Weather conditions and pitch
All-rounder Washington is set to miss the match after splitting the webbing between his thumbs and the first finger in the game against GT. Jagadeesh Suchith or leg spinner Shreyas Gopal could be his replacement.
Rahul Tripathi is doubtful, too; after getting his hamstring pulled and having to retire from the innings, Kane Williamson updated on his injury that it is not a major concern, and he might make a comeback; if not, then Abdul Samad or Ravikumar Samarth will be put his place.
For SRH, there are no injury concerns, they will deploy their same starting XI.
Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR): Venkatesh Iyer, Ajinkya Rahane, Shreyas Iyer (Captain), Sam Billings (Wk), Nitish Rana, Andre Russell, Pat Cummins, Sunil Narine, Rasikh Salam, Umesh Yadav, Varun Chakravarthy.
Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH): Abhishek Sharma, Kane Williamson (c), Rahul Tripathi, Aiden Markram, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Shashank Singh, Shreyas Gopal, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Marco Jansen, Umran Malik, T Natarajan
Kane Williamson has been the instrumental player for SRH and a great captain who has kept SRH’s morale high in this tournament, and he deserves to be in this fantasy team. Young opener Abishek Sharma has been instrumental and he looks like he is in the groove, we expect a big inning from him.
Natarajan has been the most lethal bowler in IPL in past years. He has been a surprise package for SRH and balanced their bowling department as SRH have the best bowlers currently. Andre Russell is the most prominent batsman over the years for the KKR; he has been the most crunch player in the IPL; in just a few games for KKR in IPL 2022, he has hit seven sixes which says a lot about his batting prowess.
SRH vs KKR Fantasy XI
Captain vs vice-captain
Both the teams have quality players on their payroll, and it will be a high-octane match as SRH has the best bowlers and batters, the most balanced team in IPL. While KKR lacks in the bowling department, it will have to take up a notch in this contest.
SRH will want to continue its winning streak and reach play-offs. On the same line, KKR are also aiming for the same target. At the moment, SRH are the most complete team and they are likely to continue their winning run.
