- Eliminater of IPL 10.
- Sun Risers will face Knight riders for qualifier 2’s berth.
- Chinneswamy will host the eliminator.
- Warner is the top scorer of the tournament with 604 runs.
- Bhuvaneswar kumar holds the purple cap with 25 wickets.
Journey of both the teams are quite similar. Both of them have started their season with a bang and slowed down in the middle stages and finally struggled to reach play offs. Both the teams are juxtoposed with 8 wins. Sunrisers have won more point, from the washed out game against RCB. So we cannot distinguish a clear winner among the two. Sunrisers, defending champions, look very strong in bowling department with the likes of siddharth kaul, Adil Rashid and Bhuvaneswar kumar. But, KKR’s batting seems to be powerful enough to counter it.
Head to Head
KKR and SRH have played against each other on 11 occasions. SRH lead the tally with 7 games in their kitty. SRH trail by 4 wins. In this edition ,both the teams won against each other once.
Yuvraj Singh, Who didn’t play in last game, Is yet to prove his fitness. So Vijay Shanker, who justified his inclusion, might get an another opportunity. Ashish Nehra is completely ruled out of the tournament with ankle injury. David Warner is strength in SRH’s batting. It can be seen as weakness as they are relying too much on him. Not enough contributions are coming from Dhawan, Moses Henriques and Yuvraj singh. Kane Williamson might strengthen their batting ,but at an expense of all-rounder.
Sunil Narine opening the batting is a huge boost for KKR. This move will denitetely make their batting line up look deeper. Chris Woakes is uncertain to play this game. All hopes are on Kuldeep Yadav, Sunil Narine and Umesh Yadav.
- SRH to win.
- David Warner to top score.
- Back team chasing first.
