KKR vs SRH Live Streaming
My personal favorite to watch IPL 2023 live streaming is the JioCinema application as it is by far the best available app in India to enjoy IPL stream without buffering and other issues. JioCinema also covers all the pre and post-match discussions which provides good insights on what to expect before the game.
It will be a very warm evening in Kolkata tonight with temperatures staying between 37 to 31 degrees Celsius while the humidity will be about 27 to 45 percent as the match progresses. No rain is expected during the game so we will witness a full 40 overs game tonight.
Eden Gardens traditionally is a great batting surface and we have seen in the last game as well when KKR scored 204 runs on the same venue all thanks to Shardul Thakur for his blistering knock. The average first innings score here is around 170 runs while the team batting second has won more matches here which shows it’s a great chasing ground. Out of the total 79 IPL matches hosted here 47 matches have been won by the chasing team. Looking at the stats winning the toss and bowling first is the best way to go here.
KKR vs SRH Match 19 Probable Playing XIs
KKR will possibly follow the same strategy they utilized in their last game. So while bowling they are very much likely to pick Suyash Sharma in the starting XI and may replace him with N Jagadeesan or Venkatesh Iyer while batting. Last time, Suyash Sharma took 3 wickets for only 30 runs against RCB here.
SRH may continue with Harry Brook at the top while it is very much likely that they will opt to bring Abdul Samad in the late middle order if they are being asked to chase as he further strengthens their batting capabilities.

KKR vs SRH Match 19 Prediction
Looking at the stats it is no surprise that it is Kolkata Knight Riders who are coming off as clear favorites for this match with a winning probability of around 54%. Toss may play a crucial factor here as teams chasing here have won more matches but the last game which was played here against Punjab Kings it showed stats only work on paper while in reality if a team bowl good line and lengths they can defend the totals here. Venkatesh Iyer, Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Rinku Singh are the top batters from KKR who are expected to set the big total or play crucial knocks while chasing.
