[IPl 2018 Qualifier 2] SRH Vs KKR Match Prediction, Analysis, Playing 11, Betting Tips and more. Who Will Win today?

The exciting season of IPL 2018 is almost at an end. We are just one step away from the big finale. The second qualifiers will decide who will face off against Chennai Super Kings for the title. The two teams in the second round are none other than SRH and KKR at Eden Gardens on 25 May. While KKR continues their hot winning form, SRH’s poor showing in recent weeks has left them vulnerable. A last minute wins to enter the top four and a strong outing in the first qualifier against RR has put KKR in the prime position against a weakened SRH. Let’s check today’s match preview, playing 11, pre-match analysis and prediction which will tell you which team has more chances of winning this Qualifier 2 match.

Sunrisers Hyderabad

The consistent team of the tournament had to endure a terrible time towards the end of the IPL 11 season. SRH have faltered and are on four matches losing streak. The team which was very well piped to win the trophy this year have a tough opposition in front of them. A poor middle order collapse has seen SRH lose out on matches.

Betting Line-up

The lack of form of the batsman to support the shaky middle order has hurt Sunrisers Hyderabad. Dhawan will look to return to his best after failing to score even a single run against CSK in the last match. Captain Kane Williamson and the coaches need to shore the batting line up to score big and actually give the bowling a chance to defend.

The middle order, Manish Pandey, Shakib Al Hasan and Yusuf Pathan need to get their heads back in the game to boost the batting. These players will be extremely vital against KKR. Apart from a scoring Kane Williamson, who leads the orange cap with 685 runs, the other batsmen need to up their game to stop a rampaging KKR. The inclusion of Carlos Braithwaite in the last match helped SRH propel to a decent score, as the big man scored 43 off 29 balls.



Undoubtedly the best bowling side of IPL 2018 has seen their lows in the recent matches. Although the line-up of Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Siddharth Kaul, Sandeep Sharma and Rashid Khan has paid the dividends, the leaking of runs has been a negative point. Braithwaite was brilliant with the bat, leaked valuable runs in the last match which allowed CSK to gain control. Bhuvi, Kaul, and Sandeep will need to restrict a daring batting line-up of KKR. Rashid Khan will be key for the bowling and on a turning Eden pitch.

Key Players to Watch

The bowling as always will be the key to SRH’s victory. The batting will also have to perform well in the match. Kane Williamson and Rashid Khan will play vital roles.

Predicted Playing XI

Kane Williamson, Shikhar Dhawan, Sreevants Goswami, Manish Pandey, Carlos Braithwaite, Shakib Al Hasan, Yusuf Pathan, Rashid Khan, Trent Boult, Siddarth Kaul, Sandeep Sharma.

Kolkata Knight Riders

The Kolkata Knight Riders are in a red-hot form and are steamrolling anyone in their path. Although they still have a few chinks in their armor, the entire team is functioning cohesively. The opening pair of Sunil Narine and Chris Lynn will again be vital for KKR. Although Narine had a disappointing game against RR, the spinner turned batsman will be looking to put forth a strong opening against a disciplined SRH bowling. Captain Dinesh Karthik will be the one to look out for as he has been the consistent performer in the KKR side. The youngsters Nitish Rana and Shubman Gill will also need to do the needful to score valuable runs. Andre Russell will be looking to explore his big hitting side against SRH at KKR’s home stadium.

KKR put in an impressive bowling display to restrict RR in the last match. The bowlers of KKR, Andre Russell, youngster Prasidh Krishna, Kuldeep Yadav and Piyush Chawla will have to exploit a struggling SRH batting order to restrict them. Sunil Narine will need to focus on his bowling also to make full use of the home pitch.

Key Players to Watch Out

Dinesh Karthik will be crucial against SRH and the likes of Chawla and Kuldeep Yadav will prove important to the bowling.

Predicted Playing XI

Sunil Narine, Chris Lynn, Robin Uthappa, Dinesh Karthik, Nitish Rana, Andre Russell, Piyush Chawla, Shubman Gill, Kuldeep Yadav, Jason Searles, Prasidh Krishna.
