Kolkata Knight Riders

 

 

Unless there are any niggles, KKR are likely to play the same combination that beat SRH in Qualifier 1. Nitish Rana and Vaibhav Arora are likely to swap in and out as Impact Players depending on whether they bat or bowl first.

 

 

Likely XII: 1 Sunil Narine, 2 Rahmanullah Gurbaz (wk), 3 Venkatesh Iyer, 4 Shreyas Iyer (capt), 5 Nitish Rana, 6 Rinku Singh, 7 Andre Russell, 8 Ramandeep Singh, 9 Mitchell Starc, 10 Harshit Rana, 11 Varun Chakravarthy, 12 Vaibhav Arora

 

 

Sunrisers Hyderabad

 

 

SRH's combination may not be as clear cut. They may not have brought Shahbaz Ahmed in as Impact Player in Qualifier 2 against Rajasthan Royals had they not lost wickets in a hurry. He went on to score 18 and bowl a match-winning spell of 3 for 23 with his left-arm spin. But with as many as four left-hand batters in the KKR line-up - Narine, Venkatesh, Rana and Rinku - SRH might have to come up with an alternative bowling strategy than two left-arm spinners for the final.

 

 

There's also a question around their fourth overseas player. Aiden Markram played Qualifier 2 after missing five games but got out for 1 off 2 balls to continue a poor run of form. When he was on the bench, SRH tried allrounder Marco Jansen and legspinner Vijayakanth Viyaskanth without much success. Is it too late for Glenn Phillips to make an entrance this season?

 

 

Likely XII 1 Travis Head 2 Abhishek Sharma 3 Rahul Tripathi 4 Aiden Markram 5 Heinrich Klaasen, 6 Nitish Kumar Reddy, 7 Abdul Samad, 8 Shahbaz Ahmed/Mayank Markande, 9 Pat Cummins, 10 Jaydev Unadkat, 11 Bhuvneshwar Kumar, 12 T Natarajan

Chasing is better here.

Depends on dew. If there is no dew SRH will be in play due to final pressure.But team that needs less luck is KKR though as they have  a good team for most scenarios. If KKR fails  this they should consider themselves as chokers.

RR couldn’t on Fri same ground, different pitch. Scorecard pressure in final acts as the 12th man bowling

no dew then, dew might be there today as no humidity in Gujarat.

 

I wish scoreboard pressure worked for us on Nov 19
