IPL Match 35: SRH elect to bowl against KKR

Abu Dhabi, Oct 18 (IANS): SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) skipper David Warner on Sunday won the toss and opted to field against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the 35th IPL 2020 match to be played at the Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium.

SRH have made two changes to their side which last featured against Chennai Super Kings. Basil Thampi comes in place of Khaleel Ahmed and Abdul Samad replaces Shahbaz Nadeem.

"We'll have a bowl. The wickets have been challenging in Dubai compared to this one. Two changes for us - Thampi replaces Khaleel and we have left out a spinner (Nadeem)," said Warner after winning the toss.

KKR also have made two changes to the side which played against Mumbai Indians. They have brought in Kuldeep Yadav and Lockie Ferguson for Prasidh Krishna and Chris Green.

"We will have to improve our basics better, we didn't do that against Mumbai Indians in our last match. Two changes for us - Kuldeep and Lockie in for Green and Prasidh. We don't want to rush Sunil (Narine) back, we'll give him some time," said KKR captain Eoin Morgan.

Playing XIs:

SRH: David Warner(c), Jonny Bairstow(w), Manish Pandey, Kane Williamson, Priyam Garg, Vijay Shankar, Abdul Samad, Rashid Khan, Sandeep Sharma, T Natarajan, Basil Thampi
