Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH vs KXIP Dotball Team Prediction)
After the departure of Jonny Bairstow, SRH is looking quite different. When he was playing alongside David Warner, SRH were looking strong and were playing a pretty dominant cricket, but now certainly the days have changed from easy to tough as he has departed for the national duty.
SRH have not got a good start in the last match, although Manish Pandey tried his best to put up a great score for the bowlers to defend from another end, nobody supported him with the bat. A total of 6 players couldn’t touch a score in double figures against Royals which was a real setback and major reason for their humiliating defeat against Rajasthan Royals.
Kane Williamson, David Warner, and Manish Pandey will have to play some sensible cricket, keeping their inexperienced middle order in their mind. Vijay Shankar, who has been given preference over Rishabh Pant and Ambati Rayudu in Wolrd Cup need to show that he is capable of scoring runs as well as can bowl some good spells fr his team but till now he has not able to do so for SRH.
Bowlers are doing some good job under the likes of Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Khaleel Ahmed but their 4th and 5th bowler have been a problem. Siddarth Kaul has been out of form in this season and Sandeep Sharma is having some issues with his consistency. So SRH has a good chance to try another Afghanistan allrounder Mohammed Nabi or can take a risk of playing Martin Guptill to fill some strength in their batting line up. Inclusion of Martin Guptill will certainly give some depth to their batting line up in this crucial match for SRH.
Kings XI Punjab (SRH vs KXIP Dotball Team Prediction)
KXIP are started off the season at a great note but now they are struggling in the last weeks of Indian Premier League. They have won only 1 out of their last 5 encounters and this match is just a do or die match for them.
The team is struggling with the inconsistency in the bowling department of the team. Batsmen are trying their best to chase any target that is set to chase on the scoreboard. Although in the last match KXIP batsmen disappointed their fan everyone needs to know that every time a team cannot chase a target near to 200 or above. KL Rahul and Chris Gayle are looking out to be in great form at the opening but Mayank Agarwal is not able to convert his good starts. He is getting the start in the match but is unable to convert them into big score that might help KXIP in chasing targets. He needs to back himself and should come strong in this match against SRH which is expected to be a do or die match for KXIP.
Kings have tried all the resources available for them in their bowling department, throughout the tournament they have been trying and testing several bowlers but none came out to be a standout bowler for them. They need to show some trust on senior bowlers and should give them a suitable game time so that they can get the chance to prove themselves, as the stage is big they might perform well in this match.
