The IPL tournament which can also be called a Vacation plan for everyone will see the Kings XI Punjab will take on the Sunrisers Hyderabad at the PCA Stadium.
Today’s match prediction for KXIP vs SRH is as followed:-
The Pitch report for the Punjab cricket association stadium where earlier the wicket used to offer good carry and bounce to the pacers, nowadays it has slowed down and it has become more batsmen favourable pitch, where even 180 plus runs are being chased, so one winning the toss would like to field so that they can chase a specific target. Both the teams have solid openers to put on a huge target and also chase huge targets.
If Kxip bats first (predicted score 150-175 ):
The Kings would want to execute big shots with the big players in their basket, Gayle in the front is a bonus for them and having Mayank Agarwal, Sarfaraz Khan and David Miller behind him would be another beneficial factor to score the big amount of runs, Rahul’s form will majorly dependent on how they come up. Also, the skipper Ashwin can bat and make 20-30 runs in the end. This could also be their major weakness as they do not have much depth in their batting line up for some finishers. It is very important for the team to have some top order batsman to remain till the end to achieve huge targets.
If SRH bats first (predicted score 160-180 ):
It will be the side led by Williamson or Bhuvi which will aim to attack the Punjab bowlers striking major shots out of the boundary line. With loss in the previous match it would be more likely for Kane to make a comeback in captaincy. Players like Hooda, Vijay Shankar and Yusuf have the potential to uplift the score in the final overs of the innings. But the last result was very poor. SRH much need a change in the middle order batting. We predict Bairstow to score a fifty, he is in good shape to over take Warner in the orange cap lead and together they are capable of creating a huge partnership.
