The Kolkata Knight Riders played their first match against the Indians in Mumbai, and they showed signs of rust because they couldn't even get close to the Mumbai Indians' total of 195 and only managed to take 146 rounds, losing the match 49 times.
KKR's Mavi impresses:
Shivam Mavi’s speed and control was a discovery for the Kolkata Knight Riders against MI as he only conceded 32 exaggerated 4 runs and collected two wickets, which is great considering the high-scoring match.
Sunil Narain was a bank for KKR as always. Andre Russell is also impressed with his collection. Sandeep Warrior finished 3-0-34-0 but showed some good signs of improvement and is a work in progress for Kolkata. Unfortunately for them, Culdeb Yadav and Pat Cummins did a lot.
Kolkata batting rusty against MI
Pursuing a giant goal, his initial group Shubman Gill and Sunil Narine were unsuccessful. Narine will have two more chances to unlock, after which there can be a change at the top of the order if the off-road vehicle is down.
It was a surprise move by KKR to bring Dinesh Karthik to # 3. He's impressed with his 23-ball spell in the penalty area, but Karthik is perhaps better suited to the role of a spiker. Ewen Morgan and Andre Russell looked a long way from Kolkata and with their eliminations, Kolkata's hopes of winning their first game of the season also evaporated.
However, Kolkata will be back stronger in this game with a match under his belt now and after he has tested his combinations between them.

Injury concerns for Hyderabad
While the Kolkata Knight Riders were rusty in their first meeting, Sunrisers Hyderabad's loss in their first game of the season was a mixture of poor execution and shame.
For starters, Mitchell Marsh, SRH's multi-skilled player chosen over Mohamed Nabi, was only able to throw four balls before he had to leave. Marsh was excluded from the season with Jason Holder chosen as his replacement.
SRH will likely go with Muhammad Nabi for this game. If Ken Williamson has recovered from his quadriceps muscle injury, it can be added to boost the average sexual and reproductive health ranking.
David Warner wasn't lucky enough to be knocked out in the last game. Both Johnny Bayerstow and Manish Bandy were killed by reckless shots after the set.
SRH depend on bowling to bail them out:
SRH, however, was impressed, as Bhuvneshwar Kumar stood out. Although he did not collect any share, Bofneshwar only admitted 25 times out of the four sums. Off-road young man Abhishek Sharma went so far as to throw a couple of overs as he picked up a wicket and conceded 16 rounds.
With Afghan bowling duo Muhammad Nabi and Rashid Khan preparing to return together, Hyderabad is hoping for its first win at the table.
Matching and probability analysis:
The SRH model may indicate that your cricket bets in this match must be with SRH to win.
Here's the probable playing XI of both teams:
Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) - David Warner (c), Jonny Bairstow (wk), Manish Pandey, Priyam Garg, Vijay Shankar, Abhishek Sharma, Mitchell Marsh, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Sandeep Sharma, T Natarajan
Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) - Sunil Narine, Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana, Eoin Morgan, Andre Russell, Dinesh Karthik(c & wk), Nikhil Naik, Pat Cummins, Kuldeep Yadav, Sandeep Warrier, Shivam Mavi
