Aiden Markram’s Sunrisers Hyderabad will face Nitish Rana’s Kolkata Knight Riders in Match 47 of Indian Premier League 2023 at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad on Thursday, 4 May 2023. Keep reading to find out IPL 2023 47 SRH vs KKR Match Prediction.
Sunrisers Hyderabad have played eight games so far and have managed to win only three of those. Their campaign just hasn’t taken off as a number of below-par performances have hampered the campaign. However, they are coming into this game on the back of a victory in the last one over Delhi Capitals. They would look to build on that momentum.
Kolkata Knight Riders have also had their testing times this season. They have lost six out of nine matches so far. The balance in the team has been missing. The few matches that they won were because of individual brilliance. As a team, they just haven’t clicked. The qualification for the playoffs seems extremely difficult at this point for the two-time champions.

Probable best batter Rahmanullah Gurbaz
After his return to the setup, Gurbaz took the Titans by storm in the previous game as he hammered 81 off mere 39 balls. His blazing innings included seven maximums and five boundaries at an aggressive strike rate of 207.69. The Afghan batter will look to maintain his form and target the SRH bowling unit in the next game.
Probable best bowler Varun Chakaravarthy
Despite leaking 42 runs in his four overs against the Titans, Varun Chakaravarthy has the potential to snatch the game away at any given point. While SRH can counter the spinner, he will look for an improved outing and deliver the goods for KKR.
