IPL 2017: Unchanged KKR Bowl First; Nehra, Hooda Make Way For Bipul, Siraj 

IPL 2017: Unchanged KKR Bowl First; Nehra, Hooda Make Way For Bipul, Siraj

In a quest to continue their winning run, Kolkata Knight Riders won the toss and decided bowl first, keeping in mind the dew factor that will come into play later in the second innings of the game.

Visitors went up with an unchanged squad, as Gautam Gambhir found no use in tinkering with the winning combination.

On the another hand, Ashish Nehra again missed out and it is the local boy Mohammed Siraj who replaced him. Deepak Hooda was also dropped in favour of spinner Bipul Sharma.

Sunrisers Hyderabad has won all the four games they have played at their home ground and they will look to continue their form over here.

Here is what both the captains said at the time of the toss –

David Warner: 

“Let’s hope we make it five out of five here in Hyderabad. We have been playing well at home. We got to make the most of it. Hooda and Nehra are out. Bipul and Siraj are back.”

Gautam Gambhir: 

“We are looking to bowl. I don’t think the wicket will change much and we are chasing well. They are a very good side, we need to play well. We are playing the same team.”

Here is the playing XI of both the sides –

Sunrisers Hyderabad (Playing XI): David Warner(c), Shikhar Dhawan, Kane Williamson, Yuvraj Singh, Moises Henriques, Naman Ojha(w), Bipul Sharma, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Siraj.

Kolkata Knight Riders (Playing XI): Sunil Narine, Gautam Gambhir(c), Robin Uthappa(w), Manish Pandey, Sheldon Jackson, Yusuf Pathan, Colin de Grandhomme, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Chris Woakes, Kuldeep Yadav, Umesh Yadav.
