Kolkata have been boosted by Gautam Gambhir's mind and presence, who is still the most successful KKR leader in IPL history. Gambhir's presence as the mentor will certainly help the franchise plan and fight for the glory this time. Shreyas Iyer will lead them, who will be coming from an injury.

However, the main attraction for the KKR fans will be the most expensive player in IPL history, Mitchell Starc. Starc will be fresh after a break from international cricket and will be rearing to unleash on the Sunriseres batters. Along with him, young uncapped players like Harshit Rana, Vaibhav Arora and Sakib Hussain will be under the spotlight with the ball in hand.

Gurbaz, Phil Salt, Venkatesh Iyer, Nitish Rana, and Rinku Singh can be key hold for KKR in the batting lineup along with Manish Pandey who just like Gautam Gambhir had a successful stint for the men in purple. Andre Russell and Sunil Narine will always be the key factors for them.

There are no reports of injury and everyone in the squad is available for the selection.



Sunrisers Hyderabad have fairly a new-looked team after their failures in recent years. They have brought in Pat Cummins as their leader and that can be a huge thing for them since no other leader in world cricket has been as successful as the Aussie pacer in the last 12 months. Along with him, Aiden Markram and Heinrich Klassen will bring leadership skills to the team as well. Mayank Agarwal and Rahul Tripathi will be their main Indian batters while Umran Malik, Washington Sundar, Shahbaz Ahmed and Bhubaneshwar Kumar will play huge roles with the ball in hand for them.

Travis Head can be one of the players to watch out for in this year's IPL after a successful ICC World Cup 2023 with the Australian Cricket team. Wanindu Hasaranga will not be available for the KKR vs SRH clash as he will be getting ready to play the Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka test series. Players like Mayank Markande and Adil Rashid can come in to fill the leg spinner's role for them.
