SRH were in a comfortable postion to win the first match against RCB but lost the flow and collapsed in late game. Mitchell Marsh has been ruled out from tournament and his replacement Jason Holder will have to follow the quarantine rules. We can expect Mohammed Nabi in the playing 11.

Prediction: SRH to win the match

Fantasy team:


Today it’s KKR vs SRH.

KKR are worried with vulnerability of Naraine with Short ball. And they don’t seem to have a plan for back up opener ready. Either Naraine or KKR needs to sort this issue out and quickly at that too.

SRH also have similar kind of issue. Marsh is out and Holder is not yet in UAE. May be Nabi will get a chance today. Kane is also not sure to have fully recovered.

All eyes on promising Shubman Gill. Hope he performs today. Look for a smasher from Warner & Pandey too.


My team for today! What’s yours?


Only 4 wickets down and still managed only 142. To say this was an under performance would be a huge under statement! :roll_eyes:

SRH bowlers have their task cut out! My sympathies to them! However slow the pitch is, This would be difficult to defend.


KKR register their first victory of IPL 2020 with 2 overs to spare. Shubman Gill and Eoin Morgan lead Kolkata to beat SRH by 7 wickets.

Shubman Gill is the Man of the Match for his match-winning knock of 70*off 62 deliveries.
