Final Thoughts

 

Kings XI have won both their home games. Their only loss till now has come in an away game. With Gayle looking to be back in form and KL Rahul hitting cleanly, they are getting dream starts. Their problem lies with the middle order. Useless Yuvraj and Form out Finch are drastically pulling them short of 20-30 runs from their final score.

Sunrisers are yet to taste defeat. But they have never lost a toss yet, which had given them the extra advantage of utilizing the conditions. Their bowling has been their most potent weapon. Their lower order is their weakness. But their opponents haven’t managed to take out their top order early yet.

As a ground which heavily supports chasing scores, toss winners will have good advantage.

CricBuzz Preview

Right after denying a determined Chennai Super Kings despite a special effort from MS Dhoni, King XI Punjab next face a big challenge in the form of Sunrisers Hyderabad, who are yet to taste defeat in IPL 2018. The strong batting order of the Kings XI side will be put to test against Hyderabad’s “outstanding bowling attack”, as termed by captain Kane Williamson, which has already accounted for 25 wickets in the three matches so far.

Apart from the wickets which have helped SRH’s cause, the bowling attack has also been very frugal, with Billy Stanlake’s economy rate of 7.66 being the highest for the team so far. They’re also spoilt for choice as far as variety is concerned, that makes them a very difficult opposition.

Thursday’s game will be further enhanced by the fact that KXIP specialise in the exact opposite end of the line-up. KL Rahul has made a fantastic start to the tournament, and the likes of Karun Nair, Mayank Agarwal and even Chris Gayle, have come good so far. KXIP’s batting – despite the failures of Aaron Finch and Yuvraj Singh – looks capable of answering the questions that will be posed by the SRH attack, provided they capitalise on the starts they make with the bat.

KXIP’s bowlers too will have their work cut out against an impressive SRH batting order. In his first three games as captain, R Ashwin has handled his bowling resources well. They managed to keep Daredevils in check and they also fought well against RCB in a defeat. The CSK game got very close and could’ve gone either way, but KXIP displayed calmness despite the bowlers going for runs. Be it the wicket of Sam Billings, where he showed exceptional judgement in calling for the DRS, the way he has used Afghanistan sensation Mujeeb Ur Rahman or the use of his pace options, Ashwin has been in top gear as far as his captaincy is concerned.

SRH have batting concerns of their own. The likes of Wriddhiman Saha and Manish Pandey are yet to repay the franchise’s faith [and big investments] in them. Their victory over Rajasthan Royals was fairly straightforward, but they were made to toil against Mumbai Indians, before sealing a one-ball win in a modest chase. There were nervous moments with the bat during their win over KKR too.

When: Thursday, April 19 at 8:00 PM IST

Where: Punjab Cricket Association Stadium, Mohali

What to expect: The pitch that was laid out for their previous match had a lot of runs in it. It was pretty much a 200-plus wicket although that total wasn’t achieved. Another batting-friendly track is on the cards for the next game. A high of 31 degree Celsius is expected around the match start time.

Team News:

Kings XI Punjab: Axar Patel, who missed the game against CSK, confirmed that he has a left thigh strain. He expressed hope that he can be back in contention after a couple of matches. Aaron Finch’s golden ducks in the last two matches notwithstanding, he’s likely to get another run. There is also a case for Manoj Tiwary to be brought in to replace Yuvraj Singh, who has looked off colour.

Probable XI: KL Rahul, Chris Gayle, Mayank Agarwal, Aaron Finch, Yuvraj Singh/Manoj Tiwary, Karun Nair, Ravichandran Ashwin (c), Andrew Tye, Barinder Sran, Mohit Sharma, Mujeeb Ur Rahman.

Sunrisers Hyderabad: The visiting side are unlikely to tinker with their combination that has given them three wins. Sandeep Sharma only got a game against Mumbai Indians due to an injury to Bhuvneshar Kumar. However, once the lead pacer was fit, Sandeep had to make way despite a good showing. SRH are likely to remain unchanged for the game.

Probable XI: Wriddhiman Saha, Shikhar Dhawan, Kane Williamson (c), Manish Pandey, Shakib Al Hasan, Deepak Hooda, Yusuf Pathan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Rashid Khan, Siddarth Kaul, Billy Stanlake.

Interesting face-offs:

– The two teams against whom Gayle averages less than 25 in the IPL are both based out of Hyderabad – 24.44 vs SRH and 16.75 vs DC.

– Gayle vs SRH: Nine innings, 220 runs, Avg 24.44, SR 151.72, One X 50

– Sandeep Sharma has dismissed Gayle four times in 49 balls conceding 55 runs. Only Ashwin has dismissed Gayle as often in IPL.

