IPL Prediction for SRH vs KXIP Match
SRH Look to Further their Cause
Match No 48: SRH v KXIP
Date and Venue: 11th May 2015, Hyderabad
Head to Head: Played 5 SRH 3 KXIP 2
The race for the playoffs is getting intense and for SRH this match is important in the context of the tournament. For KXIP, however, the outcome of this match will not matter much for them.
The last time these two teams met at Mohali it Sunrisers Hyderabad who came on top. Despite getting a par score of 150, Hyderabad bowlers were on the mark against the out of form Kings XI Punjab batsmen. David Warner was again the star for Hyderabad with the bat. While with the ball it was Trent Boult who made all the difference picking up 3 wickets.
Sunrisers Hyderabad has made a bold decision by dropping both Dale Steyn and Trent Boult from the line up and bringing in an extra batsman in Ravi Bopara to strengthen that feeble middle order. Since that move Hyderabad has won both the games they have played. Eoin Morgan has finally turned up in this IPL with a blazing 63 off 28 balls against Rajasthan Royals.
Ravi Bopara has been used by Hyderabad as a hitter lower down the order while Henriques is the one around whom the other batsmen needs to bat around. He was the star of the match against Delhi Daredevils as he hit 74 off 46 balls on a pitch which was not an easy one to bat. Starting off slow he made it up by hitting some lusty blows at the end to give their bowlers a decent total to defend.
The bowling department, however, has looked weak in the absence of Steyn and Boult. With Praveen Kumar going for plenty in the last few matches and none apart from Bhuvanehwar Kumar able to impress at the death it is a problem they need to rectify.
Kings XI Punjab showed some form with the bat in their previous game with the likes of Maxwell finally living to his expectation scoring 43 off 22 balls. In fact everyone chipped in with 20s and 30s as they ended up with the score of 183 runs. However, it was again Andre Russell who was the demolisher for them as he plundered their bowling like he did the last time these two teams played against each other.
In the bowling department it was finally when KXIP preferred form over reputation as Beuran Hendericks was brought in for Mitchell Johnson. Gurkeerat Singh Mann was brought in for the game as he was impressive with ball. He had figures of 3-0-17-2.
