IPL 2020 LIVE SCORE, Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Kolkata Knight Riders latest updates: Super OVER, Ball 4: KKR win. Rashid concedes two leg byes. The win has come through leg byes ad KKR cross the winning mark. They collect the two points. Disappointment for SRH.
Preview: Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) are fourth on the IPL 2020 league table and just a spot behind them are Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). The top four teams will qualify for the playoffs and we already have more than half of the league matches done. What it means that we are at the business end of the tournament and every match now comes with a lot at stake for all teams.
Teams cannot afford any more slip-ups and while the mid-table clash between SRH and KKR is not a must-win encounter for either of the sides, still both teams would take the field at Abu Dhabi with nothing but a win in mind.
KKR come into the match after a defeat against Mumbai Indians (MI). They were outplayed in all departments by the defending champions and the recent upheaval at the franchise which saw Eoin Morgan take over the captaincy from Dinesh Karthik was reflected in their performance.
The inconsistency of batters have been a major headache for the Kolkata side and they would hope for them to find their rhythm at Abu Dhabi. Besides a win, another major target for KKR in the clash against SRH would be to find their best line-up.
SRH also have their fair share of problems as they struggle for form. Their batting relies heavily on the first four batsmen " skipper David Warner, Jonny Bairstow, Manish Pandey, and Kane Williamson. To win matches consistently SRH need their middle-order and lower-order to support the top-order. Their bowling has also taken a hit with Bhuvneshwar Kumar being ruled out of the tournament and Rashid Khan leaking runs in the last two matches.
For a positive result on the day, SRH need both their batsmen and bowlers to fire against KKR.
