KKR vs SRH: Probable XI of both teams as they face off in a ‘Do-or-Die’ clash

KKR vs SRH Probable XI

In a Do-or-Die encounter, two-time winners Kolkata Knight Riders take on defending champions Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Eliminator of VIVO IPL 10 at Chinnaswamy stadium in Bangalore. 

KKR who had a glorious chance to finish in the top two saw the opportunity slip away after losing three of their last four games. Close defeats against Punjab and Mumbai ensured the Knights finished at No.4 at the end of the league stage. The way their batsmen threw the wickets in the last match against MI would worry skipper Gambhir a lot as they lost a game chasing at Eden for the first time in five years.

Meanwhile, SRH registered a comprehensive victory over GL in their final league game to put their qualification doubts to rest. Moving up the ladder to No.2 briefly, Warner & Co. went down to third after RPS routed KXIP in the final league game. Yuvraj Singh’s availability would be a matter of concern for the Orange Army as they prepare to take on a low-on-confidence KKR squad.

The two teams have met 11 times, with KKR coming out victorious on seven occasions. However, SRH won the last tie between the two with Warner smashing a splendid century.

Incidentally, last year these two teams met in the Eliminator with SRH emerging triumphant. Eyeing a second title, SRH would want a repeat of the same whereas KKR would look to avenge last year’s defeat.
