Sunrisers Hyderabad will be facing off against Kolkata Knight Riders in the Second Qualifier of VIVO IPL Playoffs 2018 at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. The match will be played on Friday, May 25, 2018, and is scheduled to start at 7:00 PM IST onwards.

Kolkata Knight Riders won the toss and decided to bowl first. When last reports came in, the SRH score was 84/3 in 10.4 overs.

Kolkata and Hyderabad have faced each other twice this IPL, and both got the better off each other on one occasion each. The team which wins this match will be facing Chennai Super Kings in the final of VIVO IPL 2018 in Mumbai on Sunday, May 27.

Sunrisers Hyderabad:

They are expected to go into this game unchanged, as their current formation provides more balance to the side altogether. It's just about turning the valuable contributions into match-winning performances.

Knight Riders News:

They might make only one change to their line-up from the last game, as Tom Curran may replace Javon Searles who hasn't contributed much. The line-up looks quite balanced and settled for now.

Form Guide:

Hyderabad and Kolkata have had some contrasting last few games. Kolkata has won all of their last four games, which includes a victory against Hyderabad, while Hyderabad has lost all of their last four games. Sunrisers' record at the Eden Gardens isn't good either as they have played 6 times and won only once.

Pitch: Eden provided a good batting strip in the last game, which got a bit slower as the game progressed.

There was some turn from the track as well. It's highly unlikely that the wicket has changed in two days.

Weather: The temperature and humidity will be on the high side, but the good thing is that there are no chances of rain whatsoever, hence we will get a complete 40 overs game.
