After losing their last two matches in IPL 2020, the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) will aim to get back to winning ways when they battle the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in match number 35 of the season. The Orange Army registered a 69-run victory against Kings XI Punjab, but they suffered close defeats against the Rajasthan Royals and the Chennai Super Kings in their last two matches.
The upcoming contest will be SRH's third afternoon fixture in IPL 2020. They lost their first two afternoon games to the Mumbai Indians and the Royals.

The last time KKR and SRH battled faced other in IPL 2020, the Shahrukh Khan-owned franchise emerged victorious by seven wickets. SRH will aim to avenge that loss on Sunday.
Here's a look at their head-to-head stats vs KKR.
