SRH will be hoping to make sure that they are high on confidence even after a loss in the last game against CSK whereas KKR must surely be riding high on confidence after an amazing victory against the Rajasthan Royals.
Both teams have seen their captains leading from the front as Kane Williamson has been phenomenal with the bat throughout this IPL whereas Dinesh Karthik has taken up the role of a finisher and has more often than not been very successful at it.
KKR won the last meeting between these two sides and are in a good run of form. SRH started off the campaign brightly and were the first to qualify for the playoffs.
KKR definitely have the batting to tear any bowling apart in this IPL and on the other hand we have SRH who have dominated most of the IPL because of their bowlers.
Hyderabad’s problem has been their batting which is heavily reliant on skipper Kane Williamson, the current ‘Orange Cap’ holder with 685 runs at 57.05 average.
Their latest defeat will hurt them the most as they had their match in the pocket with Chennai struggling at 113/8 inside 18 overs chasing 140 but Williamson’s strategy to keep an over from Carlos Brathwaite at the death backfired.
