Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) will take on Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) in their sixth match of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 at Dubai International Cricket Stadium on October 8.
Sunrisers Hyderabad, whose campaign began with two losses, had bounced back with two consecutive wins but in the last match they suffered a big loss at the hands of Mumbai Indians and now will look to return to winning ways against Kings XI Punjab.
Hyderabad has suffered a big blow as their leading pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been ruled out of the tournament due to an injury and in his absence the likes of Rashid Khan, T Natrajan and Sandeep Sharma have to take extra responsibility. In the batting David Warner, Jonny Bairstow and Kane Williamson have to lead from front.
On the other hand, Kings XI Punjab who is on a three-match losing streak is on backfoot as they have only one win from five matches and are now in a position where one or two more losses can put them in trouble so they need to get back to winning ways in this match and captain KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal and Mohammad Shami have to do something special to inspire whole team.
In the middle order, Mandeep Singh, Sarfaraz Khan, Glenn Maxwell and Nicholas Pooran have to play bigger knocks so they can post a good total. In the bowling, Shami and Cottrell have to take wickets with new ball and in the death overs someone like Shami or Jordan has to step up.
