The Eden Gardens pitch is one of the best batting pitches in India. However, it also tends to favor spinners, who enjoy bowling here. So, you can expect an engrossing tussle between the bat and the ball.
Let’s not forget that the Knight Riders have a young and inexperienced team. This may end up working against the side when they take on the highly talented Sunrisers. However, fans will be hoping that Kolkata Knight Riders can win convincingly and increase their chances of making it to the playoffs.
If you take individual players, Knight Riders have great players. However, if you take each team, you will realize that Sunrisers Hyderabad have a better equipped team, with great batting and bowling depth compared to Kolkata Knight Riders. That is why chances are high that Sunrisers may win in Eden Gardens.
Here are the reasons:
With no David Warner in 2018 IPL, Sunrisers will be hoping to get Alex Hales to score runs rampantly.
Kane Williamson has been named the captain and is a reliable number three batsman.
Shikhar Dhawan and Alex Hales will make an explosive opening pair.
Deepak Hooda has come to age and will be able to score quick runs along with Yusuf Pathan.
Shakib Al Hasan will be a major wicket taker and will also end up being the finisher for the side.
