However, in the first eliminator match 3rd place Sunrisers will challenge Riders on this Wednesday at Bengluru. Kolkata Knight Riders is going to face the defending champions and moreover, the current form of David Warner is thundering, hence, Gautam Gambhir has to put all his efforts in the match and also have to score good runs if he wishes to qualify.

A strategy to beat the champions in IPL
There is no doubt that Sunrisers Hyderabad is a strong team and also the winner of the last season of the IPL. But, on the other hand, Kolkata Knight Riders has also won the IPL Cup twice; hence their battle is going to be very classy and worth-watching. If Hyderabad will bat first, then they will easily make 180+ and chasing that target might be a headache for Kolkata. On the other hand, if Kolkata will bat first, Hyderabad bowlers who are in great form will take early wickets and hence, the match might go in the pocket of Sunrisers Hyderabad.
