Kolkata Knight Riders are all set to face Sunrisers Hyderabad on Saturday at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. Both KKR and SRH lost their season opener and will be looking for redemption when they face each other in Abu Dhabi in a bid to mark their first win of IPL 2020.

KKR and SRH had a batting order collapses in their last match against Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore respectively. While KKR’s batting line-up crumbled under pressure while chasing a big total, SRH batting order wasn’t up for the challenge possessed by RCB with the batting unit collapsing like a pack of cards following the departures of Jonny Bairstow and Manish Pandey.

KKR vs SRH: Head-to-head stats

Talking about the head-to-head encounters between KKR and SRH, the Kolkata outfit have won 10 out of their 17 encounters with SRH winning the remaining seven. KKR bowlers have to be wary of David Warner as he holds the most runs scored in the matches between KKR and SRH (533). For KKR it was Robin Uthappa with most runs against SRH but he has now moved to Rajasthan Royals. 

Bhuvneshwar Kumar holds the most wickets in matches between KKR and SRH (19) with Umesh Yadav picking the second-most wickets at 11. However, Umesh is now with RCB.

The longer boundaries in Abu Dhabi has come as a headache for many and with the dew factor coming into the play, a score of 170-180 will be a good total to put on board for the team batting first.
