KKR have the advantage of playing their playoffs in Sharjah: Virender Sehwag
Former Indian batsman Virender Sehwag opined that KKR would have an advantage in the playoffs as they might potentially play their matches in Sharjah, where they have been successful in the league stage.
Speaking to Cricbuzz, Sehwag gave his views about KKR’s chances if they reach the playoffs and said:
“I think it’s a good sign for the KKR. They have a match at a venue in which they have delivered an outstanding performance and will get another if they win it. Hence, it’s pretty suitable for them as they are aware of the conditions and know how to approach it.”
“Bangalore might play better because they have 2-3 players in Ab de Villiers, Glenn Maxwell, and Virat Kohli, who can win games single-handedly. But Kolkata has the advantage of playing their playoffs in Sharjah.”
Technically, the Mumbai Indians still have an outside chance of overtaking KKR. However, KKR is most likely to advance to the next stage owing to their superior net run rate. MI could only usurp KKR if they win by a mammoth margin against SRH in their last league match tonight.
Q. Will MI pull off a miracle?
