Can Sunrisers Hyderabad extend their winning streak against Kings XI Punjab?

18:16 (IST)

‘How it started vs How it’s going’ trend brings absolutely wholesome tales, no doubt about that. Just ask KKR's Varun Chakravarthy. Last night after Kolkata's win over CSK, the spinner spoke on the surreal moment when he was bowling to MS Dhoni.

The Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) has announced that it has renamed the Behsood Cricket Stadium in Nangarhar, which is currently under construction, after the late Najeeb Tarakai who died on Tuesday. The cricketer was hit by a speeding car in Eastern Nangarhar in Jalalabad. He received sever injuries and was in coma after the accident.

Let's take a look how Kings XI Punjab batsman Mayank Agarwal who currently sits third in the race for Purple Cap with 272 runs prepares for a matchday

17:33 (IST)

INTERNATIONAL CRICKET: Following her impressive display with the bat, Australia captain Meg Lanning has reclaimed the top position for batters in the latest ICC Women’s ODI Player Rankings. She played a leading role in her side’s 3-0 whitewash of New Zealand in Brisbane that saw the six-time world champions to a record 21 consecutive wins in the format.

17:17 (IST)

In the last five matches played at the Dubai International Stadium, the team batting first has won the match four times. Overall, the pitch helps the batsmen but as was seen in the last match played here, Delhi Capitals managed to restrict Royal Challengers Bangalore to 137. The only successful chase in the last five matches was done by Chennai Super Kings against KXIP, when they did not lose even one wicket as Faf du Plessis and Shane Watson created an opening partnership record. 

17:03 (IST)

Kings XI Punjab Possible Playing XI: KL Rahul (WK), Mayank Agarwal, Glenn Maxwell, Nicholas Pooran, Mandeep Singh, Sarfaraz Khan, Mohammed Shami, Chris Jordan, Sheldon Cottrell, Ravi Bishnoi, Harpreet Brar

17:03 (IST)

Sunrisers Hyderabad Possible Playing XI: David Warner, Jonny Bairstow (WK), Manish Pandey, Kane Williamson, Abhishek Sharma, Priyam Garg, Abdul Samad, Rashid Khan, Sandeep Sharma, Siddarth Kaul, T Natarajan

16:53 (IST)

KXIP are currently parked at the bottom of the table whereas SRH are in sixth place. Given it is still the early stages of the tournament, both teams will be keen to boost their playoff chances with a win.

16:48 (IST)

Mayank Agarwal (Kings XI Punjab)

Rahul's fellow Karnataka and India team-mate has been so good atop the order that he has kept veteran Chris Gayle out of the starting XI. Agarwal's partnership with Rahul has been a positive for KXIP and he too will look to be among the runs again.

16:48 (IST)

KL Rahul (Kings XI Punjab)

The KXIP skipper has been in fine form all season thus far, leading from the front with the bat. Rahul's form has been one of the few bright spots of their season thus far and he will hope to inspire his side to a good start again.

16:48 (IST)

Priyam Garg (Sunrisers Hyderabad)

India's skipper in the U-19 World Cup held earlier this year, Garg has added some much-needed bite to SRH's middle-order. The Hyderabad side have been overly reliant on their top order in the past but the youngster's ability to find the boundary on a regular basis towards the later part of the innings make him a dangerous prospect.

16:47 (IST)

Rashid Khan (Sunrisers Hyderabad)

The Afghanistan superstar has started finding his groove again in recent matches and, much like his skipper, can be a match-winner in his own right. Not only is the leg-spinner economical - now at least in part due to the fact that batsmen prefer playing him out - but he also is regularly among the wickets.
 

16:28 (IST)

Just three hours left for the match, so let's take a look at five players who can have maximum impact:

DAVID WARNER (SUNRISERS HYDERABAD)

The SRH captain showed some glimpses of getting back in among the runs during the side's previous match against Mumbai Indians when he scored 60 in what was ultimately a losing effort. Warner's explosiveness atop the order has the capability to single-handedly win matches for Hyderabad and so team management will be hoping the southpaw does get into a consistent rhythm in this match.

16:08 (IST)

Former South African pacer Vernon Philander's younger brother Tyrone has been shot dead in Cape Town near his family's home. 

15:46 (IST)

SRH beat KXIP by 45 runs the last time these two teams clashed in an IPL encounter – in Hyderabad on the 29th of April, 2019. A 56-ball 81 from David Warner helped SRH post a mammoth 212 for 6. The Australian southpaw blasted 7 fours and 2 sixes. Saha, Pandey and Mohammad Nabi also chipped in with the bat. KL Rahul top-scored for KXIP with a 56-ball 79 but with not much support from others, the team fell short by 46 runs in the chase.

In the last meeting in the UAE: It was a Glenn Maxwell special when the two teams last met in the UAE – in Sharjah in April, 2014. The Australian powerhouse hammered 95 off just 43 deliveries to power KXIP to 193 for 6. Pujara and Sehwag also chipped in with 30s. SRH were never in the chase and were bowled out for 121 in the 20th over. Lakshmipathy Balaji was the pick of the KXIP bowlers returning with 4-13 in 4 overs.

SRH vs KXIP IPL 2020 Match Day Live Updates: Can Sunrisers Hyderabad Extend their Winning Streak Against Kings XI Punjab?

