Warner and Bairstow start confidently
The ball isn’t coming onto the bat at a quick rate and therefore Warner and Bairstow are waiting till the last minute before selecting a particular shot. SRH: 6/0.

The Sunrisers Hyderabad bowlers have put pressure on the Kolkata Knight Riders batsmen throughout the innings, but Chris Lynn has fought his way through to the 14th over. He is batting on 44 runs from 40 balls with good support from Rinku Singh at the other end.
Nadeem misses a sitter
Rinku Singh pulls a delivery from Sandeep Sharma and Shahbaz Nadeem drops a sitter in the deep. He was too worried about touching the boundary and lets the ball go through his hands for a six.
Rashid Khan starts brilliantly
Rashid Khan couldn’t have asked for a better time to bowl in this match. The Kolkata Knight Riders are under the pump at the moment. The Afghanistan bowler concedes just five runs in his first over. KKR: 80/4 in 10 overs.
Karthik run out
Disastrous second run attempt by Dinesh Karthik! He was never going to make it. Vijay Shankar at mid-wicket throws the ball to Bairstow and the wicket-keeper breaks the stumps with Karthik miles away from the crease. Kolkata lose their fourth wicket as Sunrisers Hyderabad have complete control of the match.
Bhuvneshwar dismisses Rana
Bhuvneshwar Kumar induces an edge and Rana gets out caught for 11 runs. The Sunrisers Hyderabad are turning on the heat in Hyderabad.
Khaleel strikes again
After a poor start to the game, Khaleel has brought SRH right back into it as he picks his second wicket of the day. Gill hits the ball into the hands of the point fielder and he has to go for 3. The hosts are firmly on top at the moment . Nitish Rana joins Chris Lynn in the middle.
Good first over from Sandeep
Finally a good over for SRH as Sandeep Sharma stops the flow of runs and concedes just 5 singles off his first over. After a flying start, KKR don’t need to do something drastic as their run rate is quite high at the moment despite the fall of a wicket.
Gill joins Lynn
Subhman Gill has been promoted up the order as he comes out to join Chris Lynn in the middle. The last time he came up the order, he scored a brisk fifty and he will be hopeful of a similar impact in this clash.
Khaleel strikes in first over
Narine had hit a huge six over point and then back to back boundaries off Khaleel Ahmed’s first three deliveries. The left-arm pacer then hit back by bowling a slow ball which uprooted Narine’s leg stump. KKR lose their first wicket after a brisk start.
Four, SIX and six
Chris Lynn and Sunil Narine are now taking the attack to Shahbaz Nadim who came to bowl the second over of the innings. Nadeep bowled short to Lynn and he dispatched it for a boundary towards covers. Narine then hit the ball over mid wicket for the first six of the innings. On the last ball, Lynn too hit his first six of the innings down the ground. 18 runs off the second over.
Expensive first over
KKR openers are off to a good start as they score 10 runs to begin the proceedings. Lynn hit the delivery towards the off side for his first four of the innings on the third delivery and then Narine flicked the ball off his hips for a boundary towards square leg.
The players and officials are now making their way out in the middle and we are about to get underway here at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad. Chris Lynn and Sunil Narine are opening the innings for KKR. Bhuvneshwar Kumar has the new ball in his hand.

Player battle - Pandey vs Chawla
For all the hype and talent around Manish Pandey, he has not fired since 2018, which has forced the management to rest him. However, he could get a game against KKR and this is the match, where he should finally step up and make a statement. Now, his biggest threat will be Piyush Chawla - he has managed to score only 12 runs in 11 balls and has been dismissed once by the leggie. Another interesting battle is on the cards.
Player battle - Russell vs Bhuvneshwar
Well, Russell is on a rampage and it started back when SRH took on KKR at Eden Gardens earlier in the season. He absolutely tore into Bhuvneshwar Kumar back then and once again, this battle will be key to the proceedings of this match. In 8 balls bowled by Bhuvneshwar, Russell has smoked him for 23 runs and has not been dismissed even once. How will Bhuvi react in this match after the mauling will be an interesting watch.
Player battle - Lynn vs Rashid
The big-hitting batsman has got off to bright starts in a few games but has not been able to play an innings of note this season. KKR would want him to bat deep into the innings. However, his biggest worry will be Rashid Khan. Lynn has struggled to find his footing against the leg spinner as in 19 balls faced, he has only managed to score 18 runs and has been dismissed only once. Williamson could chuck the ball to Rashid early in the match to get the better of the Australian.
Player battle - Warner vs Narine
Two big names will be up against as soon as the powerplays and KKR would want Narine to get rid of Warner as soon as possible. The left-hander has been in roaring form this season and his record against the spinner is not too bad either. He has scored 120 runs off 76 balls and has been dismissed twice by Sunil Narine over the years and hence, this battle right at the top will have a massive bearing on the outcome of the match.
Russell wants change in batting order
“I think me going to bat early would definitely be a good thing for KKR. But with our make-up of the team, that’s a good answer.” The Windies cricketer has been in blazing form and is the leading six-hitter of this season with 39 to his credit. He also sits fourth in the rungetters tally with 377 runs at an average of 75.40 with an astonishing strike rate of 220.46.
How to stop Russell juggernaut?
“We could bowl someone like Rashid (Khan) or Sandeep (Sharma), who executes slower balls so well. Russell is playing well, no doubt but at the same time he is still human, he can still get out. If we can concentrate on what we do well, if are able to play the way we did against Chennai (Super Kings) the other day, and put on a complete performance together then we should be in a good place. The pitch has been brilliant here,” said Bairstow.
Bairstow defends team
“We have got some fantastic players in our middle-order and David and I have done a fairly good job at the top. There are players who are in the World Cup team. Yusuf Pathan’s records speak for itself. There is a reason why they have done so well in the last couple of years.”
SRH’s middle-order woes
The hosts too have concerns of their own, mainly their over-reliance on openers David Warner and Jonny Bairstow, who will be leaving at the end of the week to join England’s World Cup. When the opening duo has fired, SRH have done well but on other occasions the middle-order has let them down. The World Cup-bound Vijay Shankar is due for a big score and so is captain Kane Williamson.
Problems galore for KKR
A rampaging Russell and Nitish Rana almost pulled off a miraculous win on Friday night after the KKR top-order left them with too much to do in the death overs. Russell even questioned the team’s decision to send him lower down the order when the likes of Robin Uthappa struggled. There is little doubt that the KKR think tank will be working overtime to get back to winnings ways.
Both teams have eight points though SRH have played one match less. The hosts snapped their three-match losing streak with a win over table leaders CSK and KKR now need to do the same having lost their last four games.
