Match Preview

Kane Williamson-led Hyderabad has bowled first in each of their three matches. Although their bowling attack does not have star names but the likes of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Rashid Khan, Billy Stanlake, Siddharth Kaul, Shakib Al Hasan, and Sandeep Sharma, have been able to rein in their opponents and restrict them to a modest total.

Punjab bowling attack has Ashwin,  Mohit Sharma and Mujeeb, Axar Patel and Andrew Tye but their secret weapon is the 17-year-old spinner Mujeeb-ur-Rahman. He has surprised greatest of batsmen with his unconventional deliveries including RCB’s skipper Virat Kohli.

Although SRH boasts a good batting line up with Wriddhiman Saha, Kane Williamson, Shikhar Dhawan, and Manish Pandey they haven’t been tested against big totals.

On the other hand Kings XI Punjab, under Ravichandran Ashwin, has been super strong in the batting department. Especially, Chris Gayle, who tore the opposition camp in his first match of the season against Chennai. Kl Rahul, Mayank Agarwal, Karun Nair, and Ashwin are also performing aggressively with their bat.
