  • 22:48 (IST)

    IPL 2020 Live Score, KKR 113/3, 15 overs: 11 runs from the Bhuvi over this time as Morgan is able to pick up the one going across him and loft it over deep cover for a SIX at the end of the over. KKR have brought him for exactly these kind of shots. Gill at the other end is happy to knock it around and pick up the ones and twos. Mature batting from the youngster as expected. 

  • 22:42 (IST)

    IPL 2020 Live Score, KKR 102/3, 14 overs: Nabi has bowled out and KKR have done well to not let him have a wicket. Morgan and Gill looking to do this as calmly as possible. Big chance for Gill to take his team home here. 

  • 22:39 (IST)

    IPL 2020 Live Score, KKR 97/3, 13 overs: Eight runs of the over. KKR are doing well to find the boundary at least once in the over in the last few overs. 46 runs needed off 7 overs with Andre Russell still to come. 

  • 22:37 (IST)

    IPL 2020 Live Score, KKR 96/3: FIFTY! Fantastic innings from the talented Shubman Gill. He's pounced onto a lose one from Natarajan and cut it away for a boundary to bring up his half-century. 

  • 22:34 (IST)

    IPL 2020 Live Score, KKR 89/3, 12 overs: 9 runs from Nabi's over without Morgan and Gill having to look for the big hit. KKR no doubt well on course here. Both Nabi and Rashid have an over to go though. 

  • 22:30 (IST)

    IPL 2020 Live Score, KKR 80/3, 11 overs: 8 runs of Rashid's third over with Shubman Gill breaking the shackles a bit by finding the fence. Whacks it across the line and finds the fence on the leg side. 

  • 22:27 (IST)

    IPL 2020 Live Score, KKR 72/3, 10 overs: Five singles of the Nabi over as Morgan and Gill aren't looking to take any risks. KKR's batting did not fire in their first game and understandably they want to be careful. 

  • 22:21 (IST)

    IPL 2020 Live Score, KKR 67/3, 9 overs: Seven runs of the second Rashid Khan over and far more comfortably played by the KKR batsmen. Morgan pulls out a reverse sweep over short third man to find the fence. Is he looking to repeat his showing from the World Cup last year against Afghanistan? KKR would not mind that at all. Time for a drinks break! 

  • 22:18 (IST)

    IPL 2020 Live Score, KKR 60/3, 8 overs: KKR have been pegged back a bit here by SRH's spinners. After Rashid, Mohammad Nabi joins the attack and rolls over a tight 5 run over. Morgan meanwhile is looking to sweep as much as possible against the two spinners.

  • 22:14 (IST)

    IPL 2020 Live Score, KKR 55/3, 7 overs: Fantastic over from Rashid who troubles Eoin Morgan quite a bit. The England captain was looking to sweep Rashid and there were a couple of loud lbw appeals. 

  • 22:12 (IST)

    IPL 2020 Live Score, KKR 53/3: WICKET! Rashid Khan's come on to bowl and struck immediately. Karthik has not picked the wrong one and it's hit is back leg - LBW and even the late DRS call can't save him. KKR need another 90. 

  • 22:08 (IST)

    IPL 2020 Live Score, KKR 52/2, 6 Overs: End of the power play and Shubman Gill is looking set for a big knock. He has for company captain Dinesh Karthik as KKR look to chase down 143 against SRH. 

  • 22:07 (IST)

    IPL 2020 Live Score, KKR 51/2, 5.5 overs: Four and Four! Gill moves his front leg out of the way and makes room to slap Khaleel through the covers, and then repeats it through backward point. This young man is supremely talented and a delight to watch. 

  • 22:01 (IST)

    IPL 2020 Live Score, KKR 43/2: WICKET! Just as Nitish Rana looked like he was settling in for a big knock Natarajan gets him to edge it to Wriddhiman Saha. Gone for 26 off 13. Dinesh Karthik walks in for KKR now. 

  • 21:56 (IST)

    IPL 2020 Live Score, KKR 38/1, 4 overs: Khaleel bounces back well after that though could have gone for more runs if Rana had connected off the fifth ball which was going down leg. Just the couple of runs after the hat-trick of boundaries. Fantastic job by Rana and Gill since the loss of Narine's wicket. 

  • 21:55 (IST)

    IPL 2020 Live Score, KKR 36/1, 3.3 overs: Poor bowling from Khaleel as Nitish Rana picks up three consecutive boundaries. The first being a streaky one off an edge while he tried to hook the pacer and then flicked him away with superb timing for the second boundary. Khaleel then offered him width and Rana cut him away for another four, that almost carried over the fence as well. Excellent batting from the left hander. 

