The orange army Sunrisers Hyderabad is playing with Shahrukh Khan’s Kolkata Knight Riders. Two brilliant sides and two brilliant overseas captain are leading their respective sides. Rashid Khan, Andre Russell, Kane Williamson and many more stars to watch out of for in the third game of IPL 2021.
We’re bowling first. This wicket will play a little different, it’s a lot drier. There wasn’t much dew in the last training session, and so that won’t make much of a difference. We know what we can chase to be honest, and we prefer doing that. Our foreign players are myself, Rashid Khan, Nabi and Jonny Bairstow,” David Warner opted
I haven’t looked at the coach dynamic, but they have been magnificent in the background. We missed out narrowly last year with qualifying so we will try and go one better this time. Our four foreign players are Russell, Shakib, Cummins and myself.” Eoin Morgan added
