KKR vs SRH Match Toss Prediction
Both sides have won the toss and inserted the opposition to bat at some point already in the tournament. Our prediction is that both teams will choose to field first in this game if they win the toss.
KKR vs SRH Pitch Report
Eden Gardens is a good batting wicket in Kolkata and we expect the pace bowlers to have to work hard to take wickets. Bowlers with accurate cutters and spinners will enjoy this surface.
This batting surface helps the team batting second to have more chances of batting. Out of a total of 79 IPL matches played here, 47 have been won by the chasing team.
But in the last match we saw KKR defending a total of 204 and winning by 81 runs. 3 KKR spinners picked 9 wickets and made a difference. Spinners will play a big role once again in this match.
Kolkata Weather Report
It will get more humid as the evening progresses but will not go above 45%. The temperature will be very hot during the day and in the mid to high 30s during this match.
