The 61st match of IPL 2022 is between a team that had seen five consecutive losses (Kolkata Knight Riders) and a team that had seen five straight wins (Sunrisers Hyderabad). Yet, both are in the second half of the points table with just ten points and a negative NRR.
The first fixture between these two teams was won by SRH, with Rahul Tripathi and Aiden Markram banging KKR bowlers to chase down a 170+ target in 18 overs. And with both the teams being in a crucial stage, a win tonight for either team will help maintain their race to playoffs.
With their star allrounder Pat Cummins returned home due to a hip injury, KKR may bring back Sam Billings to the squad to strengthen the middle-order batting lineup. Or, they could go with just three foreign players.
SRH, on the other hand, seemed to have the best pace bowling line-up but was thumped by all in the last four matches. May they work on this to have a better result tonight. A head-to-head battle between these two put KKR on top, with 14 wins out of 22 matches played.
