Pre-match Analysis

Kolkata Knight Riders will feel confident as they take on the Sunrisers Hyderabad in the 19th game of the Indian Premier League 2023.

With both teams being close to their match-winning combination very early in the tournament, they would look to solidify their position on the points table and try to win over the other side. Kolkata Knight Riders would look to improve their top-order batting performance after the close win against the Gujarat Titans and Sunrisers Hyderabad would look to improve their middle-order performance.   

Probable Best Batter of the Match

Venkatesh Iyer has owned up to the reputation that he created for himself in the last season of TATA IPL and scored a phenomenal 83 in the Kolkata Knight Riders’ crucial encounter against Gujarat Titans. He may be the best batter of the match since he bats in the top order and is in good form. 

Probable Best Bowler of the Match

Mayank Markande got his debut match for Sunrisers Hyderabad in their previous match against the Punjab Kings and he picked up 4 wickets while giving away just 15 runs in his 4 overs. This is why he may be the best bowler of the match. 

Match Details

Sunrisers Hyderabad will take on the Kolkata Knight Riders in the 19th Match of TATA Indian Premier League 2023 at Eden Gardens, Kolkata on 14th April 2023. For the viewers, the match will be telecast live at 7:30 pm on Star Sports network on television and Jio Cinema on your mobile handset. 

Pitch Report

The Eden Gardens is one of the most historic stadiums in India and its pitch has established itself as a batter’s heaven. It primarily has a hard surface so the bounce can be trusted and batters can play their shots. The captain who wins the toss may want to field first. The dew factor in the later half of the game may help in deciding the outcome of the match.

Both teams are in amazing form and have ensured that their performances give them the desired results. The pitch will also suit the firepower that both the teams possess and that is why it is a contest that may go down to the wire. Because of the amazing momentum that the team has, coupled with the home advantage, Kolkata Knight will start as the favourites of this match.
