It all started with David Warner’s ban from international cricket. The orange army after facing a huge loss in terms of their previous captain David Warner, played two matches under the Kiwi skipper Kane Williamson, which they won comfortably thereby making a mark in the early stages.
Similar situation on the other hand with no Gautam Gambhir in the team, KKR started their journey with a win until CSK produced a last-minute thriller back on Wednesday.
This game number 10 is all set to start today in the popular Eden Gardens, with KKR having one big advantage of being the home side. No doubt, KKR will play as today’s favourites, but this Hyderabad team after winning back to back matches will certainly make it tough for the home side.
KKR is considered to have a strong batting unit, where on the other side SRH has the best bowling attack in this edition of IPL. With Russel getting back into form and Rashid Khan spreading his magic again, this battle of bat and bowl will be very interesting to watch. With a perfect combination of Spin and Pace, both the teams will try to apply their respective strategies against each other, not allowing the hard hitters to score in the power plays.
Talking about death over bowling, KKR performed poorly in this section with Vinay Kumar going for 17runs in the final over of the previous match against Chennai. SRH on the other side has performed exceedingly well in this division, with their supreme bowling attack. Both the teams will try to win the toss and choose to bowl considering a good chasing record in Eden gardens.
Possible changes for KKR might come in terms of Vinay kumar who will be replaced by Sivam Mavi, as stated by the head bowling coach. Moreover, SRH is likely to play with the same team as it is generating good results for the team.
It will be interesting to see Narine vs Rashid Khan in the start as one has proved himself as a lethal batsman while the other is currently the number one T-20 bowler.
The match starts at IST: 8pm
