Kolkata Knight Riders will feel confident as they take on the Sunrisers Hyderabad in the 19th game of the Indian Premier League 2023. The hosts come here with a memorable win against defending champions Gujarat Lions. The win has surely lifted the confidence in the camp. Hyderabad earned their first points in the last game defeating the Punjab Kings.
Kolkata Knight Riders come here with back-to-back wins, and they play at their home ground and shall have the crowds behind them. Sunrisers have a poor record playing at this venue, and this will be on their minds. It will be a big test for the Hyderabad bowlers, and how well they do in this game will be interesting.
It was a win out of nowhere for Nitish Rana's side. Rinku Singh played a blinder to take his side to a 3-wicket win against Gujarat Titans that will be in fans' memory for years. With back-to-back wins, the side will feel confident. They will have a packed house cheering for them. Rana will look to ride this momentum and strengthen the side's position on the points table.
Rahmanullah Gurbaz has to play a good knock at the top and build a strong partnership with N Jagadeesan. Venkatesh Iyer played a solid knock against the Titans, and he must add runs along with Rana. Rinku Singh would look to live the glory of the last game and add quick runs down the order with Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, and Shradul Thakur.
The bowling attack took a beating in the last game, and they need better spells with the new ball from Umesh Yadav and Shardul Thakur. Narine and Varun Chakaravarthy are key bowlers for the side and must do well. Suyash Sharma has looked in good form, and he must keep the scoring under check along with Lockie Ferguson.

Aiden Markram's side finally hit form in the last game after two consecutive losses. They were excellent with the ball and clinical with the bat, earning an 8-wicket win against the Punjab Kings. They face a side in red-hot form, and Markram would like a spirited show from his batsmen. They don't have a good record at Eden Gardens and need a special performance to win.
In three games, the side has the highest opening wicket stand of 27 runs. Mayank Agarwal must score runs at the top along with Harry Brook. Rahul Tripathi played a match-winning knock in the last game, and he needs to add runs in the middle order with Markram and Heinrich Klaasen. The side will need big hits from Washington Sundar and Marco Jansen in the lower middle order.
Their bowlers will feel pressure in this game as KKR batsmen have been in excellent form. Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Marco Jansen need to get early wickets to put the side in a strong position. Mayank Markande is troubling batsmen, and he must do well in the middle overs. T Natarajan, Umran Malik, and Sundar must keep up the pressure on the batsmen for the side to win.

It will be clear skies over Kolkata on April 14. The wicket will be a belter, as we had seen in the first game played here. Batsmen can hit on the up, and score runs easily. Bowlers must get their lines right to do well. The side batting first will need 180 runs on the board to feel confident.
Eden Gardens, Kolkata, is one of the biggest grounds in India with deep boundaries. The wicket is flat and allows batsmen to play their strokes. There is some assistance for the fast bowlers at this ground in the early overs of the game. Spinners do well as the deep boundaries offer them extra protection to experiment with their speed and length.
Bowling with the wet ball with the dew factor is always a challenge in Kolkata. Sides have won more games at this venue, chasing scores than setting one. Hence, the side winning the toss will opt to bowl first.
Sunrisers Hyderabad have got the monkey off the back, winning the last game. However, the side has problems with the bat as their openers aren't delivering the goods. They need to bat well to win this game. The Knight Riders come here with a confidence-boosting win and have their batting line-up in good form. It will make them favorites to win.
