SRH vs KKR Match Preview
Like any other IPL edition, even this year as and when the matches finish; the margin of error for teams reduce. If you can't do well in your first five to six matches, it becomes really hard to bounce back and make it to the knock outs. Earlier you are focused to win, it's better for the future. With the same focus, Sunrishers Hyderabad face Kolkata Knight Riders at the Rajiv Gandhi International stadium in Hyderabad. Watch SRH vs KKR live streaming and scores on HotStar whereas live telecast on TV will be available on Sony Six, Sony ESPN and Sony Max in India.
The venue favors the chasing teams. 21 out of 34 matches have ended in favor of teams that have chased. So captain winning the toss may elect to bowl first. But he might also think the other way round due to the scorching heat here in Hyderabad. The temperatures are soaring high above 40 degree Celsius and at times it becomes unbearable to be on the ground.
SRH faced a lot of hammering at the hands of RCB in their last match. Absence of Nehra costed them a lot. Bhuvaneshwar got a good start but later none of the bowlers could really bowl well. One can also blame the batting friendly venue of Bengaluru. But overall the bowling was below par. Hopefully Mustafizur Rehman clicks for SRH today.
KKR would love to play Sunil Narine today. It would be a treat to watch Narine bowl in tandem with Hogg. SRH would be wary of these overs. Piyush Chawla may have to make way for Narine if Gambhir believes in having two quickies apart from Narine and Hogg in the team.
The home ground hasn't been a happy hunting ground for SRH. They have lost 13 out of the 21 matches they have played here.
KKR has a better record against Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL matches. Can SRH improve their stats against KKR today? Let's wait and watch. The next match for the day would be Mumbai Indians vs Gujarat Lions. We will get back to you guys with a preview in some time! Till then keep reading and watch the cricket live on HotStar.
