What is an Indian Premier League? It is a tournament where seven different teams play to face Chennai Super Kings in the final. The phase still has relevance in spite of the Men in Yellow being away for two years and made a come back to the IPL and still reached the final with ease.

To face MS Dhoni and co. for the elusive trophy, Sunrises Hyderabad take on Kolkata Knight Riders at the Eden Gardens in the qualifier 2 later today. Sunrisers, who qualified to play in the Qualifier 1 on the virtue of topping the table after the league phrase, lost to Chennai Super Kings in the previous match, thanks to Faf du Plessis’ match-winning knock. They have earned the opportunity to take their place in the final and they will be facing Kolkata, who beat Rajasthan Royals in the eliminator, in their own backyard.

Both the teams are going into this game in a contrasting manner as the Knights won their last four games while the Sunrisers lost their last four. After a great start to the tournament, the SRH bowlers have been found out and the form of their batsmen sans Kane Williamson and Shikhar Dhawan has been a concern for them.
