A very important match for both Kolkata Knight Riders and Sunrisers Hyderabad is scheduled to play today as both sides are set to meet in the eliminator match of Indian Premier League 2017. M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru to host this SRH vs KKR eliminator match from 8:00 PM IST.
KKR made possible chances to of getting knocked out from the tournament from their own mistakes as if they managed to beat Mumbai in their last league match, they would have played first qualifier. But now things are change and team has to play according that.
No doubt Kolkata Knight Riders have got tremendous season and their batting has been sensational. Shikhar and Warner are the top run scorers in the 10th edition of Vivo Indian Premier League. Hence both these players will be crucial. Henriques, Yuvraj have played some gorgeous innings throughout the tournament to help team to win some good matches. Expectations will definitely be higher from these two in tonight’s big crunch game.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Rashid Khan, Siddarth Kaul and Mohammed Siraj have been the superstars for Orange Army. These bowlers have taken wickets as well as restrict the opposition from scoring runs. If Ashish Nehra makes his way tonight, it would have been great for Sunrisers.
On the other side, Kolkata will definitely look not to repeat mistakes in their batting when they face off title defenders tonight. However Narine has provided some top class and firing starts in the competition, I still believe Gambhir should come to open with Lynn. Both Lynn and Gambhir are gonna be key batsmen in the eliminator of IPL 2017 against SRH.
David Warner (captain), Kane Williamson, Yuvraj Singh, Vijay Shankar, Ashish Nehra, Naman Ojha, Deepak Hooda, Abhimanyu Mithun, Shikhar Dhawan, Rashid Khan, Ben Cutting, Brinder Singh Sran, Tanmay Agarwal, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammad Nabi, Ben Laughlin, Mustafizur Rahman, Bipul Sharma, Pravin Tambe, Mohammed Siraj, Siddarth Kaul, Ricky Bhui, Eklavya Dwivedi, Chris Jordan, Moises Henriques.
Kolkata Knight Riders
Gautam Gambhir (captain), Robin Uthappa, Yusuf Pathan, Chris Lynn, Rovman Powell, Manish Pandey, Ankit Singh Rajpoot, Sheldon Jackson, Trent Boult, Piyush Chawla, Sunil Narine, Shakib Al Hasan, Sayan Ghosh, Chris Woakes, Umesh Yadav, Kuldeep Singh Yadav, Rishi Dhawan, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Suryakumaar Yadav, R. Sanjay Yadav, Colin de Grandhomme, Rishi Dhawan, Darren Bravo, Ishan Jaggi.
Kolkata Knight Riders looks much balanced side with depth in batting meanwhile SRH is missing the batting depth. Hence KKR are favorites to win and they have got 55 percent winning chances over Sunrisers Hyderabad in the SRH vs KKR eliminator match of Vivo IPL-10.
M. Chinnaswamy pitch is not been so much batsmen supportive this year and ball is not coming nicely to the bat. Out field is very fast. Hence we can expect a good match today. it’s gonna be good contest between bat and ball. The projected score in Bengaluru is 170 around.
