Sunrisers Hyderabad would look to heap more misery on Kolkata Knight Riders and continue their winning momentum when the two sides clash swords in an Indian Premier League return leg fixture here today.

Placed fifth, a rung below KKR, in the points table, Sunrisers will take on an opponent low of confidence after a string of four losses in a row. On Sunday, it will be Rashid against Russell as the latter hasn't had so much success against the turning ball. In their last meeting at the Eden Gardens, KKR won by six wickets with Russell smashing a 19-ball 49 chasing 182.

SRH vs KKR: SRH look to continue winning run against KKR

The Sunrisers broke Chennai Super Kings' winning streak, and secured a vital victory after three losses on the trot, with a six-wicket win at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium earlier in the week.

The likes of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Khaleel Ahmed bowled in good areas to keep the run flow in check while Rashid Khan scalped two wickets conceding just 17 runs.

With the bat, it was a Jonny Bairstow and David Warner show once again as the pair guided the team to a facile victory by sharing a 66-run stand for the first wicket.

KKR, who lost to Royal Challengers Bangalore on Friday night, have looked out of sorts in their recent meetings with their middle order not showing up and the over reliance on Andre Russell now becoming a cause of worry.

Chasing a stiff 214 for victory, Andre Russell smashed a typical 25-ball 65 with Nitish Rana scoring an unbeaten 46-ball 85.

But in the middle overs, after KKR had lost the first three wickets inside the powerplay, Robin Uthappa and Rana stumbled along, accumulating just 46 off 41 balls in a partnership that had Russell fuming in the dugout.

Skipper Dinesh Karthik, who recently trumped Rishabh Pant to make the 15-member World Cup squad, has also been out of form. Russell, at the post match press conference, said he should bat higher up the order when KKR are in those situations, and it remains to be seen now what the think tank does against Sunrisers.

KKR's bowling, which is traditionally dependant on spin, have also looked colourless with India star spinner Kuldeep Yadav going for 59 runs on Friday.

SRH vs KKR: Dream 11 Top 6 Picks

From the Hyderabadi team, picking Rashid Khan and David Warner would be a wise decision. Rashid Khan is one of the best performing leg-spinner in the IPL and having a great bowler by your side can never go wrong. Over his 32 match IPL career, he has taken 39 wickets, making him a promising choice. David Warner is an explosive batsman with more than just a few tricks up his sleeve. Jonny Bairstow is another consistent player you've got to pick.

KKR has a great bowling lineup and you should have at least two of them. Kuldeep Yadav and Piyush Chawla have both been consistent performers in this season of the IPL and we expect them to perform similarly in this game as well. Though DC is something of a soft target, they have to keep in mind not to take the team lightly. Dinesh Karthik is an explosive batsman who has shown his potential on the field. He has quickly become a fan favourite and with his batting prowess on side, you’ve got an unbeatable team.
