Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) will be desperate to return to winning ways and spoil Kolkata Knight Riders’ (KKR) party when both the teams will wrestle at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium on May 19 (Sunday).

Meanwhile, the hosts will be eager to improve their bowling and fielding performance as they brace up to face another tough opponent. They are likely to bring in few changes with Bhuvneshwar Kumar coming back to the playing XI in place of Basil Thampi, who conceded 70 runs in his four-over spell against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).

They will look to play as a unit and will be aiming to give their premium best before they start their playoff campaign in the impending future.

On the other hand, KKR will have to grab the two points on offer to secure their place in the playoffs of the ongoing season eleven of Indian Premier League (IPL). In nutshell, they have done well as a team but have lacked consistency.

The dew will also play its part and the team winning the toss will obviously bowl first. Subsequently, it has been a  norm in this edition so far.
