SRH vs KKR Match Prediction & Analysis

Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders produced one of the most single-sided encounters of this season with Mumbai Indians emerging on top. That win took Mumbai Indians to the top of the points table and are set to take on bottom-dwellers Kings XI Punjab in two days.

Kolkata Knight Riders, on the other hand, are hovering in the middle of the points table and another loss here will likely push them out of the current top-four slots. Their next assignment in the tournament is against Sunrisers Hyderabad, who too are struggling with the problems similar to those the Knight Riders have. A win here for Sunrisers here will take them to the fourth spot, displacing Kolkata Knight Riders. The two teams are set to lock horns on 18th October at Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium, Abu Dhabi.

Team Previews

Sunrisers Hyderabad

With Kane Williamson playing a brilliant role in the middle-order, Surisers Hyderabad seems to have everything sorted with their batting lineup. However, their biggest dilemma is still going to be their bowling unit, which hasn't really looked impressive ever since Bhuvneshwar Kumar was ruled out of the tournament. Barring T Natarajan and Rashid Khan, almost everyone has struggled to bowl at the death and that has perhaps been the biggest reason for Sunrisers' position.

Despite an inconsistent bowling attack, however, the Sunrisers have done reasonably well. Largely because of their superior net run-rate, they are currently placed at the fifth spot on the points table, winning three matches from eight. Their net run-rate of 0.009, which is best amongst the similarly placed teams, would give them a sense of comfort, but they would ideally want to get a few more wins behind them.

Another dilemma the Sunrisers will be having is to deal with the temptation to play Mohammad Nabi. Nabi is known to thrive in these conditions and with the experience that he has, Nabi can be a match-winner for them. Having said that, the dynamics of Sunrisers Hyderabad are such that pushing any overseas player out of the playing eleven will not really make sense.

Being batting heavy at the top, Sunrisers Hyderabad have thrived more while defending the totals. They have a decent new-ball and middle-overs bowling attack that has worked wonders so far for them. Hitting Rashid Khan out of the park can be difficult for even the best in the world and Khan's form will certainly add to the team's confidence. Against the Super Kings, Sandeep Sharma was brilliant at the top and his probing accuracy could yet again bring success for the Sunrisers.

Going by the performances and the magnitude of defeats, Sunrisers Hyderabad have looked better than the Knight Riders in the tournament so far. The major reason for that has been a powerful opening pair, which is something the Knight Riders have lacked. Jonny Bairstow and David Warner have been severe at the top and a successful innings for either of them has more often than not resulted in a win for the Sunrisers.

Although the Sunrisers do not appear to be an intimidating team by any means, they have a pretty well-balanced team on paper. Responsible performance by their youngster has added to their confidence. They'd need their skipper to lead from the front in this upcoming match and if Warner can do that, there aren't many bowlers in the world that can stop him.

Kolkata Knight Riders

If there's one team that is immaculately balanced on paper, but still hasn't performed to its potential - it is KKR. With four wins and as many losses to their name, the Knight Riders have been the prime example of inconsistency in the tournament so far. While we have seen glimpses of individual brilliance from their batsmen, the Knight Riders have failed to click as a unit.

With the change in leadership, there was expected to be a bit of instability and that was apparent in their performance against Mumbai Indians as well. Going by the recent performances, Kolkata Knight Riders have arguably been the most vulnerable team. They've blown hot and cold and the frequent changes to their playing eleven haven't helped either.

Perhaps the biggest reason for their lackluster performance in the tournament so far has been the incredibly slow starts they've been getting in the powerplays this year. Sunil Narine was dismal at the top-order and was replaced with Rahul Tripathi. Apart from one good innings, Tripathi hasn't really been able to play the role he was asked to do. Shubhman Gill has been very slow to get off the blocks and the other batsmen have perished to add impetus to the KKR's innings. The problem of losing too many wickets too quickly is hurting them badly and they'll need to find solutions to that quickly.

Even though KKR does not have too many options, we might see a drastic change at the top of the order if their openers do not quickly fix the issue of slow starts. Besides, Nitish Rana has been dismal in the tournament so far and with the top-three doing poorly, there's only so much that the middle order can do. Eoin Morgan played well against Mumbai Indians and will once again be the backbone of Kolkata's batting lineup.

