19:32 IST Glenn Maxwell wins toss, elects to bowl first against SRH!
Welcome to inUth’sl digital coverage of Indian Premier League (IPL) 10’s Match No. 19 between Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Kings XI Punjab (KXIP). Glenn Maxwell led KXIP will be looking to get back to winning ways after they lost two straight games, he apologised to the fans on Twitter as well. On the other hand, David Warner too suffered a similar fate as his team lost the first two games and lost the ones that followed after.
Warner has been in good form this IPL 10. Warner needs to fire as SRH’s lineup looks wobbly if the big guns don’t fire. That might be a concern for Warner’s team. On the other hand, he might opt for Mustafizur Rahman in the game ahead of Henriques. Rashid Khan has been good so far for SRH, his overs will be crucial as KXIP overseas batsmen can take the game away from the opposition in a matter of few overs.
We might see a few changes in the KXIP side as their batsmen performed horribly in the previous match. Axar Patel might get promoted up the order as he batted well even KXIP lost by a big margin in their previous game. It will be interesting to see whether KXIP include Eoin Morgan in the team or not.
There are lot of overseas options for KXIP are available, they might include Martin Guptill, Shaun Marsh or Darren Sammy in the side. They have a wide array of domestic players as well, it is just about finding the right combination which Maxwell’s team has not been able to do so far.
