SRH vs KKR Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2020

Sunrisers Hyderabad will take on Kolkata Knight Riders in the 35th match of the Indian Premier League. The match will be played on the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi and is scheduled to begin at 2:00 PM local time.

With more than half the tournament done and dusted, every game from now stands of utmost importance. Sunrisers Hyderabad this season has been on the receiving end on most occasions. To be fair, they’ve not justified the skills they possess.  Individually, all the players have performed decently but as a team they’ve been fairly disappointing. Apart from Rashid Khan, every other player has lacked consistency and that has been the major cause of their downfall. Also, Hyderabad has shown that they’re prone to collapse under pressure. They haven’t won a single game chasing this season. 

KKR, on the other hand have done well to win 4 out of 7 games but they’ve not hit their peak as of yet. If you look at KKR, there are too many loop holes that teams might look to exploit. For them, batting has been a major cause of concern. Also, the bowling doesn’t look that strong without Sunil Narine. Skill wise they’re on par with the best teams but their performance has been hot and cold throughout the tournament.  KKR need to be on their toes if they’re beat SRH

SRH vs KKR Toss Prediction

Toss will be crucial for the teams as the pitch at Abu Dhabi has been very difficult to bat in the second innings. Winning the toss and batting first is the most feasible option.

Weather Report

The weather as usual will be dry and humid.

Pitch Condition

The pitches in all the three venues are getting slower with each game. Batting second on that pitch can turn out to be a suicidal decision.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Team News & Playing 11

SRH Team News

Sunrisers Hyderabad lost their last game to Chennai Super Kings but we don’t think that David Warner will be eager to make too many changes in the playing XI. Vijay Shankar, however, could miss out to Abhishek Sharma or Abdul Samad. Other thing that David Warner can consider is to bring Wriddhiman Saha in for Vijay Shankar and Mohammed Nabi for Jonny Bairstow. However, this scenario is highly unlikely.

SRH Key Players 

  • David Warner: David Warner is SRH’s top scorer with 280 runs in 8 games. He is one of the more experience batsmen in the SRH camp and will be responsible to give his team a solid start.
  • Kane Williamson – Kane Williamson played a gem of an innings against CSK on a tough wicket. He is one of the top players in the SRH batting line up and will be looking to continue his good run against KKR.
  • Rashid Khan – Rashid Khan has been outstanding for Sunrisers. Not only he’s picking up wickets in the middle overs, he’s very economical too. He went wicket less against CSK and would be eager to come back hard against KKR.

SRH Team Form

With 3 wins and 5 losses, Sunrisers have been struggling in the tournament.

Kolkata Knight Riders Team News & Playing 11

KKR Team News

Kolkata Knight Riders is really struggling with their batting in IPL 2020 but it doesn’t seem that they’ll alter much with the playing XI. However, one change that we can expect is Lockie Ferguson replacing Pat Cummins, who is going through a pretty lean patch as a bowler. 

KKR Key Players

  • Shubhman Gill– Shubhman Gill has been the most consistent batsman for KKR. He has scored runs in almost every game and can be backed to come good against SRH
  • Eoin Morgan– Eoin Morgan played a gem of an inning against MI, helping his team post a respectable total. He looks in good touch and might come up the order, ahead of Dinesh Karthik in his next match. He is expected to continue his good run against Hyderabad too.
  • Andre Russell – Andre Russell hasn’t fired in this IPL but he’ll always be an X factor for KKR. He is a match winner can single handedly win a match for his team. KKR want his big man to bail them out of trouble. 

KKR Team Form

KKR are coming back from a humiliating loss against MI and will be looking to pull themselves up in their next league game.
