KKR look to stem the rot against Sunrisers in IPL eliminator


Two-time winners Kolkata Knight Riders will have to break the agonising sequence of debacles when they clash with defending champions Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL eliminator here tomorrow.

IPLThe winner of tomorrow’s match will face the loser of Qualifier 1 between Mumbai Indians and Rising Supergiants Pune on May 19 in the second Qualifier, which will decide the second entrant of the final.

For KKR, it would take a significant turnaround to reach the second qualifier after they lost four out of seven matches in the latter half of the season.

The Shah Rukh Khan-owned side would like to find their form which saw them dominate the early stages of competition.

KKR would hope Chris Lynn comes to the party, who has the ability to win a game on his own. Lynn had scored a quick-fire fifty off just 21 balls, which was laced with five fours and four sixes, on his return at Chinnaswamy last month, after recovering from an injury.
