  • April 14, 2023 – 2 PM GMT
  • Eden Gardens, Kolkata

Pitch Report and Weather Conditions

Eden Gardens has been one of the best venues for batting in recent years, with flat pitches and fast outfield to assist. In fact it’s the highest-scoring venue in the IPL since 2017, with the average batting first score of 180 from 26 matches. However, there was good help for spinners in the second innings in one game played here this season.

The weather in Kolkata is expected to be clear with no cloud cover or rain threat on Friday evening. The temperature will be around 28°C.

KKR vs SRH – Match Predictions

Kolkata Knight Riders have won four out of the previous five encounters between these two sides. KKR have an in-form batting unit and a very good spin duo that could choke the SRH batting line-up.

Probable 6s

Kolkata Knight Riders have the likes of Jason Roy, Andre Russell, Rinku Singh, Venkatesh Iyer, Shardul Thakur and Nitish Rana. Sunrisers Hyderabad depend on Rahul Tripathi and Aiden Markram. KKR have struck 31 sixes in three games while SRH have only hit 11 in the same number of games.

Our prediction: Kolkata Knight Riders to hit most sixes in the match at 4/6 (1.66).

Probable Wickets

Umran Malik has the pace to trouble KKR batters, who can be vulnerable against this type of bowling.. Back him to be Sunrisers Hyderabad’ top wicket-taker at 3/1 (4.00). Sunil Narine has picked five wickets in the last two games and is a good bet to be the top bowler for KKR at 11/4 (3.75).

Our prediction: Umran Malik to be Sunrisers Hyderabad’ highest wicket-taker at 3/1 (4.00).

Man of the Match

Sunil Narine picked 2 for 16 against RCB and followed it up with 3 for 33 versus Gujarat Titans. He should enjoy bowling against the RHB-heavy SRH side. Back Narine to be the player of the match at 14/1 (15.00). Among others, Andre Russell, Rinku Singh, Rahul Tripathi and Umran Malik are top betting options.

Our prediction: Sunil Narine to be the Man of the Match at 14/1 (15.00).
