  • Rinku Singh showcased remarkable form in the 2023 IPL, averaging 59.25, making him our choice for KKR’s top run-scorer against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Spinner Varun Chakravarthy, known for his impressive strike-rate of 15.80 in the previous campaign, is a solid candidate for KKR’s leading wicket-taker in this match.
  • Heinrich Klaasen demonstrated his prowess in the last year’s tournament, averaging 49.78 from 11 innings, earning him our selection as Sunrisers Hyderabad’s highest run-scorer against KKR. Umran Malik, an outright fast bowler with the capability to dismantle opposition batting line-ups, is a promising option for Sunrisers Hyderabad’s top wicket-taker in this encounter.
  • With his consistent performance in white-ball cricket over the past few years, Heinrich Klaasen stands out. We recommend backing him to hit the most sixes in the game.

Weather & Pitch Report


According to the forecast, the temperature will drop from 27 to 25 degrees across the duration of this game with humidity levels climbing to 85% plus by the conclusion.

Pitch Report:

This looks like being a low-scoring venue for 2024 with assistance for the bowlers, particularly the spinners. Whoever bats first will be looking to post a score of 165+.

Team NEWS: 

KKR Team News: 

KKR has undergone some personnel changes in recent months. Gus Atkinson’s absence from the tournament, due to a ruling by the ECB, has led to Dushmantha Chameera stepping in as his replacement. Additionally, Jason Roy has decided to opt out of the tournament for personal reasons, creating an opening for Phil Salt to join the franchise for IPL 2024. 

SRH Team News: 

Pat Cummins will captain a squad that is nearly fully available for the upcoming match. The only exception is all-rounder Wanindu Hasaranga, who was originally slated to participate in Sri Lanka’s Test series against Bangladesh but has been suspended, rendering him unavailable for selection.

Winning Chances: 

Eden Gardens under floodlights will make for an excellent spectacle on Saturday evening and we are expecting an entertaining and tight contest between KKR and Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Our prediction is for Sunrisers Hyderabad, with their top international batters, to win this fixture.

Sunrisers Hyderabad to beat Kolkata Knight Riders.

Kolkata Knight Riders a 89% chance to win this match 

Sunrisers Hyderabad have a 11% chance to win this match 

Key Players: 

Kolkata Knight Riders 

Rinku Singh 

The middle order batter is one of the most impressive finishers in Indian cricket at the moment. He will take on the opposition bowlers with a strike-rate of 148.10 from 99 T20 innings.

Nitish Rana 

The left-handed middle-order batter is a consistent part of KKR’s middle order with at least two half-centuries in each of the last five IPL tournaments and one in all eight of his IPL campaigns.

Mitchell Starc 

The Australian left-arm pacer makes his first IPL appearance since 2015 and will bring his usual mix of extreme pace and some unplayable deliveries.

Varun Chakravarhty 

The spinner has been a very consistent performer for KKR over the last four years with 61 wickets including 20 in the last IPL.

KKR Possible Impact Player Substitutes 

Ramandeep Singh, Manish Pandey, Harshit Rana, Suyash Sharma, Anukul Ro 

The seasoned top-order batsman Manish Pandey will strive to secure a spot in the XI. However, if he doesn’t, he’s anticipated to be the preferred choice to bolster the batting lineup. In the event that a bowler with significant impact is needed, 22-year-old fast bowler Harshit Rana is expected to be at the forefront of considerations.

Sunrisers Hyderabad 

Heinrich Klaasen 

The South African hit a top score of 104 in last year’s IPL and will arrive at Eden Gardens with a T20 strike-rate of over 150.

Travis Head 

The left-handed Australian has been in brilliant form in international cricket over the last 12 months and he will look to attack from the first ball of his innings.

Pat Cummins 

The Australia skipper is a brilliant bowler but can also score valuable runs down the order. However, this will be his first time as captain in top tier T20 cricket and he is against his old side.

Umran Malik 

The 24 year old right-arm fast bowler has taken 65 T20 wickets and he will generate pace on this pitch even if no other bowler can.

SRH Possible Impact Player Substitutes 

Marco Jansen, Nitish Kumar Reddy, Sanir Singh, Jaydev Unadkat, Anmolpreet Singh 

The left-arm pace bowler Unadkat has accumulated 218 wickets throughout his T20 career, showcasing his effectiveness in this format. Should Sunrisers need an additional bowler for the second innings, he is a probable choice. On the batting front, Nitish Kumar Reddy, a 20-year-old batting all-rounder, exhibits great potential and promise.

Team Forms: 

KKR Team Form: 

KKR were beaten in two of their final three games in the 2023 IPL to end any hopes of a play-off place.

SRH Team Form: 

Surisers Hyderabad lost eight of their last 10 matches in the 2024 IPL including their final four games.
