Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) both started their IPL 2020 campaign with a defeat and will hope to defeat their first win of the season on Saturday. SRH let the game go strong against RCB, while KKR were completely eliminated by defending champions Mumbai Indians in their opening game. With both teams securing their first points, fans can expect an exciting competition, especially with the presence of international superstars in both teams. The match also gets interesting as it is a fight between two former champions, 2016 champion SRH over two-time winner KKR.
While it will be interesting to see who wins this time around, head to head stats between the two sides give the Kolkata-based franchise a slight edge.
The two teams faced each other 17 times in the cash-rich league, with KKR topping 10, while SRH had to settle for just seven wins.

Kolkata Knight Riders vs Sunrisers Hyderabad
KKR won: 10
SRH Won: 7
The match will give fans the opportunity to have some exciting encounters between the star players from each side, noting that David Warner is facing country Pat Cummins, while Andre Russell is taking on leg-spinner Rashid Khan.
After failing with the bat in the first game, SRH run-machine Warner will hope to lead from the front and make it big in the game. However, it will not be easy as he will face stiff challenge from Cummins, who will try to prove his worth as the most expensive foreign player in IPL history.
