The IPL tournament which can also be called a Vacation plan for everyone is going to be a battle between the Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kings XI Punjab to be played at Rajiv Gandhi Stadium.
Today’s match prediction for SRH vs KXIP:
Toss Predictions :
The Pitch report for Rajiv Gandhi Stadium where it is a typical Indian wicket dry and breaking up as the match progresses it slows down. It is a bit ground so spinners get more opportunity of tossing up the ball and get plenty of wickets. Spinners are brought later in the game, the team that wins the toss would want to bat first and defend in second innings.
If SRH bats first (predicted score 160-180 )
There are potential batsmen in the team who can play match-winning innings and can score a big individual score which will reflect the main scoreboard. Williamson, Guptill or Warner (whoever opens) and Yusuf Pathan, Deepak Hooda and Vijay Shanker will be the strong and consistent line-up a bowling unit will have to pass the toughest test. We predict Williamson to end as highest run-scorer from the Sunrisers team.
If KXIP bats first (predicted score 160-190)
Punjab will look to counter-attack the Sunrisers bowlers with a quick start runs, maximizing the use of the Powerplay, Gayle and Rahul will be the architect of Punjab’s predicted score. Moises Henriques will play against his former franchise that is SRH and will aim to use his familiarity with the conditions.
Team News for SRH vs KXIP:
There will be options to open the innings between Warner, Martin Guptill, Jonny Bairstow and Wrriddhiman Saha. It would be tough calls to make for a perfect playing XI. Hyderabad’s major strength is their bowling unit as they had defended low totals last season. Williamson will be the key batsman, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Rashid Khan will be the core of bowling unit.
