Dinesh Karthik needs an 8th Indian and 5 runs to be 11th overall to hit 4000 runs at IPL.
Kolkata Knight Riders will face Sunrisers Hyderabad in the 49th game of the Indian Premier League and fight to survive (IPL) 2021. The meeting will take place on Sunday (October 3rd) at Dubai International Cricket Stadium. SRH is out of the playoff race and is proud to play in the rest of the tournament. However, you can dent the campaigns of other teams in the process.
As far as KKR is concerned, they have to play for everything. If they are defeated in this encounter, they will be knocked out of the playoff race. The lineup of Sunrisers Hyderabad hasn’t been decided yet, so two champions may like this field. However, they seem to have lost momentum in the last few games. One of the main reasons is Andre Russell’s injury.
His absence really hurt the team combination. Skipper Eoin Morgan also struggled. Therefore, KKR has several areas of interest. SRH, on the other hand, can play without pressure and get the most out of them. Players such as Jason Roy, Rashid Khan and Bhuvneshwar Kumar have been proven as stars in this format. Therefore, we can expect some action in Dubai.
Meanwhile, let’s take a look at some important statistics and numbers ahead of the 49th game of the Indian Premier League 2021.
