Saturday, April 14, 2018 – 12:30 am AEST (8:00 pm IST) – Eden Gardens, Kolkata
The tenth game of the 2018 Indian Premier League season will see the Kolkata Knight Riders take on league leaders the Sunrisers Hyderabad at Eden Gardens, Kolkata on Saturday.
The Sunrisers are comfortably-placed at the top of the pile with two wins to start the year.
Kane Williamson’s side managed to just eke out a close win over the Mumbai Indians, despite a few nervy moments during the game. Meanwhile, Kolkata will be focused and ready to put in a better display with the ball after losing their last game against Chennai Super Kings.
Chris Lynn and Sunil Narine are two of the most explosive players at the top of the innings in this year’s competition. Narine wreaked havoc on the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the first game and showed he is as deadly with the bat as he is with the ball.

Kolkata Captain Dinesh Karthik also chipped with crucial runs in the last game to see the side score more than 200 runs.
Andre Russell produced a blistering performance with the bat and scored an unbeaten 36-ball 88 runs in that game against Chennai. The all-rounder smashed 10 sixes in his innings to see Kolkata post a formidable total.
On the other hand, the Sunrisers Hyderabad will be keen to extend their lead at the top of the points table. Kane Williamson and company were very lucky to win the game against Mumbai as Billy Stanlake smashed a four off the last ball.
Shikhar Dhawan is the in-form batsman for the side and chipped in with a crucial score in the last game against Mumbai. The left-hander currently holds the Orange Cap for most runs in the competition to date. He has scored 123 runs in the two games played so far in the competition.
Dhawan will be crucial for Sunrisers if they want to maintain their winning streak in the competition.
