Cricket Free Tips | IPL 2021, Match 49: Kolkata Knight Riders vs Sunrisers Hyderabad

The Indian T20 League’s Match 49 will pit Kolkata Knight Riders and Sunrisers Hyderabad against each other. The former set a challenging goal of 166 against Punjab but could not defend it and were defeated by 5 wickets. They did, however, show unique characters to carry the game to the final over.

On the other hand, Hyderabad lost their previous game to Chennai, ending their chances of making the play-offs. The squad will strive to punch above its weight in this match and improve their standings in the points table. Kolkata, on the other hand, requires a victory to keep their play-off hopes alive.

 

Weather
With an average temperature of roughly 34°C, it should be a pleasant evening in Dubai.

 

Pitch
The hitters have had a good time in Dubai, with plenty of carries and a little spin. The seamers should be the biggest threat with the ball, though Rashid Khan and KKR’s spinners could do well. On this surface, a total of 165-170 may be considered par.
