VIVO IPL 2016 Second Eliminator Match SRH vs KKR Live Scores

Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kolkata Knight Riders come up against each other in the Eliminator – the second of the VIVO IPL 2016 Playoff matches. Not a lot separates the two teams; both have eight wins apiece, and only a slightly better Net Run Rate has helped SRH edge KKR to third place in the table.

In between two defeats to Kolkata Knight Riders – Sunrisers Hyderabad have won eight of their 11 matches, and hence are in the Playoffs. However SRH have lost a bit of momentum heading to the business end of the season having lost to DD and KKR in their last two league matches.

This is a do-or-die contest; only one of them will progress. KKR, IPL champions twice, are the team with momentum and have the experience of playing in high-stakes matches such as this. One cannot afford to count out Sunrisers Hyderabad, who have several match-winners in their ranks.

The Protagonists

David Warner and Shikhar Dhawan for SRH, and Gautam Gambhir and Robin Uthappa for KKR, have been absolutely critical to their respective team’s success. This has been Warner’s most-productive IPL season; he has scored 658 runs at a strike-rate of 150.91. He has almost always come out with an attacking mindset and punctured bowling attacks upfront. Dhawan has been more of an accumulator (463 runs at a strike-rate of 118.71), though in the last match he scored 51 of 28 balls – his fastest half-century in the IPL
Gambhir and Uthappa – KKR’s run accumulators – have been the team’s pillars not just this season but over the years. The opening pair often provides a platform for their explosive middle order, with either one or both of them batting well into the second-half of the innings. Yusuf Pathan has had a very successful season too; the all-rounder has applied himself extremely well, mixed caution with aggression, and has reaped the rewards scoring 359 runs (strike-rate of 148.34). Andre Russell, KKR’s man for all situations (188 runs at a strike-rate of 164.91 and 15 wickets), missed the last two matches because of injury; the Jamaican has had a hit and a bowling spell or two in the nets in the last couple of days, and his return to the XI will be a massive boost to KKR.

Trivia

Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kolkata Knight Riders are the only two teams to have employed the same opening pair throughout VIVO IPL 2016. SRH have opened with David Warner and Shikhar Dhawan, while KKR have used Gautam Gambhir and Robin Uthappa at the top.
