Matchday 2 sees KKR take on SRH at the iconic Eden Gardens. KKR enjoy a 9-6 lead over SRH in head-to-head battles, and have only lost twice in seven matches against the Sunrisers at Eden Gardens.
A quick look at the probable playing XI before the predictions.
KKR Probable XI : Sunil Narine*, Chris Lynn*, Robin Uthappa, Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana,
Dinesh Karthik(c), Andre Russell*, Kuldeep Yadav, Piyush Chawla, Carlos Brathwaite*, Prasidh
SRH Probable XI : David Warner*, Jonny Bairstow*, Manish Pandey, Vijay Shankar, Yusuf
Pathan, Wriddhiman Saha, Mohammad Nabi*/Shakib al Hasan*, Rashid Khan*, Bhuvneshwar
Kumar(c), Siddarth Kaul, Khaleel Ahmed.
2018 Runner-up SRH begin this year without Kane Williamson, which is a huge psychological blow, given the kind of calming effect he has on the players during crunch situations. However, David Warner is back in the fray after serving his ban, and will be itching to redeem himself. SRH made a name for themselves last year defending ridiculously low totals and have been feared for their rockstar bowling line up. KKR more or less begin with almost the same playing XI as last year, and have a good number of uncapped players who have made a name for themselves in the domestic circuit. Carlos Brathwaite coming in provides good stability to the team.
Match Prediction – SRH to win in a gripping contest.
