Vivo IPL Live Score, SunRisers Hyderabad vs Kings XI Punjab: Spirited SRH Set For KXIP Test

Vivo IPL SunRisers Hyderabad vs Kings XI Punjab Live Score: A rampant Punjab has won five of its six league games while Hyderabad have managed to carve out four victories from six games.

Kings XI Punjab and Sunrisers Hyderabad will be planning to outsmart each other and continue their winning run when they face-off in an Indian Premier League (IPL) tie at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad on Thursday. An extensive Punjab has won five of its six league games while Hyderabad have handled  to carve out four victories from six games, position third in the league points-table. Punjab openers Lokesh Rahul and Chris Gayle have been a main reason behind their success. While Rahul has collected 236 runs from six games, the Caribbean self-proclaimed "Universe Boss" has amassed 229 runs from just three matches. Gayle, still, missed the previous match against Delhi Daredevils due to fitness matter and his absence was clearly felt in Punjab's opening. If the 38-year-old returns for Thursday's game, it will once more be a threat to the opponent's bowling. Karun Nair has also been inspiring after 173 runs from five innings but veteran Yuvraj Singh, Aaron Finch, and Mayank Agarwal are yet to make their attendance felt in the middle. The trio's poor form could be a cause of worry for the team management, keeping in view Hyderabad's decent bowling hit.

In the bowling responsibility, all-rounder Ravichandran Ashwin, along with Mohit Sharma add depth to the line-up. Also, average pacers Barinder Sran, Andrew Tye and Afghan spinner Mujeeb ur Rahman shoulder the bowling dependability. On the other hand, Sunrisers have their end up after protective a paltry 118 against Mumbai Indians on Tuesday. The Sunrisers' bowlers dished out a superb presentation to trigger a batting collapse of Mumbai and ultimately defend the total by 31 runs at the packed Wankhede Stadium. Previous, the Kane Williamson-led side kicked-off their campaign in an inspiring way with three wins on the trot but later suffered succeeding defeats to Kings XI Punjab and Chennai Super Kings. Williamson has been in excellent touch and has carried the batting on his shoulders. The New Zealand batter has combined 259 runs from six games. However, Shikhar Dhawan and Wridhiman Saha, have not given the necessary support to Hyderabad's batting. Saha has been below par with the bat with just 62 runs while Dhawan has been a bit better with 135 runs from five innings. Yusuf Pathan had publicized glimpses of his old attacking batting against Rajasthan Royals with a quick 27-ball 45 but failed to repeat the show against Mumbai. Hyderabad's power mostly relies on their bowlers, who didn't let Bhuvneshwar Kumar's deficiency be felt in the game against the Rohit Sharma-led side.
