After a tough outing in Chennai, The Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) are now back to their home ground to host the Sun Risers Hyderabad (SRH) on Saturday (April 14). Play starts at 08:00 pm IST at the Eden Gardens.
Sun Risers are coming into this game with two back to back wins at their home ground. They have defeated Rajasthan Royals in a one-sided affair and later managed to win a last over thriller against Mumbai Indians.
On the other hand, hosts Kolkata Knight Riders have defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore in their first game before losing the last over thriller to Chennai Super Kings in a high scoring game in Chennai.
Manish Pandey, Yousuf Pathan and Shakib al Hasan all played for KKR in the previous seasons and they are now playing for SRH in the ongoing season. It is going to be very interesting to watch them play against their previous team.
