IPL 2023: SRH vs KKR, Match Prediction and more details

Hyderabad will play host to SRH vs KKR. It is the clash between the 9th and 8th placed teams. A win will be crucial for both teams.

Sunrisers Hyderabad were the winning side when the two sides clashed in Eden Gardens thanks to the first centurion of this season’s IPL, Harry Brook. Here is all you need to know before the SRH vs KKR clash.

Sunrisers Hyderabad has 6 points in 8 games. In their previous game, SRH won and ended their three-match losing streak. Mayank Markande has been a great addition to the Hyderabad team. Markande is the highest wicket-taker this season for the orange army. He has taken 10 wickets in just 6 games this season. Inconsistencies from batter have been the biggest reason for their current position at the points table. Since scoring a century against Kolkata Knight Riders in their previous encounter earlier this season, Harry Brook has scored 34 runs in four innings. His scores in the last 4 games are 9,18,7 and 0.

Kolkata Knight Riders like their opponent have 6 points in 8 games. KKR are 8th in the points table. Kolkata has been poor with the ball in hand. They have relied heavily on their spin trio of Varun Chakaravarthy, Sunil Narine and Suyash Sharma who is playing just his first season. KKR will expect good performances from 21-year-old pacer Harshit Rana. Even in their batting order, they have struggled to find regular performers. Their highest run-getter this season has been Rinku Singh, who has scored 270 runs in 9 innings.

SRH vs KKR Pitch Report

The pitch at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium has been one of the most balanced pitches in the season. The pitch allows swing early on and then favours the batters before spinners enter in the middle overs. The spinner could prove to play an important role on this pitch. Both sides have great spinners and will be vital for their team’s victory. The captain winning the toss could opt to bowl first and try to restrict their opponent for a low score.

SRH vs KKR Probable Playing XIs

Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH):

Abhishek Sharma, Mayank Agarwal, Rahul Tripathi, Aiden Markram (c), Harry Brook, Heinrich Klaasen, Abdul Samad, Akeal Hosein, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mayank Markande, Umran Malik

Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR):

N Jagadeesan, Rahmanullah Gurbaz (wk), Venkatesh Iyer, Nitish Rana (c), Rinku Singh, Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, David Wiese, Shardul Thakur, Harshit Rana, Varun Chakaravarthy

SRH vs KKR Probable Best Performers

Probable best batter

Rahmanullah Gurbaz:

Rahmanullah Gurbaz came back to the KKR side in their previous game and played a great knock. The Afghan keeper batter scored 81 runs in just 39 balls. He came into the side replacing an injured Jason Roy and grabbed the opportunity with both hands. If Jason Roy is fit to play then KKR would want to strike a balance which allows both these batters to play and potentially open the innings together.

Probable best bowler

Varun Chakaravarthy:

Varun Chakaravarthy could get difficult to deal with for the SRH batters. The spinner from KKR is the highest wicket-taker among the bowlers from both teams. A pitch that could potentially assist the spinners could help Chakaravarthy to get back amongst the wickets as he failed to pick a wicket in his last game.
