Kolkata Knight Riders will be up against Sunrisers Hyderabad in the 61st match of IPL 2022 at the MCA Stadium in Pune. Both Kolkata Knight Riders and Sunrisers Hyderabad are level on 10 points and are fighting to make it into the top four spots on the table.
It has been an underwhelming season for Kolkata Knight Riders, who have shown a bit of resurgence over the past few matches. They have won two of their last three games and Shreyas Iyer and co will be hoping to sustain the recent uptick in form. They are now 7th in the table, with five wins and seven losses this season and have a net run rate of -0.057.
Kolkata Knight Riders would up against five-time champions Mumbai Indians in their most recent game. Although Jasprit Bumrah bowled out of his skin and picked up his maiden five-wicket haul in T20s, KKR ended up having the last laugh in the game. Their bowling unit, led by Pat Cummins, Andre Russell and Tim Southee, also ran riot and bundled out MI for just 113, thus securing a 52-run victory.
Meanwhile, Sunrisers Hyderabad also level on points with Kolkata Knight Riders, but have a game in hand. They are just above their opponents on the points table and still trail the top four places by four points. What’s even more concerning for SRH is the fact that they have lost all of their last four matches.
Sunrisers Hyderabad suffered a massive 67-run loss at the hands of Royal Challengers Bangalore in their most recent encounter. Faf Du Plessis’ fantastic knock of 73 not out took RCB to a comfortable total of 192. SRH lost wickets at regular intervals during the run-chase and despite Rahul Tripathi’s five-wicket haul, they were bundled out for only 125.
The two sides have faced each other on 22 different occasions in the IPL. Kolkata Knight Riders have the upper hand with 14 wins while Sunrisers Hyderabad have eight victories to their name. KKR have also won four of the last five matches between the two sides.
Wins: Kolkata Knight Riders 14, Sunrisers Hyderabad 8
Last 5 matches: Kolkata Knight Riders 4, Sunrisers Hyderabad 1
This might be a difficult result to predict. Both sides have been inconsistent this season and haven’t lived up to their potential. While Sunrisers Hyderabad were on a mean streak of form, they are currently on a downward spiral and have lost their last four matches. Confidence is expected to be low in the camp, which might work in favour of Kolkata Knight Riders who are experiencing a resurgence in form. Check out our SRH vs KKR prediction to know more about these sides.
Kolkata Knight Riders have seen some top-class performances from individuals like Umesh Yadav, Andre Russell, Shreyas Iyer, Sunil Narine, and Pat Cummins. However, the entire side hasn’t gelled well as a group and they have been let down in various departments.
Sunrisers Hyderabad are expected to turn towards captain Kane Williamson and Abhishek Sharma at the top of the order. The likes of Rahul Tripathi, Nicholas Pooran, and Aiden Markram are also capable of hitting the big shots. Umran Malik’s frantic pace makes him an exciting watch while Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Kartik Tyagi have been reliable.
Tim Southee has bowled immensely well in IPL when called upon. He has scalped 12 wickets in seven games and has an average of 16.25. He has also bowled at a spectacular economy rate of 7.22.
Andre Russell, Shreyas Iyer and Sunil Narine could end up being in contention for the man of the match award. From Sunrisers Hyderabad, Rahul Tripathi, Abhishek Sharma, Nicholas Pooran and Bhuvneshwar Kumar could be key.
Andre Russell has proven to be the saviour for Kolkata Knight Riders time and again. That hard-hitting, inexplicable batting prowess has been on display. Russell has smacked 281 runs at an average of 35.13 and has a jaw-dropping strike rate of over 183. He has also taken 14 wickets so far this season, including a four-wicket-haul.
The last time these two sides met each other, Rahul Tripathi proved to be the saviour for Sunrisers Hyderabad and even won the Man of the Match award. Tripathi has scored 308 runs in 11 matches at an average of 38.50. He has a strike rate of 164.71 and would love to get one over his former franchise once again.
