Kolkata Knight Riders didn’t do much wrong with the ball, but they were greeted with some excellent batting. Now their batters would have emulate the same as KKR chase 229. If they do it, will be the highest successful run chase in the history of the IPL!..

Just as I type this.. Russell gets Abhishek Sharma. but he has played his part with 32 off 17…! SRH 201/4 with 11 balls remaining in the innings. And Russell is walking off the field, it seems like cramps. Shardul Thakur to finish his over. This is Shardul’s first over in the game!

Meanwhile.. Harry Brook has notched up his maiden IPL fifty!
KKR vs SRH : Powerplay Done!
The two big anticipated guns of IPL 2023 have impacted the powerplay. First it was Harry Brook with his fluent stroke making. Then the big Dre Russ striking twice in an over to dismiss Mayank and Tripathi. This is SRH’s best powerplay of the season. KKR would hope their spinners can strangle the batters here, although it isn’t expected to spin big on this wicket.
SRH – 65/2 (6 overs), Harry Brook (39 off 17) & Aiden Markram (1 off 2) at the crease. Dre Russ the pick of the bowlers so far with 2/11 (1 over).

Toss Update: Kolkata Knight Riders have won the toss and will bowl first
The pitch has taken me by surprise. Last game against RCB it was all about the spinners so I thought we would see a shaven pitch with a lot of grass but this pitch is hard and it will hold true. Someone like Umran Malik might enjoy this, and the rest of the pacers who could get good bounce on this wicket. But don’t ball short on this wicket, because the side boundaries are really short… Says Nick Knight in Pitch Report.
Sunrisers Hyderabad will take on the Kolkata Knight Riders in the 19th match of the Indian Premier League 2023 at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. Follow this feed for KKR vs SRH, IPL 2023 Match 19 – Live Score and Update.
Both teams have recently triumphed. Both have recently been filled with confidence. KKR must figure out how to stay afloat without one-man shows. The Sunrisers must continue to perform to their potential, and quickly, because negative momentum may lead to a swift demise.
The Nitish Rana-led KKR started their season with a defeat, but they quickly rebounded with two consecutive victories and a solid Net Run Rate (NRR) of 1.375. On the other end of the scale, SRH opened their season with two consecutive losses before winning their most recent match against Punjab Kings.
