The second game of the Indian Premier League’s 12th edition will see Kolkata Knight Riders face SunRisers Hyderabad on Sunday.
Kolkata Knight Riders finished in the third spot in the regular season and proved to be a side who can chase down any target. Their bowlers were absolutely terrific all campaign long and helped out the batting department. This year, the focus will be on some of the young Indian batsmen who will be looking to make a name for themselves, in order to assert themselves to be in the picture of being selected. Captain Dinesh Karthik too has to do a lot and be the mature one in order to take this team to the finals of the tournament, a feat they almost achieved last year.
Meanwhile, SunRisers Hyderabad are the runner’s up of the IPL 2017 and managed to do so without the services of banned David Warner. This franchise boasts of being the most balanced side in the league and it is clear that they have enough firepower to defeat anyone. With the likes of Kane Williamson, Rashid Khan, Yusuf Pathan and Wriddhiman Saha, the batting lineup is as solid as it comes. Aussie opener Warner makes his return to the team this season, and he makes them even more formidable of opposition to going up against for a side who has title ambitions.
