Two of the strongest teams in IPL are going to fight it out in today’s IPL match. Sunrisers Hyderabad currently in the third place (according to Run Rate) with 3 wins and 2 losses and Kings XI Punjab currently in sixth place (according to Run Rate) with the same 3 wins and 2 losses. The two teams are at their best shape currently and are most likely to make their way into playoffs. Despite the strengths of the teams both KXIP and SRH lost their previous matches against CSK and MI respectively.
SRH’s last match was against Mumbai Indians on 6th April 2019. Mumbai Indians scored a meager total of 136 with Kieron Pollard being the only batsman that managed to score a total of 46. Surprisingly, SRH team that had hit great totals in their previous matches and chased the low totals with ease, stumbled and failed to chase this total against MI. With no player in the team scoring above 25 runs, SRH was bowled out for 96 runs.
SRH has the best batsmen in IPL 12, David Warner and Johnny Bairstow, who are currently at the top of most runs scored list. The team had set a record for the highest partnership in their match with both players scoring a century each. The team also has bowlers like Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi who displayed great skill in the previous matches. If the bowlers and the batsmen perform right SRH might win this match against KXIP.
On the other hand, Kings XI Punjab’s previous match was against Chennai Super Kings in which CSK made a total of 160 runs which KXIP failed to chase despite two players of KXIP, Lokesh Rahul and Sarfaraz Khan scoring 55 and 67 runs each. KXIP possesses some powerful players like Chris Gayle, David Miller alongside the aforementioned who can lead the team to a grand total and the bowlers like Sam Curran, Andrew Tye to defend it. The team is a strong contender and will not let SRH take away their victory that easily. Since both the teams stand with equal points, a match between these two teams is predicted to be thrilling.
