking to address that sector before they take to the field in Eden Gardens on Saturday.

Sunil Narine picked up from where he had left last year, with his quintessential brand of wily bowling, paired with his blistering batting upfront. The opening pair of Narine and Chris Lynn has the potential to take the game out of the opponents reach in a span of a few overs. Their middle-order has looked solid as well with Robin Uthappa, Nitish Rana and the skipper all looking in good touch. Andre Russell is one of the most feared hitters throughout the world and has the ability to turn fielders into mere spectators, something he showed against Chennai with a score of 88, hitting 11 sixes in the process and holding the Orange Cap momentarily.

Spin has always been KKRs strong-point and they have an exceptional spin bowling unit this time as always with 3 quality spinners in Sunil Narine, Kuldeep Yadav, and the experienced Piyush Chawla. Their pace department looks a bit shaky after the omission of Mitchell Starc from IPL 10. His replacement Tom Curran looked good in bits and pieces in their last outing. KKR would be looking for proper balance amongst their pacers and we could see debuts for U-19 pacers Kamlesh Nagarkoti or Shivam Mavi. The key players surely are the men from the Caribbean, Andre Russell and Sunil Narine with their coverage of both bat and ball.

Predicted XI: KKR

Sunil Narine, Chris Lynn, Robin Uthappa, Nitish Rana, Dinesh Karthik( c & wk ), Rinku Singh, Andre Russell, Tom Curran, Piyush Chawla, Kuldeep Yadav, Kamlesh Nagarkoti.

Sunrisers Hyderabad

Sunrisers Hyderabad has had a solid start to their IPL 10 campaign with two wins on the trot. They have played both their games at home, beating Rajasthan Royals comprehensively, followed by a win in a last-ball thriller against Mumbai Indians, who are yet to register a win in IPL 10. With the tragedy, involving David Warner, SRH has a new leader in Kane Williamson, who has to lead his team impressively in their first two home games. However, their real test begins on Saturday as they prepare for their first away game of the season at the mighty Eden Gardens, which has been somewhat of a fortress for KKR in the previous seasons. Shikhar Dhawan looks in stunning touch as he leads the Orange Cap standings. Their strength, as always, lies in their formidable bowling line-up. Even without their spearhead Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, who missed the last game with a last-minute hamstring injury, they look an impressive bowling unit.

Indians Sandeep Sharma and Siddharth Kaul have had a good IPL career so far and always seem to pick up wickets and probably are the among the most underrated players of the tournament and Billy Stanlake has impressed with his pace. They are potent in their spin department as well with Rashid Khan still exciting with his quick wrist action and ex-knight Shakib Al Hasan bringing all his experience to the team. Deepak Hooda and Yusuf Pathan can get in a few tight overs in the middle as well. Their middle order looks a bit shaky with ex-knights Yusuf Pathan and Manish Pandey not being tested properly. Kane Williamson is due to a big knock as well.

Wriddhiman Saha is a valuable addition to this team too, with his stability upfront and exceptional wicket-keeping. Deepak Hooda can also be an unexpected match-winner, both with bat and ball. The key players, however, remain Shikhar Dhawan and Rashid Khan with their might with bat and ball respectively. Our prediction says that Sunrises wouldn’t want to change their winning XI unless Bhuvaneshwar is declared fit to play, for which well have to wait until the final minutes.

Predicted XI: SRH

Shikhar Dhawan, Wriddhiman Saha( wk ), Kane Williamson( c ), Manish Pandey, Shakib Al-Hasan, Deepak Hooda, Yusuf Pathan, Rashid Khan, Siddharth Kaul, Sandeep Sharma, Billy Stanlake
