Head to Head (overall)
Head to Head (in UAE)
This match promises to be one match that will have a serious impact on the league standings going forward in the tournament. With both teams fighting it out to earn the 4th playoffs spot, this encounter promises to be an entertaining one.
In terms of team selection, KKR has many things to worry about. They were really out of the place in the last two matches against RCB and MI. With playoff chances still intact KKR would need a fightback to earn their spot. Despite the failures, the batting line-up is expected to be retained. They may also bring in Narine back in place of Green and may also replace Prasidh with Nagarkoti. But if Narine is still to be left out, then they can try out Lockie Ferguson and bring back Kuldeep in place of Prasidh and Green to strengthen their bowling a bit.
As for SRH, not many changes are expected. They are expected to retain the same team.
KKR Playing 11: Shubman Gill, Rahul Tripathi, Nitish Rana, Eoin Morgan, Andre Russell, Dinesh Karthik, Pat Cummins, Lockie Ferguson/ Chris Green, Shivam Mavi, Varun Chakravarthi, Kuldeep Yadav/ Kamlesh Nagarkoti
SRH Playing 11: David Warner, Jonny Bairstow, Manish Pandey, Kane Williamson, Vijay Shankar, Abdul Samad, Priyam Garg, Rashid Khan, Khaleel Ahmed, T Natarajan, Sandeep Sharma
Expert free tip for Fantasy cricket and IPL betting tips
Abu Dhabi is the lowest scoring ground among all three grounds used in IPL 2020. Considering the stats of the previous matches, it is better to bat first on this pitch. The pitch has traditionally helped both seamers and spinners equally. Anything above 180 should be easy to defend.
If Kolkata Knight Riders bats first: 170-180
If Sunrisers Hyderabad bats first: 150-160
Players who are expected to perform well as per Dream11 Prediction.
KKR- Shubman Gill
Gill is a classical stroke maker who has all the shots in his book. Expect him to continue his good run and score big in Abu Dhabi.
SRH- David Warner
David Warner is one of the most consistent batsmen in IPL history. With his team desperately needing quite a few wins under their belt, he is expected to step up.
Other Prominent options: Eoin Morgan, Rahul Tripathi, Kane Williamson, Jonny Bairstow
KKR- Varun Chakravarthi
This is quite an unusual pick, but this man had been doing full justice to the job at his hand. But with Narine doubtful, he should be the man in charge to restrict the flow of runs in the middle over and to take crucial wickets at regular intervals, he should be your wild-card choice for fantasy tournaments.
SRH- Rashid Khan
The spin magician is in the form of his life. As for IPL betting tips, he is a sure shot bowler to invest your money in.
Other Prominent options: T. Natarajan, Sandeep Sharma, Shivam Mavi
SRH- David Warner
KKR- Eoin Morgan
Player of the Match
Eoin Morgan/ Shubman Gill
For KKR to win this match, either of these inform batsmen should step up. One of these two is our prediction for the ‘Player of the Match’ award.
