The Kolkata Knight Riders team is also under pressure right now. The team has already played 12 matches and won just five. With that .. if Kolkata also loses in the day match, it will be difficult to stand in the playoff race. So .. the match is likely to be interesting. But .. Sunrisers Hyderabad would have lost poorly in the last four matches played .. but Kolkata .. would have won both of the last four matches.
Take a look at the head-to-head records between Hyderabad and Kolkata. It looks like the Kolkata team has the upper hand. The two teams have met in 22 matches so far, with Kolkata winning 14 of them. Hyderabad won only the remaining 8 matches. In the latest season, the two teams clashed once on April 15. In that match, Hyderabad chased down the 176-run target set by Kolkata with 176/3 in 17.5 overs.
