IPL 2019, SRH vs KKR: Predicted Playing XIs of Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Kolkata Knight Riders and Match Predictions

Kolkata Knight Rider would look to break their losing streak in the Indian Premier League against Sunrisers Hyderabad on Sunday.

KKR, who lost to Royal Challengers Bangalore by 10 runs on Friday night, have looked out of sorts in their recent meetings at home with their middle order not showing up and the over-reliance on Andre Russell now becoming a cause of worry.

Chasing a stiff 214 for victory, Andre Russell smashed a typical 25-ball 65 with Nitish Rana scoring an unbeaten 46-ball 85.

But in the middle overs, after KKR had lost the first three wickets inside the powerplay, Robin Uthappa and Rana stumbled along, accumulating just 46 off 41 balls in a partnership that had Russell fuming in the dugout.

Earlier, Sunrisers broke Chennai Super Kings' winning streak, and secured a vital victory after three losses on the trot, with a six-wicket win at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium.

The likes of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Khaleel Ahmed bowled in good areas to keep the run flow in check while Rashid Khan scalped two wickets conceding just 17 runs.

With the bat, it was Jonny Bairstow and David Warner show once again as the pair guided the team to a facile victory by sharing a 66-run stand for the first wicket.

Placed fifth, a rung below KKR, in the points table, Sunrisers will take on an opponent low of confidence after a string of four losses in a row.

KKR would look to rest their key spinner, Kuldeep Yadav after he got massive hammering by Englishman Moeen Ali in the RCB clash.

What to expect, Match Predictions - 

Looking at the current form, Sunrisers Hyderabad will enter their home grounds as the favourites against dejected Kolkata Knight Riders. But the Andre Russell factor can change the fortunes for KKR camp.

Predicted Playing XI of SRH and KKR

Probable Playing XI of SRH - David Warner, Kane Williamson (c), Jonny Bairstow (wk), Shahbaz Nadeem, Vijay Shankar, Sandeep Sharma, Deepak Hooda, Rashid Khan, K Khaleel Ahmed, Yusuf Pathan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar

Probable Playing XI of KKR - Dinesh Karthik (c & wk), Piyush Chawla, Robin Uthappa, Sunil Narine, Harry Gurney, Andre Russell, Chris Lynn, Nitish Rana, Prasidh Krishna, Shubman Gill, KC Cariappa
