IPL 2021, Match 49: Kolkata Knight Riders vs Sunrisers Hyderabad – Toss Report

For Match 49 of IPL 2021, Kolkata Knight Riders will take on the Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Sunday evening.

The bottom-placed SRH could spoil the party of Eoin Morgan’s side who are aiming for a playoff berth. KKR have acquired 10 points in 12 matches and are situated above the likes of Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals in the points table courtesy of their better net run rate.

KKR have won 3 out of their 5 matches in the UAE leg this season. They are coming off a loss to Punjab Kings in their last match. SRH, too, lost their previous game to the Chennai Super Kings.

The two-time champions have a dominating head-to-head record over the 2016 title winners. KKR have defeated SRH in 13 encounters while have conceded losses in 7 matches.

The last time these two sides met, earlier this season in Chennai, KKR registered a victory in a high-scoring contest. Nitish Rana starred with the bat, scoring 80 runs off 56 balls, supported by Rahul Tripathi’s fifty, helping KKR to 187. SRH fell 10 runs short of KKR’s total with half-centuries from Manish Pandey and Jonny Bairstow going in vain.
