The teams clashing today have had a forgettable first game of the season as they were thumped quite convincingly in the end by their opposition. Kolkata Knight Riders are all set to clash against the Sunrisers Hyderabad in what appears to be a very close contest. David Warner comes wounded from the past game as he missed out but it will be more interesting to see how the Kolkata batting line up will be set in this fixture.
KKR vs SRH Venue & Conditions
Match 8 of the Indian T20 league will be played at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. The dew factor might come into play and the team winning the toss will elect to bowl first however there has been only one game where the team chasing has one in the tournament so that hardly decided the fate of the game

KKR vs SRH Gameplay
David Warner will win the toss today and we have a gut feeling he is going to bat first since he averages 43 against Kolkata so he will be raring to go against them. Bairstow, Warner, and Williamson will dominate the 1st 10 overs after which Kuldeep is expected to get a few breakthroughs today since the chinaman has a wonderful record against this team. Shivam Mavi will again be amongst the wickets while Cummins is expected to get whacked again.
When Kolkata come back they should have learned a lesson from the last game and made changes in their batting order. The target will be close to 170 so expecting Morgan & Dre Russ to bat up the order and finish the game off in a successful run chase. Bhuvi might cause some problems at the start for Gill & Narine and Rashid will be amongst the key bowlers for today.
