Toss Update:

Sunrisers Hyderabad captain Pat Cummins won the toss and decided to bat first in Qualifier 1 of the IPL 2024 against KKR.

Playing XIs:

Kolkata Knight Riders: Rahmanullah Gurbaz(w), Sunil Narine, Venkatesh Iyer, Shreyas Iyer(c), Rinku Singh, Andre Russell, Ramandeep Singh, Mitchell Starc, Vaibhav Arora, Harshit Rana, Varun Chakaravarthy

Sunrisers Hyderabad: Travis Head, Abhishek Sharma, Rahul Tripathi, Nitish Reddy, Heinrich Klaasen(w), Abdul Samad, Shahbaz Ahmed, Pat Cummins(c), Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Vijayakanth Viyaskanth, T Natarajan

The pitch looks a touch dry with a few patches, otherwise, it is rock-hard. The square boundaries are 63 metres each with the straight one at 70 metres. The boundaries are small and a high-scoring match is on the cards. There won't be much spin and hard-hitters will play a crucial role in the match.

Rahmanullah Gurbaz is going to play his first match of the season as Phil Salt has gone back to England and the young Afghan wicketkeeper-batter will open the batting with Sunil Narine.

SRH are going with the same line-up they went in the last game. Apart from Gurbaz, KKR have also made no changes in their team.