– Mohit vs Dhawan: Mohit has accounted for the southpaw thrice in 55 balls, while conceding 62 runs.

Venue trends:

– SRH have won all their four games against KXIP in Mohali. The last six head-to-head encounters all went to SRH.

– The average score for teams batting first in the last ten IPL matches in Mohali is 174, with a win-loss record of 4-6.

What they said:

“I am very comfortable in the way everyone is playing and preparing at this moment. Everyone will get their opportunity to step up and play a significant role in helping us get over the line. So I think its great we have different people showing their hand game to game and contributing to the success of the side. It can be dangerous having just one or two players controlling your destiny and I would like to think that we not only have the playing XI that is playing but first three games we have a squad which can control our destiny this year – Tom Moody, the SRH head coach, isn’t concerned about the batting performances in the last two games.

“We’ve said this before the tournament started, that that’s the kind of cricket we want to play, we want to be very aggressive. Sometimes, like Bangalore, it may not come off but it’s okay, we’ll still keep going there and try to get boundaries and sixes. That was the plan and everybody was clear. Not everyday that all seven or six batsmen are going to come off – if everyone does then we might even get 260-270, but that’s not going to happen. We’re very happy with the batting, it’s still early in the tournament, we’ll learn from our mistakes and we’ll see how we can keep improving.” – KL Rahul on KXIP’s batting modus operandi.

Big picture

Sunrisers have won everything this season – three tosses, three matches and all the crucial moments in the interim. Their style of attack is consistent with everything head coach Tom Moody has put in place since he took over: the bowlers continue to hold teams to under 150 and the batsmen, perfectly set up to chase that kind of a middling score, are delivering. In fact, in one instance, even Billy Stanlake delivered with bat. Their last game was a clinical brushing aside of Kolkata Knight Riders in what was their first win at Eden Gardens.

They have no such problems with their record in Mohali, where they’ve beaten Kings XI Punjab four times out of four. In fact, the home team itself has a rather average record there, winning only 24 out of 48 games. But they’ve won both games there this season and will be keen to finish off in style before shifting base to Indore.

It has been a bright start for R Ashwin as captain. They’ve found a way to fit in Chris Gayle – and he starred in a close win against Chennai Super Kings – the top order is as boisterous as they can be and they’ve used spin well to paper over a seam attack that hasn’t made its mark yet. A win against Sunrisers will put them level with them, and keep them close to the top of the table as a clear divide between teams starts to emerge ahead of the halfway mark.

The likely XIs

Kings XI Punjab: 1 KL Rahul (wk), 2 Chris Gayle, 3 Mayank Agarwal, 4 Yuvraj Singh, 5 Aaron Finch/Marcus Stoinis, 6 Karun Nair, 7 Axar Patel/Barinder Sran, 8 R Ashwin (capt), 9 Andrew Tye, 10 Mujeeb Ur Rahman, 11 Mohit Sharma

Sunrisers Hyderabad: 1 Wriddhiman Saha (wk), 2 Shikhar Dhawan, 3 Kane Williamson (capt), 4 Manish Pandey, 5 Deepak Hooda, 6 Yusuf Pathan, 7 Shakib Al Hasan 8 Rashid Khan, 9 Bhuvneshwar Kumar 10 Billy Stanlake, 11 Siddarth Kaul

Strategy punt

Kings XI could leave out Aaron Finch for this game. The Australian batsman has made first-ball ducks in both games he has played so far, and with an out-of-touch Yuvraj Singh in the middle already, they will want more heft there. Marcus Stoinis could come back to the squad, seeing as they were forced to use Yuvraj as the sixth bowling option in the match. Left-arm spinner Axar Patel is likely to come back into the XI to exploit the Sunrisers’ weakness against spin.

Stats that matter

  • Since the start of IPL 2015, Yuvraj has been dismissed 12 times by spinners in 28 innings and scores at a rate of 101.8 against them. Against pace, his strike-rate is 142.8
  • Shakib Al Hasan needs one wicket to complete 300 in all T20s. Only Shahid Afridi (300), Sunil Narine (324), Lasith Malinga (348) and Dwayne Bravo (414) have more wickets in the format
  • Manish Pandey has only managed 23 runs against Axar Patel off 39 balls faced in seven innings, with a strike rate of 59 and a dot-ball percentage of 51.3 in all T20s
  • In all T20s since the start of 2017, Rashid Khan has taken 99 wickets in 69 matches. In 30 of those matches, he has taken more than two wickets in a match, to go with his economy rate of 5.60 during that period

Fantasy picks

  • Shakib Al Hasan has quickly emerged as Sunrisers’ leader in the middle overs, whether they’re batting or bowling. And he is in form with both bat and ball – a definite value pick to get you points in both innings.
