The flagship cricket league of the world in Indian Premier League will have a game being played as Kings XI Punjab face off against SunRisers Hyderabad in the regular season on Monday.
Kings XI Punjab in the sixth spot in the league table with three wins and two losses. The team has some explosive firepower in all departments but have not been consistent enough to be dominant. The franchise has only played one final in the IPL in their history, and if they want to emulate a similar level of success, it will be down to the main players in the roster. It is crunch time for them because a series a loss from this point forth will ruin their campaign.
Meanwhile, SunRisers Hyderabad are one of the favourites to win it all this season and have been thoroughly dominant. Barring the last game where their entire batting order failed to perform, the team has been in good form the majority of the games. Openers David Warner and Jonny Bairstow are cerebral and will be looking to score quickfire runs for the rest of the campaign.
Venue – Punjab Cricket Association Stadium, Chandigarh, India
