Sunrisers Hyderabad will clash against Kolkata Knight Riders in the first match on super Sunday, being played at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad.

After the loss against Royal Challengers Bangalore in the last match, Kolkata Knight Riders have now lost four matches on the trot and would be itching to bounce back.

In the last match played between KKR and Sunrisers Hyderabad, KKR won again by six wickets. They have also beaten Sunrisers thrice out of the last four matches played at this venue. However, SRH have been good at their home ground in this season and have won three of the last five matches played here.

Hyderabad made a couple of changes to their playing XI after the loss against Delhi Capitals and brought in Yusuf Pathan and Shahbaz Nadeem in place of Abhishek Sharma and Ricky Bhui. They are expected to stick to their winning combination.

David Warner and Jonny Bairstow would be their key batsmen while Rashid Khan would lead their bowling attack.

Kolkata Knight Riders would be fretting over the fitness of Andre Russell who has been their top player in this season. Chris Lynn and Sunil Narine will start the proceedings for the team while Dinesh Karthik and Shubman Gill will bat in the middle order. Sunil Narine and Kuldeep Yadav would be their lead bowlers.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams.

Sunrisers Hyderabad- David Warner, Jonny Bairstow (wk), Kane Williamson (c), Vijay Shankar, Yusuf Pathan, Deepak Hooda, Rashid Khan, Shahbaz Nadeem, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Sandeep Sharma, K Khaleel Ahmed

Kolkata Knight Riders- Sunil Narine, Chris Lynn, Robin Uthappa, Nitish Rana, Dinesh Karthik (c)(wk), Andre Russell/Carlos Brathwaite, Shubman Gill, Piyush Chawla, Kuldeep Yadav, Prasidh Krishna, Harry Gurney
