A closer look at the Knight Riders probable playing XI against Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Eden Gardens play host to Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) as two times Champions Kolkata Knight Riders take on the Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Match 10 of IPL 2018 on Saturday evening.
Kolkata Knight Riders already lost their star signing Mitchell Starc because of an injury. KKR so far has won one and lost one game. They beat Royal Challengers Bangalore at home but lost to Chennai Super Kings away. This will be their third game of the seasonand Dinesh Karthik will look to maintain a perfect home record.
On that note, let’s take a look at the KKR XI that will take the field on Saturday.

With 295 runs in seven games, Lynn was excellent for KKR in IPL 2017. His average last season was 49 and the strike rate 180.
Spinner turned Opener, Sunil Narine surprised everyone in IPL 2017. He opened the batting with Chris Lynn and was exceptional at the top.
He was exceptional for Knight Riders in the first game when he scored a brilliant 50 against Royal Challengers Bangalore.
