KKR vs SRH: IPL 2023 team news

KKR have won two out of three games and are fourth in the points table. However, both their wins have come on the back of unexpected individual brilliance instead of complete team performances. They would be hoping that Rinku Singh’s heroics in the last game will gel the team together and propel them to play at their best.

Liton Das will be available for KKR starting this game, and they might think about including either him or Jason Roy at the top as opening has been their biggest area of concern of late. To do that, they will have to bring in an Indian fast bowler like Vaibhav Arora or Kulwant Khejroliya in place of Lockie Ferguson.

SRH registered their first win of the season in their previous game against PBKS. They seem to have finally got their combination right, with Rahul Tripathi, Aiden Markram, and Heinrich Klaasen taking care of the middle order, and Marco Jansen and Mayank Markande getting off to good starts with the ball in the previous game. They have, however, had three different partners for Mayank Agarwal at the top and would hope that their latest choice, Harry Brook, comes good sooner rather than later.

KKR vs SRH: IPL prediction for today’s match 19

KKR, despite being weaker on paper, have won more games than SRH, who are arguably the strongest team on paper. KKR’s come-from-behind victories in their last two games would have instilled a lot of confidence in the team and the fact that this is a home game for them makes them the favourites.
