In the 22nd match of the IPL 2020, Sunrisers Hyderabad will lock horns with Kings XI Punjab at the Dubai International Stadium.
The Sunrisers are coming back to the ground with three defeats and two wins, while Kings XI have only won once throughout this season. Hyderabad is on the fifth spot, while Punjab is on the eighth spot.
Hyderabad has been inconsistent since the start, as they lost two matches in the beginning, then won two and lost the last one again. In their previous game against Mumbai Indians, Hyderabad not only lost but was also plagued by injuries to their key players like Bhuveneshwar Kumar.
While Punjab had KL Rahul, who made a century against Royal Challengers Bangalore but unable to make big moments after that. Now, fans have high expectations from KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal, Mohammed Shami.
Sunrisers have David Warner and Johnny Bairstow as the most prolific batsmen on the team, though they haven’t clicked yet in this season. As soon as they come in the form, they will be one of the most destructive players.
Rashid Khan has been an outstanding bowler who has been very economical this season. Even Kane Williamson is a key player who they can count on.
Both the teams are too dependent on their key players; each player will have to buckle up to turn a defeat into victory.
