Kolkata Knight Riders Team News

Skipper Eoin Morgan was involved in a flash point with Delhi Capitals’ spinner Ravichandran Ashwin earlier in the week when the latter opted to take a run after a throw came in from deep and deflected off his batting partner Rishabh Pant.

The incident has continued to burn on social media over recent days, with the cricket world divided on the issue – but Morgan could do without the distraction. You could argue the drama around the incident impacted the Kolkata Knight Riders’ disappointing defeat to the Punjab Kings last time out.

He and his team needs to be entirely focused on what is a must-win match. I don’t see there being any changes to the line-up.

KKR Likely XI

Shubman Gill, Venkatesh Iyer, Rahul Tripathi, Nitish Rana, Eoin Morgan (capt), Dinesh Karthik (wk), Sunil Narine, Tim Southee, Lockie Ferguson, Prasidh Krishna, Varun Chakravarthy

Sunrisers Hyderabad Team News

Followers of the Sunrisers Hyderabad franchise will be left wondering what might have been after the arrival of Jason Roy inspired them to only their second victory of the competition against the Rajasthan Royals earlier in the week.

Normal service was resumed last time out though – a crushing defeat to the table-topping Chennai Super Kings condemned them to yet another defeat.

David Warner was dropped for the game against the Super Kings – will he be back in the fold here? Will his absence affect the Kolkata Knight Riders vs Sunrisers Hyderabad betting odds? His form has been so chequered of late that I can’t see him starting.

SRH Likely XI

Jason Roy, Wriddhiman Saha, Kane Williamson, Priyam Garg, Abhishek Sharma, Jason Holder, Abdul Samad, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Sandeep Sharma, Siddarth Kaul.

Venue & Conditions

Three of the last four teams batting first at the Dubai International Stadium have gone on to make over 160 runs – and on only one of those occasions was the total enough to win the game. The Dubai pitch has maintained a competitive feel to it throughout its stint in the IPL – expect more of the same here.

Kolkata Knight Riders vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Head-to-Head

The Knight Riders dominate the Head-To-Head record between these two sides, having won 13 of the 20 completed contests. Despite that, the Sunrisers actually have a better batting average in this fixture, averaging 156.4 to the Knight Riders’ 151.6.

I don’t place a huge amount of importance on Head-To-Head records when formulating my Kolkata Knight Riders vs Sunrisers Hyderabad betting tips, but there must be some kind of psychological edge awarded to the Knight Riders off the back of this record.

Kolkata Knight Riders vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Toss Prediction

The Knight Riders dominate the Head-To-Head record, but it’s the Sunrisers who come out on top in the battle of the coin-flips!

They have won 11 of the 20 calls between the two. The toss will be crucial here for both side’s ambitions – and the Sunrisers will want to reverse a recent trend in which they last their last two coin flips.

I’m backing the Kolkata Knight Riders vs Sunrisers Hyderabad toss winner to go in favour of the Knight Riders.

Recommended Bet: Back The Knight Riders @ 1.63 with Pure Win

There is a lot riding on this for the Knight Riders. It’s very tight in the race for the two remaining playoff spots, with the other two already sewn up by the Chennai Super Kings and the Delhi Capitals.

The Royal Challengers Bangalore also look to have done enough to get 3rd, which leaves just one spot between four teams.

In Eoin Morgan they have a calm leader and a finisher that embraces situational pressure, but he’s going to need some help from his big guns!

Ultimately, the Knight Riders will have enough to win here and pour pressure on their rivals. I’m placing my match winner bet with Pure Win – they are industry-leaders in terms of pre-match and in-play online cricket betting offering.
