Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) take on Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in a must-win match in match 61 of IPL 2022 in Pune. Hyderabad beat KKR earlier in the season and the Knights will be looking forward to give one back to SRH now. A loss for either team would mean that they are almost out of playoff contention in IPL 2022.
Kolkata Knight Riders won their previous match against the Mumbai Indians. They have lost seven matches this season so far. They have lost twice against Delhi Capitals, once against RCB, SRH, RR and LSG so far.
The side has struggled to pick a proper combination, However, they recalled some of the key Indian players who clicked in the game against Mumbai. Umesh Yadav missed the game but the likes of Venkatesh Iyer and Varun Chakravarthy, two of the retained players contributed to the team’s win. Barring Umesh’s return, there should be no other changes in the playing XI.
