KKR vs SRH Head to Head Records: Kolkata Knight Riders’ H2H Record Against Sunrisers Hyderabad- IPL 2021 Match 49. Sunrisers Hyderabad take on Kolkata Knight Riders in the 49th match of IPL 2021 on Sunday at Dubai International Cricket Stadium. Sunrisers Hyderabad continues to occupy the bottom position on the points table. They haven’t made a great improvement in the second leg of IPL 2021.

Kane Williamson and Co. have won just one game played in UAE and two overall this season. SRH would look to win the last three games of the season.

SRH are coming into the encounter on the back of a six wicket-defeat over SRH. The batting unit, once again, faltered after getting a decent start. Jason Roy and Kane Williamson had little to contribute, while youngsters namely Abhishek Sharma and Abdul Samad scored a few boundaries before getting out. W Saha scored a useful 44 off 46 to help the team compile 134 runs in the first innings.

However, it was never going to be enough against a powerful batting line-up of Chennai Super Kings. CSK chased down the score in 19.3 overs. Jason Holder picked 2 wickets in the 16th over and re-ignited some hopes but MS Dhoni and Ambati Rayudu later guided the side comfortably.

Kolkata Knight Riders, on the other hand, are coming off a defeat against Punjab. They have been impressive in the second leg of IPL 2021. Out of five matches played in UAE, they have managed to win three. Currently, they are at fourth position on the points table with 5 wins in 12 matches. They have two games remaining and they cannot afford to lose a game from here. KKR need to win both games to give themselves some hope of reaching the playoffs.

KKR are coming into the contest on the back of a 5-wicket defeat at the hands of Punjab Kings. Venkatesh Iyer scored his second half-century of the season and gave his side a blistering start.

Nitish Rana too played a handy 31-run knock off 18 balls, however, the absence of Andre Russell coupled with Morgan’s poor form didn’t allow KKR to finish the innings on a high. Morgan and Co. eventually ended their innings at 165 runs. KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal set the tone for the chase with a seventy-run partnership for the opening wicket. Chakravarthy and Narine brought KKR back into the game with wickets in the middle overs.

However, KL Rahul stayed till the end and helped the team chase down the score with three balls remaining. KKR missed the services of Andre Russell and Lockie Ferguson in the bowling department and, perhaps, it cost them the game.
