In IPL 2018, these two teams had met twice at this venue. On both occasions, SRH had got the better of the hosts. First, the visitors won by 5 wickets in the league stage. Then, SRH defeated KKR in the second qualifier by 14 runs to seal a berth in the final.

But it’s all in the past as both sides gear up for a fresh start. On paper, both teams look equally strong and it’s difficult to predict who will have the upper hand. KKR, traditionally, has been a tough nut to crack at home. But SRH is one team that has nullified their home advantage.

Kolkata Knight Riders Strength and Weakness

The spin attack of KKR is their biggest strength. Sunil Narine and Kuldeep Yadav bowl in tandem and it just doesn’t get better than this, having two of the best at the same time. In the batting department too, they possess good power.

One aspect in which they might suffer is the pace department. Yes, there is Andre Russell but the pacer has been battling through a few injuries. If the opposition attacks the pacers, the inexperience of the youngsters might hurt them.

Kolkata Knight Riders complete squad

Dinesh Karthik, Chris Lynn, Andre Russell, Piyush Chawla, Kuldeep Yadav, Prasidh Krishna, Sunil Narine, Robin Uthappa, Shubman Gill, Shivam Mavi, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Nitish Rana, Rinku Singh, Shrikant Mundhe, Yarra Prithviraj, Anrich Nortje, Nikhil Naik, Harry Gurney , Joe Denly, Lockie Ferguson, Carlos Brathwaite

KKR Predicted XI

Dinesh Karthik (c & wk), Piyush Chawla, Robin Uthappa, Sunil Narine, Andre Russell, Chris Lynn, Kuldeep Yadav, Nitish Rana, Prasidh Krishna, Shubman Gill, Shivam Mavi

Sunrisers Hyderabad Strength and Weakness

SRH will be boosted by the return of David Warner. The Australian couldn’t participate last year because of the ban imposed on him. Despite his absence, SRH did well with the bat. With Warner’s comeback, the batting unit rockets to another level.

The weakness, if any, is in the pace bowling department. With Rashid Khan in the line-up, their spin bowling is in the best hands. But as far as Indian pacers are concerned, there isn’t a big name.

Sunrisers Hyderabad complete squad

Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Deepak Hooda, Rashid Khan, Mohammad Nabi, Shakib Al Hasan, Manish Pandey, Basil Thampi, T Natarajan, Shreevats Goswami (wk), Khaleel Ahmed, Yusuf Pathan, Ricky Bhui, Sandeep Sharma, Siddarth Kaul, Billy Stanlake, David Warner, Kane Williamson, Abhisekh Sharma, Vijay Shankar, Shahbaz Nadeem, Martin Guptill, Wriddhiman Saha, Jonny Bairstow

SRH Predicted XI

David Warner, Shakib Al Hasan, Yusuf Pathan, Manish Pandey, Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Siddarth Kaul, Kane Williamson (c), Vijay Shankar, Rashid Khan, K Khaleel Ahmed
