A Contrasting IPL Auction

The Kolkata Knight Riders and the Sunrisers Hyderabad had a contrasting IPL auction in December 2019. While the Knight Riders spent a lot of Indian rupees to plug their gaps, the Sunrisers spent a lot less money and decided to back youngsters to do a job for them. In fact, they bought seven players for nearly half the price that the Knight Riders spent on Pat Cummins.

A Closer Look at the Kolkata Knight Riders

The Kolkata Knight Riders have won this tournament twice and with the players that they acquired in the auction, there is no reason why they cannot challenge for the title this time around. They seem to be covered in every single department.

Below are the KKR players that we are backing to have a very good tournament:

  • Eoin Morgan
  • Tom Banton
  • Pat Cummins
  • Sunil Narine
  • Lockie Ferguson

If the KKR do not make the knockout stages of the competition, they will be pretty disappointed after having spent all that money. However, we are backing them to go far in this tournament.


A Closer Look at the Sunrisers Hyderabad

The Sunrisers Hyderabad have won this competition once, and we do not think they will add to this tally this time around. They have taken a gamble by acquiring players that have not been tested at this level, something that we believe will ultimately backfire.

They do possess very good players such as:

  • David Warner
  • Jonny Bairstow
  • Kane Williamson
  • Bhuvneshwar Kumar
  • Rashid Khan

However, last season they relied heavily on their openers (Warner and Bairstow) to get them off to a flier and we think they will rely heavily on them once again. If they get out cheaply, we see them struggling to post an intimidating total.

This is Our Prediction

When you compare the two squads, the Kolkata Knight Riders seem to have quality in all departments. If one of their star players fail, another one will likely put in a match winning performance. While the Sunrisers Hyderabad have a number of quality players as well, they just do not have as balanced a squad as the Knight Riders.


This is why we think the Knight Riders will come out on top in this match.
