SRH vs KOL Today Match Prediction Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Kolkata Knight riders Who will win Today 18 October

SRH vs KOL today match prediction: There is no going back for both these teams, or for any team for that matter. The playoff spot is at stake and both the teams are placed 4th and 5th in the points with just one win separating these two teams. KOL have won 4 out of their 8 while SRH have won 3 out of their 8 games. SRH lost to KOL in their previous meeting in the first leg of the competition in a convincing manner and they would want to redeem themselves in this meeting. It is also fair to say that KOL's most comprehensive victory in this season so far was against SRH.

SRH have a problem of plenty and their weak middle order is one of them. They just don’t have a power hitter in their middle order which is proving to be a decisive factor in their defeats. They badly need to reshuffle their batting order or bring in Mohammad Nabi who can be a 4 over bank with the ball.
Kolkata Knight Riders are fresh off after their humiliating defeat to Mumbai Indians and they would need some real confidence to turn it around after that kind of a loss. Their batting fell like 9 pins with Andre Russell and Dinesh Karthik carrying their bad form with them. The change of captaincy didn’t do any good to them.

SRH vs KOL Dream11 prediction for today’s match

In today IPL match prediction, let us analyze the strengths and weaknesses of both the teams
Strengths
Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH)
Although, the strike rate of David Warner is in question, he has been accumulating runs almost every game which is at least giving them some runs to play with. Manish Pandey is in good form but he is throwing his wicket away after getting good starts. Rashid Khan has been impressive as ever.
Kolkata Knight Riders (KOL)
They looked absolutely clueless in their previous game against Mumbai Indians who had high express pacers but SRH lack an express pacer which might play into the hands of KOL. Their captain Eoin Morgan has showed good form with the bat.
Weaknesses
Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH)
Their 5th bowling option and the weak middle order is a glaring weakness. The form of Jonny bairstow who is giving them quick starts but not converting them into big knocks is hurting them time and again. The inexperienced bowling attack were exposed by CSK at death. They have a lot of headaches at the moment.
Kolkata Knight Riders (KOL)


Their best batsman in the previous game was Pat Cummins and the Australian quick was bought for his bowling prowess which, he is yet to showcase. The form of Andre Russell who scored 500 runs at an average of 50 plus in the previous year has been the biggest disappointment of this IPL.

David Warner: He is getting runs consistently though, the strike rate is questionable, runs are all that matters for a fantasy player. He has 284 runs in this season so far.
