Who will win today match

Unlike last year, Sunrisers Hyderabad will want the explosive duo of Jonny Bairstow and David Warner to play their respective aggressive natural game to provide a brilliant start at the top with Kane Williamson, Manish Pandey and Kedar Jadhav also playing a crucial role in the batting department. The trio of Bhuvneshwar, Sandeep and Natarajan makes SRH a potent fast bowling unit with Rashid Khan as a wicket-taking spin option. On the other hand, Kolkata Knight Riders will certainly depend on the likes of Shubman, Rana and Shakib to do well at the top with Morgan, Karthik and Russell handling the finishing duties while Harbhajan, Cummins, Mavi and Chakravarthy will be their key bowlers. It is expected to be a crackerjack contest between two quality sides. In our Dream 11 Today Match Prediction we back Sunrisers Hyderabad to win this match.

Fantasy Cricket Tips, Captain & Differential Pick

Captain Options:

David Warner: Sunrisers Hyderabad captain David Warner led his side from the front having scored 548 runs from 16 games at an average of 39.14 which included 5 half-centuries. Warner is also the only player to amass more than 500 runs in the six consecutive IPL seasons.

Shakib Al Hasan: Shakib Al Hasan will certainly be a key player for the Kolkata Knight Riders in this match with his sensational abilities both with the bat and ball. In 63 IPL matches, Shakib has scored 746 runs and has also picked up 59 wickets at an economy of 7.46.

Differential Picks:

Andre Russell: With an IPL-career strike-rate of more than 180, Kolkata Knight Riders’ explosive all-rounder Andre Russell has the ability to dismantle any bowling line-up in the shortest format of the game. In 74 IPL matches, he has smashed 1517 runs at a phenomenal strike-rate of 182.33 and has also taken 61 wickets.

Rashid Khan: Afghan leg-spinner Rashid Khan has been an amazing wicket-taking prospect for Sunrisers Hyderabad in the recent years. In 16 matches last year, Rashid picked up a total of 20 wickets at an impressive economy of just 5.38.
