Head-to-head:KKR and SRH have faced each other 12 times in the IPL. The match at iconic Eden Gardens promises to be a close one and whichever team enjoys the pressure will be in pole position to win the match. Billy Stanlake took two wickets- Nitish Rana (18 runs off 16 balls) and Andre Russell (9 runs off 5 balls) and Shaqib took the wicket of Chris Lynn (49 runs off 34 balls) and Sunil Narine (9 runs off 10 balls).
He then sent back Dinesh Karthik just as the Kolkata skipper was starting to threaten and added one more to finish with figures of 3/26 in yet another disciplined performance. Although Bhuvneshwar Kumar's absence paved way for Sandeep Sharma in the side. Any/all of the five bowlers at Williamson's disposal are worthy picks, while the rest of the batting is a risk. Star Afghan spinner Rashid Khan went wicketless. He has contributed in each of the three opening matches, with 2-21 against Kolkata enough to see him named player of the match. Curran came into the team due to Johnson suffering a niggle, and now KKR have to decide which pacer to play.
Delhi have issues to address especially in their bowling department which has failed to deliver in each of the three games played so far. Both teams will want to bowl first, and whoever does will probably win the match.
All-rounder Shakib kept the squeeze on, ending the promoted Sunil Narine's short and scratchy innings, and claiming the big wicket of Lynn with a superb one-handed grab off his own bowling.
