Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) vs Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH)

The match between Kings XI Punjab and Sunrisers Hyderabad should produce some incredible mini-battles with both teams having some of the top batsmen in the world playing for them. The KL Rahul-led team (KXIP) has made several changes in their arsenal during the auction by bringing in players like Glen Maxwell and Sheldon Cottrell among many others. SRH too made some smart buys in the shape of Mitchell Marsh and Fabian Allen to fill in the all-rounder’s spot.

KXIP has not been that consistent a team with only two play-offs finishes. However, SRH has been one of the most consistent teams in the IPL with 5 playoff finishes in the 7 seasons they have played, and a title win in 2016. While KXIP keeps on making some major changes in their squad before every season, SRH believes in maintaining a group of players that will form the core of the team every year. This is where the major difference lies in both teams. Their head-to-head record resonates with this fact as SRH has won 10 of the 14 matches they have played. 

Even though the team from South India looks like more of a well-rounded side on paper, KXIP has managed to form a decent team with all their recent acquisitions. With the addition of Glen Maxwell, KL Rahul will be breathing easy with the stability and firepower the Aussie provides. SRH will be yet again hoping for the Warner-Bairstow performing at their very best so that the likes of Bhuvaneshwar Kumar and Rashid Khan have enough on the board to defend. With the KXIP team looking slightly on par with SRH, this could turn out to be one of the best matches in IPL 2020.
