In match 22 of the Indian Premier League 2019 (IPL2019), R Ashwin's Kings XI Punjab will host Sunrisers Hyderabad at PCS IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali on Monday. SRH, who have played four matches with Bhuvneshwar Kumar as stand-in captain, have fared well in IPL 2019 so far but they suffered an unexpected loss on Saturday after Mumbai Indians' new recruit Alzarri Joseph took 6 wickets on his debut IPL match. Kings XI Punjab lost their last match against Chennai Super Kings despite a crucial partnership between KL Rahul and Sarfaraz Khan Chennai spinners managed to choke the run flow following which the batting line-up crumbled. Hyderabad is dependent on opener David Warner and Jonny Bairstow for runs and their Ashwin's team would chalk out a plan to eliminate them early.

Kings XI Punjab team news
With not much changes in the IPL 2019 so far, Punjab may keep the same playing 11 as of their last match. Chris Gayle has not been able to help the team when it needed the most and his form may be a point of concern for Ahswin. KL Rahul has been in form but he needs to brush-up more to take his team to victory and not lose it half-way.
With Mohammad Shami, Sam Curran, Murugan Ashwin and R Ashwin, they have a strong bowling attack and they know how to restrict batsmen from scoring.
Punjab is a strong team but they usually falter in mid-overs as opposition starts hitting runs, this is the area where Ashwin would be looking to improve, a glimpse of which was visible in their last match against CSK.
Sunrisers Hyderabad team news
SRH was going strong but in their last match against Mumbai Indians they failed to chase a decent target after David Warner and Jonny Bairstow's early departure and debutant Alzarri Joseph's 6-wicket haul on debut IPL match.
The untested middle order, including Deepak Hooda, Vijay Shankar, Manish Pandey and Yusuf Pathan, can hurt anytime and it was seen in their last match when Mumbai wrapped up the team for just 96 runs.
Kane Williamson's absence was not felt so far but the team would now be looking for his return and SRH may also make changes in the playing 11 after their last match debacle.
Here are the playing 11 probables of both the teams:
SRH playing 11: David Warner, Jonny Bairstow, Manish Pandey, Yusuf Pathan, Deepak Hooda, Rashid Khan, Mohammed Nabi, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Sandeep Sharma, Siddharth Kaul, Vijay Shankar
KXIP playing 11: KL Rahul(w), Chris Gayle, Mayank Agarwal, Sarfaraz Khan, David Miller, Mandeep Singh, Sam Curran, Ravichandran Ashwin(c), Andrew Tye, Murugan Ashwin, Mohammed Shami
