  • Rahmanullah Gurbaz is yet to bat for KKR this season. He was out of the playing XI as Phil Salt did well, however, he returned to the team after Salt left for UK. Gurbaz also carry match winning skills and we are optimistic about him doing well. Back him as KKR top batter. Varun Chakravarthy has been outstanding, taking 18 wickets this season for KKR. Back him as a top KKR bowler.
  • Travis Head has been in ruthless form this season, scoring over 500 runs at a strike rate of over 200. Back him as SRH top batter. Pat Cummins has been the best SRH bowler, taking 15 crucial wickets. Back him as top bowler.
  • Travis Head and Abhishek Sharma have been outstanding for SRH. If they are together for 3-4 overs, SRH will score a lot of runs in the powerplay. We are backing SRH to have a better opening partnership.

The surface at the Narendra Modi Stadium will be great for batting; however, spinners could play a big role as there could be some turn on offer for the spinners given the excessive heat the pitch has been under for the last few days.

Team NEWS:

KKR are unlikely to make any changes to the playing XI they selected against Rajasthan Royals. Even though the match could not start due to rain, it gave us a clear idea about the playing XI the team step on the park in Qualifier 1. Rahmanullah Gurbaz will replace Phil Salt in the team.

SRH Team News: 

SRH have been unstoppable as a team and the combination has yielded outstanding results for the Pat Cummins-led side. SRH are likely to field an unchanged XI in the Qualifier 1.

Winning Chances: 

KKR are favourites for us. There is very little to choose between teams in terms of quality, however, we feel that KKR have a better bowling attack. The presence of Narine and Chakravarthy might well be the difference between win and loss for KKR. The spinners have been in great form and we doubt if SRH can dictate terms against Narine and Chakravarthy at Narendra Modi Stadium pitch which has become helpful for spinners. We are backing KKR to win.

Kolkata Knight Riders to beat Sunrisers Hyderabad

Kolkata Knight Riders a 71% chance to win this match 

Sunrisers Hyderabad a 29% chance to win this match 

Key Players: 

Kolkata Knight Riders 

Rahmanullah Gurbaz 

Gurbaz hasn’t played a game for KKR this season as Phil Salt performed admirably well. However, Gurbaz himself is a destructive batter and can be a match winner for KKR. We are expecting an impactful innings from Gurbaz straightaway.

Sunil Narine 

Sunil Narine scored 461 runs took 15 wickets at a remarkable economy of less than seven in IPL 2024 so far. Narine has played a significant role in KKR’s juggernaut this year. He has been outstanding and if he can keep form in the Qualifier 1, KKR should book a berth in final without much trouble.

Andre Russell 

Andre Russell has also contributed heavily when given an opportunity, both with the bat and ball. Russell has scored 222 runs and took 15 wickets in IPL 2024. While we all were aware of Russell’s potential with the bat, his bowling has impressed more in this season as he has bowled in tough situations and got crucial wickets.

Varun Chakravarthy 

Varun Chakravarthy is the leading wicket-taker for KKR this season, taking 18 wickets. Chakravarthy can be a big player for KKR in Qualifier 1 as the conditions may favour spinners and SRH batters could get into trouble given their intent to take the attack to the opposition.

KKR Possible Impact Player Substitutes 

Angkrish Raghuwanshi, Suyash Sharma, Manish Pandey, Ankul Roy, Vaibhav Arora 

Angkrish Raghuvanshi is a likely impact player choice if KKR need a batter while Vaibhav Arora will be used as bowling Impact player.

Sunrisers Hyderabad 

Abhishek Sharma 

Abhishek Sharma scored 66 in 28 balls against PBKS to help the team chase 215. This was not a one-off innings as Sharma has played similarly throughout the IPL, scoring 467 runs at a strike rate of over 200.

Travis Head 

Travis Head and his ability to deliver in crunch games is well known. From World Cup final to WTC final, he has proved his nerves in many must win games for Australia and he would like to repeat the feat for SRH in IPL qualifier as well. Head has scored 533 runs in the tournament.

Pat Cummins 

Cummins has been exceptional as a leader in IPL 2024. He has bowled tremendously well, taking 15 wickets in the tournament. He has used himself wisely and picked crucial wickets in the middle overs.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar 

Wickets with the new ball will be key for SRH thus Bhuvneshwar Kumar could be a big impact player for the SRH. If he can remove a couple of early wickets, SRH could be on top.

SRH Possible Impact Player Substitutes 

Travis Head, Umran Malik, Glenn Phillips, Washinton Sundar, T Natarajan 

If SRH are chasing, Head will be the impact player while if they are batting first, T Natarajan will be the impact player.

Team Forms: 

KKR Team Form: 

KKR ended the league stage as table toppers, winning nine games. Their last two games were washed out due to rain.

SRH Team Form: 

SRH had a great run in league stage and finished second after winning eight out of the 14 games. They suffered defeats in just five matches.
