MATCH HIGHLIGHTS IPL 2020, KKR (145/3 in 18 overs) Beat SRH (142/4) by 7 wickets

It’s a game between two currently bottom-placed teams. Two-time champions Kolkata Knight Riders will face 2016 winners SunRisers Hyderabad on Saturday. So far, both have played one match each and lost. After a dismal show against defending champions Mumbai Indians in their campaign opener, KKR will face the David Warner-led SRH, who went down to Royal Challengers Bangalore in their tournament opener. With the likes of Andre Russell and Eoin Morgan in their middle-order, KKR have the capability to overhaul any given target. However, the duo failed to capitalize against Mumbai and the Dinesh Karthik-led KKR ended up on the losing side. Despite the losses, both the sides are well aware of each other’s strengths and will surely not take the contest lightly.

On the other hand, Sunrisers Hyderabad middle-order instability was exposed in their opening match against RCB. Opener David Warner, too, had a flop show with the willow and it was his partner Jonny Bairstow, who showed resistance in the middle with his 43-ball 61. However, after the England batsman departed, the entire SRH team fell like a pack of cards, barring Manish Pandey, who chipped in with valuable 34 but failed to take his team to victory. Also, Vijay Shankar and Priyam Garg disappointed after a poor show in the middle-order and along with the SRH team management, Warner would equally be concerned about it. SRH will miss the services of all-rounder Mitchell Marsh as the 28-year-old has been ruled out of the remaining part of the tournament after injuring his ankle during the game against RCB.
