Sunrisers Hyderabad are getting ready to face Kolkata Knight Riders in their 5th match of IPL 2022 at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai on Friday (April 15). SRH, who finished in last place in IPL 2021, have won their last two matches on the trot and will be looking for their third successive win of this season.
However, Kane Williamson’s side have a major injury concern after all-rounder Washington Sundar injured his hand during the last game. SRH head coach Tom Moody had informed the media after their last match against Gujarat Titans that Sundar will be sidelined for a couple of matches at least.
“Washington has torn the webbing in his right hand, between his thumb and first finger. We must monitor that over the next two-three days. Hopefully, it isn’t a significant blow. I’d imagine it’d take probably a week or so to settle down,” SRH coach Moody said after the win.
SRH and Williamson will be looking at either Abdul Samad or Jagdeesha Suchith to fill the role vacated by Sundar. Both Samad and Sucith have the ability to bowl and can hit big when required.
Kolkata Knight Riders, on the other hand, are comfortably placed at 2nd place on the points table. They will look to carry on their fine form and look to join the Titans on 8 points in IPL 2022 with a win over SRH.
