The second match of Sunday’s doubleheader will see Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will lock horns with Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. It will be a crucial game for the KKR, who will be desperate to pocket two points to keep themselves floating in the top-four race against SRH, who have already bowed out of IPL 2021.
KKR received a lot of flak for their poor team selection against Punjab Kings which cost them the game. With Lockie Ferguson and Andre Russell out owing to injuries, KKR are striving to find a balance in their playing XI.

Kolkata will be keen to play all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan to strengthen their bowling unit. On the other hand, they will hope all-rounder Venkatesh Iyer to continue his exploit with the bat at the top-order.
On the other hand, SRH, who are already out of contention, will look to play some young cricketers to give them an opportunity to prove themselves at the biggest stage. The Kane Williamson-led will hope to cause some upset in the tournament.
