IPL 2022, Kolkata Knight Riders vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Highlights: KKR bowlers claimed regular wickets and deflated SRH’s run-chase to register a comprehensive 54-run win. Umesh Yadav removed Aiden Markram for 32 runs while Russell dismissed Sundar and Jansen as SRH went seven wickets down in the run-chase vs KKR. Varun Chakravarthy dismissed the dangerous-looking Abhishek Sharma for 43 runs while Sunil Narine removed Nicholas Pooran for 2 runs. Andre Russell removed Kane Williamson for 9 runs to give KKR an early breakthrough but Abhishek Sharma continued with the scoring. Soon, Rahul Tripathi also departed to Tim Southee. SRH openers Abhishek Sharma and Kane Williamson gave their team a steady start in chase of 178 runs for a win vs KKR. Andre Russell hit Washington Sundar for three sixes in the final over to help KKR reach 177/6 in 20 overs vs SRH. Sam Billings and Andre Russell ushered the innings after Umran Malik struck thrice to dismiss Nitish Rana, Ajinkya Rahane and skipper Shreyas Iyer in quick succession to give SRH an upper hand in the game. Earlier, Ajinkya Rahane and Nitish Rana batted brilliantly together and counter-attacked the SRH bowlers after going one down. Marco Jansen got KKR their first breakthrough of the innings as Venkatesh Iyer dragged one onto the stumps to fall for 7 runs. KKR captain Shreyas Iyer won the toss and opted to bat first against Kane Williamson-led SRH. SRH will aim to end their four-game losing streak when they take on KKR in an Indian Premier League (2022) fixture at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune on Saturday. KKR, on the other hand, will look to capitalise on the momentum gained after winning vs Mumbai Indians (MI) in their previous IPL 2022 game. (SCORECARD)

Kane WIlliamson at the toss: “We have played on this surface the other day and we were looking to bat as well. Natarajan and Washington are back. Jansen is back in for Farooqi as well.We haven’t been quite at our best in the last few games. So we want to turn that around.”

Shreyas Iyer at the toss: “We will bat first here. If you see the record here, teams batting first have done well and batting first also suits us. Forced to make changes this time. Pat is injured, so Umesh comes in and Sheldon Jackson comes in for Sam. We came to the core strength we started with and we got a good start.”

    Toss – KKR win toss, opt to bat vs SRH

    KKR captain Shreyas Iyer has won the toss and has opted to bat first against Kane Williamson-led SRH 

  • May14202218:41 (IST)

    SRH Predicted XI vs KKR

    A struggling SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) will hope to end their four-game losing streak when they take on Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune on Saturday

    SRH have so far endured contrasting fortunes with four back-to-back losses after being on a high of registering five consecutive wins

    This could tempt captain Kane Williamson to bring back left-arm quick Marco Jansen in order to take early wickets against a strong KKR batting line-up

  • May14202218:39 (IST)

    KKR Predicted XI vs SRH

    Kolkata Knight Riders were dealt a heavy blow in the form of an injury that has ruled all-rounder Pat Cummins out for the rest of IPL 2022

    Cummins starred with the ball in their last match, a 52-run win over Mumbai Indians, and his absence would mean that their team balance takes a big hit when they take on SunRisers Hyderabad with an eye on keeping their playoff hopes alive

    With Andre Russell, Sunil Narine and Tim Southee having played the last match — and all of them likely to retain their places — it would open up a chance for KKR to bring in an extra batter, possibly in the form of Sam Billings

    This would see Sheldon Jackson potentially replaced by Shivam Mavi
