Dubai International stadium which saw high scoring games in the last two matches played here will host the Kings XI Punjab and Sunrisers Hyderabad for the 22nd match of IPL 2020. SRH is currently having a mixed season. Having won just 2 matches out of the 5 matches played so far, they have now fallen behind the radar with the injury of lead pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar. KXIP on the other hand has had a terrible season so far. They have managed to win just one game so far and they will be hoping to capitalize on the absence of Bhuvneshwar Kumar to secure their second win.

Sunrisers Hyderabad to win the match
Head to Head (overall)
Head to Head (in UAE)
This is one of the low profile matches of IPL 2020. With both teams having very few fans compared to the other teams, the excitement building up to this match is quite less. But nonetheless, this match has all those ingredients to be one of the best in IPL 2020. Both teams are struggling badly and a turn-around is a must for both the teams. For that reason, many changes are also expected in the eleven. Starting with KXIP, they will most likely bring in Mujeeb and the Universe Boss Chris Gayle in place of Maxwell and Jordan.
With regard to SRH, there will be one forced change. Bhuvneshwar Kumar who is ruled out of the tournament will be replaced by Sandeep Sharma in the eleven. The rest of the team is expected to be the same.
KXIP Playing 11: Chris Gayle, KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal, Mandeep Singh, Nicholas Pooran, Sarfaraz Khan, Mohammad Shami, Ravi Bishnoi, Sheldon Cottrell, Ishan Porel, Mujeeb-Ur-Rahman.
SRH Playing 11: David Warner, Jonny Bairstow, Manish Pandey, Kane Williamson, Abdul Samad, Abhishek Sharma, Priyam Garg, Rashid Khan, Sandeep Sharma, Sidharth Kaul/ Khaleel Ahmed, T Natrajan

Despite the long boundaries, Dubai has seen many 200+ games. With batting heavy teams on both sides, expect nothing less than a cracking game. Almost 70% of the games were won by teams batting first, so its wise to bat first on this pitch. Considering the line-ups of both the teams' anything above 180 seems to be a good enough score.
If Sunrisers Hyderabad bats first: 160-170
If Kings XI Punjab bats first: 180-190
Players who are expected to perform well as per Dream11 Prediction.
KXIP- KL Rahul/ Mayank Agarwal
These two are in splendid form. With the rest of the batting unit not stepping up to the mark, the pressure is high on them to deliver consistently. They are expected to do justice to those expectations in this match as well. If you are in for IPL betting, bet on either of these two to score the maximum runs in this match.
SRH- David Warner
David Warner is one of the most consistent batsmen in IPL history. With a weak bowling unit at the opposition, he will be in attacking mode from ball one.
Other Prominent Options: Jonny Bairstow, Kane Williamson, Nicholas Pooran, Chris Gayle (If he plays).
KXIP- Mohammad Shami
He has been almost unplayable in the powerplay. If he can replicate that in the death overs as well, then KXIP will have fewer problems to worry about.
SRH- Rashid Khan
The spin magician got back to form in the last match. As for IPL betting tips, he is a sure shot bowler to invest your money in.
Other Prominent options: T. Natarajan, Ravi Bishnoi, Mujeeb Ur Rahman (If he plays)
Player of the Match
SRH's chances in this match depend heavily on Spin King Rashid Khan. Taking into account his current form, he is expected to do that job and bag the prestigious Player of the Match award.
