VIVO IPL 2021: SRH vs KKR Live & Preview
- Sunrises Hyderabad have a Bowling as well as settled batting lineup.
- Kolkata Knight Riders have a strong batting but some loophole in the bowling lineup.

Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Kolkata knight Riders: The 3rd match of VIVO IPL 2021 will be played between these two teams SRHvKKR, The match will begin on 11 April at 7:30 pm.
Last year, Sunrisers Hyderabad was finished in 3rd Position, Kolkata Knight Riders was Finished in 5th Position in IPL 2020. This time in VIVO IPL 2021, both teams will start season 14 with strong teams.
Kolkata Knight Riders haven’t had a good IPL campaign for a couple of years now. In both 2019 and 2020, they failed to make it to the playoffs. But things are expected to be different this time, with the ICC Cricket World Cup-winning captain Eoin Morgan leading the team from the very beginning.
The Knight Riders have made some clever additions to their team, which includes the Bangladeshi all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan. They will start their campaign with a match against Sunrisers Hyderabad, who made the playoffs last season but couldn’t make it to the finals. Hyderabad’s team was already a pretty solid unit, so whatever additions they have made at the auction table are simply to add to their depth, and not replace any first-team player.
Hyderabad reached the semifinals of IPL 2020 and would like to ideally win the cup for the second time this season. They too have the experience in the side to pull off the feat.
There are no injury concerns in both camps. All their players are fit and available. The sides will choose the best possible playing XIs for the first game. Both teams have enough options and good bench strength as well.
Date: April 11, 2021 (Sunday).
Time: 07:30 PM (IST), 02:00 PM (GMT).
Venue: MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai
SRH vs KKR: Head to Head:
|Sunrisers Hyderabad||Head to Head||Kolkata knight Riders|
|7 won||19 Matches||12 won|
|128 runs||Lowest Score||101 runs|
|209 runs||Highest Score||183 runs|
As we saw in previous game of IPL 2021 between MI vs RCB, the Chennai track is not a completely bowling-friendly surface. It has enough purchase for the batsmen as well, provided they take their time to find their footing on the track.
The weather is expected to be dry and the surface will be on the slower side. There is a little bit of dew that comes into play but that can vary from match to match. Opening batsmen have the best conditions to score in and the wrist-spinners are usually the ones that are the hardest to score off.

Batting: Sunrisers Hyderabad’s leading run-scorer of IPL 2020, David Warner has predominantly played 50-over and Test matches recently. In his last 5 IPL games, he scored 60+ runs on two occasions. Jonny Bairstow was in magical form in the recently concluded ODI series against India.
Bowling: The MA Chidambaram track didn’t turn as much as many expected it to in the first game of IPL 2021, but the pitch doesn’t matter in the case of Rashid Khan. The Afghan spin sensation can get the ball to turn on any given condition. He has picked up 6 wickets in his last 3 T20 games.
Predict XI: David Warner (C), Jonny Bairstow, Manish Pandey, Kane Williamson, Vijay Shankar, Priyam Garg, Abdul Samad, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, T Natarajan, Sandeep Sharma.
Batting: Shubman Gill also, just like Warner, hasn’t played T20 cricket lately, but he was Kolkata Knight Riders’ leading run-scorer in the previous edition. He scored 25+ runs in all of his last 3 IPL games. Andre Russell has recovered from all the niggles he had and is looking as agile as ever before. In his last 5 games, he has picked up 5 wickets and has also scored 70+ runs.
X-Factor: Shakib Al Hasan’s inclusion gives KKR a great balance, since he can be used anywhere in the batting order and he is also a bowling option for the powerplays.
Bowling: Pat Cummins had his struggles in the last season, but he still finished as KKR’s second-highest wicket-taker. He picked up 6 wickets in his last 2 games, which included a 4-fer against Rajasthan Royals.
Predict XI: Shubman Gill, Rahul Tripathi, Nitish Rana, Eoin Morgan (C) Dinesh Karthik (wk), Sunil Narine, Andre Russell, Pat Cummins, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Prasidh Krishna, Varun Chakravarthy/Harbhajan Singh
