Online Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction IPL 2019- Kolkata Knight Riders v Sunrisers Hyderabad
The second match of the 12th edition of the Indian Premier League would be played between Kolkata Knight Riders and Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Both teams qualified to the playoffs last years - in fact Sunrisers Hyderabad ended as the runners up. It would be a great encounter, keeping in mind the quality players that both teams possess. The match will be played at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata which hands the home advantage to the Dinesh Karthik led KKR.
Chris Lynn and Sunil Narine will open the batting for KKR with Robin Uthappa and Shubman Gill following them. Dinesh Karthik will be in the role of the finisher, followed by Andre Russell.
The team is likely to go with Prasidh Krishna and Lockie Ferguson as their premium pace bowlers while Piyush Chawla, Sunil Narine and Kuldeep Yadav will be their frontline spinners. Narine has been a big hit with the bat as well in recent times and scores a quickfire 20-30 on most occasions which gives a launching pad to the side.
David Warner is expected to return for Sunrisers Hyderabad and open the batting along with Wriddhiman Saha. Skipper Kane Williamson will likely bat at one drop. The team also has three talented all-rounders in Vijay Shankar, Yusuf Pathan and Mohammad Nabi who will play a part with both bat and ball. Siddharth Kaul and Bhuvneshwar Kumar will lead SRH's pace attack.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams.
KKR: Chris Lynn, Sunil Narine, Robin Uthappa, Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana, Dinesh Karthik (c)(wk), Andre Russell, Carlos Brathwaite/Lockie Ferguson, Piyush Chawla, Kuldeep Yadav, Prasidh Krishna
SRH: David Warner, Wriddhiman Saha, Manish Pandey, Vijay Shankar, Yusuf Pathan, Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Sandeep Sharma, Siddarth Kaul
