Williamson is the man

The much-awaited second qualifier is finally here. The match is set to be played between Hyderabad and Kolkata at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata. The winner of this fierce encounter will be confirming their berth to the final match that will be played at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai on May 27th.

Captain of SRH, Kane Williamson will be the one to watch out for as he has been in stunning form all season and will play the anchor’s role for the orange army. His performance is very crucial for Hyderabad and that was proved many a time in the past. The Kiwi captain has a huge responsibility on his shoulders and will be the main target for the KKR bowlers.

On the other hand, KKR is looking like a settled unit that bat deep and has various bowling options at its disposal. Andra Russel has been a key performer for KKR as his all-rounder skills have single-handedly turned odds in favor of KKR in the previous match. This match promises to be a solid clash between a strong batting unit and probably the best bowling attack in the tournament.

The latest reports confirm that Kolkata has won the toss and will be fielding first least. Given the depth in KKR’s batting, SRH would be looking to post over 180 runs on the scoreboard if they are to win this game.
