KKR vs SRH IPL 2024 Match 3: Check Fantasy Team, Playing XIs, Injury Updates & Pitch Report

In Match 3 of the IPL 2024, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) are set to clash at Eden Gardens, Kolkata, marking the beginning of their campaign on Saturday, March 23 at 7.30 PM IST.

Both teams will be eager to reverse their fortunes after failing to reach the playoffs in the previous season. Kolkata ended seventh in the points table, securing six wins out of 14 matches, accumulating 12 points.

Sunrisers Hyderabad had an even worse season, finishing at the bottom of the table with only four wins from 14 matches, collecting merely right points. To fix things, they appointed Pat Cummins as their new captain, investing a massive Rs 20.50 crore for the World Cup-winning leader. 

After missing their regular captain Shreyas Iyer due to a back injury last season, KKR welcomes his return for this edition. However, concerns persist about his availability for all matches due to fitness issues. KKR’s resurgence will heavily rely on the guidance of their seasoned mentor Gautam Gambhir, who is back with the team for a second innings. Head coach Chandrakant Pandit will also be one of the key figures responsible for bringing about a reversal of fortune for KKR. 

Ahead of the match, here is all you need to know. 

KKR vs SRH Injury Update

KKR do not have any injury concerns. Their four overseas players are expected to be Mitchell Starc, Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, and Phil Salt. Sunrisers, however, will be without Wanindu Hasaranga due to international commitments. Pat Cummins will captain the team, with Marco Jansen, Heinrich Klaasen, and Travis Head likely to fill the other three overseas player slots.

KKR vs SRH: Kolkata Weather and Pitch Report

Traditionally, the pitch in Kolkata favours spinners, providing ample turn and grip, which poses challenges for batsmen to score runs easily. High-scoring matches are less common, and the team batting first often has a better track record.

Expect temperatures around 27 degrees Celsius in the evening. With no rain threat looming, a full game of 40 overs is likely on the cards.
