Kolkata Knight Riders vs Sunrisers Hyderabad IPL 2022 Live match: Hello and welcome to the live coverage of Kolkata vs Hyderabad IPL 2022 live match.
The 61st match of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 will be played between Shreyas Iyer-led Kolkata Knight Riders and Kane Williamson’s Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune. This match is going to be very important for both the teams. If two-time IPL winners Kolkata Knight Riders loses today, they will become the third team after Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings to be ruled out of the IPL 2022 playoff race. On the other hand, if Sunrisers Hyderabad face defeat then their chances of making it to IPL playoffs will become more tough.
Kolkata Knight Riders have played 12 matches so far this season, out of which they have won only 5 games. KKR is currently at 8th position in the IPL 2022 points table with 10 points. The chances of KKR reaching the playoffs are very less, but even if the team wins its remaining two matches, it will be able to reach only 14 points, so the team reaching the playoff will depend on the performance of the rest of the teams. If Kolkata suffers a defeat today, they will be out of the race for the playoffs.
