IPL moves towards South as Sunrisers Hyderabad host Kings XI Punjab for a match tonight. The venue for this match would be Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad. While Kings XI Punjab are out of the race, Sunrisers still have a bright chance of making it to the play offs. Chennai Super Kings have already reached the play offs. Watch today's IPL match live on Star Sports and HotStar with live telecast on Sony Six and Sony Max.
Sunrisers Hyderabad stayed alive in the race after clinching a win over fighting Delhi Daredevils. After posting 163 on board, SRH managed to restrict Delhi Daredevils to 157 runs. A match before this Sunrisers proved their mettle when they defeated Rajasthan Royals by 7 runs at Brabourne Stadium. It is good for the team to see the middle order clicking on time. The team had relied too much on Shikhar Dhawan and David Warner for big totals. Now Eoin Morgan and Moises Henriques too contribute to the team's efforts.
We know what needs to be done. We're ready to take on the KXIP tonight! #OrangeArmy #SRHvsKXIP pic.twitter.com/RUYxztGOVz— SunRisers Hyderabad (@SunRisers) May 11, 2015
Kings XI Punjab have seen everything going against them. Neither their bowling nor batting has been upto the mark. Fielding hasn't been exceptionally well. All they have to do now is play fearlessly, play for pride and play for the fans! A win here or two would give the fans a reason to cheer about.
In their previous meetings, Sunrisers Hyderabad got an upper hand with three wins out of five matches. The recent match between this two teams was pocketed by Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Although this venue has been a hunting ground for Kings XI Punjab (four wins from five matches), their form is a big question mark today. This gives SRH an upper hand as favourites to win today.
These two teams would next face Royal Challengers Bangalore who are also in a great form!
