SRH vs KKR Head to Head Records: The SportsRush presents for you the Head to Head statistics for the third match of IPL 2021.
The third match of the ongoing 14th season of the Indian Premier League will be played between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kolkata Knight Riders in Chennai tomorrow.
In what will be their respective season openers for both the teams, it goes without saying that both of them would want to start the tournament on a winning note.
With wicket-keeper batsman Jonny Bairstow starting to bat in the middle-order for England, Hyderabad might use him in a similar role. While the move would add weight to their middle-order, it will also allow SRH to open the batting with captain David Warner and Kane Williamson.

That being said, it will be interesting to see if Warner and team management take the field with three specialist overseas batsmen. Knight Riders, on the other hand, have a bit of work to do regarding their opening combination and Sunil Narine’s role in the XI. With Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan also in the squad now, Eoin Morgan might pick him ahead of the West Indian all-rounder.
