Kolkata Knight Riders will face defending champions Sunrisers Hyderabad with confidence on Saturday to retain their winning goal in IPL 2017 . This will be the top two teams in the bowling attack and Kolkata will want to retaliate for the defeat in the eliminator last season. After a win and a defeat, former champion KKR defeated Kings XI Punjab by eight wickets with remaining 21 balls at Eden Gardens on Thursday night. This was his 11th consecutive victory over his home ground, which started in 2012 with a title win. Captain Gautam Gambhir played the master stroke by open innings by Sunil Narine, and both scored 76 runs in the Powerplay. The KKR spinner showed the action with bat and scored 37 runs in 18 balls with three sixes and four fours. Regular opener Chris Lin is out of the team due to shoulder injury.
In the first match against Gujarat Lions, KKR had won by ten wickets in which Lynn and Gambhir had made a record 184 runs in T20 cricket. Mumbai Indians defeated KKR in the second match but in the last night’s win, Narayan was one of the key to the victory while batting brilliantly.
