Sunrisers Hyderabad will take on Kolkata Knight Riders at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Sunday as action continues in Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020. While KKR are sitting in the fourth spot in the points table, SRH are close fifth. 

KKR have eight points to their name while SRH have six points. Given KKR’s poor net run-rate, SRH will go fourth if they win the encounter in Abu Dhabi on Sunday. However, good news for KKR is that Sunil Narine has been cleared of the reported suspect action and can reproduce the same action going forward in IPL 2020. 

He was dropped from the playing XI as Narine could have been banned from bowling had his action got reported again in the tournament. However, now with IPL’s report, he can continue with his bowling action.
