sunrisers hyderabad: IPL 2022, KKR vs SRH: Unsettled Kolkata Knight Riders face stern Sunrisers Hyderabad test | Cricket News – Times of India

The more things change, the more they stay the same. The Kolkata Knight Riders campaign in this IPL can be summarized in this single sentence. The page that sets the maximum number of players in this tournament has not yet found the perfect combination. Even though they still have a mathematical chance to get to the playoffs, they no longer have their fate in their own hands.
Even if they win their remaining two matches, they will need many other results to go their way to be able to travel to their home in Eden Gardens for the final phase of the IPL.
On the contrary, Sunrisers Hyderabad has a lot at stake when the two teams meet at the MCA Stadium in Pune on Saturday. The Kane Williamson-led side has often beaten their weight in this edition to stay in contention for a top four spot.

Although they are tied with KKR of 10 points each, the Hyderabad team enjoys a better net turnover rate, after playing one match less and thus has a better chance of qualifying if they win all their remaining three matches.
However, the Orange Army only has themselves to blame for being at such a critical juncture after suffering four losses in a row. Skipper Williamson was right when he said “we need to get a little more creative and come up with ways to change momentum” after losing their last match against Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Cummins quits from IPL
KKR will miss Pat Cummins, who took three wickets against MI in the last match. The Oz test skipper left home after being ruled out with a hip injury. In his absence, KKR hopes that Umesh Yadav can lead the attack.
