IPL 2020: Kolkata Knight Riders vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Playing 11

KKR vs SRH Playing 11: In the 35th match of Indian Premier League(IPL), Kolkata Knight Riders(KKR) will face off with David Warner-led Sunrisers Hyderabad(SRH) in their next encounter today's double-header Sunday at Sheikh Zayed International Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi. The match will begin from 7:30 PM IST. KKR has had a mixed season thus far and they will go up next with their best playing 11 against the Sunrisers side.

KKR make two changes Kuldeep Yadav and Lockie Ferguson comes in, for Green and Prasidh Krishna. SRH replaces Shahbaz Nadeem and Khaleel Ahmed by Abdul Samad and Basil Thampi

SRH, on the other side, has also not been so impressive this season in the fantasy cricket league i.e. Dream11 IPL 2020. Both team likely to go with their same lineup. So, it seems to be an exciting rivalry between these two most consistent sides when they clash for the second time in reverse order. KKR makes a big change in captaincy as the 2019 World Cup-winning captain Eoin Morgan replacing Dinesh Karthik a few days ago.

With top 3 teams winning so many of their games, there is a really good chance for the 4th team to get into playoffs with even six wins. And that will keep the three teams who are in the race of playoffs i.e. KKR, SRH and CSK.

Knight Riders win the first of the two matches played between them earlier in the tournament.
