In the 10th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), the current winner Team Sunrise Hyderabad, who are due to play in the 14th match played at Kolkata’s Eden Gardens Stadium, will have to face tough challenge before the Kolkata Knight Riders and return to their winning track. The opening two matches of the league, Sunrisers, captained by David Warner, started well, but in the third match, the Mumbai Indians beat the team to prevent the hat-trick of winning.
Despite the defeat against Mumbai, the performance of the initial two matches of Sunrisers can not be ignored. While there are batsmen like Shikhar Dhawan, Moises Henriques, Yuvraj Singh, along with Warner, there are some great players like Rashid Khan, Ashish Nehra, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and others in the list of his bowlers.
On the other hand, there is a depth in Kolkata batting. Captain Gautam Gambhir is in great form. At the same time, the batsmen like Manish Pandey, Suryakumar Yadav and Robin Uthappa strengthen their batting attack. He has Kuldeep Yadav, Piyush Chawla and Sunil Narine, matchprediction.in who, with the help of stopping the run, also keep the wickets of the opposition team. The responsibility of fast bowling attack will be on Rajput, Umesh Yadav, Chris Woakes.
This was his 11th consecutive victory over his home ground, which started in 2012 with a title win. Kolkata would want to reverse the defeat in the eliminator last season.
Figures are once again telling the story of Kolkata. In the nine matches so far between the two teams, Kolkata have won six and Hyderabad has won three.
Uncertainty about KKR opener Chris Lynn, who is suffering from shoulder injury, remains intact. In such a scenario, Captain Gambhir can once again start the innings with ‘Miraculous’ Sunil Narine. However, it will also depend on the conditions of the match as Robin is an experienced open batsman in the form of Uthappa. Seriously in severe form.
He has equaled David Warner’s record in the IPL against the Punjab in the 33rd, and currently wearing the Orange Cap. In the last two games, there is consistency in Manish Pandey’s batting. In the middle Yusuf Pathan and Suryakumar Yadav strengthen batting.
Before Umesh Yadav’s brilliant return to fast bowler Umesh Yadav, Kolkata’s bowling has suddenly come to an end in the two matches. Yadav took four wickets against Punjab Chris Woakes also proved his worth by taking two wickets in the end. In Saturday’s match, all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan, instead of Trent Boult, can be considered.
As strong as Hyderabad’s batting, bowling is equally strong. The team includes skipper David Warner, Yuvraj Singh and Shikhar Dhawan, and bowlers like Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ashish Nehra and Rashid Khan. Bhuvneshwar has seven runs in three matches, Rashid has taken six wickets. Kane Williamson is also the world’s all-rounder. Warner and Dhawan are in good form.
Hey eyes on Bhubaneswar Kumar are a spectacular spin bowler with Hyderabad team, in such a situation Bhuvneshwar Kumar will be watching the team. By the way, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Rashid Khan have put together 13 wickets in their lap, it seems that it will not be difficult to save any score for the Hyderabad team. Bhuvneshwar Kumar has proved to be the most economical bowler in the last over so far. Apart from this, Ashish Nehra and Mushtafizur Rahman can prove to be crucial for the team.
