The Kolkata Knight Riders will be hosting the Sunrisers Hyderabad at their fortress in Kolkata, where they started with a win against the Royal Challengers Bangalore. The Sunrisers will be playing their first away game of the season, having won both their matches against Rajasthan Royals and Mumbai Indians. 

But Kollkata present them with a slightly more difficult challenge, though the hosts are just off a close defeat against Chennai Super Kings. They have their strengths in a deep batting line-up boasting of Andre Russell and captain Dinesh Karthik too having brilliant finishing abilities. Kuldeep Yadav gives them the chinaman option with Mitchell Johnson expected to make it to the eleven. They might give a go to youngsters Shivam Mavi or Kamlesh Nagarkoti as well. 

On the other hand, the visiting side will be bolstered by the form of Shikhar Dhawan, who has played important knocks in both matches in the absence of David Warner. They will look forward to the return of their star bowler Bhuvneshwar Kuamr, who missed out the Mumbai match owing to a sore back. Lest he has to sit out again, they have Sandeep Sharma to make up for him, with the lanky Billy Stanlake already proving to be a threat in the tournament. 

The middle-order of Manish Pandey and Shakib al Hasan lends them stability, and it should be a close contest between the Sunrisers, who have won both their games, and the Knight Riders, who might be slightly low on confidence, but have all the ingredients of a good squad.
