Hyderabad are back with the playing XI that brought them some success this season. They are bowling first and will be raring to go as Hyderabad players walk out to the middle. Venkatesh Iyer and Ajinkya Rahane are the openers for Kolkata. Bhuvneshwar Kumar will start with the ball for Hyderabad. Here we go...
The captain of Hyderabad, Kane Williamson says they played on the surface earlier so they were looking to bat first as well. Informs that there are three changes, T Natarajan, Washington Sundar and Marco Jansen come in. Adds that every game carries point, they haven't been at their best in the past few games but they want to turn things around now.
Shreyas Iyer, the skipper of Kolkata, says that they will bat first and tells that the record in the previous games here has seen the team winning after batting first and it suits them as well. Mentions that Umesh and Sam Billings come in. Says that they had ups and downs in the tournament and they made changes this season that they do not want to. States that they have gone back to their core team and they had a good start with the ball and bat in the Powerplay in the last game.
Hyderabad (Playing XI) - Abhishek Sharma, Kane Williamson (C), Rahul Tripathi, Aiden Markram, Nicholas Pooran (WK), Shashank Singh, Washington Sundar (In place of Jagadeesha Suchith), Marco Jansen (In place of Fazalhaq Farooqi), Bhuvneshwar Kumar, T Natarajan (In place of Kartik Tyagi), Umran Malik.
Kolkata (Playing XI) - Venkatesh Iyer, Ajinkya Rahane, Nitish Rana, Shreyas Iyer (C), Sam Billings (WK) (In for Sheldon Jackson), Andre Russell, Rinku Singh, Sunil Narine, Tim Southee, Varun Chakaravarthy, Umesh Yadav (In for Pat Cummins).
TOSS - Up goes the coin and it lands in the favor of Kolkata. They have elected to BAT first!
Pitch report - Deep Dasgupta is down near the pitch. He says that the pitch has a fair bit of grass and it is lively as well. It looks quite firm and in the last few games spinners had some help on this pitch but he feels that there will not be much help today. Mentions that while the bowlers have enjoyed on this ground in the last few games, the batters will have the last laugh here.
Hyderabad, on the other hand, have been doing things in clusters this season. They went on a five-match winning streak earlier this season but since then fallen off the radar with four losses on the trot. The injuries to T Natarajan and Washington Sundar have been a big problem for them and that has made their bowling vulnerable which was their stronger suit earlier. They are, however, expected to be back for this game. They registered a comfortable win against Kolkata earlier this season and would be looking to find a similar form to get back to winning ways. Can they knock Kolkata out of the competition? We shall find out. Toss and team sheets in a while.
Kolkata have been pretty inconsistent this season both in terms of results and their team combination. The constant chopping and changing have not helped their cause but they will be happy with their performance in the last game with Venkatesh Iyer and Varun Chakaravarthy, their retained players showing some form. Pat Cummins has been ruled out for the remainder of the season and will be interesting to see how Kolkata go about their business in this must-win game.
Hello and a warm welcome to our coverage as Pune get ready to host its final game of this season of the Indian T20 League. It is a crucial encounter as Kolkata will be up against Hyderabad in game number 61 of the season. A loss for Kolkata will end their playoff hopes while a loss for Hyderabad will also put them on the verge of elimination.
