With just 11 games left in the group stage of the 2022 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), one team has already qualified, and a couple of them have put a foot in the door towards the qualification, however, for some, the situation has become a little desperate. Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), who struggled to find their combinations whether due to injury or illness or loss of form of their key players, constantly chopped and changed only to return to their original line-up.Given, how they played against the Mumbai Indians, it seems, this combination gives them the best playing XI and even though Pat Cummins has been ruled out of the tournament, KKR have a readymade replacement in Umesh Yadav, who missed a couple of games after tightness in his calf. With Venkatesh Iyer showing signs of the form from last year and Nitish Rana, Shreyas Iyer, Rinku Singh as well as Andre Russell in the middle order, the KKR batting line-up suddenly looks a bit more powerful and the solidity of Ajinkya Rahane is there to save the day, if they do have another collapse.Cummins will be missed especially after his 3/17, however, Tim Southee, Varun Chakravarthy and Sunil Narine have been the pillars for KKR with the ball and will be hoping to produce another good performance against a fragile Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) batting line-up. The loss of form of retained players hasn't helped but if the last game gave any signs, they were encouraging for KKR to finish the campaign on a high, which hangs by a thread, that too very slim.KKR face SRH, who also have suddenly lost the winning momentum and form after Gujarat Titans punctured their confidence by pulling off a heist. Sunrisers' major concern is the form of the skipper Kane Williamson. With just three games remaining and destiny in their own hands, Williamson is surely not going to be dropped, however, he needs to start supporting the likes of Abhishek Sharma, Rahul Tripathi and Aiden Markram, who have been the crisis-men for the Orange Army. With Washington Sundar and T Natarajan set to return, SRH's bowling stocks will be bolstered and will hope that they restrict the long KKR line-up as their bowlers have conceded over 190 runs in the last four games in all of them and they have batted second in every single one of them.SRH will need some support from their batters as Umran Malik after a sensational start has just tapered off and has leaked over 100 runs in the last three games without a single wicket. The only bright spot for Sunrisers has been Bhuvneshwar Kumar, the smart operator he is as he continues to bowl those miserly spells and keep run-scoring in check at least from his end.
