Kolkata Knight Riders

KKR has a stronger batting formation with more power. SRH has won its last two games and is starting to put things together nicely. We haven't seen the best of Pat Cummins with the ball, but that might not be too far off.

SRH has successfully won two of their chases and will now play their first game of the IPL 2022 at Brabourne Stadium. This was one of the best batting spots we've seen this season and so the responsibility will be on SRH batting to deliver again.

Abhishek Sharma got into form at just the right time and we've also seen Kane Williamson, Nicholas Pooran and Rahul Tripathi get runs in the last few games. These bode well for SRH and they will look to build on this momentum.

With Aiden Markram and Shashank Singh in the line-up, SRH have a strong lower order but Washington Sundar could miss this match having torn the strap on his right hand. This order looks good when things take a back seat, but a good team can certainly find some weaknesses.

Abhishek Sharma had many runs from Edges in the previous match. Kane Williamson had several chances and Nicholas Pooran will always play high-risk cricket. Luck won't always be on his side and that could be a problem.

One reason SRH has started winning is because their bowling offense is coming together. Bhuvaneshwar Kumar and T Natarajan bowl well and the addition of Marco Jansen to the line-up seems to be doing the trick as well.

Once again, Sundar's absence from the starting XI will affect the team's balance and that could be a problem.

There are a number of match winners in the SRH lineup, but we don't think their individual matchups against KKR are very favorable.

Kolkata Knight Riders

KKR was caught off guard by DC's excellent batting performance in the previous match. It was left to hunt 216 and was only able to manage 171 in response. The problem for KKR seems to be that there were two players in the XI who basically did nothing.

Rasikh Salam threw an over the entire match and batted in 10th place. Ajinkya Rahana opened the batting, made 8 runs from 14 balls (all crucial power play deliveries) and folded. There is no way that KKR can continue to allow this to happen as it will increase the pressure on the rest of the team.

Still, three wins from five games isn't bad and they obviously did some things right. Umesh Yadav will be on the power play, Sunil Narine's consistency, Pat Cummins and Andre Russel as the "X" factors and provide a strong batting lineup.

Venkatesh Iyer and Ajinkya Rahane need to set things up better for the batters to follow, allowing Shreyas Iyer, Nitish Rana and Sam Billings to dominate through the middle.

KKR has a stronger batting formation than SRH and we think they should be able to hit more sixes/fours in most games. That could be a betting market to explore in this game.

KKR isn't the most balanced lineup and has a few players who are out of shape. Overall though, we like how it's played so far and think the best is yet to come for the team.

Prediction

We bet on Kolkata Knight Riders to win. KKR has shown more intent and better T20 strategy in the games played so far. We also think their shots are better than SRH and Umesh Yadav with the new ball also gives KKR an advantage.

Our bet is on the Kolkata Knight Riders to win the game by 1.72.
