In match 48 of the VIVO Indian Premier League 2019 (IPL 2019), Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) will host Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Hyderabad on Monday. Kane Williamson-led SRH are at the fourth spot in IPL 2019 Points Table while R Ashwin's KXIP are at the sixth position. Both Hyderabad and Punjab have lost their previous two matches and have 10 points each from 11 matches respectively. With playoffs looming, both the teams need to win all their remaining matches to press their chase. For Hyderabad, things will get even toughter as the leading run scorer of IPL 2019, David Warner, would be playing his last match of IPL 2019 on April 29 as he has to join Australia's camp for the ICC World Cup 2019. Hyderabad may replace warner with Martin Guptill. Punjab does not face any such issue and they would look to play without much changes.
For Hyderabad, the otherwise brilliant Kane Williamson has not been able to score runs and with both the openers gone, they would rely on Manish Pandey and Deepak Hooda to shoulder some resposibility.
Martin Guptill is likely to join the team and that will be a big booster.
The bowling department is well settled and Hyderabad should not touch that area but they may consider resting Siddarth Kaul who usually leaks runs.ALSO READ: ICC World Cup 2019: Check the 15-player provisional squads of all the teams
The batting unit of Punjab is formidable and that's a relief for the team as most of the batsmen are in-form, especially openers KL Rahul and Chris Gyale.
Mayank Agrwal, David Miller and Mnadeep Singh form a good support in the middle.
All eyes will be on Nicholas Pooran, who almost snatched the victory from RCB in their previous clash as he hit 44 off 28 balls with a boundary and five sixes.
