IPL 2017, KXIP vs SRH Match Prediction Who Will Win: Kings XI Punjab will take on defending champions Sunrisers Hyderabad for the second time in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2017 at the PCA Stadium in Mohali on 28th April. Punjab will look to get back to winning track who are currently placed at 5th spot with 6 points in the table. They began IPL 10 campaign with two straight victories in the first two games but then lost 3 matches in a row.
Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) are looking very shaky in the tournament as they have won just 3 games out of the 7 they have played so far. They have not looked a settled side and have struggled to find the right combination of foreign players. Their bowling has also looked very ordinary as the pacers have leaked way too many runs without taking many wickets. But, Hashim Amla has been in brilliant form with the bat as he is second on the list of leading run-scorers of the tournament with 299 runs in 7 matches.
Australians Shaun Marsh and Glenn Maxwell have also looked in good touch with the bat recently. Axar Patel has been their most valuable player with very useful contributions coming in both with the bat and the bowl. KXIP will depend a lot on these players to help them beat the defending champions.
On the other hand, Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) have had a little roller coaster of a ride in this tournament thus far as they have won and lost some very close encounters. They have played 8 games thus far and have won 4 and have shared the points in a rain-abandoned outing against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) a couple of nights ago.
Sunrisers have had a pretty consistent opening pair in the form of David Warner and Shikhar Dhawan as both of them have done the bulk of the scoring for them. Kane Williamson is also looking in sublime touch as he smashed 89 off 51 balls against the Delhi Daredevils (DD) in his first game of the season. The bowling also looks pretty sorted out with Bhuvneshwar Kumar leading the way wearing his purple cap with 16 scalps so far in the tournament along with Rashid Khan with 10 wickets.
The last time these two teams met was in the 19th match of the season that took place at The Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Hyderabad on 17th April. Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) put 159 on the board on a track that looked pretty slow with the help of a Captain’s knock from David Warner who made an unbeaten 70 off 54 balls.
Things looked pretty good for the home side in the second half as they got the visitors down to 62-5 at the end of just the 10th over. But then came a resurgent inning from the opener Manan Vohra as he smashed 95 runs from just 50 balls to get his team back in the hunt. But he couldn’t finish it off as he got out in the 19th over of the innings courtesy Bhuvneshwar Kumar who produced a magical spell of 5-19 to edge his team over the finish line.
