SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) will host Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the IPL 2020 clash at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium on Sunday. KKR changed captaincy with Dinesh Karthik handing over the role to Eoin Morgan but the decision did not quite impact the setup. KKR look like the most vulnerable side in the top four.
The match against SRH will be all the more important as if they win the game it will help them remain intact in the top four but if they lose the game then the David Warner-led side could well topple their position in coming days.
IPL 2020 Match 35: SunRisers Hyderabad vs Kolkata Knight Riders: Weather Report
The major concern playing in the UAE will be heat. A lot of foreign players are not habituated to playing in such conditions. However, local Indian players might tackle the heat as they have played under such conditions in the sub-continent.
The weather on the match day is predicted to remain around 33 to 26 degree celsius. As the day, progresses, the temperature might give slight relief to the players who are in for an evening start with the match.
Toss also becomes a major concern in the IPL 2020 due to this situation even though in the shortest format it doesn’t plays a big role. Humidity during the latter part of the match makes it difficult for the bowlers to grip the ball. The season has so far seen that the team’s batting first have won most number of matches.
