6:41 PM (ACTUAL)
Must-Win Game for KKR!
Both teams lost their last matches, Kolkata Knight Riders lost to Punjab Kings in a close encounter, while SunRisers Hyderabad saw a 6-wicket loss against Chennai Super Kings, where MS Dhoni’s last ball six made headlines. They both faced failed at bats as their mid-level squad hasn’t done much since the season resumed in the UAE. KKR skipper Eoin Morgan has had a poor run with the ball so far this season as SRH dropped their former skipper David Warner and brought in England opener Jason Roy in the squad that performed well against Rajasthan Royals. This is a game you have to win for KKR when you consider the playoff scenarios. SunRisers have nothing to lose as they are already out of the tournament, but they will be keeping an eye on individual performance ahead of next year’s mega auction.
