It’s going to be a crucial tie between Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Kings XI Punjab (KXIP). Both the teams have struggled, of late, to find themselves in a trickiest of the situations. With things pretty tight for the No.4 spot owing to the playoffs berth, the equation is simple both teams need to win their remainder of the fixtures. However, it could further go down to the net run-rate, too Altogether, SRH wouldn’t want to tinker much with their playing XI.

In between, Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) are closing in for the intriguing battle.

On the points table, SRH is placed at fourth place with 10 points, whereas, KXIP with same number of points is placed at sixth spot with their net run-rate into minus.

So far, SRH’s middle order has demoralized the team, whereas, Punjab’s openers did their best, but they couldn’t click as a unit following a good start to the season.

As both teams have some star players, it’s their time to guide their side for the much-awaited playoffs.

Here’s the Sunrisers Hyderabad’s Predicted Playing XI:

David Warner:

The talismanic left-handed batsman David Warner hasn’t done anything wrong so far in the ongoing season. The Orange Cap holder has played delightful strokes to amass 611 runs in 11 innings at the staggering average of 67.89.

Kane Williamson:

Skipper Kane Williamson is struggling with his bat. He has amassed just 41 runs in five innings which is hurting SRH’s cause. Even though opening the innings with Warner in the previous game against Royals, Williamson has looked pretty dismal with a bat.

Manish Pandey:

In the last two matches, Manish Pandey has made things worst for the bowlers. He has amassed 198 runs in seven innings which include two back-to-back fifties.

Vijay Shankar:

In the last game, Vijay Shankar has struggled yet again. He has scored 173 runs in 10 innings, but he is that sort of a batsman who could take down the opposition at any moment. Given this quality, he has been given a go.

In the absence of Jonny Bairstow, Shakib Al Hasan has made it to the playing XI. He scored just nine in one inning apart from a wicket of Ajinkya Rahane.

Deepak Hooda has been one of the reasons for SRH’s middle-order failure, however, given to his potential, he on his day has taken the attack to the opposition. He would be pretty kee to take rust off in a crucial tie with KXIP.

Wriddhiman Saha:

Wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha got the opportunity in the absence of Bairstow–to don the gloves. But he couldn’t do much after scoring just five in his first appearance of this season.

However, his inclusion could lift the team’s spirit despite being in a spot of bother.

Rashid Khan:

Rashid Khan has the ability to swing his willow, however, overall he is leading the wickets chart for the SRH with 11 scalps in as many innings.

The leg-spinner has bowled his heart out apart from having a rare off-day.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar:

The seam and swing bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar is fourth on the list of most wicket takers for Hyderabad. He has scalped eight wickets in 11 matches. However, he could have done far better while going by his grit and passion

Siddarth Kaul:

Siddarth Kaul had been economical in between, however, he needs to give his best against Punjab which is laced with some top-class batters.

The pacer has so far claimed six wickets in seven matches.

Khaleel Ahmed:

The impressive left-arm pacer Khaleel Ahmed has impressed one and all during his couple of experience.

Moreover, he has snared eight wickets in just five matches.

A plus point for the hosts will be that Khaleel has emerged as a wicket-taking option early on.
