Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) are set to host new-look Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the third match of the Indian Premier League 2024 at iconic Eden Gardens on Saturday.

Pat Cummins, the ICC World Cup 2023 winning captain, has taken the leadership role from Aiden Markram for Hyderabad. SRH finished the last season at the bottom of the points table with just two wins in 14 games but the arrival of Pat Cummins, Travis Head and Wanindu Hasaranga significantly put the team in a dominant position this season.

On the other hand, Shreyas Iyer returns to retake captaincy duties for Kolkata Knight Riders. Phil Salt’s arrival with a rich form in T20Is and the sensational IPL return of Mitchell Starc further boosts KKR in the IPL 2024.
