Both KKR and SRH will fight to keep their hopes up for the playoffs.
Kolkata Knight Riders will fight Sunrisers Hyderabad in match 61 IPL 2022 at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune on 14 May. Although Calcutta have a mathematical chance of reaching the playoffs, the qualifying scenario for them is extremely difficult after their heavy defeat by the Lucknow Super Giants last week in 75 races.
Although the two-time winners defeated the Mumbai Indians by 52 runs in the final game, they just can’t afford to slip away as the defeat knocks them out without additional formalities. The next two wins will give them 14 points.
Hyderabad, on the other hand, was perhaps the most unpredictable side of the competition. Having lost in the opening two matches, c Kane WilliamsonThen the team led a great comeback with five wins in a row. However, then they ran out of fire and sulfur, and after that they received four defeats in a row. In fact, the Orange Army failed to find a winning moment after defeating the Gujarati Titans in a thriller with the last ball a couple of weeks ago.
However, unlike Kalkata Knight Riders, Sunrisers Hyderabad have an extra match, which means that if they win the rest of the matches, they will get 16 points, which could benefit their hopes of qualifying for the playoffs provided the best network execution speed with higher margin.
Terms and conditions
It should be noted that the throw will play an important role as it is a virtual knockout for both sides. Usually the team that wins the draw decides to go to the cup first, given the race factor later in the competition, but the wicket at the MCA Stadium is very useful for those who hit to score in the first overs, and she too offers a lot of spinning help during the competition. So the captain, who calls him right in the draw, will look for the first bat and publish a competitive result on the board.
Game combinations for KKR vs. SRH
Kolkata Knight Riders would have preferred to exhibit the same XI that played an important role in recording a great victory over the Mumbai Indians.

Forecast XI: Venkatesh Ayer, Adjinkya Rahane, Shreas Ayer (c), Nitish Rana, Sam Billings (Sun), Andre Russell, Singh Market, Sunil Narine, Tim Savti, Umesh Yadav, Varun Chakavarti

Forecast XI: Abhishek Sharma, Kane Williamson (c), Rahul Tripati, Aiden Markram, Nicholas Puran (Sun), Shashank Singh, Jagadisa Suhit, Marka Jansen, Bhuvneswar Kumar, Umran Malik, Kartik Thrust
