Post Match Summary KKR vs SRH, Match 49

Shubham Gill was instrumental in guiding Kolkata Knight Riders to a six-wicket run over Sunrisers Hyderabad on Sunday evening.

KKR came into the match hoping to boost their chances of qualifying for the playoffs and needed a win make that happen. Eoin Morgan’s side restricted SRH to a mere 115 in 20 overs, and while the men in purple seemed to struggle a bit, Gill’s 57 from 51 ensured his side made it through.

Kolkata Knight Riders Innings

  • KKR’s NRR (net run rate) is the best among all the contenders for that coveted fourth spot
  • Playing his first game of the second phase of the IPL, Shakib Al Hasan finished with impressive figures of 4-0-20-1.
  • Spin trio of Shakib, Narine, and Chakravarthy ended with combined figures of 12-0-58-3

Sunrisers Hyderabad Innings

  • SRH saw Wriddhiman Saha dismissed on the second ball and Jason Roy followed soon after
  • Kane Williamson gave Sunrisers a hint of momentum but failed to inspire them beyond a mere 26
  • SRH’s bowlers did well defending their total, with debutant Umran Malik particularly impressive

Match Prediction – KKR vs SRH, 49th Match IPL 2021 – Who Will Win Today’s Match?

Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) take on Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the 49th match of the 2021 season of the Indian Premier League (IPL). While KKR are still in contention for the playoffs, SRH are looking to avoid the wooden spoon.

KKR have been playing exciting cricket in the UAE leg of the tournament. However, two losses from their last three games have dented their chances of making it to the top four. The KKR top-order has fired and they have laid the foundation more often than not. However, the middle-order has been a touch wobbly and the form of skipper Eoin Morgan is a concern.

Meanwhile, the spin duo of Sunil Narine and Varun Chakravarthy have been excellent and the overseas pacers have fared well. Indian pacers like Prasidh Krishna, Sandeep Warrier and Shivam Mavi have been tried and none of them have really nailed down their spot nor performed consistently.

With two games to go, KKR need to win both their remaining encounters and they also need to hope that MI lose at least one more game.

On the other hand, SRH are out of the race for the playoffs. They have lost as many as nine games in this season and have just two wins to their name. The Indian bowlers’ form has been a big worry, especially that of Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Be it in the powerplay or at the death, the ace Indian pacer has looked out of sorts.

SRH haven’t stepped up with the bat either. In the second phase of the IPL, they have finished with a total of less than 140 in three out of the four games. In the other game, they chased down 165 and that was the only game they won in this second half.

Team News

Kolkata Knight Riders

KKR will be sweating over the fitness of Andre Russell and Lockie Ferguson. While Russell may be out for longer, Ferguson could make a comeback as it was a niggle that he suffered a couple of games ago. Moreover, Tim Seifert might make way for Shakib Al Hasan which gives KKR a proper fifth bowling option.

Sunrisers Hyderabad

Khaleel Ahmed has missed a few games due to injury and there hasn’t been any update on him. Despite the loss, SRH may not make a lot of changes to their line-up that played against CSK.

Predicted XI

Kolkata Knight Riders: Shubman Gill, Venkatesh Iyer, Rahul Tripathi, Eoin Morgan (c), Nitish Rana, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Shakib Al Hasan, Sunil Narine, Shivam Mavi, Tim Southee/Lockie Ferguson, Varun Chakravarthy

Sunrisers Hyderabad: Jason Roy, Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Kane Williamson (c), Priyam Garg, Abhishek Sharma, Abdul Samad, Jason Holder, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Siddarth Kaul, Sandeep Sharma

Key players

Venkatesh Iyer: Venkatesh Iyer has been very impressive and has brought a lot of energy with both bat and ball for KKR in this UAE leg. The left-handed top-order batsman has amassed 193 runs in five innings and has a strike-rate of 141.91.

He has also recorded a couple of half-centuries and has been giving KKR some solid starts with the bat. Plus, KKR have been banking on his medium pace as well and he has taken three wickets too.

Jason Holder: Jason Holder has been quite consistent in this second half of the IPL 2021. The West Indian all-rounder has been excellent with the ball and has returned with nine wickets from just five games at an economy rate of 6.85.

Moreover, Holder has looked good with the bat in the lower middle-order. He has chipped in with 66 runs in four innings and has a strike-rate of 137.50.
