SunRisers Hyderabad has performed quite well in IPL in recent years. They have qualified for playoffs in each of the seasons from 2016 to 2020. SRH won the IPL trophy in 2016 and was runners-up in IPL 2018. However, nothing really went well for them last season (IPL 2021) as they suffered one humiliating defeat after another. In fact, they were the first team to get knocked out of the playoff race.

In IPL 2022, both teams face each other on April 15 at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai and on May 14 at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune. For SunRisers, it has been a superb return to form after having lost the first two games in a row. It felt as if they were going the 2021 way where they finished last, but skipper Kane Williamson has managed to inspire the team with two superb wins in the last two matches.

The bowling has been good so far for SRH with Umran Malik’s pace, Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s swing, T Natarajan’s accuracy, and Washington Sundar’s variations, and the top 4 in the batting department have also contributed with valuable runs. With the team high on confidence, they would only be looking to maintain the momentum, and make it a hat-trick of wins.

For Kolkata Knight Riders, it has been a bumpy ride so far. They started with a win, then lost their second match. Then had two back-to-back wins, and then again lost one. They haven’t looked settled in terms of the team combination as compared to SRH, who have made very few changes in all 4 matches so far. With the hope for a win, there could be a few changes in the squad for KKR.

Ideally, SunRisers Hyderabad wouldn’t have made any changes in the squad as they had done on the previous two occasions, but with Washington Sundar injured for the next few matches, SunRisers would be forced to make a change. As a like-for-like replacement in the form of a spinner, Shreyas Gopal seems the only good option available for them.

In the last 5 matches, Kolkata Knight Riders have won 4 matches, while Sunrisers Hyderabad has only won 1 match. In IPL 2020, the match between the two sides went into the Super Over.

The Hyderabad side ended at 163 for six with David Warner staying unbeaten on 47. Lockie Ferguson then took two wickets in the Super Over and conceded only 2 runs. Kolkata easily scored the required three runs to complete the win.
