KKR vs SRH MyTeam11 Preview
Kolkata Knight Riders stuttered in their opening match against defending champions Mumbai Indians. Their bowling unit leaked a lot of runs to Rohit Sharma and never really came up with a solid plan to minimise his damage. This will be a tough match for KKR against Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Sunrisers, too were disappointing in the opening match against Royal Challengers Bangalore. Their middle order completely collapsed after the dismissal of Bairstow and Manish Pandey and never looked like they were in a position to complete the chase.
Injuries and unavailability:
Mitchell Marsh suffered a freak injury while bowling in the previous match and the management is looking at ways to get him back home in order to recover. There are also question marks surrounding the fitness of Kane Williamson and Mohammed Nabi might take the place of Marsh in the starting XI.
Probable Playing XIs:
Sunrisers Hyderabad: David Warner (c), Jonny Bairstow (wk), Manish Pandey, Priyam Garg, Vijay Shankar, Abhishek Sharma, Mohammed Nabi, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Sandeep Sharma, T Natarajan
Kolkata Knight Riders: Sunil Narine, Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana, Eoin Morgan, Andre Russell, Dinesh Karthik(c & wk), Rinku Singh, Pat Cummins, Kuldeep Yadav, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Shivam Mavi
KKR vs SRH MyTeam11 Teams
Head to Head/Small League
In the small league, the expected playing XI consisting of the best players should be chosen. And as such, assembling the best individuals to ensure maximum quality in all departments will be the right thing to do.
Experimental lineups should be put out for this and since both teams could look to shuffle the pack a little.
KKR vs SRH MyTeam11 Top Picks
David Warner: David Warner is without a doubt, the most prolific foreign batsman in the IPL. He was won the coveted Orange Cap the most number of times and he has been in good touch during the ODI and T20 series in England.
Jonny Bairstow: Bairstow formed a phenomenal partnership with David Warner last season. The openers wrecked bowling lineups and in his very first season in the IPL, Jonny Bairstow scored over 400 runs at an average of 55.62 and a strike rate of 157.24.
Andre Russell: Andre Russell was the most destructive player last season and was felicitated with Man of the Tournament. He hit the most sixes, scored over 500 runs at a strike rate above 200 and also took more than 10 wickets!
Eoin Morgan: Eoin Morgan has been in brilliant form in white ball cricket and has got a lot of cricket under his belt this summer. He was in sharp touch in the recently concluded series against Australia as well!
KKR vs SRH MyTeam11 Captain Picks
Captain: Andre Russell and Jonny Bairstow
A poor show from the top order made it almost impossible for Andre Russell to get going, who came at a very high pressure situation and got dismissed easily. Jonny Bairstow was phenomenal with the bat in the last match and scored 61 runs in 43 deliveries.
Vice Captains: David Warner and Eoin Morgan
David Warner was unfortunate to be run out when Bairstow’s stroke took a deflection off Umesh Yadav’s finger and hit the stumps, and he’d want to announce his arrival in this match. Eoin Morgan also couldn’t perform well in the last match and the onus will be on him.
KKR vs SRH MyTeam11 Budget picks

Shubman Gill: Shubman is a brilliant batsman who carries a lot of promised and can prove to be an important multiplier pick at just 8.5 credits.
Shivam Mavi: Sam is very impressive in his wicket taking abilities. He is available for just 8 credits.
