Sunrisers Hyderabad-Kolkata Knight Riders will fight today
25 May :- Two-time winner Kolkata Knight Riders have reached the qualifiers in the Indian Premier League (IPL) after the hurdle in the Indian Premier League. On Friday, SunRisers Hyderabad stood the challenge for them. Having won the match, fans are focused on which team will reach the final round.
The 2016 winner, Hyderabad, had to lose to the Chennai Super Kings in the first qualifier. Having deferred a place in the next round, losing the next four consecutive matches, Hyderabad’s confidence has certainly diminished. However, ignoring them, they will once again have to get ready for their top sport.

Shikhar Dhawan and captain Kane Williamson, both of whom are Hyderabad’s toppers, and if one of the batsmen survives on the pitch, then the right-hander can score runs. Hyderabad has got a lot of comfort from Manish Pandey’s form. However, Shakib Al Hasan and Yusuf Pathan need to lift the game. Hyderabad had also pushed Chennai into the shade of defeat. Therefore, they will be mainly dependent on the bowlers in today’s match.
On the other hand, in 2012 and 2014, the Kolkata Knight Riders, who reached the semifinals, defeated Rajasthan Royals in the last match of the tournament. Captain Dinesh Karthik’s team is performing remarkably well at all levels during Anne’s time and his morale will be even higher when playing against his home crowd.
Opener Sunil Narine and Chris Lynn, Nitish Rana, Shubhaman Gill and striker Andre Russell have been in tatters in Kolkata. The spinners have been contributing to the victory of Kolkata Knight Riders. Therefore, Kolkata depends on Kuldeep Yadav, Piyush Chawla and Narine. Kolkata’s team is balanced because of the fine bowling in the last few matches.
