According to the IPL schedule 2022, the 61st match will see the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) take on Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the MCA Stadium in Pune on Saturday, 14 May.

The Kolkata Knight Riders haven't had the best of seasons and are on the brink of getting eliminated. They will bank on the likes of Andre Russell and Shreyas Iyer to keep their slim qualification hopes alive. They face a decent Sunrisers Hyderabad side who have blown hot and cold in the tournament. Despite a five-match winning streak last month, SRH are also in a must-win territory. With both teams keen on getting the all-important win, a thriller beckons in Pune.

Date and Time: 14th May 2022, 7:30 PM IST

Pitch Report

As seen in previous games at the MCA Stadium, bowlers are expected to dominate proceedings. There is ample swing and bounce off the surface, keeping the batters on their toes early on. The spinners will come into play, with the ball likely to grip and turn. Both teams will look to bat first, with dew not likely to play a huge role in the game.

Today’s KKR vs SRH Dream11 match top picks


Nicholas Pooran: Nicholas Pooran has been in decent form for SRH in IPL 2022, scoring a few fifties. He has looked good in the SRH middle order, taking on both the pacers and spinners. Given his form and the uncertainty surrounding KKR keeper Sheldon Jackson's batting position, Pooran is a good addition to your KKR vs SRH Dream11 fantasy team.


Shreyas Iyer: Although Shreyas Iyer has blown hot and cold in the IPL, he has crossed the 300-run mark for his new franchise. Despite having his troubles against express pacers, Iyer has been good in the middle overs. With the KKR captain due for a big knock, he is one to watch out for in this game.


Andre Russell: Andre Russell has been KKR's go-to player in IPL 2022, coming up with explosive knocks with the bat consistently. Russell's knack for picking up wickets in the middle and death overs also holds him in good stead. With the conditions suiting his all-round skill-set, he is a must-have in your KKR vs SRH Dream11 fantasy team.


Bhuvneshwar Kumar: Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been brilliant with the ball this season despite not taking as many wickets as he would have liked. He has managed to swing the ball both ways efficiently, while also holding his own in the death overs. Given his experience and the conditions on offer, Bhuvneshwar could be backed to pick up a wicket or two today.