Despite brilliant individual performances, Kings XI Punjab find themselves at the bottom of the table. KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal and Mohammad Shami finding themselves among top run-getters and wicket-takers list, but KXIP have not been able to get the desired results as a team and have lost three matches in a row.

So far SRH and KXIP have met 14 times in the IPL so far and the Hyderabad-based team currently leads the head-to-head 10-4. The last time they met, SRH won by 45 runs at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad.  In the last five matches played at the Dubai International Stadium, the team batting first has won the match four times. Overall, the pitch helps the batsmen but as was seen in the last match played here between Delhi Capitals managed to restrict Royal Challengers Bangalore to 137.  Game 21 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) sees Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) take on Kings XI Punjab at Dubai. KXIP are currently parked at the bottom of the table whereas SRH are in sixth place. Given it is still the early stages of the tournament, both teams will be keen to boost their playoff chances with a win. Let us take a look take a look at five players who can have maximum impact in the match.

David Warner (Sunrisers Hyderabad): The SRH captain showed some glimpses of getting back in among the runs during the side's previous match against Mumbai Indians when he scored 60 in what was ultimately a losing effort. Warner's explosiveness atop the order has the capability to single-handedly win matches for Hyderabad and so team management will be hoping the southpaw does get into a consistent rhythm in this match.

Former South African pacer Vernon Philander's younger brother Tyrone has been shot dead in Cape Town near his family's home. Local media reported that Tyrone was delivering water to a neighbour in Ravensmead on Wednesday when he was murdered.

SRH beat KXIP by 45 runs the last time these two teams clashed in an IPL encounter – in Hyderabad on the 29th of April, 2019. A 56-ball 81 from David Warner helped SRH post a mammoth 212 for 6. The Australian southpaw blasted 7 fours and 2 sixes. Saha, Pandey and Mohammad Nabi also chipped in with the bat. KL Rahul top-scored for KXIP with a 56-ball 79 but with not much support from others, the team fell short by 46 runs in the chase. 

Former England cricketer Kevin Pietersen who had earlier criticised R Ashwin when he Mankaded Jos Buttler in the last edition of the Indian Premier League, has now come out in support of Ravichandran Ashwin on the Mankading issue.  Pietersen admitted that he has had a change of heart and now agrees with  Ashwin. 

Sunrisers Hyderabad may have lost Bhuvneshwar Kumar to a thigh muscle injury, but former India batting coach Sanjay Bangar feels that they need not worry as they have already got a handy death-overs bowler in their arsenal.  Sunrisers Hyderabad captain David Warner historically has been immense against Kings XI Punjab. The explosive Australian opening batsman has scored a whopping 819 runs in just 17 innings with 10 half-centuries. With eight of them coming in each of his last eight outings against Punjab.

Chennai Super Kings coach Stephen Fleming has revealed why Kedar Jadhav came in ahead of Ravindra Jadeja and Dwayne Bravo in their run chase against KKR last night. Stephen Fleming said the CSK think tank thought since Kedar Jadhav is a middle-to-late batter for India so he could dominate spinners Sunil Narine and Varun Chakravarthy.

David Warner-led Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and KL Rahul-led Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) are facing each other today at Dubai International Cricket Stadium with an eye on a win. Both teams have four points each in five matches they have played so far.

West Indies batting legend Brian Lara has said that MS Dhoni’s inability to finish matches for Chennai Super Kings is puzzling, and he also called for changes in their batting line-up for the remainder of the season Lara feels that Dhoni needs to maybe look at some other players for finisher's role.

Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kings XI Punjab, sixth and eighth in the IPL 2020 points table respectively, will clash on Thursday in Dubai. We take a look at some of the key match-ups. Will Sunrisers Hyderabad add to KXIP's misery? Well, the stats heavily back the team from Hyderabad. So far these two teams have met 14 times in the IPL so far and the Hyderabad-based team currently leads the head-to-head 10-4. The last time they met, SRH won by 45 runs at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad. Sunrisers set a target of 213 after David Warner top-scored with 82. In reply, despite KL Rahul’s 79, KXIP could only manage 167/8 in 20 overs.

Despite brilliant individual performances, Kings XI Punjab find themselves at the bottom of the table. KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal and Mohammad Shami finding themselves among top run-getters and wicket-takers list, but KXIP have not been able to get the desired results as a team and have lost three matches in a row.

Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) will clash with Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) in match 22 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 in Dubai on the 8th of October. It will be a clash between two sides which are languishing in the bottom-half of the points table -- SRH are sixth with two wins, while KXIP are last with just one win.

 Sunrisers Hyderabad

After two losses in the first two matches, Hyderabad came back strongly with two wins, after they brought Kane Williamson into their ranks. But the batting still remains their concern, and with Bhuvneshwar Kumar ruled out of the tournament due to an injury, they have more problems to deal with. In all probability, they will have to get Mohammad Nabi in their line up, who adds strength to batting as well as bowling. Again, David Warner will have to shine along with Jonny Bairstow, to take them to a solid total.

Kings XI Punjab

While their batting looks sorted with Mayank Agarwal and KL Rahul at top of the order, it is their bowling that has been the weak link. Mohammed Shami has been excellent, but hasn't found the right kind of support from other bowlers. They would have to take some tough calls as far as the bowling is concerned. Mujeeb-ur-Rahman and Chris Jordan could find a place in the XI. Also they must be eager to try out Ishan Porel.
