The more things change, the more they stay the same. The Kolkata Knight Riders campaign in this IPL can be summed up in this one sentence. The team that will field the maximum number of players in this tournament has yet to find the perfect combination. Although they still have a mathematical chance of qualifying for the playoffs, their fate is no longer in their hands.
Even if they win their two remaining matches, they will need plenty more results to make it home to Eden Gardens for the final stage of the IPL.
On the contrary, Sunrisers Hyderabad have a lot at stake when the two teams face off at the MCA Stadium in Pune on Saturday. The Kane Williamson-led side have often overshot their weight in this edition to stay in the fray for a top-four finish.

Although tied with KKR at 10 points apiece, the Hyderabad side enjoy a better net run rate, having played one less game and therefore have a better chance of qualifying if they win their remaining three games. .
The Orange Army, however, has only themselves to blame for being in such a critical juncture after suffering four straight losses. Skipper Williamson was right when he said ‘we’ll have to get a little more creative and find ways to change the momentum’ after losing their last game to Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Cummins off IPL
KKR will miss Pat Cummins, who took three wickets against MI in the last match. The Oz Test skipper has gone home after being ruled out with a hip injury. In his absence, KKR will be hoping the in-form Umesh Yadav will lead the attack.
