Probable Best Batter of the Match
Venkatesh Iyer has owned up to the reputation that he created for himself in the last season of TATA IPL and scored a phenomenal 83 in the Kolkata Knight Riders’ crucial encounter against Gujarat Titans. He may be the best batter of the match since he bats in the top order and is in good form.
Probable Best Bowler of the Match
Mayank Markande got his debut match for Sunrisers Hyderabad in their previous match against the Punjab Kings and he picked up 4 wickets while giving away just 15 runs in his 4 overs. This is why he may be the best bowler of the match.
Sunrisers Hyderabad will take on the Kolkata Knight Riders in the 19th Match of TATA Indian Premier League 2023 at Eden Gardens, Kolkata on 14th April 2023. For the viewers, the match will be telecast live at 7:30 pm on Star Sports network on television and Jio Cinema on your mobile handset.
