Caribbean hard-hitter Nicholas Pooran can be selected as wicketkeeper, KKR expects strong performance

Pune: The 61st match of IPL 15 will be played between Kolkata Knight Riders and Sunrisers Hyderabad at Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium (MCA) Pune today. Talking about SRH, the team has played 11 matches and won 5. His net run rate is -0.031. KKR have won 5 out of 12 matches and have a net run rate of -0.057.

Both the teams have power hitter batsmen and fast bowlers. So the competition is expected to be interesting. Let’s try to find out which players can get imaginary points by being a part of the team.

wicket keeper

Caribbean hard-hitter Nicholas Pooran could be picked as the wicketkeeper. He is in explosive form and can play big shots with ease. If Sunrisers want a place in the playoffs, then Pooran will have to play the long game and stay on the field till the end.

Shreyas Iyer, Nitish Rana and Rahul Tripathi can be part of the team as batsmen. Iyer has played some big matches and is in good form. However, the lack of consistency in his performance is evident. The Kolkata camp will be expecting a batting performance from Shreyas in the off-field scuffle. Nitish Rana is known for his easy sixes. He has shown that work in this season as well.

Rahul Tripathi scored 71 runs in the last match against Kolkata, giving the team a spectacular victory. Sunrisers will once again expect the same from Rahul.

versatile

Andre Russell, Aiden Markram and Sunil Narine can be included in the team as all-rounders. Along with taking wickets in Russell’s bowling, he has also been raining continuously for sixes. He can be a very useful player in terms of imaginary qualities. Aiden Markram is known for his fast batting in the South African middle order. This player helped the team to win many matches on the strength of his brilliant game.

However, SRH lost a few matches due to lack of support from other players. In such a situation, Markram could play another memorable match to keep Sunrisers in the playoffs. Even experienced batsmen are avoiding opening their hands in front of Sunil Narine’s mysterious spin. He can take wickets while bowling economical. If given a chance in batting, he can easily hit big shots.

bowler

Umran Malik, Tim Southee, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Pat Cummins can be included in the squad as Umran’s balls are touching at a speed of 157 kmph. Had he bowled with a quick and accurate line length today, the situation could have been dire for Kolkata.

KKR’s bowling attack looks great after the team joined the Saudi team. Team Saudi has been consistently giving wickets to the team on important occasions. Another strong performance is expected from him. Bhuvneshwar Kumar can wreak havoc on the basis of swing against Kolkata. Pat Cummins can play an important role in the team’s victory with both bowling and batting.
