Kolkata Knight Riders (Match Odds – 1.90):


Nitish Rana’s team came from nowhere to win. Rinku Singh batted brilliantly to lead his team to a three-wicket victory over Gujarat Titans that fans will remember for years. The team will be buoyed by back-to-back victories. They will be cheered on by a large crowd. Rana will look to capitalize on this momentum and improve the team’s position on the points table.

Rahmanullah Gurbaz must bat well at the top and form a solid partnership with N Jagadeesan. Venkatesh Iyer delivered a solid knock against the Titans, and he, like Rana, must add runs. Rinku Singh would look to build on his previous performance by adding quick runs down the order with Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, and Shradul Thakur.

The bowling attack took a beating in the previous game, and they need better spells from Umesh Yadav and Shardul Thakur with the new ball. Narine and Varun Chakaravarthy are important bowlers for the team and must perform well. Suyash Sharma has looked in good form, and he and Lockie Ferguson must keep the scoring under control.

Full Squad:

Nitish Rana (c), Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Venkatesh Iyer, Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Shardul Thakur, Lockie Ferguson, Umesh Yadav, Tim Southee, Harshit Rana, Varun Chakravarthy, Anukul Roy, Rinku Singh, N.

Sunrisers Hyderabad (Match Odds – 2.00):


After two straight losses, Aiden Markram’s team finally found form in the last game. They dominated the Punjab Kings with the ball and the bat, winning by an 8-wicket margin. They face a hot side, and Markram expects a spirited performance from his batsmen. They don’t have a good record at Eden Gardens and will need a miracle to win.

The team has the highest opening wicket stand of 27 runs in three games. Mayank Agarwal, along with Harry Brook, must score runs at the top. Rahul Tripathi hit the winning run in the previous game, and he will need to add runs in the middle order alongside Markram and Heinrich Klaasen. The lower middle order will need big hits from Washington Sundar and Marco Jansen.

Because the KKR batsmen have been in excellent form, their bowlers will be under pressure in this game. To put the team in a strong position, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Marco Jansen must take early wickets. Mayank Markande is causing problems for batsmen, and he needs to perform well in the middle overs. For the team to win, T Natarajan, Umran Malik, and Sundar must keep the pressure on the batsmen.

Full Squad:

Aiden Markram (c), Abdul Samad, Rahul Tripathi, Glenn Phillips, Abhishek Sharma, Marco Jansen, Washington Sundar, Fazalhaq Farooqi, Kartik Tyagi, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, T. Natarajan, Umran Malik, Harry Brook, Mayank Agarwal, Heinrich Klaasen, Adil Rashid, Mayank Markande, Vivrant Sharma, Samarth Vyas, Sanvir Singh, Upendra Yadav, Mayank Dagar, Nitish Kumar Reddy, Akeal Hosein, Anmolpreet Singh
