Kane Williamson will take his men to Eden Garden as Sunrisers Hyderabad will take on Kolkata Knight Riders in the second of the two matches scheduled in the 2018 Indian Premier League (IPL) on April 14.
The Knight Riders have kickstarted the 11th edition of the domestic T20 league in India under the new leadership of Dinesh Karthik. They started the campaign with a comfortable four wicket victory over Royal Challengers Bangalore at home.
KKR were on the course of clinching their second win as they posted a mammoth target of 203 runs against Chennai Super Kings. Unfortunately for the Kolkata-based franchise, MS Dhoni led side were successful in chasing the target, courtesy of explosive batting from Sam Billings down the order. The Super Kings sealed a five wicket victory with one ball to spare.
