Match and Pitch Condition
Weather: A sunny day with humidity expected to increase during the course of the match with the temperature around 30-32°C.
Pitch condition: In the last eight IPL matches played at this ground, six matches are won by chasing team. The pitch is expected to assist the seamers with a little bit of bounce and swing. The team winning the toss is expected to bowl first.
History: KKR have won six of the eight games against SRH overall and have never lost against them in four games at the Eden Gardens.
Kolkata Knight Riders:
Chris Lynn is injured and there is still no clarity on when he will be fit to play. Rest all players are fit to play. Lynn is still expected to miss a few more matches.
SRH have three left-handed batsmen in their top four, so Kuldeep Yadav is expected to come in for Piyush Chawla.
Trent Boult hasn’t been at his best lately so KKR might look to get Nathan Coulter-Nile into the squad in place of Boult.
In the SRH’s last match, Moises Henriques didn’t play and Warner said ‘he is sick’. Considering that it wasn’t anything serious, he will be back for the clash against KKR. Rest all players are fit to play.
There is a conundrum over fourth foreign player option – Ben Cutting or Mustafizur Rahman. While the former has his explosive batting as an advantage while the latter’s uncanny ability with the ball may get him a chance ahead of Cutting.
They will be thinking over their fifth bowling option too – to go with spin or pace. Since Eden Gardens is more pace friendly they might bring in Barinder Sran or Vijay Shankar as the fifth bowling option ahead of Bipul Sharma.
