Qualifier 2 SRH vs KKR

This match will decide the second finalist for this season’s IPL. The team that will win will play the mighty CSK at Wankhade. Both the teams had their own story. SRH has been one team dominating the first half of their league matches with some fantastic batting and unbelievable bowling attack. But in the last few games, it looks like they have lost the groove. They are failing in one or the other department. Contrarily, KKR has been a team fighting all odds to reach here. They were in and out of the Play-offs contender list till the last match they played. Let’s take a look at the probable playing 11!

Sunrisers Hyderabad

It is hard to point out, what exactly, but something is wrong with the team. They are doing everything right; still, they have struggled in the last few games. This is the match for which they have worked so hard. As a team who reigned on top of the table in the whole tournament, it would be a disappointment, if they lose now. They will have to improve their middle order batting a little so that their bowling can get a chance to defend. In the previous match as well they fall short of 15 odd runs. Any change would be out of the question now.

Kolkata Knight Riders

This team, if they make it to the finals will have a saga to tell. Everyone questioned their selection, when they chose to go with young players over experience. They had a new captain who had just come in limelight. It was a humongous task for the captain and team to achieve. But they fought together and here they are, only one win away from the final. The team looks well balanced so they might not want to make any changes. But, their top order will have to perform if they want to win this match against SRH.
