SRH vs KKR - IPL 2018 preview
The Knight Riders, who are sitting on the third spot with 14 points from 13 matches, are likely to be booted out of the tournament if they lose Saturday's outing in Hyderabad, due to their inferior Net Run Rate when to compared to that of Mumbai Indians (MI) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).
Nonetheless, KKR is heading into the encounter on a high note after having won back-to-back matches against the Kings XI Punjab and Rajasthan Royals on May 12 and 15, respectively.
Openers Sunil Narine and Chris Lynn were in fine form on batter-friendly wickets in the last two matches. Skipper Dinesh Karthik chipped in with crucial contributions and played the finisher's role to perfection.
However, the in-form KKR batting unit will be tested on what is expected to be a slow wicket at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad. The likes of Rashid Khan and Shakib Al Hasan have been quite effective at the venue throughout the season.
On the other hand, the Sunrisers would want to get back to winning ways before heading into Tuesday's Qualifier 1 at the Wankhede Stadium. It can be noted that Kane Williamson's men lost their last two outings against the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and RCB on May 13 and 17, respectively.
SRH's bowling unit was taken to the cleaners by both CSK and RCB. However, the return of Indian pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who was rested for their Bengaluru clash, will provide the much-needed firepower to their attack.
