It is a crucial match for these sides in the 2013 IPL as both Kings XI Punjab and Sunrisers Hyderabad need wins to continue their chase on the play-off positions.
Victory is slightly more pressing for Kings XI as a loss would effectively rule them out of qualification, as they would need to win their final three matches and hope others around them drop points.
For the Sunrisers getting into the top four would cap off an excellent debut season for the maiden franchise – they are playing in their first year since replacing the now defunct Deccan Chargers.
Both sides are coming into this game on the back of defeats to two front-runners of the competition; first-placed Chennai Super Kings beat Hyderabad on Wednesday, whilst Punjab lost to Rajasthan Royals on Thursday.
Adam Gilchrist has returned to captain the home side, after handing over responsibilities to fellow Australian David Hussey when the wicket-keeper was failing to perform with the bat.
Failing at the middle has certainly not been a problem for South African all-rounder David Miller, as the 23-year-old guided Kings XI to their last victory, over Royal Challengers Bangalore, with a 38-ball century which included hitting a six to confirm the result.
Miller’s performances have seen him chase down the Orange Cap top 10 despite only playing eight matches so far in the tournament.
This should be a close tie as although Hyderabad have been average with the bat, bowlers Amit Mishra and Thisara Perera have been in fine form taking a combined total of 32 wickets.
