After getting crushed in their first two games of IPL 2022, the Sunrisers Hyderabad have managed to score four points with consecutive wins. Kane Williamson and co will now lock horns against the Kolkata Knight Riders at the Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai on Friday.
SRH were humiliated when the Rajathan Royals outplayed them in all departments in their first game of the season. The orange army then faced a 12-run defeat versus the Lucknow Super Giants. However, they found out a way to score their first win against the Chennai Super Kings and then made it two in a row by beating the Gujarat Titans.
Going against KKR, the 2016 champions will be missing spinner Washington Sundar, who sustained a split webbing on his bowling hand while fielding against GT. The 22-year-old has taken four wickets and scored a half-century in the 2022 season so far. The franchise said that he will miss at least two matches.
Hyderabad are likely to bring the likes of Shreyas Gopal or Jagadeesha Suchith as Sundar’s replacement.
The Kolkata Knight Riders, on the other hand, come to the game on the back of a loss against the Delhi Capitals. Shreyas Iyer and co are placed in the second spot with six points from five outings.
