KKR vs SRH Match Preview

Kolkata Knight Riders will take on Sunrisers Hyderabad in the 3rd match of the IPL 2024. The match is scheduled to take place at Eden Gardens in Kolkata on 23rd March 2024.

KKR struggled last season without their full-time skipper Shreyas Iyer. Nitish Rana led the side and they ended at the 7th spot on the points table with 6 wins in 14 matches.

SRH has also struggled in the last season as they finished at the bottom of the table with just 4 wins. They have roped in Pat Cummins to lead the side and all eyes will be on them for the upcoming season with a new captain and new approach.

Let’s take a look at the detailed pitch report for the 3rd match between KKR and SRH.

KKR vs SRH Pitch Eden Gardens

In the last season, 7 matches took place at Eden Gardens and we saw the pitch changing its behaviour in the middle of the season. The first 3 matches were won by the team batting first and after that the pitch started favouring the chasing team.

This is overall a batting surface as the ball comes to the bat nicely. The outfield is quick which leads to easier boundaries. As the pitch deteriorates, it also starts helping the spinners due to grip.

The average innings score is around 165 and the par score will be 185. The toss winner is likely to bat first and defend the score.

KKR vs SRH Weather Report IPL 2024

The weather report shows thunderstorms in the evening forecast for Kolkata on Saturday. Some rain is expected but it is going to be clear as the day proceeds. The temperature will be around 28-30°C and the humidity levels are expected to go above 70% in the late evening.
