New Delhi | Jagran Sports Desk: Sunrisers Hyderabad will be looking to exact revenge on Eoin Morgan-led Kolkata Knight Riders when the two sides lock horns in the return clash at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium on Sunday afternoon (IST). Both the sides have lost their last two matches and will be looking to bounce back in the tournament with a win in the crucial match. 

Kolkata will be hoping for a better performance from its bowlers. The team has taken fewest wickets in all eight matches of the IPL. Here’s all you need to know about game 35 of the Indian Premier League 2020.

Head to Head Stats:

The two teams have faced each other 18 times in the IPL history and Kolkata holds an advantage with 11 wins, as against Hyderabad’s 7 win. KKR had also won the previous encounter between the two earlier in the tournament by seven wickets.

Pitch Report:

The pitch at Abu Dhabi has provided assistance to both spinners and pacers so far, plus the long boundaries make it hard for batsmen to clear the rope. Both the teams have performed poorly in the bowling department and the match would be a great opportunity for the bowlers to regain their form.

The temperature in Abu Dhabi will be 35 degrees at the commencement of the match. The humidity will be 61 per cent and there is no prediction of rain what so ever.
