Although Punjab has five wins out of six games, they aren’t looking invincible. Gayle and KL Rahul usually give them strong starts but middle order guys Aaron Finch and Yuvraj Singh are failing to continue the momentum. In fact, Gayle’s absence in the previous game against Delhi Daredevils due to soreness had Punjab scrambling for runs. With a strong Bowling side, SRH has noted the same.
But in the same match with DD, Punjab’s bowling came into their own. Their team on paper is more balanced than the hosts. SRH’s batting line can’t set or chase a big target. Although their bowling has won them pretty much every game so far, they’ll need to make sure that support from the bat also comes in.
SRH Probable XI
KXIP Probable XI
Gayle comes in and Yuvraj is replaced with Manoj Tiwary
Lokesh Rahul(w), Chris Gayle, Mayank Agarwal, Karun Nair, Aaron Finch, Manoj Tiwary, Ravichandran Ashwin(c), Andrew Tye, Barinder Sran, Ankit Rajpoot, Mujeeb Ur Rahman
