SRH vs KXIP: Hyderabad to Pose a Stiff Challenge for Punjab

Sunrisers Hyderabad, who are yet to taste defeat, and Kings XI Punjab, who have won two out of three games, will be facing each other on April 19.

Kings XI Punjab, who denied CSK in the previous game despite Dhoni’s valiant effort, will face the Sunrisers Hyderabad, where the game will be between Punjab’s batting against Hyderabad’s bowling.

The bowlers of SRH have taken 25 wickets in three matches. Apart from that the bowling attack is very frugal, with Billy Stanlake’s economy of 7.66 being the highest in the league. Moreover they have a number of various options which make them a difficult opposition.

KXIP’s batting has been very good with KL Rahul, Karun Nair, Mayank Agarwal and Chris Gayle leading from the front. Although big hitters like Aaron Finch and Yuvraj Singh have failed so far, the other batsmen can capitalise once they get a good start.

KXIP’s bowling has been more or less impressive as they kept Delhi in check and also fought well against RCB in a defeat. In the CSK game, which got very close, the bowlers managed to keep their calm. R Ashwin has handled his bowling resources well and has been in top gear as far as his captaincy is concerned.

SRH is concerned with their batting as the likes of Wriddhiman Saha and Manish Pandey have not yet proved themselves. The victory against Rajasthan was straightforward but they had to work hard to win against Mumbai. Even in the win against Kolkata, their batting had some nervy moments.

Venue: Punjab Cricket Association Stadium, Mohali

KXIP Probable XI: KL Rahul (wk), Chris Gayle, Mayank Agarwal, Aaron Finch, Yuvraj Singh/Manoj Tiwary, Karun Nair, Ravichandran Ashwin (c), Andrew Tye, Barinder Sran, Mohit Sharma, Mujeeb Ur Rahman.

SRH Probable XI: Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Shikhar Dhawan, Kane Williamson (c), Manish Pandey, Shakib Al Hasan, Deepak Hooda, Yusuf Pathan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Rashid Khan, Siddarth Kaul, Billy Stanlake.
