David Warner and Jonny Bairstow will hold the key of batting department for the Hyderabad team as then except Williamson there is lack of experience . Though Priyam Garg along with Abhishek sharma has impressed .
Kings XI Punjab has one of the most successful opening pair of this years IPL with KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal both having good form an both have them scored centuries also this year.
Hyderabad has a better bowling lineup as compared to Punjab On the basis of current performances this year .
In Today's Encounter , two teams will take on each other who are at the bottom half of the Points table and will like to earn two crucial points required to stay in race for the playoffs . Kings XI Punjab will take on Sunrisers Hyderabad on Thursday at Dubai International Stadium .Sunrisers Hyderabad have historically been a bowling-heavy team that depends heavily on their fast-bowling, but with Bhuvneshwar Kumar out injured, Sunrisers Hyderabad are certainly in a spot of bother. David Warner will like to contribute as he is not found his touch yet though he scored in the previous game. Kane Williamson has also failed to make a impact till now in the middle order . Natarjan has been very impressive in this tournament with his Yokers at the death.
When the Kings XI Punjab romped past Royal Challengers Bangalore, not many would have imagined that the Kings will find themselves in the position they are in. They have been dismal in all the matches they played thereafter and would need a spectacular effort to bounce back from here. KL Rahukl and Mayank Agarwal has been terrific in this years tournament but cant help to the success as team effort is required to win matches .Middle-order has not got going till now though pooran's previous innings wauld give him confidence . Except Shami and Ravi Bishnoi all bowlers has been ineffective and leaking runs . Mujeeb may get a chance to play seeing the bowling department failure since few matches and its high time now for the team management to take decision .
Although it was expected to be otherwise, Dubai has so far been a pretty high-scoring venue. More often than not, the teams batting first have enjoyed optimal conditions to bat and the dew has ensured that it isn't too different in the second innings. For the team that bats second, negotiating the first few overs has been key to hunt down huge totals. Considering what has happened in the recent matches and the surface condition likely to be in the upcoming match, the team batting first would want to post a total of at least 185.
In all the matches played here so far, only once the team batting first has emerged on top. For the team chasing, it will be imperative to keep wickets in hand to take advantage of the dew, which tends to come into effect at around 10th over. However, the pressure of chasing could make a massive difference here considering that the surface tends to slow down with the passage of time. That is certainly likely to have a bearing on the decision made at the toss and we expect the captain winning the toss to bat first.
