IPL KKR vs SRH, Match 49: Possible Playing 11 of Kolkata Knight Riders


KKR Playing 11: The Kolkata Knight Riders will play their 13th fixture of the IPL 2021 against Sunrisers Hyderabad. This will be the must win game for them to qualify for the playoffs.

The team could not win their last league match against Punjab Kings, and failed to defend the total of 165 runs. The batters started well, with Venkatesh Iyer and Tripathi scoring 67 and 34 respectively. Then Nitish Rana contributed in the middle, but the team could not finish well. In the 2nd half, they tried well but the opposition proved to be better than them in the end and chased down the score in the last over.

Team News

  • The team is positioned 4th in the points table with 5 wins in 12 fixtures.
  • The team is expected to make 1 changes for this match.
  • No injury issues reported by the KKR team management.

KKR Playing 11 (likely)

Kolkata Knight Riders won’t do any change unless Andre Russell or Lockie Ferguson are fit to play, as the rest of the team is playing decent and Morgan’s form with Gill is a concern for the team. Tim Seifert playing at that position is not a correct decision, and Ben Cutting/Shakib Al Hasan could be a better option, until the time, one of the players get fit and make their way to the XI. While Lockie can make a comeback in the place of Tim Southee, if he recovers from the injury. The contribution by spinners will be crucial and they are the main players in the XI, along with Venkatesh and Rahul in the batting department.
