Kolkata Knight Riders are at No 7 in points table, with 5 wins in 12 matches and it is looking they are going away from playoffs race. In last match against Mumbai Indians, finally KKR openers made a 50 run-partnership for 1st wicket. Venkatesh Iyer was on charge in previous match with the bat. Shreyas Iyer, Nitish Rana and Rinku Singh are among runs. Andre Russell has did some brilliant finishing in few matches.
Although, KKR batting has been “average” this season as opener batsmans hasn’t fired at all and with the bat they haven’t scored big total.
Bowlers have shown some good form in last few games specially in last match against Mumbai Indians where they bundled out them for just 113 runs while defending 166. Tim Southee and Umesh Yadav are looking in fine form. Sunil Narine is economical. Russell is looking wicket-taker.

Sunrisers Hyderabad has lost 3 back-to-back games. Both batting and bowling units are looking inconsistent except 1-2 players. With the bat, Rahul Tripathi is showing consistency. Aiden Markram and Nicholas Pooran are also in fine form. Kane Williamson has a very poor run this season and his form has hurt SRH being a senior and most experienced player.
Bowling of SRH this year is not looking extraordinary as compared to other seasons. T Natarajan is best bowler for Sunrisers Hyderabad this season, but after his injury bowling has looked below average, although SRH has tried likes of Sean Abbott, Karthik Tyagi etc. Umran Malik has leaked many runs in last 3 matches and his economy in last 3 matches is above 12.
Match is going to be very interesting for fans and very important for both the teams. Problems are going to be arise more for team which will loose.
