Hello and welcome to the live cricket score and ball-by-ball updates of Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Kolkata Knight Riders, IPL 2015 Match 19 at ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium, Visakhapatnam on Wednesday. The double header fixture on April 22 will see David Warner’s SRH challenge Gautam Gambhir’s Knights in the home match starting at 4.00 pm IST. The fortunes of both teams is in contrast to each other with the home side winning one out of four matches while the defending champions have won three of the four matches played in IPL 8 so far. Kolkata would start as favourites in the match provided the heavyweights like David Warner, Shikhar Dhawan, Trent Boult from the opposite camp comes up with a blinder performance. Also Read: Gautam Gambhir, Trent Boult among 5 key players for SRH vs KKR clash.

Both the sides are coming from a contest against Delhi Daredevils (DD) but the results have been different. The Gautam Gambhir-led KKR’s most recent win came last night against the Delhi Daredevils, Hyderabad, on the other hand, lost to Delhi in their previous encounter and are currently lying sixth on the table with three losses and merely a win as yet. Check Out: IPL 2015 Schedule – All Match Fixtures and Complete Time Table of IPL.

Gautam Gambhir has been the batting mainstay for the Knights with three half-centuries hit so far in the eighth season of Indian Premier League. KKR’s biggest strength is the entire team chipping in with valuable contributions, something that is missing from David Warner’s Hyderabad side. The over dependency on the opening duo of skipper David Warner and Shikhar Dhawan is hurting SRH big time.

Despite the home side struggling, one cannot rule out the power of individual performance in Twenty20 cricket, where a single person on a given day can win a game. Hopes will be pinned on Warner and Dhawan to fire up front or their fiery pacers in form of either Dale Steyn or Trent Boult in company of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Praveen Kumar.
