A much motivated Sunrisers Hyderabad will be up against the Kolkata Knight Riders in today’s fixture of the IPL.

Hyderabad have now got two consecutive wins against the Chennai Super Kings and the Gujarat Titans to climb up to the eighth spot in the points table.

Kolkata Knight Riders, on the other hand, lost their last fixture against Delhi Capitals which was a high-scoring one.

Both teams are heavily dependent on their bowlers to do most of the job.

In the batting department for Sunrisers Hyderabad, their top four have been contributing constantly.

Kolkata Knight Riders, meanwhile, have a lot of work to do regarding their batting department.

If we take a look at some player news, then in the KKR camp, Sam Billings is fit and available for selection.

Sunrisers Hyderabad would be hoping that Rahul Tripathi has also recovered from his niggle.
