Sunrisers Hyderabad can climb into the Indian Premier League’s playoff places by beating visitors Kings XI Punjab this afternoon.
Hyderabad will be looking to bounce back after suffering their first home defeat of the season on Monday.
Shikhar Dhawan’s side sere soundly beaten by the Mumbai Indians, who chased down 158 with seven wickets and eight balls to spare, thanks to knocks of 68 from Lendl Simmons and Ambati Rayudu.
Kings XI head into the contest as favourites, having won seven of their nine matches so far in IPL 7.
The Mohali outfit will replace the Chennai Super Kings at the top of the table on net run rate if they pick up maximum points from their trip south.
Fans can expect both the Purple Cap and the Orange Cap to be on show at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium.
Kings XI star Glenn Maxwell is currently in possession of the Orange Cap, having hit a whopping 474 runs in his nine IPL outings.
Meanwhile, Hyderabad bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar is just one wicket behind Purple Cap holder Mohit Sharma.
Kumar will seize possession of Sharma’s crown if he draws level with the CSK man, as he has a significantly lower economy rate.
Prediction: Kings XI’s in-form batsmen to thrive on a very good pitch. Mitchell Johnson to knock over one or both of fellow Australian all-stars Aaron Finch and David Warner, exposing Hyderabad’s fragile middle order. Away win.
