The winner of this match will have a chance to break into the top-4 and will get their nose ahead in the qualification race. We expect kings XI Punjab to win this match.

Players to Bet on:

KINGS XI PUNJAB 

  1. KL Rahul – Rahul has scored 540 runs at a strike rate of 140+ this season and is well and truly ahead of the other batsmen in runs chart. He has 5 fifties and a century so far and we expect him to continue his dream season with the bat. 
  2. Nicholas Pooran – Pooran played a superb knock of 53 runs off 28 balls despite the quick wickets at the top. He will look to continue his aggressive style of batting in middle order against the spinners. 
  3. Mohammed Shami – Shami has been superb in the last 3 matches nailing perfect yorkers at will. He is second in the wickets list with 16 scalps to his name. 

SUNRISERS HYDERABAD:

  1. Manish Pandey – Pandey played brilliantly scoring 83 runs to lead his team in the chase after the openers were dismissed cheaply. We expect him to stay at No.3 position and play more effectively for the team. 
  2. David Warner – Warner has 335 runs at a strike rate of 125 in this season. He has been at his usual best despite scoring 300+ runs and we expect him play a big knock in this match to help his post a massive total.  
  3. Rashid Khan – Rashid Khan has the best economy among spinners and is giving runs at just 5.5 RPO. He has also scalped 12 wickets and will look to continue his superb form with the ball.
