For the Sunrisers Hyderabad, it has been a season of proper ups and downs. After losing their first two games, they won five on trot and have now lost four on the trot as well. Now, if they want to see themselves in the Playoffs, they must win three on the go and in their quest for those three on the go victories, they face Kolkata Knight Riders in a game starting at 07:30 pm IST on Saturday, May 15, 2022, at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune.
Here's how the Playing 11 of KKR and SRH would look like
With Pat Cummins ruled out of the whole season with an injured back, Kolkata Knight Riders, who went back to the basics in their last game by playing their top 11 players, would now have to go back to Umesh Yadav once again if he is fully fit and recovered and replace Sheldon Jackson with Sam Billings as the wicket-keeping option.
On the other hand, Sunrisers Hyderabad would hopefully have the services of T Natarajan and Washington Sundar and hope that the bowlers fire as it is the bowlers that have lacked in most games that SRH have lost this season. Fazalhaq Farooqi might retain his place in the Playing 11 as SRH management doesn’t seem to go back to Marco Jansen who had bowled brilliantly this season up until the last over against Gujarat Titans which changed the entire momentum of the team.

Ajinkya Rahane, Venkatesh Iyer, Shreyas Iyer(c), Nitish Rana, Rinku Singh, Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Sheldon Jackson/Sam Billings(w), Umesh Yadav, Tim Southee, Varun Chakaravarthy
