I am Paulami Chakraborty, and I will be bringing to you all the live updates from this tie. Kolkata have been off to a fair start in the tournament so far, having won two of the three games played so far, as they are placed second in the table. As for Hyderabad, they too have come up with a similar performance like Kolkata, and are placed third in the table.

The biggest setback for KKR currently is the injury of their star opener Chris Lynn, whose innings kick-started KKR’s journey in IPL 10. However, the team found an unexpected replacement in their spinner Sunil Narine, whose fast-paced innings took the burden off KKR’s middle-order, handing them a comfortable victory. Captain Gautam Gambhir is in a supreme form and in-form Manish Pandey is another name the team can bank on for a stellar performance with the bat. The line-up further consists of Robin Uthappa and pinch-hitter Yusuf Pathan to ensure the knights get good runs on the board.

David Warner’s army is off to a fruitful journey in IPL 10 as well. The reigning champions have made their intentions clear with their performance so far that they are not ready to give up the title. The top-order consisting Shikhar Dhawan, Moises Henriques and Yuvraj Singh have performed consistently with captain Warner setting example for all of them. However, their middle-order batting has not been tested yet and will have to fire up once the top tumbles. IPL 2017 Points Table, Match Results & Team Standing
