SRH vs KXIP Dream11 Prediction: Two teams who are struggling to make a mark in this year’s Indian Premier League, Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kings XI Punjab, positioned at No. 6 and No. 8 respectively are set for a faceoff desperate for those elusive two points. Both the teams have their set of problems, Sunrisers have put too much faith in the opening pair of David Warner and Jonny Bairstow, after what they achieved last season, but the duo has been disappointing so far and that has added to their problems which also has mediocre bowling attach, except for Rashid Khan, who has once again been brilliant. For KXIP, their biggest problem is the rate at which their captain KL Rahul scores. Rahul has 302 runs so far and is one of the prime contenders to win the Orange Cap, but at what price? He puts too much of a price on his wickets means he is afraid of taking any risks, add KXIP’s death bowling vows to that and the combo is deadly for themselves. SRH and KXIP will know the mistakes they are making and the team that adjusts better will win this game and have a chance to make it to top-4.
Indian Premier League Season 13
Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Kings XI Punjab
Date – Thursday, 08 October 2020
Time: 7:30 PM (IST); 6:00 PM (Local Time)
Venue – Dubai International Stadium, Dubai
Pitch Report: The captain who wins the toss should opt to bat first considering that in the 9 matches here so far, 7 times captains have chosen to bowl first ending up on the losing side every single time. It seems that chasing is not simple here and eying for a big total upfront is the way to go.
Team News SRH: Injury to Bhuvneshwar Kumar has disrupted SRH’s plans as he was one of their premier bowlers. Sandeep Sharma, his replacement in the last match against Mumbai Indians, had a decent outing. Khaleel Ahmed has regained fitness and could be included today.
Team News KXIP: It has been extremely strange to see Mujeeb Ur Rahman not getting a match even though KXIP’s bowling has been horrific. They brought in Chris Jordan in the last match to solve their death-over problem and are likely to give him one more outing, which means more waiting time for Mujeeb.

Rashid Khan: Rashid has been Sunrisers best player this season by far and looks confidence in his approach which cannot be said about his skipper. Rashid must be upset that SRH are not winning too many matches and will give his all to change that. SRH bowls their ace-spinner in the toughest situations which means more wicket-taking opportunity for him.
KL Rahul: Rahul’s tons of runs may be hurting his team but he is a superhit when it comes to Fantasy League. The elegant right-hander is hellbent on not giving his wicket away even if he is wasting too many balls which is suicidal for KXIP but not to you as you need his batting and wicket-keeping points in SRH vs KXIP Dream11 Match Prediction.
Jonny Bairstow: Bairstow hasn’t been close to his best and that is the reason why Sunrisers are struggling. It seems that his captain’s negative attitude has influenced him too and he should remember what has made him such a threat in T20s. We expect Bairstow to go for it from the first ball, and if he does that, he will be hard to stop.
Nicholas Pooran: Pooran has shown what he is capable of in the last two innings hitting some lusty blows and KXIP must find a way to give him more balls to face. Pooran is a game-changer and can tear apart a bowling attack but he hasn’t been used properly.
Kane Williamson: We went with Williamson because he is a great player and can win a T20 match with his bat. He is coming to bat at No. 4 and SRH can rethink that policy as Williamson can manoeuvre the ball better than anyone and also takes risks whenever is needed.
Mayank Agarwal: We feel bad for Agarwal as with 272 runs and that too at a brilliant strike-rate, unlike KL Rahul, he must be wondering what he has to do more for his team to win more. He has been their best batsman and an x-factor for sure.
HYD vs PUN Dream11 Expert Picks: Most Affordable Players
Abdul Samad (Credits 8): The Kashmiri all-rounder came in the tournament with a lot of hype around him and he has done well so far. He showed that he can produce big shots in the end overs and is more than handy with his quick leg-spinners. He is a genuine option in this SRH vs KXIP Today Match Prediction.
Sarfaraz Khan (Credits 8): He was at his innovative best in the last match and played fearlessly. Sarfaraz doesn’t get too much opportunity with the bat but he can make a mark even if he ends up playing 10-15 balls.
