David Warner will be the key for Sunrisers Hyderabad when they take on the Kings XI Punjab. KXIP have not had the best record against SRH, they lost both their encounters against Warner’s outfit. But this is a new KXIP outfit with Glenn Maxwell helming affairs. It is quite predictable that going by the trend the team winning the toss will opt to field first.
Sunrisers Hyderabad go into the tie leading 6-2 and are chasing their fifth consecutive win against Kings XI Punjab. At home, Sunrisers lead the head-to-head 3-1.
SRH spin threat Rashid Khan, who usually bowls early in the innings, could be held back to bowl to Maxwell and Miller later on since they have never faced him before.
The match is the second of the double header today and it starts at 08:00 pm IST. You can watch the match live on Sony Max, Sony Six or you can also live stream on Hotstar.
