Sunrisers Hyderabad will lock horns with Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the match 38 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) in Hyderabad on Sunday. The game is an interesting one for both teams as they have eight points each, but Kolkata have played a game more than Hyderabad. Therefore, Dinesh Karthik-led unit will need a positive result to keep things under control moving forward. In the previous meeting between both teams earlier in the competition, it was KKR who came out on top with a six-wicket margin.
Knight Riders will come in the match on Sunday low on confidence as they've suffered a narrow 10-run defeat against Royal Challengers Bangalore on Friday, which was their fourth consecutive loss. In the batting department, the visitors will be relying on the likes of captain Karthik, in-from Andre Russell, dangerous Chris Lynn and veteran right-hander Robin Uthappa to score bulk of the runs, whereas on the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of spinners Kuldeep Yadav, Piyush Chawla and Sunil Narine to provide timely breakthroughs.
On the other hand, Hyderabad will come in the match feeling upbeat after registering an impressive six-wicket win in their previous match against Chennai Super Kings. In the batting department, the home side will be relying on the likes of Australia's David Warner, England's Jonny Bairstow and captain Kane Williamson to score bulk of the runs, whereas on the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of pacers Bhuvneshwar
