KKR vs SRH Live: Toss in 15!
The weather is a little bit muggy, so the comfort levels of players are going to be tested. In terms of ground dimensions, it is a 75m straight boundary, but the square boundaries are shorter at 64m and 65m. That means a lot of sixes. Toss is just 15 mins away!

Rahul Tripathi will be up against his former team, playing the role of holding the innings together in the middle overs. Tripathi is someone who can rotate the strike in the middle overs and land a counter-attacking punch with his ability to tackle spin.

KKR vs SRH Live: Harry Brook continues to struggle!
SRH’s high-profile Harry Brook, who has been signed for Rs 13.25 crore, has so far managed scores of 13, 3 and 13. A member of the England side that won the T20 World Cup last year, Brook has looked out of sorts in the opener’s role, and it would not be a bad idea to bring him down the order.

As for SRH, the Aiden Markram-led side looks strong on paper after some big buys like Harry Brook, Mayank Agarwal and Heinrich Klaasen. Overflowing with white-ball specialists, SRH, however, have failed to impress in their first two matches. Boosted by the win, the Brian Lara-coached side would look to hold on to their winning momentum and give KKR a strong fight at home.

After what he did for KKR against GT, Rinku Singh will be cynosure of all eyes when he steps into the ground during match vs SRH.

KKR vs SRH Live: KKR on a two-match winning run!
Having started off their campaign with a reversal against PBKS, KKR found two unlikely heroes in two matches to get their campaign up and running. First, it was Shardul Thakur’s storm with the bat against RCB before a Rinku Singh special took them home against LSG in a last-ball thriller.
