Image result for srh vs kxip

Its match number 48 of the VIVO IPL 2019. Sunrisers Hyderabad takes on the Kings XI Punjab at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in a tense encounter. Both teams are sitting on 10 points with five wins from 11 matches. However, Hyderabad is better positioned owing to a better run rate than that of Punjab. A win is desperately needed by both the teams in order to reach the playoffs. So, join us for the latest team news, starting XIs, key players, and of course our prediction.

Sunrisers Hyderabad

This is a must win match for Hyderabad in order to extend the gap from the latter teams. A win will also take them closer to the playoffs. Given that, today is David Warner’s last match, SRH will surely be looking to end on a high note. Warner is now paired by Captain Williamson to open the innings, with Bairstow gone. The duo will have to pass a much dangerous bowling of KXIP. Manish Pandey has shown flickers of brilliance this season. The right hander was brilliant in the last match with a quick fire of 61 runs. The middle order though will worry SRH. The likes of Vijay Shankar, Deepak Hooda and Wridhhiman Saha will need to score if they want a win in this match.

SRH have a potent bowling attack in the form of Bhuvaneshwar Kumar and Rashid Khan. The Afghan spinner has been the nightmare for bowlers this season. Pacer Khaleel Ahmed and former captain Shakib Al Hasan will also have to perform well to stop the likes of Rahul and Gayle. Last match wasn’t a good one for the bowlers as they lost to Rajasthan. The same mistakes cannot be repeated in today’s match.

David Warner, Kane Williamson and Manish Pandey will be the main run scorers. Bhuvi and Rashid Khan have the job of keeping the opposition quiet.

Predicted XI

David Warner, Kane Williamson, Manish Pandey, Vijay Shankar, Deepak Hooda, Shakib Al Hasan, Wridhhiman Saha, Rashid Khan, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Siddharth Kaul, Khaleel Ahmed.

Kings XI Punjab

Punjab has suffered back to back defeats which have left them staggering. Today is also a must win match for the Kings. Much like the destructive opening pair of SRH, Punjab has KL Rahul and Chris Gayle. Both of these batsmen are big hitters of the ball and can easily decimate any team. Mayank Agarwal and David Miller also have the capability to play big shots. Youngster Nicolas Pooran was a joy to see in the last match and he will be looking to repeat the same today. Punjab has depth in their batting and have to utilize it to get a big score on board.

The pace of Mohammad Shami and trickery of Ravichandran Ashwin will play a huge factor for Punjab. Both bowlers have enjoyed a good season and are looking to outdo each other for the purple cap. Ankit Rajpoot and Hardus Viljoen will have to perform better to stop Warner and Pandey.

KL Rahul and Chris Gayle pose a threat to SRH. Shami and Ashwin are the main factors in the bowling unit.

Predicted XI

KL Rahul, Chris Gayle, Mayank Agarwal, David Miller, Nicolas Pooran, Ravichandran Ashwin, Murugan Ashwin, Hardus Viljoen, Mohammad Shami, Ankit Rajpoot, Mandeep Singh.
