Preview co-written by N.S. Shekhawat

Final week of the IPL 2019 league stage. Crunch matches are crunchier, with playoff spots still there for the taking. Who said Mondays were boring?!

Sunrisers Hyderabad are still in control of their destiny. A win today will go a long way to securing qualification given their strong net run rate. However, they aren’t without their issues. Their top order has been the biggest reason why they have won games this season, with their middle order continuing to underwhelm. Nos. 4-7 have the lowest run rate of any team (6.40), least balls per wicket (12.9) and worst balls-per-boundary ratio (11.8). With KKR, KXIP and RR hot on their heels, SRH need to win.

Will it be a repeat of last season for Kings XI Punjab? They were well on track for a playoffs appearance in IPL 2018, before collapsing to finish second-from-bottom. Now, they have lost four of their last five matches after a strong start to the season, raising fears of deja vu. KXIP have struggled vs SRH in Hyderabad, and there is no better time than now to put an end to this. Can they step up under pressure?

Key to a SRH win

David Warner, Kane Williamson and Manish Pandey hold a huge key to SRH’s chances. The top order has done the bulk of SRH’s scoring in IPL 2019, and with the playoffs so close, the top three need to deliver the goods. David Warner has now crossed 600 runs for the tournament, and with KXIP’s seamers expensive throughout the tournament, an opportunity awaits Warner to play another big knock. However, SRH have a problem with Wriddhiman Saha playing as a finisher, so if SRH choose to play him as opener, would they risk moving Pandey one spot down from his preferred number three position? If SRH persist with Saha down the order, then much depends on the top order, including Vijay Shankar who needs runs, to get a big score.

Also, can SRH’s attack get the better of KXIP? This game could be a battle between the two top orders, so how the likes of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed and Rashid Khan fare is of huge interest. The wickets of KL Rahul and Chris Gayle will be key, but KXIP still possess some dangerous players in the middle order that SRH have to guard against. Will it be Mohammad Nabi who comes back, along with Sandeep Sharma given that Siddarth Kaul struggled last game?

Key to a KXIP win

KXIP’s seamers were carted around badly vs RCB. They have struggled for control in recent games, and must put on a better showing against a dangerous SRH top order. Mohammed Shami has had his good moments this season, and Ravi Ashwin will be hoping he can make inroads into SRH’s lineup in the powerplay. With the two Ashwin’s bowling well, KXIP desperately need a collective bowling effort in a crunch game.

Also, can KXIP also produce a collective batting performance? Their top five all contributed to the cause in the loss vs RCB, producing partnerships that had RCB worried when defending 203. Against an SRH attack not quite firing as they did last season, an opportunity awaits KXIP’s top five to produce the goods. KL Rahul and Chris Gayle will be crucial, and so too Mayank Agarwal and Nicholas Pooran in maintaining the momentum. However, can David Miller (if picked) bat with more fluency?

Stats and Facts

Match Prediction

Logic said RCB could beat DC given their great record at Feroz Shah Kotla. Also, MI had won eight straight vs KKR, so they were in prime position to win.

Right?

Wrong!

IPL 2019 continues to spring surprises. However, I have the feeling that a good record will apply here. SRH have a fine record vs KXIP, and even though they don’t look as good as previous seasons, I think they have enough in them to win at home.
