Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will face off in IPL 2023’s Match No. 47 on May 4 at Hyderabad’s Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium.
The two teams are now ranked ninth and eighth, respectively, in the IPL points standings, respectively, with SRH and KKR.
Up to their last game, when they overcame Delhi Capitals to win an important match, SRH had lost three straight games. With their chances of making the playoffs still alive thanks to this victory, they must win their following match against KKR.
Meanwhile, Nitish Rana-led KKR has had a mixed season, with some respectable wins and some defeats they would prefer to forget.
It’s important to remember that SRH defeated KKR by a margin of 23 runs the previous time these two teams squared off in the IPL 2023. This time, KKR will want to turn the situation and defeat SRH in order to increase their chances of making the playoffs.
If you are playing fantasy cricket and looking for the top captain picks for your SRH vs KKR Dream11 prediction squad, here are three players who could make a big impact in this match.
Andre Russell (KKR)
Despite a poor start this season, the powerful West Indian all-rounder has shown flashes of his brilliance. He has been a standout performer for KKR in prior IPL seasons.
Russell is a top captain to any fantasy team with his 142 runs and six wickets in eight games. Russell has a strong track record against SRH and is anticipated to play a key role in the forthcoming encounter against SRH with both the bat and the ball.
Aiden Markram (SRH)
Aiden Markram, the star player of Sunrisers Hyderabad, is a player you should take into consideration while selecting a captain for your fantasy squad for the next match between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kolkata Knight Riders.
Markram was in excellent form during their previous matchup with KKR, smashing a quickfire 50 off just 26 deliveries. With 132 runs scored in seven games at a strike rate of 138.94, he has been one of the more reliable players for SRH this season.
Varun Chakravarthy (KKR)
This season, the mystery spinner has taken the most wickets for KKR, 13 in eight games at an average of 21.61. Chakravarthy’s variations have been impressive, and he constantly causes trouble for the opposing batsmen.
He enters this game having taken four wickets in his previous game against RCB. Given his recent form and the favourable matchups, Chakravarthy is a great captain choice for your SRH vs KKR Dream11 prediction squad.
