Sunrisers Hyderabad  has a dominant 10-4 win-loss record over Kings XI Punjab in IPL 


Up next in the tournament, Kings XI Punjab will take on Sunrisers Hyderabad at Dubai International Cricket Stadium. 22nd game of Indian Premier League 2020 will witness an encounter between two unbalanced side of this tournament. Kings XI Punjab are placed on bottom of the points table with just one win out of total five matches played, whereas, Sunrisers Hyderabad have just managed to win two games out of total five matches played. 

Kings XI Punjab have done worse than Sunrisers Hyderabad. Still there are many number of matches to be played ahead but a loss will definitely push them away from playoffs. Both the teams will be desperate to win this game and we expect both to come hard at each other. 

Not many of us would have thought about this condition of Kings XI Punjab before the start of this tournament. However their net run rate suggest that margin of losses haven't been huge and Kings XI Punjab would have been in a better position. 

Well it is not like that everything have gone against KXIP this season. KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal are placed in top three position in terms of highest run scorers this season. Biggest problem for Punjab is the poor form of their middle order batsmen. Glenn Maxwell hasn't done anything much on the field while Nicholas Pooran has also had hit and miss. Karun Nair is again an under performing batsman. 

In terms of bowling none other than Mohammad Shami and Ravi Bishnoi have bowled consistently. Sheldon Cottrell do picks up wickets but his economy rate is under suspect. Surprisingly Punjab hasn't given chance to Mujeeb Ur Rahman - someone who has the ability to solve their bowling issues. Chris Jordan could be more handy than Cottrell as English bowler has lot of experience under his belt. 

Kings XI Punjab has consistently made changes in their playing eleven but still no positive outcome could be seen. However team management needs to fix these issues before it get too late. 

On the other hand Sunrisers Hyderabad are also facing similar problem than that of Kings XI Punjab. They are struggling with the perfect team combination. Historically, Sunrisers are known to defend low totals but with the loss of Bhuvneshwar Kumar for rest of the tournament, their strength could turn into weakness. 

In terms of batting, SRH is heavily dependent on David Warner, Jonny Bairstow, Manish Pandey. Inclusion of Kane Williamson has certainly boosted their batting but the real problem lies with the bowling. Rashid Khan hasn't been in his top form this season while T Natarajan has certainly become centre of attraction after his brilliant spell of yorkers. Siddharth Kaul was included in place of Bhuvi but he was too expensive. 

Their bowling will definitely be tested against the likes of KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal, Nicholas Pooran. Overall both the teams are heavily dependent on their star players and it will be pretty interesting to see who among the two will emerge out as winner of this game.
