Both teams are not looking in the best of form and a win could help change their fortunes now.

With the return of Kiwi skipper Kane Williamson in the team, their middle-order looks formidable. Youngsters Priyam Garg and Abhishek Sharma looked good till now but need to be more consistent for the team. Afghanistan allrounder Rashid Khan can change the direction of any game by his bowling and batting. Their leader of bowing attack Bhuvneshwar Kumar injured in the last game and will be out of the remaining season of IPL. Their pace bowling line-up comprising with Sandip Sharma and Khaleel Ahmed are bowling well. They will be looking forward to defeating fragile Kings XI Punjab to gain some momentum in this tournament.
Kings XI Punjab
Kings XI Punjab are ranked at last position in the points table as they lost four games in this season with a solitary win. Despite remarkable batting performances from skipper Lokesh Rahul and Mayank Agarwal, Punjab couldn’t win many games. Rahul is the highest run-scorer in this season. Mayank Agarwal is the third-highest run-scorer in this season.
Leader of their pace attack Mohammed Shami bowled well this season. He is the second-highest wicket-taker in this season with 8 wickets in 5 games. Skipper Rahul and head coach Anil Kumble be will contemplating on how to convert close games to win. Death bowling has been their biggest concern until now as they are leaking more runs in death over than any other team. Sheldon Cottrell and Jimmy Neesham failed massively in death overs. They need to plan death overs neatly in upcoming games. Spinner Ravi Bishnoi performed well in this season. They will want to defeat fragile Sunrisers Hyderabad in the next game to leave the last position in the points table.
These two teams played each other 10 times in last five years, Sunrisers Hyderabad won eight games out of them and Kings XI Punjab won only two games.
Sunrisers Hyderabad are more likely to win this match as their middle order looks stronger than that of Kings XI Punjab.
