KXIP vs SRH Fantasy Tips:
Sunrisers Hyderabad:Sunrisers have a very good opening pair but their batting is pretty weak after that middle order has been an issue for them. The match against Mumbai Indians has proved this fact. After Jonny Bairstow and Warner, the coming batting order looks quite weak. Vijay Shankar, Manish Pandey, Deepak Hooda, and Yusuf Pathan are not going to put fear into any opposition. This is why I believe that the Sunrisers have to make the difficult call of dropping Mohammad Nabi for Kane Williamson.
Probable XI:David Warner, Jonny Bairstow (wk), Vijay Shankar, Manish Pandey, Deepak Hooda, Yusuf Pathan, Mohammad Nabi/ Kane Williamson, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar (c), Sandeep Sharma, Siddarth Kaul
Kings XI Punjab:Kings XI Punjab has won its last seven matches at Mohali. In the last season, when these two teams collide at Mohali, Chris Gayle scored a ton and made a mockery of Hyderabad bowling attack. In the previous match, chasing a score of 150 odd, Punjab got a horrible start. The Universe Boss was dismissed in the second over by Harbhajan and he got the better of Mayank in the same over to peg the visitors. But Rahul and Sarfaraz stitched together an excellent partnership of 110 runs for the third wicket. But the run rate keeps on clinching as they could not accelerate. Andrew Tye could be replaced by Hardus Viljoen for this upcoming match.
Probable XI:Lokesh Rahul (wk), Chris Gayle, Mayank Agarwal, Sarfaraz Khan, David Miller, Mandeep Singh, Sam Curran, Ravichandran Ashwin (c), Andrew Tye/Hardus Vijloen, Murugan Ashwin, Mohammed Shami
