SRH vs KOL Dream 11 Prediction: 3rd Match, IPL 2021
SRH vs KOL Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and match preview of IPL 2021. Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kolkata Knight Riders will be played in the 3td match at MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai.
Sunrisers Hyderabad is considered one of the weakest teams in IPL as they do not have proper middle-order or power hitters who can finish the games. They have a good bowling line-up, but the remaining lack international experience except for a couple of bowlers. But they have managed to win the title once and continue to give a tough fight to the remaining teams.
David Warner is the team captain and will be opening the innings, but there is a lot of confusion about who would open along with him. Anyone among Jonny Bairstow, Wriddhiman Saha, and Shreevats Goswami might get a chance to open along with Warner.
At No.3, Manish Pandey will continue as he provides stability and can also play big shots in the death overs. The main issue for SRH was their middle-order, but this time it looks a little sorted with Kane Williamson at No.4 and Kedhar Jadhav also present. Priyam Garg, Vijay Shankar, and Abdul Samad, along with Jason Holder, can play the finisher’s role very well.
The bowling unit looks strong as Bhuvneshwar Kumar is completely fit this season, and Natarajan has also gained some international experience. Sandeep Sharma, Khaleel Ahmed, and Basil Thampi are also excellent options. The current No.1 spin bowler in T20’s Rashid Khan will lead the spin department of Shahbaz Nadeem, Abhishek Sharma, and Abdul Samad.
Sunrisers appear to have a good balance in all the departments this season, but they need to show determination on the field to win the matches.
Kolkata Knight Riders:
Kolkata Knight Riders have some outstanding International players and young talent who have all the capabilities to win the match. They start on a good note but tend to lose the rhythm as the tournament progresses and fail to qualify for the playoffs. They have won two IPL titles so far and finished at 5th position on the points table.
Shubman Gill, who has been in the limelight recently with his performance against Australia and England, will be opening the innings and the left-handed batsman Nitish Rana. The latter has consistently performed with the bat for Kolkata and can also bowl if required.
There is some confusion about who would bat at No.3, but it will most likely be Rahul Tripathi. KKR has probably one of the strongest middle-order with players like Eoin Morgan, Andre Russell, Dinesh Karthik, Shakib Al-Hasan, and Sunil Narine. There is also a possibility that Sunil Narine might also open the innings.
The bowling unit also looks decent, with a good mixture of experienced international players and young Indian talent. Pat Cummins is most likely to lead the fast bowling unit with players like Prasidh Krishna, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, and Shivam Mavi. There is also a probability that Ferguson might also get a chance. The spin department will be handled by Narine and Kuldeep Yadav as Varun Chakravarthy is not yet wholly fit, and Harbhajan Singh might also get a chance.
Kolkata Knight Riders have a strong team, and if they select a good team and play well, they can win the title this year.

(The average score is based on one match played here at this venue so far in this season)
The pitch here is considered to be on the slower side and mostly favors the spin bowlers. Batting is somewhat tricky as the ball doesn’t come on to the bat so quickly, and also, the fast bowlers will have success if they bowl different variations. Dew might also play an essential factor.
(The chasing team at this venue has won one out of the one matches so far in this season)
The weather will be clear skies, and there is no chance of rain during the match.
