After getting defeated in two matches, the third math for Sunrisers was a great boost to its team. The players are all charged up to battle it out against Kings XI as they are having the best scores from the beginning of this IPL tournament.
The match is going to be held at the Rajiv Gandhi Stadium in Hyderabad at 8 pm. There is a lot of pressure of Sunrisers as they are going to play on their home ground. The last time when these two teams played against each other, Punjab won by 15 runs with the help of Gayle’s century.
Without Gayle it was difficult for Punjab to win the match against Delhi but still they managed to win the match. Both Punjab and Hyderabad will need their talisman to perform amazingly for winning the match. Gayle is in real good form which is a plus point for Punjab. In the last match he scored a 104 runs in 63 balls. Till now he has scored two fifties and a hundred.
Today the openers will try to put up a high score for Hyderabad to beat. Gayle and K L Rahul are in great form. This could be a point where the team strategy of Hyderabad should be keeping the players off the field.
In the absence of Bhuvneshwar, Basil Thampi and Siddarth have to take the early responsibility. The middle overs should be checked by thr spinners Mohommad Nabi, Rashid and Shakid Al Hasan.
Now it time to see whether Punjab will maintain a record of their high scores or Hyderabad will win this match. It is going to be important for both the teams.
