KKR Vs SRH Preview IPL 2019

KKR vs SRH Record Both groups hit over their various weights under the direction of two quite similar type of men – quiet, soft-spoken and inspiring leaders who talked their talk with massive performances. 

For KKR, it was Dinesh Karthik and for SRH, it was Kiwi skipper Kane Williamson. Both groups look similar in terms of their composition ahead of their opening encounter of IPL 2019. 

Last season, the Kolkata outfit had a very good starting XI but lacked backup choices along with the franchise attempted to deal with that dilemma by buying a few players at the auction.  One of them was Carlos Brathwaite, who will forever relate to Eden Gardens. 

The current Windies T20 skipper struck four consecutive sixes off Ben Stokes at the final over of this 2016 T20 World Cup final at precisely the exact identical place to dramatically win the championship for his nation.

However, the Shah Rukh Khan-owned side received three massive injury jolts in the pace bowling department with Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Shivam Mavi along with South African international Anrich Nortje being ruled out of the entire tournament. 

Thus, the rate department is a major weak spot for the staff which SRH will probably be quite keen on harnessing. 1 section both groups will not be worried about is the all-rounders.  The 2 teams are stacked with quality on that front as KKR boast of Andre Russell and Sunil Narine while SRH has former Knight Shakib Al Hasan and Vijay Shankar.

Even Rashid Khan has shown he can wield his willow to great effect at the lower order. KKR will be cautious of this Afghanistan global as he was the difference between the 2 sides when they last met. KKR looked in charge of the qualifier against SRH when Rashid completely altered the game, first having a late flurry of bounds scoring 34 runs off 10 balls and then using the ball since he ignored Robin Uthappa, Chris Lynn and Russell. SRH will be without captain Williamson with this clash because he is still recovering from a regular one tear into his left pectoral muscle.  Bhuvneshwar Kumar will soon be leading the side in his or her absence.
