Sunrisers Hyderabad will take on Kolkata Knight Riders at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Hyderabad on May 19, 2018. The match is scheduled to begin at 8:00 PM IST. Sunrisers had beaten the Knight Riders the last time these two teams faced each other.

Live updates:

Hyderabad wins the toss and decides to bat first.

Kane Williamson, the SRH skipper said after the toss: "We will bat. Not a lot of grass on the wicket, but it will stay the same. It's important to build on our performance, playing here is an enjoyable experience. Two changes for us, Bhuvaneshwar and Brathwaite replace Hales and Basil."

Sunrisers are leading the points table with nine wins from their thirteen games while Kolkata is at the third position on the points table with seven wins from their thirteen games.

Sunrisers Hyderabad:

They have lost back to back games, but still they have made sure that they will be among the top 2 teams once the league stages are over. They might go in with the same side unless they want to try some players off the bench. Wriddhaman Saha will be coming into the side if he is fit to play.

Kolkata Knight Riders:

They need to win this game somehow as a victory will assure them a place in the playoffs.

They might make one change, as they Piyush Chawla can come in the place of either Shivam Mavi or K Prasidh, as the pitch at Hyderabad is expected to be a spin friendly track. Other than that, the rest of the XI should be the same.

Pitch: The Hyderabad pitch has been slow and good for spin. The track has eased up as well, so batting might not be too difficult.

Weather: The temperatures will be slightly over 30°C and we can't say that there are no chances of rain.

Where to watch:

The match will be broadcasted live on the Star Sports and Star Sports HD channels. The online streaming of the match can be seen on Willow Tv will broadcast for the viewers in the United States.
