All the 8 franchises in the Indian Premier League 2020 have already played 1 match each and today on 26 Sept 2020, Saturday match no. 8 between Kolkata Knight Riders vs Sunrisers Hyderabad is happening. Both these teams lost their opening matches earlier this week and its a golden opportunity for these sides to open their account on the points table. Hyderabad would have been rather more disappointed by their last defeat against RCB so they will definitely be looking forward to compensate for it by winning tonight.
The toss for this match between Kolkata vs Hyderabad has already happened and Sunrisers Hyderabad have won the toss after which they have elected to bat first. This is surely a brave decision by the skipper David Warner as this is the first time in this tournament that a captain has opted to bat first after winning the toss. As this 8th match of IPL 2020 is taking place at Sheikh Zayed Stadium located at Abu Dhabi, so SRH team might be looking at posting a huge total of about 190+ runs in their innings of 20 overs.
Kolkata Knight Riders (Playing XI): Sunil Narine, Shubman Gill, Dinesh Karthik(w/c), Nitish Rana, Eoin Morgan, Andre Russell, Pat Cummins, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Varun Chakravarthy, Kuldeep Yadav, Shivam Mavi
Sunrisers Hyderabad (Playing XI): David Warner(c), Jonny Bairstow(w), Manish Pandey, Priyam Garg, Mohammad Nabi, Wriddhiman Saha, Abhishek Sharma, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, K Khaleel Ahmed, T Natarajan
KKR vs SRH 8th IPL Match 26 Sept 2020 Score Updates
Sunrisers Hyderabad – 142/4 – 20 Overs
Kolkata Knight Riders – 145/3 – 18 Overs
Kings Knight Riders won the match by 7 wickets
As far as our prediction for this match goes well we are predicting a Sunrisers Hyderabad victory tonight. Kolkata Knight Riders batting at the top order is a big issue of concern for them and this might cost them badly in this match. Mohammad Nabi and Wriddhiman Saha are the two changes Hyderabad has made for todays match and they will provide a lot of strength to their weak middle order.
