Tonight’s match between Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Kolkata Knight Riders is going to be an interesting one, as few players joined and left in both the teams.
SRH in this case has lost Washington Sundar, the only mystery spinner the team has. As he’s a reliable middle-order batsman too, his injury leaves a significant hole in SRH. Well, they do have Shreyas Gopal and Jagadeesha Suchit though, but they aren’t good enough to bat at No.7, which is a need of the hour considering KKR’s bashing bowling lineup in both spin and pace departments.
KKR on the other hand is well versed with their line-up, and even removing some of them makes it stronger too! Ajinkya Rahane and Niteesh Rana haven’t been able to click in all the matches that happened till now, and having Rasikh Salam isn’t that necessary, considering the team’s already having enough bowling.
Thus, they may try adding another batsman to strengthen the batting lineup, especially the top order, where replacing Rahane with Aaron Finch is good. In this case, Sam Billings will be replaced by Sheldon Jackson.
With these conditions, here’s what the teams may look like tonight;
