Kings XI Punjab will take on Sunrisers Hyderabad in the 22nd match of the ongoing IPL 2020 at Dubai International Stadium on Thursday.
Both of these teams are in the bottom half of the points table and they would look to get a much needed win under their belt.
We have come up with a Match Prediction for you which can help you in placing the right bets. We will discuss current form, head to head, stats and players to watch out for in the upcoming match.
Punjab have won a solitary match out of the five they have played. In fact, the KL Rahul-led team has lost three matches in a row, which must have dropped some shoulders in the dressing room. It is important that they bounce back in style as the tables can quickly turn in a tournament like the IPL.
On the other hand, SRH suffered a huge loss at the hands of reigning champions Mumbai Indians in their previous game. SRH have won only two matches out of the five they have played. The Orange Army will need to come up with a collective effort with both bat and ball.
Head to Head:
Total matches – 14, Won by SRH – 10, Won by KXIP – 4.
Players to watch out for:
KXIP – KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal, Nicholas Pooran and Mohammed Shami will be the key players.
SRH – David Warner, Jonny Bairstow, Manish Pandey, Kane Williamson and Rashid Khan will be the important players.
Based on Head to Head and current form, SRH will be slightly favourites against KXIP. SRH will want more from their inexperienced middle order and they will look to register their third win of the season against depleted KXIP. On the other hand, Punjab would aim to bounce back after three consecutive losses.
