When and where:
After registering a comprehensive victory over Rajasthan Royals in the eliminator it’s time to move on for KKR and face the table-toppers Sunrisers Hyderabad in a quest to reach the finals and clinch their third title. The match will be played at Eden Gardens in Kolkata and the timings for the match will be 7:00 PM IST and 1:30 PM GMT.
Chennai Super Kings who have already qualified in the finals will be awaiting the winner of this encounter.
Sunrisers Hyderabad, on the other hand, has a lot to think about, they haven’t been in a great position ever since they lost the game against Chennai in Pune. After that loss, they haven’t been able to win a single match and instead lost 4 games in succession.
So, let’s move forwards to KKR vs SRH team news and KKR vs SRH dream11 prediction.
Kolkata Knight Riders are probably the most balanced side in this year’s IPL and this is because they are a team with least changes in there playing eleven alongside Sunrisers Hyderabad who also have tinkered on few occasions with their eleven as the stability of a team is hindered if changes are made frequently.
Both the teams will not look for any changes especially at this juncture of the tournament and will go into the game with the same eleven which featured in their last games respectively.
In KKR, Javon Searles’ place is not confirmed. He had an average outing in the last game. He might make way for Tom Curran/ M Johnson or S Mavi tonight.

Dinesh Karthik (c & wk), Ishank Jaggi, Robin Uthappa, Tom Curran, Kuldeep Yadav, Rinku Singh, Sunil Narine, Nitish Rana, Mitchell Johnson, Shivam Mavi, Andre Russell, Chris Lynn, Piyush Chawla, Javon Searles, Vinay Kumar, Apoorv Wankhade, Shubman Gill, Cameron Delport
Kane Williamson (c), Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Shakib Al Hasan, Carlos Brathwaite, Mehdi Hasan, Mohammad Nabi, Shikhar Dhawan, Deepak Hooda, Shreevats Goswami, Sachin Baby, K Khaleel Ahmed, Rashid Khan, Sandeep Sharma, Siddarth Kaul, Chris Jordan, Bipul Sharma, Manish Pandey, Yusuf Pathan, Tanmay Agarwal, Alex Hales, T Natarajan, Ricky Bhui, Basil Thampi, Bhuvneshwar Kumar
At this stage of the tournament where every game is a knockout, there should not be any changes in the eleven unless any last minute injury comes in as a spoiler.
Wicketkeeper: Dinesh Karthik
Batsmen- Chris Lynn, Robin Uthappa, Nitish Rana, Shubman Gill
Allrounder- Sunil Narine, Andre Russell,
Bowlers- Javon Searles, Prasidh Krishna, Piyush Chawla, Kuldeep Yadav.
Wicketkeeper- Shreevats Goswami
Batsmen- Shikhar Dhawan, Kane Williamson(c), Manish Pandey
All-rounder- Yusuf Pathan, Carlos Brathwaite, Shakib-al-Hassan
Bowlers- Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Siddharth Kaul, Sandeep Sharma.
For Kolkata, Chris Lynn, Sunil Narine, Robin Uthappa, Nitish Rana and Dinesh Karthik will have the responsibilities to take the bowlers to the cleaners. Andre Russell’s power game in the last match aided the last minute spark in Kolkata innings for which he was adjudged the man of the match, his all-around performance will once again be crucial.
In the bowling department, the spin trio of Piyush, Narine, and Kuldeep can emerge as game changers as the Eden pitch assist the slow bowlers, especially in the second innings.
For Hyderabad, the skipper Kane Williamson and Shikhar Dhawan will be the key to their run scoring. In the last game Carlos Brathwaite hit some lusty blows in the end and contributed with a crucial knock of 43* off 29 balls which helped SRH to post a respectable total, so this time also there would be some expectations from him. Bowling came up good in the last game after they took a low scoring game till the last over and fought hard for a win for their side.
In wicket keeping, Dinesh Karthik is an automatic choice after emerging as the highest run-getter for KKR this year.
Batsmen would be, Yusuf Pathan, Robin Uthappa, Shubman Gill and Kane Williamson.
The all-rounder spot should be given to Sunil Narine and Andre Russell.
The Bowling line-up would be, Siddharth Kaul, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Rashid Khan and Kuldeep Yadav.
