IPL 2018: KXIP vs SRH Preview

Kane Williamson hit fifty for Sunrisers but couldn't prevent them from slipping to a first IPL defeat of the season

It was riding on his ton, the home team reached 193-3 in 20 overs.

For SRH, captain Kane Williamson is coming into match fresh from a half-century he scored against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), and the Kiwi would be hoping for more of the same against the 2014 IPL finalists. Led by the young Kiwi captain, Kane Williamson, the team is a flawless blend of senior and junior players.

Mayank Agarwal also chipped in with 18 runs hitting two fours and one six. It will be the responsibility of team over Wriddhiman Saha to give a tremendous start to the team. The bowling attack of the Sunrisers is also the reason why I haven't really considered Chris Gayle. They have few problems with the fast bowling contingent, but their batting and spinning department looked sorted and settled to lead them into the knockout stages. Aggressive batsman Shikhar Dhawan is seen in full rhythm.

He struck a 33-ball 63 against CSK and weaved a 96-run partnership with K L Rahul, the opener who has been in top form in all three games played so far.

In the points table of IPL 2018, Sunrisers Hyderabad is at the second place with six points and the team Kings XI Punjab is at the third place with four points.

On the other hand, the only match KXIP have lost so far is against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at Chinnaswamy Stadium.

The hosts, Kings XI Punjab, will be looking forward to spoiling SunRisers Hyderabad's winning run as they will contest each other in the 16 match of IPL 2018.

Another top-class batsman struggling is Aaron Finch. KXIP have a tough task ahead as they face an unbeaten SRH at the IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali on Thursday. Besides Rashid, the likes of Billy Stanlake, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Shakib Al Hasan, Sandeep Sharma and Siddharth Kaul provide a lot of options. After his dismissal, Karun Nair came along and ably supported the star of the match Gayle.

As the early front-runner, SRH carries the tag of being a pre-match favourite.
