[19 May, 54th IPL Match 2018] SRH Vs KKR Match Prediction, Pre-Match Analysis, Playing 11 and Betting Tips.

The 54th match of Vivo IPL 2018 is another do or die stuff, but this time it will be the Knights of Shah Rukh Khan who will look to win and secure the third place and keep the mathematical side of IPL away from them. SRH will surely finish second if not first and has been the most entertaining side in this year’s IPL. Stay with us for the latest team news, starting XIs, pre-match analysis and of course the match prediction.

Sunrisers Hyderabad


The huge ground of Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad assures low scoring thrillers and the slowness of the pitch will see batsmen grind out runs rather than have a walk in the park. SRH has shown they are more than capable of chasing down huge totals, and their defending skills are next to none. Even when they lost to RCB the other night they were excellent throughout the chase until Williamson fell. The Kiwi skipper has been a revelation and people who say T20s are for power-packed players; think again. Dhawan has been in terrific form as well while Hales has looked good. SRH can look into their bench and give the young lads a go given they have secured one of the top two spots. Ricky Bhui and Tanmay Agarwal come at the back of excellent domestic season while foreigners like Jordan and Mehedi Hasan could also get a look in. Rashid Khan is an absolute delight, and KW may want to preserve him for the crucial matches ahead of them.

Bowling Line-up


Bhuvi may not play this match as well, and the way Thampi was thumped out of the park(sorry for the pun) it looks like KW will be looking for other seam options. However, Williamson is an excellent motivator and he may well give the young lad another bite at the cherry. Manish Pandey is finally getting into his rhythm so he will definitely play.

The key players for SRH have always been Williamson and Shikhar Dhawan. With the ball, there are few players better than Rashid Khan at the moment.

Playing 11 Vs KKR

Shikhar Dhawan/Ricky Bhui, Alex Hales, Kane Williamson, Manish Pandey, Deepak Hooda/Tanmay Agarwal, Shreevats Goswami, Rashid Khan/Mohammad Nabi/ Carlos Brathwaite, Siddharth Kaul/K Khaleel Ahmed, Sandeep Sharma, Basil Thampi, Chris Jordan.

Kolkata Knight Riders

KKR is 3rd on the Vivo IPL 2018 points table with 14 points but have a negative NRR (Net Run Rate), so losing this match will see them wait anxiously for MI, KXIP, and RCB results. Given MI and RCB both win their matches and KKR loses this one, it will be MI and RCB sealing the last two spots in the playoffs. Therefore, it is a no holds barred match for the Knights and they will bank on their resurgence.

Bowling Line-up

Dinesh Karthik will have a lot to ponder upon, but there should not be any changes given the way KKR bowlers have performed and Chris Lynn finally paying dividends. Shivam Mavi has shown his character during the RR match where he gave away 19 in his 1st overs but then finished with 1/33 in his 4. Prasidh Krishna is growing as well. Russell is DK’s go-to man when he needs wicket with Narine blowing hot and cold with the ball, but the Windies spinner is certainly making up for it with his exorbitant batting displays.


Batting Line-up

DK has been off the boil a little, and so has been Dre Russ, and the slow wicket of Hyderabad will not aid their cause. Nitish Rana has remained peripheral since his recovery and will look to get into the act. Kuldeep Yadav was extraordinary against RR and will be taking the charge with Chawla still recovering.

The key players for KKR would be Narine and Lynn with the bat, and Dre Russ and Kuldeep in the death overs. The bowling section will see Kuldeep Yadav spinning webs around the batsmen with Chawla out for today’s game. 

Playing 11 Vs SRH

Chris Lynn, Sunil Narine, Robin Uthappa, Shubhman Gill, Nitish Rana, Dinesh Karthik, Andre Russell, Kuldeep Yadav, Javon Searles/Mitch Johnson, Shivam Mavi, Prasidh Krishna.

Match Prediction: Who Will Win today?

KKR will be looking to neutralize the SRH bowlers till the 12th over with smart batting, and then go after them to ensure no dramatic middle order collapse. SRH will be looking to chase this game and bolster their batting order. KKR needs to win desperately and will give their everything in it, but SRH hasn’t been complacent either. Therefore, a 50-50 match on the cards. However, if you ask us personally SRH is favorites to win this one because first, they’ve got the home advantage, they’ve won 5 out of 6 matches this IPL.
