IPL’s fever raising day to day on people minds because of back to back explosive battles. IPL10 2017 is maintaining a great enthusiasm between people. Today’s 14th match of this IPL10 season is between Kolkata Knight Riders Vs Sunrisers Hyderabad. This would be a battle between two top bowling sides of the IPL and Kolkata will hope to avenge their defeat in the Eliminator round last season. After three games both Kolkata Knight Riders and Sunrisers Hyderabad have followed a similar pattern and have occupied slots in the top half of the table. Only net run-rate separates both teams and it will certainly make for a good contest when the two pretty evenly matched teams face off today. KKR won their first game at home against KXIP, pretty convincingly and will do little to change the momentum they’ve gained. On the other hand SRH is team that KKR have consistently got the better of. They have won six of the eight games against SRH overall and have never lost against them in four games at the Eden Gardens.

Here are 7 sneak preview of IPL 2017 14th match

#1 IPL10 season 2017 14th match is between Kolkata Knight Riders Vs Sunrisers Hyderabad. One of the biggest talking points was the move to open the batting with Sunil Narine and there are enough indications that KKR will persist with this strategy and not let it be just a one-off thing. For SRH too either of their openers Shikhar Dhawan and David Warner have managed to contribute in each of their games but it’s the inconsistent middle order that might worry them going into this game.

#2 This fourteenth match of Indian Premier League (IPL) season 10, 2017 between KKR Vs SRH is taking place, today at 4pm, Eden Gardens.

#3 Kolkata Knight Riders likely XI: Shakib Al Hasan, Gautam Gambhir (c), Robin Uthappa (wk), Manish Pandey, Chris Lynn, Yusuf Pathan, Suryakumar Yadav, Chris Woakes, Piyush Chawla, Kuldeep Yadav, Sunil Narine, Trent Boult.

#4 Kolkata Knight Riders: Kolkata Knight Riders yet played 3 matches and won 2 matches so they are at the 2nd position at IPL points table.

#5 Sunrisers Hyderabad likely XI: David Warner, Shikhar Dhawan, Moises Henriques, Yuvraj Singh, Deepak Hooda, Naman Ojha, Ben Cutting, Bipul Sharma, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ashish Nehra, Rashid Khan.

#6 Sunrisers Hyderabad: While Sunrisers Hyderabad had played 3 matches and won 2 of them and at 3rd position with lil bit low average as compared to KKR.

#7 If we take a look at the team players of both teams then we realize that both the teams are well balanced according to batting and bowling line-up but as usual, the home ground factor will be involved with the toss factor.

Openers

Kolkata Knight Riders: Gautam Gambhir and Robin Uthappa

The Kolkata outfit boasts of the seasoned opening pair of captain Gautam Gambhir and Robin Uthappa. There is no replacing the much reliable pair of Gautam Gambhir and Robin Uthappa from the opening slot. The pair were not successful in the last season, but no one can doubt their credentials looking at the past records.

Sunrisers Hyderabad: David Warner and Shikhar Dhawan

Batting superstars David Warner and Shikhar Dhawan will be heavily relied upon by Sunrisers Hyderabad to do bulk of the scoring. The David Warner led side were already a balanced outfit, but the addition of new players has added a new dimension to their side.

Predictions

According to us Kolkata Knight Riders will hold an edge.

  • Kolkata Knight Riders have won six of the eight games against SRH overall and have never lost against them in four games at the Eden Gardens.
  • KKR is on the Second Position and SRH is on 3rd. If KKR won the toss the SRH Will do Bowling First, Because they have the Best Bowlers and Try to Stop KKR at Lowest Total, While the if KKR Won the Toss The Match Will be 50/50. Because KKR Still having the Best Combination of Batting and Bowling Lineup.
