Ahmedabad, May 21: Travis Head, Abhishek Sharma and Heinrich Klassen pitted against Sunil Narine, Rinku Singh and Andre Russell.

Its bit difficult to choose which side will punish the rival bowlers more.

But yes both sides have some quality bowlers as well. Pat Cummins, Bhuvneswar Kumar and T Natarajan versus Sunil Narine, Mitchell Starc and Varun Chakaravarthy, can be an interesting battle.

However, considering the match is played in Ahmedabad, batters may have the last laugh in the bang-bang form cricket on Tuesday evening, when Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) lock horns in Qualifier 1 of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 for a place in the final.

 A win will guarantee a direct place in the final while a losing team will play in Qualifier 2 with the winner of the Eliminator for a place in the final.

This is only the fourth meeting between the two teams in the IPL Playoffs with SRH winning two in the previous three encounters. However, in the overall head-to-head, KKR hold an advantage over SRH.

KKR v SRH head-to-head: 26

Kolkata Knight Riders: 16
