Indian Premier League 2021 is all set to make a comeback after being postponed due to rising COVID-19 cases. The schedule is out, and we will once again see our favorite teams and players battling out in the fields of UAE. Kolkata Knight Riders will take Sunrisers Hyderabad on October 3rd, 2021. Who’ll win the match? We’ll try to figure out the answer in this SRH vs. KKR match prediction.
In the third match of IPL 2021, Kolkata Knight Riders team defeated SRH to mark their first victory of the season. Rahul Tripathi and Nitish Rana significantly contributed to helping the team achieve 187 runs. Both the players managed to bag half-centuries. Furthermore, exceptional bowling allowed the team to defeat Sunrisers. KKR won the match by ten runs in Chennai.
Sunrisers managed to score 177/5 in 20 overs wherein Manish Pandey was the top scorer. The batsman scored 61 runs in 44 balls. Jonny Bairstow also contributed by scoring 55 for 44 balls. Both teams have won the trophy. While Kolkata Knight Riders have won the trophy twice, Sunrisers Hyderabad has been crowned once.
But the IPL 2021 season has not been good for both teams. Presently, they both are at the bottom of the scoreboard. KKR and SRH have played seven matches. KKR won 2 and had 4 points, whereas SRH only won one with 2 points. Evidently, both of the teams are in desperate need of a win.
Since Indian Premier League 2021 was halted in the middle, both the teams have had time for preparation. Hopefully, they will be able to make a comeback and climb up the leaderboard.

The first half of Indian Premier League 2021 did not go well for KKR, but that does not mean the second half has not been the same. The team has also made a replacement to make the playing XI stronger. He replaced Pat Cummins for Tim Southee for the second half of the season.
SRH is at the last position on the scoreboard. The Sunrisers Hyderabad team heavily depends on their overseas player for the win. They do have Indian players like Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Manish Pandey, and Vijay Shankar, who show good performances from time to time. However, Kane Williamson, David Warner, Johnny Bairstow, and Rashid Khan will hog the main focus in the UAE league.
Since there has been a good break between the first and second leagues of IPL 2021, we assume that both teams had a better time to prepare. But if we have to make an IPL 2021 match prediction based on past performance, KKR has better odds of winning. The team has a more organized team than SRH and seems to be in a good position to seize the opportunity.
