Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), now in their fourth season, have struggled to attain the visibility that some of the more ‘glamorous’ teams have achieved. On Saturday at Uppal, they play host for the first time this year to a team, Kolkata Knight Riders, who have thrived on publicity and have two IPL crowns.

Don’t judge us on one game, says Gambhir