  • 21:51 (IST)

    IPL 2020 Live Score, KKR 24/1, 3 overs: Unusually wayward and expensive over from Bhuvi as he allows new man Nitish Rana to punch him through the covers for a couple of crisp boundaries. Bhuvi oversteps after that and the free-hit produces a wicket but of course that does not count. Good battle on at the moment. 

  • 21:43 (IST)

    IPL 2020 Live Score, KKR 12/1, 1.5 overs: Gill responds to Khaleel in style - dances down the track and clubs him over long on for the first SIX of the innings. Brilliantly played.

  • 21:42 (IST)

    IPL 2020 Live Score, KKR 6/1, 1.2 overs: WICKET! Huge blow for KKR as Khaleel Ahmed removes the dangerous Sunil Narine. The batsman was looking to play him through midwicket and a top edge lands in the hands of an elated captain David Warner. 

  • 21:38 (IST)

    IPL 2020 Live Score, KKR 6-0, 1 Overs: Shubman Gill's afforded a freebie on the legs and he puts it away through the legside masterfully. Ian Bishop loved the shot. KKR make a steady start. 

  • 21:34 (IST)

    IPL 2020 Live Score, KKR 0-0, 0 Overs: Shubman Gill and Sunil Narine to open the batting with Bhuvneshwar Kumar all set to take the first over. 

  • 21:21 (IST)

    IPL 2020 live score SRH 142-4: SRH manage to get 9 runs off the over but a total of 142 feels sub-par on this track. KKR will be the more confident of the two sides going into the break. 

  • 21:14 (IST)

    IPL 2020 live score: Mavi comes on to bowl his second over and it is a decent one despite Nabi getting a boundary as it goes for just the 6 runs overall. KKR will be pleased with that.

  • 21:06 (IST)

    IPL 2020 live score: OUT! Pandey dismissed in bizarre circumstances. Russell bowls a high full toss but it is adjudged legal because Pandey had jumped. He sends the ball floating and Russell takes a simple catch.

IPL 2020 LIVE Score, KKR vs SRH Today's Match at Abu Dhabi, Highlights: As it Happened

IPL 2020 Live Score, Kolkata Knight Riders vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Live Updates - IPL 2020 Live Score, KKR 102/3, 14 overs: Nabi has bowled out and KKR have done well to not let him have a wicket. Morgan and Gill looking to do this as calmly as possible. Big chance for Gill to take his team home here.

Preview: Both Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) would be looking for a better result when they clash with one another in Match 8 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 in Abu Dhabi on the 26th of September, Saturday. KKR were outplayed by MI at the same venue while RCB fought back to register a remarkable win against SRH in Dubai. Both teams would not want to lose two in a row.

Kolkata Knight Riders

KKR would hope that at least one of Shubman Gill or Sunil Narine fire at the top – they were both dismissed for single-digits against MI. That would ease the pressure on the middle-order. There is a possibility that Eoin Morgan would be pushed to Number 4 and Andre Russell at 5. That would mean Nitish Rana is used as a floater.

Pat Cummins went for 49 in his 3 overs against MI – KKR would hope that it was a one-off and that the world-class bowler would find his mojo soon in the tournament. Kuldeep Yadav’s form in the IPL remains a big worry. He went for 39 in his 4 overs in Abu Dhabi without picking a wicket. He had a nightmare season last year with just 4 wickets from 9 matches also going above 8.5 an over.

Sunrisers Hyderabad

SRH are top heavy and very dependent on their Numbers 1-3 to fire at the start – at least two of Jonny Bairstow, David Warner and Manish Pandey have to perform in almost every match as the middle order lacks depth or experience. There is no word yet on when Kane Williamson will be match-fit again – SRH would be desperate to have him back to anchor their batting line-up.

With Mitchell Marsh also out of the tournament due to an injury and Jason Holder under quarantine for the next few days, SRH will desperately miss the services of a world-class all-rounder in the lower-order.

Mohammad Nabi is most likely to fill the gap against KKR unless the management wants to give the hard-hitting Fabian Allen, who has a strike rate of 164.89 in all T20 cricket, a chance to show his mettle.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar would lead the pace attack while Rashid Khan would be crucial to keep the opposition batsmen in check in the middle overs.

Head to Head:

10 (KKR) - 7(SRH) (17 matches)

Predicted XI

Sunrisers Hyderabad – David Warner (Captain), Jonny Bairstow (wk), Manish Pandey, Priyam Garg, Vijay Shankar, Abhishek Sharma, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammad Nabi, Sandeep Sharma, T Natarajan

Kolkata Knight Riders – Shubman Gill, Sunil Narine, Dinesh Karthik (Captain & wk), Eoin Morgan, Andre Russell, Nitish Rana, Nikhil Naik, Pat Cummins, Shivam Mavi, Kuldeep Yadav, Sandeep Warrier
