The 3rd match of IPL 2021 will see Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) taking on Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on 11th April.

The match between the two is scheduled to start at 07:30 PM IST. Star Sports will broadcast the match on TV, and the live streaming of the game will also be available on the Disney+ Hotstar VIP app.

Preview: Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Kolkata Knight Riders, 3rd Match

After having a decent cricket campaign in the last edition of the IPL, Sunrisers Hyderabad is all set to take on KKR in the first IPL 2021 game. For SRH, the duo of Wriddhiman Saha and David Warner will look to get their team off to quick starts. Kane Williamson is another key asset for the Sunrisers as he adds tremendous value to his side with his leadership and experience. Vijay Shankar and Abdul Samad form the all-rounders unit for SRH and will be looking to contribute with both the bat and the ball. Kedar Jadhav, who has been recruited by the franchise due to his experience, shouldn’t be needed if Jason Holder and Shankar play.

Their opposition, Kolkata Knight Riders will enter the game with an enviable roster. For KKR, Shubham Gill will open the batting along with Rahul Tripathi. Dinesh Karthik, who passed on the captaincy to Eoin Morgan in the middle of IPL 2020, is the first choice wicket-keeper in the squad. Nitish Rana, who has aggregated more than 300 runs in each of the last four IPL seasons, should be looking to bat at no 3. Indian international Prasidh Krishna will be one of the main bowlers for KKR, with Kamlesh Nagarkoti and Harbhajan Singh likely to be other Indian bowlers in KKR XI.

Pitch Report

The pitch at the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium tends to offer a slow and dry pitch, which makes it crucial for teams to place special emphasis on their spin department. Considering the stats of the recent matches here, the basic nature of the pitch might remain the same for the first IPL game.
