The Indian Premier League match 47 is scheduled for May 4 between Kolkata Knight Riders and Sunrisers Hyderabad. However, fans of the participating teams might move to the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad to watch live performances of the KKR and SRH teams.

According to the latest news from KKR, the Nitish Rana side will enter the match with a minor change in their squad. Johnson Charles will perform in place of Litton Das in the next match, as the team decision-maker confirmed on Thursday. However, Litton Das got out of the Kolkata team.

In the IPL, Charles has played a total of 30 matches, scoring 734 runs at an average of 25.31 and a strike rate of 124.65. He has also taken two wickets in his IPL career.

Charles’ best IPL performance came in the 2013 season when he played for RCB. In that season, he scored 360 runs in 12 matches at an average of 30 and a strike rate of 157.89. He hit three half-centuries in that season, with his highest score being 82 not out.

Overall, Johnson Charles has had a decent IPL career, and his action in the SRH vs. KKR limited overmatch will be more helpful, as their side really needs the strongest player to dominate the next game.
