KKR vs SRH: Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) Predicted Playing XI Against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH)- IPL 2021 Match 49. After losing to Punjab Kings in their last game on Friday, Kolkata Knight Riders have made things hard for themselves as far as their playoff spot is concerned. With that defeat, they are now sitting at fourth position with 5 wins in 12 matches and two games remaining.

They will be playing their next game against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Kolkata Knight Riders performed well with the bat in the last game, thanks to significant contributions from the top-four. Eoin Morgan’s poor form, though, still remains a concern. The absence of Lockie Ferguson and Andre Russell has weakened their bowling unit. What changes they make in the next game remains to be seen.

Nevertheless, Kolkata will be playing their next game against Sunrisers Hyderabad and would be confident of winning the game. We have compiled our predicted playing XI for the important encounter. Here’s a look at it.

Shubman Gill is with the right intent. He has been aggressive in his approach. However, he hasn’t been able to play the big knocks. Gill is looking in good touch and you can expect him to play contribute heavily on Sunday. His partner, Venkatesh Iyer has been making headlines since making his debut in the second leg. He scored 67 runs off 49 balls in the last game and picked 1 for 30 with the ball.
