Hello and welcome to Sportstar’s LIVE coverage of IPL 2020, Match 35 between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kolkata Knight Riders at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
A struggling Kolkata Knight Riders will hope to get its campaign back on track when it takes on Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 encounter in Abu Dhabi on Sunday.
Kolkata’s last two matches resulted in two crushing defeats. Eoin Morgan’s men will be left facing a steep climb into the playoffs if it fails to iron out the flaws.
The form of Caribbean all-rounder Andre Russell has been a major concern for them. He has struggled to score runs and his bowling, though economical in patches, has been lightweight.
