Kolkata Knight Riders to face Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL 2022 Game #60
KKR hopes to continue winning run after beating Mumbai Indians by 52 points in last game
The Sunrisers, meanwhile, are coming off a 4-game losing streak
With just 11 games left in the group stage of the 2022 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), one team has already qualified, and a few have put their foot in the door towards qualification, however, for some, the situation has become a little desperate. The Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), who have struggled to find their suits whether due to injury, illness or loss of form of their key players, have constantly cut and changed for return to their original composition.
Considering the way they played against Mumbai Indians, it looks like this combination gives them the best playing XI and even though Pat Cummins was left out of the tournament, KKR have a ready-made replacement in Umesh Yadav , who missed a few games after tightness in his calf. With Venkatesh Iyer showing signs of last year’s form and Nitish Rana, Shreyas Iyer, Rinku Singh as well as Andre Russell in the middle order, the KKR batting roster suddenly looks a bit more powerful and the solidity of ‘Ajinkya Rahane is here to save the day, should they have another meltdown.
Cummins will be mostly missed after his 3/17, however, Tim Southee, Varun Chakravarthy and Sunil Narine have been KKR’s mainstays with the ball and will be hoping to produce another strong performance against a fragile Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) batting line-up . The loss of form of the retained players did not help but if the last match gave signs, they were encouraging for KKR to end the campaign on a good foot, which hangs by a thread, that also very thin .

KKR take on SRH, who also suddenly lost momentum and form for the win after Gujarat Titans lost their confidence by pulling off a heist. The Sunrisers’ major concern is the form of skipper Kane Williamson. With only three games remaining and fate in their own hands, Williamson is surely not going to be let down, however, he needs to start supporting the likes of Abhishek Sharma, Rahul Tripathi and Aiden Markram who have been the crisis men of the Orange. Army.
With Washington Sundar and T Natarajan set to return, SRH’s bowling stocks will be bolstered and hope they will curtail KKR’s long lineup as their bowlers have conceded over 190 runs in the last four games in each of them and they beat second in all of them.

SRH will need the backing of their batters as Umran Malik after a sensational start just faded and dropped over 100 runs in the last three games without a single wicket. The only bright spot for Sunrisers has been Bhuvneshwar Kumar, the smart operator that he is as he continues to cast those miserly spells and keep the score in check at least from its end.
