Match 22, KXIP v SRH | Preview

After handling the defeat on the other night, both Punjab and Hyderabad will look to get back on track with a win here.

Both the teams are highly dependent on their opening pair and the middle-order hasn’t come greatly in recent times. Especially for Hyderabad, who bowed out cheaply against Mumbai Indians the other night.

With Kane Williamson is yet to recover 100 per cent, Bhuvneshwar Kumar will captain the side and Hyderabad will not make any further changes. The same might applies to the Punjab team as well.

It is certainly a great opportunity for a player like Vijay Shankar, Sarfraz Khan to fire.
