Kolkata Knight Riders
In the current season, the 2-time IPL champion Kolkata Knight Riders started badly. This team had to face defeat by 4-time IPL winner Mumbai Indians by 49 runs. KKR’s explosive batsmen proved to be a complete failure, although Dinesh Karthik’s army got some relief from the bowling of Shivam Mavi and Sunil Narine.
In today’s match, the scope of change in the KKR team is very less, but Rinku Singh may get a chance in the team in place of Nikhil Naik. Rinku has done very well in the domestic season. This player living in Aligarh district of UP is also known as Pinch Hitter. It will be interesting to see in which batting order they get a chance.
Even though there is little hope of change in KKR, there can be a change in batting order. It is very possible that Dinesh Karthik can come to bat at number 3. Shubman Gill and Sunil Narine are all likely to get the opening.
Kolkata Knight Riders probable playing XI: Sunil Narine, Shubman Gill, Dinesh Karthik (captain and wicketkeeper) Nitish Rana, Eoin Morgan, Andre Russell, Nikhil Naik, Pat Cummins, Kuldeep Yadav, Sandeep Warrier, Shivam Mavi.
Complete team of Kolkata Knight Riders: Dinesh Karthik (Captain), Eoin Morgan, Nitish Rana, Rahul Tripathi, Rinku Singh, Shubman Gill, Siddhesh Lad, Ali Khan, Kamlesh Nagerkoti, Kuldeep Yadav, Lockie Ferguson, Pat Cummins, Famous Krishna, Sandeep Warrier, Shivam Mavi, Varun Chakraborty , Andre Russell, Chris Green, M Siddharth, Sunil Narine, Nikhil Naik, Tom Banton.
Talking about Sunrisers Hyderabad, this team lost their first match against RCB, Virat Kohli’s army had defeated David Warner’s Army by 10 runs. It is obvious that when both the teams have lost their first match, then both KKR and Hyderabad will be under pressure to get the first victory. Like KKR, the possibility of change in Warner’s team is quite low.
Sunrisers Hyderabad Possible Playing XI: David (Warner captain), Manish Pandey, Vijay Shankar, Johnny Bairstow (wicketkeeper), Mohammad Nabi, Priyam Garg, Abhishek Sharma, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Sandeep Sharma, T Najrajan, Rashid Khan,
