Kings XI Punjab vs Sunrisers Hyderabad:
Kings XI will aim for their second win on the trot after getting a much needed win over Gujarat Lions in their last game. Hashim Amla seems to be in great form as South African have been all class in the last few games in this edition. Shaun Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis are will be hold the key for Kings XI when they face off againt title holders Sunrisers Hyderabad. Maxwell will be needed to produce runs as Australian is capable of playing unbelievable knocks in this format. If he gets going, Kings XI could upset Sunrisers in their home fixture at Mohali. Mohit Sharma did well in the last game with the ball while spin duo of KC Cariappa and Axar Patel were excellent for Kings XI Punjab with the ball.
Sunrisers Hyderabad were disappointed after their washout game against Royal Challengers Bangalore. They will be keen to produce a good performance after losing their last fixture against Rising Pune. Yuvraj Singh needs to produce runs for the side while Kane Williamson, Shikhar Dhawan and David Warner are all in-form players with the bat. Warner needs to raise his game as the tournament is reaching its second phase as Australian must produce his best to help Sunrisers secure their place in the playoffs of the competition. Bipul Sharma, Siddharth Kaul and Mohammad Siraj will need to produce better returns with the ball while Rashid Khan and Bhuvneshwar Kumar have been splendid to say the least.
Sunrisers will be feel confident of pulling of a win against a side that has fairly been inconsistent this season with Kings XI managing three wins out of seven games played. Hashim Amla will once again be crucial as the batsman has scored 299 runs from seven games with a hundred to his name
