Today, strong SRH will face IPL 2021 with KKR at MA Chidambaram Stadium here
New Delhi. The third match of the Indian Premier League i.e. IPL 2021 will be played at the MA Chidambaram Stadium today between Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). While Kolkata is a two-time champion, Hyderabad’s team reached the playoffs last season. Let us tell you that 19 matches have been played between KKR and SRH so far. Out of which 7 have been won by Hyderabad and 12 by Kolkata.
Fast bowling Bhuvneshwar Kumar returns
Talking of all departments including batting and bowling, Hyderabad’s team overshadows the Knight Riders captained by Eoin Morgan. His bowling attack has been strengthened by the return of fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar to the Hyderabad team, which already includes Rashid Khan, Jason Holder and T. Natarajan. Significantly, due to injury, Bhubaneswar could not play in the last season of IPL. However, he did better in the limited-overs series against England.
Batting night riders
The batting edge of Knight Riders was blunted last season, due to which it will be a tough challenge for Hyderabad to overcome the fast and spin attack. If we talk about Knight Riders explosive all-rounder Andre Russell, he failed to show the magic of his bat last season. Batting for the Knight Riders will be pitted against Morgan, Shakib Al Hasan, Shubman Gill and Russell to help them score big against Hyderabad.
However the bowling side of the Knight Riders is quite strong, especially the spin stream. Apart from Sunil Narayan, Harbhajan Singh has also been included in the team. Along with this, Varun Chakraborty, Kuldeep Yadav and Shakib are also holding the front. At the same time, Pat Cummins also has an edge in bowling.