While Kolkata Knight Riders' bowling has done well, we have seen a few questionable decisions in that department as well. Despite playing on surfaces where wrist-spinners are thriving, it makes little sense to keep Kuldeep Yadav out of the playing eleven. Kolkata Knight Riders have regularly persisted with four fast bowling options and that hasn't really worked for them in crunch situations. To make their bowling attack a lot lethal, we might see Kuldeep Yadav or Lokie Ferguson coming in for Chris Green. Varun Chakravarthy has been KKR's stand-out spinner in the tournament so far and would be a dangerous man to deal with in the upcoming match as well.

On paper, there are only a few teams as well-balanced as Kolkata Knight Riders. Unusual tactics and not sticking to the game plans have so far been the trademark of Kolkata Knight Riders and those tactics have backfired more often than not. With every win carrying massive importance, we expect KKR to zero-in on to a consistent strategy and combination in their forthcoming matches. If they manage to get their strategy and combination right, KKR will be a tough team to handle in the matches to follow.

RA Tripathi, Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana, Dinesh Karthik, Eoin Morgan, Andre Russell, Pat Cummins, Lockie Ferguson, Kuldeep Yadav, Shivam Mavi, Varun Chakravarthy.

SRH vs KKR Toss Prediction

The recent trend in the tournament has been to bat first winning the toss and more often than not, that decision has resulted in success. The upcoming match is a day game and the fact that the team batting second will have to bat on a worn-out pitch and have no assistance from the dew adds to the advantage of the team batting first. Besides, no team will want to have all of their eleven players first up out in the scorching heat. For all those reasons, batting first after winning the toss will undoubtedly be the right decision here.

Read our guide on toss predictions to learn how we analyze and come up with our tips.

Pitch and Conditions

UAE is generally a hot place and owing to that the continuous usage, the pitches are getting weary and slower with every passing match. Besides, batting here at this venue has been the most difficult out of the three in the tournament. While the batting has not been easy here, the margin of error for the bowlers has been small as well. Therefore, the bowlers have resorted to length deliveries and that has brought about decent success. For spinners, bowling slow with be the key. This is a day game and batting second will be difficult as there will be no dew to assist the team batting second. Considering the factors stated in mind, the team batting first should feel happy if they get anything over 165 on this surface.

SRH vs KKR Betting Tips

It's not often that we see David Warner and Eoin Morgan come up against each other in this tournament. While David Warner has proved his mettle in the Indian Premier League over the years, Eoin Morgan hasn't really had a long stint in this tournament. Make no mistake, though - Eoin Morgan is one of the best in the business in the limited-overs cricket. In the upcoming match, both captains would want their players to contribute a lot more than they've been doing so far. While the Sunrisers seem to be a fairly settled unit, Kolkata Knight Riders have plenty of problems to solve. On paper, the Sunrisers are a more experienced team, but considering the nature of the surface and the team combinations of the two sides, betting on a Knight Riders' win should be the way to go in this upcoming contest.

    Eoin Morgan - Total Runs

    Over 21.5 at 1.83

    Visit

While Kolkata's batting hasn't done particularly well, Eoin Morgan has consistently scored well for them. He is the most experienced batsmen in the entire KKR lineup and the added responsibility of captaincy will likely bring the best out of him. Eoin Morgan should whistle past a personal score of 21 runs.

One thing that has kept Kolkata Knight Riders far from their best is poor batting in the powerplay. More often than not, they have ended up losing too many wickets, which has slowed them down considerably. The Sunrisers, on the other hand, are likely to start with the foot on the pedal right from the word go. The Sunrisers Hyderabad are certainly the better candidates to emerge on top after the end of the first six overs.

    Match Total Runs

    Visit

It is one of the most difficult grounds to bat on in the tournament and we don't expect that it will change in the upcoming match. Besides, the two teams aren't really known for their explosive batting lineups, and scoring over a par score will be a humungous challenge. Keeping that into consideration, there is a high probability that the match total will not exceed 331 runs.

  1. Dafabet

    10Cric

    Home Team - Top Batsman

    Manish Pandey at 5.00

    Visit

Manish Pandey is one of the better batsmen in the Sunrisers' lineup, but he hasn't really managed to kick-on after the start he had to the tournament. His skills of playing spin will likely come in handy in the upcoming match. The fact that you are getting 5x your money for him to be the best batsmen from Sunrisers' camp certainly sounds enticing. Bet on Pandey to be the top-scorer for Sunrisers Hyderabad.
