The Knights have Chris Lynn and Sunil Narine at the top to offer them a brisk start followed by a stable middle order in the form of Robin Uthappa, Dinesh Karthik, Shubman Gill, and Nitish Rana. Not to forget the hard-hitting Jamaican, Andre Russell who seems to be a genuine death bowler too. If Robin Uthappa settles down to score a couple of big knocks, then KKR might look dangerous with their batting ability. It would well be a tossup between Andre Russell and his fellow mate from West Indies Carlos Brathwaite to find a place in the playing 11.
It could well be a surprise if both the all-rounders find a place, as it would increase the X factor in the game. Many combinations would be going around in the mind of skipper Dinesh Karthik. With plenty of options to chop and churn, he would take his time in the competition to have a settled unit. Individually his performance in leading the side and playing a sheet anchor role throughout the innings would be expected from his fans. On the other hand, the return of David Warner would boost the Sun Risers Hyderabad.
It would psychologically be a decisive factor and an opportunity for the Aussie opener to prove his mettle before the World Cup that commences. With Warner’s entry, the overseas berth in the Sunriser’ camp seems to be worked out well. Although there has been no official confirmation from the Sunrisers camp on David Warner opening the innings for Sun risers, the Kiwi batsman Kane Williamson would be a mainstay of the batting unit.
As per horary astrological indications, the opening batsman who takes the first strike would be a potential weapon for KKR against the Sun Risers Hyderabad. The No.3 and as well as the No. 4 batsman would predominantly try to reinstate the side into the competition. There might be a mini-collapse which could well be tackled by the skipper. The Sunrisers Bowling would be on the money. Although two of their bowlers would face the heat, one of the all-rounders would be a key candidate to offer a stiff competition against KKR.
On the other side, the SRH’s opening batsman would be the key to chasing the total posted by KKR. The SRH’s middle order would be well balanced. On the other hand, the bowlers from KKR would offer a stiff fight back. While SRH would perform well, the chances fall in favor of the Kolkata Knight Riders. The team led by Dinesh Karthik would turn the table in their favor in this encounter. Let us hope for a cracking encounter in the first of the weekend clash.
