IPL 2018 LIVE Score KKR vs SRH LIVE Cricket Score: This is the biggest test in the Indian Premier League so far, the Kolkata Knight Riders will take on the Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata. Sunrisers Hyderabad has won the toss and has decided to bowl first in the interesting encounter between the city from the south against the mighty Kolkata Knight Riders. Dinesh Karthik would take motivation from KKR’s batting effort in the last match against Chennai Super Kings. However, the death bowling remains a huge concern for the KKR captain. Vinay Kumar has had two forgettable matches in the IPL so far while young Kamlesh Nagarkoti was ruled out from the entire tournament on Saturday morning. This has left the franchise with just one Indian fast bowling option – Shivam Mavi. Sunrisers Hyderabad, on the other hand, have got off to a great start winning their most two matches.
