The opening of IPL 13 has not been good for both these teams. While Kolkata Knight Riders lost their first match against Mumbai Indians by 49 runs, Warner-led Sunrisers Hyderabad lost to Royal Challengers Bangalore by 10 runs in a very exciting match.
But the team that wins the 8th match will be able to open their account in the points table.
Expecting less chances to change playing 11
Despite the defeat in the first match, there is no possibility of any major changes in the team of Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kolkata Knight Riders.
However, Kane Williamson may be back in the Hyderabad team, given the weak middle order. But his fit before the match is important, because Warner had informed about his injury after the first match.
Another change in the team can be seen with Sandeep Sharma, who proved to be very expensive in the first match.
If we talk about Kolkata Knight Riders, then there is no change in the team. Dinesh Karthik defended his players despite a crushing defeat against Mumbai Indians.
Dinesh Karthik said that players cannot be excluded from the team on the basis of just one match. Karthik also favored Morgan and Cummins, who were flopped in the first match.
