David Warner’s Sunrisers Hyderabad will take on Dinesh Karthik’s two-time champions Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL 2020. Watch KKR vs SRH live.
Former champions Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kolkata Knight Riders will both be chasing their first wins of the Indian Premier League season when they face off at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Saturday.
Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan-owned KKR had fallen to a heavy 49-run loss to defending champions Mumbai Indians in their first fixture. Captain Dinesh Karthik will hope his batsmen find form soon.
Explosive hitter Andre Russell came too low down the order to have an impact when chasing a sub-190 target. KKR will likely allow him to face more balls, especially with the cushion of having Pat Cummins, who struck a few lusty blows against MI, at No. 8.
KKR’s opponents Sunrisers Hyderabad also have a similar middle-order issue to sort out in IPL 2020. Watch KKR vs SRH on live streaming.
SRH rely on the firepower of their openers, captain David Warner and Jonny Bairstow. The middle-order could not cope after Warner got out early, so SRH may look to bring in the experienced Wriddhiman Saha into the playing 11.
SRH will also be missing all-rounder Mitchell Marsh, who was ruled out of IPL 2020 with an injury and could replace him with another reliable hand in New Zealand captain Kane Williamson.
