After suffering a befuddling defeat, Kings XI Punjab will take on Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali.

In their last match, Kings XI Punjab had succeeded in strangling the CSK batting after they had got off to a great start in the Powerplay. Spinners Ravichandran Ashwin and Murugan Ashwin then bowled tightly in the middle overs and did not allow the CSK batsmen to score freely.

While Murugan Ashwin was extremely economical and gave away just 23 runs from his four overs, it was Ravichandran Ashwin who did the real damage. Ashwin had dismissed Shane Watson and then took the wickets of Faf du Plessis and Suresh Raina on consecutive balls in his last over, breaking the back of the CSK middle order.

However, credit to MS Dhoni and Ambati Rayudu, CSK was successful in posting a 160-run total on the board.

In reply, Punjab lost two early wickets with Chris Gayle and Mayank Agarwal departing within the first two overs. KL Rahul and Sarfaraz Khan then steadied the ship, both scoring fifties. However, they kept batting at quite a slow pace and never really could accelerate. In the last few overs when they tried to up the ante, KXIP batsmen lost their wicket and Punjab fell short by a big margin of 22 runs.

Sunrise Hyderabad had a good bowling performance in the last game against Mumbai Indians but their batting never really got going. As a result, SRH got bundled up for 96. Being the team that they are, SRH would be hungry to bounce back. Openers David Warner and Jonny Bairstow along with spinners Mohammad Nabi and Rashid Khan would be their most crucial players.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams.

 

Kings XI Punjab- KL Rahul, Chris Gayle, Mayank Agarwal, Sarfaraz Khan, David Miller, Sam Curran, Mandeep Singh, Ravichandran Ashwin, Murugan Ashwin, Mohammed Shami, Andrew Tye

Sunrisers Hyderabad- David Warner, Jonny Bairstow, Vijay Shankar, Manish Pandey, Deepak Hooda, Yusuf Pathan, Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Sandeep Sharma, Siddarth Kaul
