SRH vs KKR Match Prediction: Who Will Win Today’s IPL Match Between SRH And KKR? IPL 2022, Match 25. SunRisers Hyderabad, 8th placed will take on 2nd placed Kolkata Knight Riders in match number 25 of IPL 2022 on Friday (April 15) at Brabourne Stadium at 7:30 pm. SunRisers Hyderabad seems to have finally got to winning ways as the Kane Williamson-led side claimed back-to-back victories against Chennai and Gujarat and would be eager to make it a hat-trick of wins against KKR.
Shreyas Iyer-led Knight Riders’ winning streak was ended when they were defeated by a spirited Delhi Capitals by 44 runs in their previous game. Kolkata has played five games and lost two of them against Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi. They will be looking to keep the disappointments of the previous match behind.
SunRisers Hyderabad defeated dominant Gujarat Titans quite comprehensively in their previous game and that win would certainly boost the confidence of the side to do well against another higher-ranked side. In 21 games the two teams have played, Kolkata emerged victorious 14 times while Hyderabad has won 7 of those games.
Ajinkya Rahane has struggled, and he is likely to make way for Australia’s limited-overs skipper Aaron Finch who will open the batting with Venkatesh Iyer. Kolkata has one of the most dangerous lower-middle orders and the side would expect big hits from Sam Billings, Andre Russell, and Sunil Narine in this game. Their bowlers would have to come out of the shocking performance in the last game and tight spells would be needed from Umesh Yadav and youngster Rasikh Salam.
Sunil Narine has looked good, but the side would expect a good spell of bowling from Varun Chakravarthy who hasn’t delivered yet in the tournament. Andre Russell and Venkatesh Iyer will have a very important role to play as Pat Cummins may not play in this game despite scoring the joint quickest 50 against Mumbai in a winning cause as he has been too expensive with the ball in hand.
SRH vs KKR Match Prediction: Who Will Win The Match Between SRH And KKR? IPL 2022, 25- KKR Favourites As SRH Is Without Washington Sundar
SunRisers Hyderabad has won two consecutive games but has its own set of problems. Their batting is weak in the lower middle order and losing their best bowler spinner Washington Sundar due to an injury has hurt their bowling attack.
They will need to make the best out of their resources to win this game. Kolkata Knight Riders have depth in the batting which is a big plus for the side. With their excellent record against Hyderabad in recent years, they will start as favorites to win this game.
Sunrisers Hyderabad are coming on the back of a two-match win and the Kane Williamson-led side looks in red hot form but Kolkata Knight Riders have been a dominant side in the tournament and look more balanced. Kolkata Knight Riders has an edge over SunRisers Hyderabad in this game.
