SRH vs KKR Probable Final Playing 11
The Sunrisers who have been bragging about their strong bowling unit fell into RCB’s trap last night. Having missed to perform against RCB, Shikhar Dhawan will be keen to hit out of the park against the Knight Riders. Manish Pandey returned to superb form against Bangalore and his fiery shots are likely to continue. SRH’s bowling unit needs to brace up and get going unlike the last couple of games. Basil Thampi, who now holds the record of conceding more runs, is likely to be replaced by Bhuvaneshwar Kumar. Rashid Khan’s spell with the ball will be a nightmare to the Knight Riders.
Probable XI: Alex Hales, Shikhar Dhawan, Kane Williamson (C), Manish Pandey, Shakib Al Hasan, Deepak Hooda/Yusuf Pathan, Shreevats Goswami, Rashid Khan, Bhuvaneshwar kumar, Siddarth Kaul, Sandeep Sharma
Players to watch out for: Rashid Khan, Kane Williamson
Kolkata Knight Riders
This game against Hyderabad is a must win for the Knight Riders to keep their playoff chances alive. The form of Sunil Narine, Chris Lynn at the top of the order is a huge benefit for KKR. Dinesh Karthik and Andre Russell in the lower middle order are good finishers for the squad. Shubman Gill could be promoted up for he had scored big at No.4. Robin Uthappa and Nitish Rana should buckle down and set the pace in the middle order. Kuldeep Yadav, who bagged 4 wickets in his last match, will be KKR’s confidante. Andre Russell has also been good with the ball. The squad is likely to be the same.
Probable XI: Dinesh Karthik (C), Sunil Narine, Andre Russell, Chris Lynn, Robin Uthappa, Shubman Gill, Kuldeep Yadav, Nitish Rana, Prasidh Krishna, Shivam Mavi, Piyush Chawla
Players to watch out for: Kuldeep Yadav, Andre Russell
