Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will take on SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the IPL 2020 contest in Abu Dhabi later in the day. Both the franchises are seated at the bottom of the table with a loss in their opening encounter. It will be a chance for them to get off the mark in the IPL 2020 points table.
Cricketer-turned-commentator Aakash Chopra spoke about the key contest in the match. He singled out two Australians Pat Cummins and David Warner playing in different franchises. Chopra said that the contest between KKR’s Cummins and Warner will be intense, adding, that they had a bad experience in the previous game.
“There are two Australian cricketers, one is Pat Cummins and in front of him will be David Warner. This will be a good contest because Cummins has pace and bounce which Warner likes a lot,” Aakash Chopra said in a video shared on his YouTube channel.
“Also both of them have had a bad experience in the previous match, one of them was unfortunately run out and the other one had a terrible start, conceding 49 runs in 3 overs and Rohit Sharma actually tore him apart. He will have the pressure of the price tag as well.”
Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will host SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) for their second match in the IPL 2020 at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. KKR will hope to get the better off SRH in order to open their account on the points table. The Kolkata franchise will however be wary of the formidable SRH line-up.
SRH will be banking on David Warner and Jonny Bairstow to get them off to a good start. Manish Pandey can contribute important runs for the side and with Mitchell Marsh ruled out of the IPL 2020, New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson might get a place in the side.
