Tail-ender Pat Cummins showed fight with the bat and scored a quick-fire 33 off 12 balls with the help of one four and four sixes.

In the bowling department, the side will be depending on the likes of Pat Cummins, Kuldeep Yadav and Sunil Narine to pick up wickets in this contest.

Off-spinner Sunil Narine was best bowler on display for Kolkata and finished with figures of 1 for 22 in his four overs. Medium-pacer Shivam Mavi claimed two wickets and conceded 32 runs in his four overs.

Sunrisers Hyderabad

David Warner and co. will be looking to learn from their mistakes and make a strong comeback in this fixture.

With Mitchell Marsh ruled out of the competition, Khaleel Ahmed might be slotted into the playing XI in order to bolster the bowling resources. Sandeep Sharma might also be replaced by Siddharth Kaul for this game.

In the batting department, the onus will be on the likes of David Warner, Jonny Bairstow and Manish Pandey to deliver the bulk of the runs.

In the opening game against Royal Challengers Bangalore, Jonny Bairstow was the standout performer with the bat. He put on a 71-run partnership with Manish Pandey to stabilize the innings for Hyderabad.

Jonny Bairstow played exceedingly well and finished the innings with the top-score of 61 runs off 43 balls with the help of six fours and two sixes. He was well supported by Manish Pandey, who chipped in with 34 runs off 33 balls with the help of three fours and one six.

The big cause of concern will be inexperienced middle-order, which crumbed under pressure against spin of Yuzvendra Chahal and Shivam Dube.

In the bowling department, the onus will be on the likes of Rashid Khan, Sandeep Sharma and Bhuvneshwar Kumar to make early inroads with the new-ball.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Actual Playing XI:

Khaleel Ahmed, T Natarajan, Jonny Bairstow, Manish Pandey, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Rashid Khan, Mohammad Nabi, WP Saha, David Warner, Priyam Garg, Abhishek Sharma
