Super Sunday is here and there are two exciting matches coming up. First one is between Kolkata and Hyderabad who are both stumbling in the tournament so far. Both teams are coming into this game on the back of a loss in their previous games and they both are lying in the middle of the table. Kolkata, though would take confidence from the last encounter between these sides as they defeated Hyderabad comfortably. The good news for Kolkata is that Sunil Narine has got his action cleared and in all likelihood, he is going to play. The performance of Hyderabad has not been great and they will look to make a comeback starting from this game. Who will come out on top? Warner’s Hyderabad or Morgan’s Kolkata? Stay tuned.
