Now this is match between 1st and 3rd position teams, i.e. KKR and SRH.
KKR is leading the tournament. Gambhir is an amazing leader. He is leading from the front, playing fantastic innings. He has surely been the most valuable player in KKR.
Sunil Narine could very well open the batting. No surprises there. Maybe Knight Riders should also consider opening the bowling with him, against two left-handed Sunrisers openers. While David Warner has scored a decent 67 runs off 50 balls against Narine, Shikhar Dhawan has only managed 31 runs off 30 balls.
Coming to last year champions SRH, their players are in form. Shikhar Dhawan and Warner build a good partnership. They smash the ball very nicely. Bhuvi on the other hand is presently a leading wicket taker in the season.
Sunrisers are the only side yet to lose a home game this season so that is a favourable situation for SRH.
Sunrisers Hyderabad 1 David Warner (capt), 2 Shikhar Dhawan, 3 Kane Williamson, 4 Yuvraj Singh, 5 Moises Henriques, 6 Naman Ojha (wk), 7 Deepak Hooda, 8 Rashid Khan, 9 Bhuvneshwar Kumar, 10 Ashish Nehra, 11 Siddarth Kaul
Kolkata Knight Riders 1 Gautam Gambhir (capt), 2 Sunil Narine, 3 Robin Uthappa (wk), 4 Manish Pandey, 5 Yusuf Pathan, 6 Suryakumar Yadav, 7 Colin de Grandhomme, 8 Chris Woakes, 9 Nathan Coulter-Nile, 10 Kuldeep Yadav, 11 Umesh Yadav
Watch out for
He is not disappointing the spectators. As promised Harsha to deliver blaster inning in this season, he is fulfilling his promise very well. He is making runs with a very high strike rate.
He is the player who leads from the front. He plays exceptionally well at their home ground. He is very consistent player, he will surely be a player to watch for.
