Toss: Hyderabad XI, who chose to bowl first
Preview:There has been plenty of talk about Kolkata bowlers, who failed to defend 202 against Chennai in their last game. Vinay Kumar, in particular, copped severe criticism and had to turn to social media to remind fans about the times when he has defended lesser runs in an over against better quality batsmen. The decision to not complete Kuldeep Yadav’s quota was also questioned by experts!
While one must allow Karthik to settle into his role as captain, he must also realize the fact that this is a high intensity tournament where people scrutinize every move of a player! He might as well have to take the brave call of dropping a senior pro like Vinay for a younger player like Kamlesh Nagarkoti or Shivam Mavi.
Hyderabad had a lucky escape in their last game as they had to rely on big Billy Stanlake to take them to a victory off the last ball. Small targets can often be tricky ones and one could say that the Hyderabad batsmen became a little complacent once Shikhar Dhawan departed. The stakes will be particularly high for someone like a Yusuf Pathan, who is an experienced campaigner and has had his performances closely monitored because of his hit and miss career so far!
Rashid Khan was brilliant in his last game as he stifled the Mumbai batsmen and will be looking to outperform the Kolkata duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Sunil Narine. He could be assigned with the task of Andre Russell, who was in blistering form the other night against Chennai. Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s absence was hardly felt in the last game and that just goes to show how good a team Hyderabad have.
There hasn't been an individual hundred scored at the Eden Gardens since Rohit Sharma's unbeaten 109 for MI in 2012.
Hyderabad have lost all their five matches against Knight Riders in Kolkata.
Narine needs three wickets to become the third foreign player after Malinga & Bravo to take 100 wickets in IPL
Vinay Kumar has bowled 3.5 overs in this tournament so far and has conceded 65 runs at an economy rate of 16.95 runs per over.
Vinay Kumar has now conceded 20 sixes in the 20th over of the IPL – the most by any bowler. Ashoke Dinda comes next with 19.
Billy Stanlake became the second number 11 to hit the winning runs for his team in a T20 game in India. The first was Yuzvendra Chahal, who did it for the Mumbai Indians against the Trinidad & Tobago team in the 2011 Champions League.
