the Young all-rounder of KKR with some extra potential may become the backbone of the team in the middle order as he can bring the wicket whenever time call for it and against MI he also proved his worth in the middle order by scoring 53 runs in just 30 balls. in that inning the 26year old boy had beaten not less than six fours and two smashing sixes.
Jason Holder can be the 3rd all-rounder of the SRH team, he took 3 wickets in the last game and has been good with the bat as well. in this IPL 2021 IInd Phase, he picked 9 wickets in total out of five matches with 6.85 economy which is splendid for an all-rounder for its own.
The Sunrisers Hyderabad have nothing to spend or obtain from this match as they are already out of the playoff competition as the bottom-placed team. However, the Knight Riders have everything to win from this match as they are still very many in the mix for a place in the knockouts. That slight pain will make the KKR favorite for this match.
Today’s match prediction: Kolkata Knight Riders to win the match.
