SRH had finished at the top of the points table last year. On the other hand, KKR was at No.3. The two teams had met in the second Qualifier in Kolkata. SRH had defeated the hosts to make it to the final. It will be a repeat of the Qualifier as the hosts would look to avenge the defeat.
Both the teams are pretty strong. Before the player auction, they had retained the core and managed to rope in a few more big names. The surface in Kolkata is expected to offer big runs but the presence of quality spinners in either side will make it tough for the batsmen.
