It was a Sunday afternoon match. Everything was going as per plan. Fans were lazing across their couch and watching the most impactful team (GT) make a mockery of a weak injury-affected one (KKR). Gujarat Titans were holding their own after a flurry of runs by Vijay Shankar. Rashid Khan blew away the KKR middle order with a hattrick. They were on course to comfortably win by a margin of 15 – 20 runs. Until a miracle happened. Until Rinku Singh happened. KKR dealt arguably the greatest last over in IPL history. And later that same day, the Sunrisers Hyderabad quietly got two points with their first win of the season. KKR Vs SRH IPL Match today is going to be a battle of two resurgent teams, on course to correct their dwindling expectations.

Punjab Kings Vs Gujarat Titans IPL – Cricket Maiden

The Sunrisers Hyderabad have a great bowling unit, a passionate and knowledgeable owner, but the batting line-up that hasn’t quite lived up to its potential. Rahul Tripathi and Aiden Markram changed that, with a perfect chase against the Punjab Kings. On paper, SRH is one of the most balanced squads in IPL 2023. With Harry Brook yet to get going, there is certainly more to come.

Player Availability and Team Strategy –

Kolkata Knight Riders have Liton Das and Jason Roy coming in to boost their batting line-up. One out of the two will surely be preferred after three different openers were tried with Gurbaz at the top.

The Sunrisers are likely to go in with the same XI and persist with Harry Brook, especially with the faster surface in Kolkata. They’re also likely to sub in Abdul Samad for the finishing role.

When: April 14, 2023, 07:30 PM IST

Where: Eden Gardens, Kolkata

Playing Conditions: The single game in Kolkata till now was all about RCB’s fall against spin. However, the surface is perhaps the best-suited one for pace in the country. Expect a high-scoring encounter.

Head-to-head: KKR dominate the head-to-head with 15 wins and 8 losses overall against the Sunrisers, and even more so at the Eden Gardens with 6 wins and just 2 losses.
