Ground News

Except 2013 edition this ground has been typically a high scoring venue. Scores below 155 are very difficult to defend.

Final Thoughts

Winning the toss is a curse at this ground for the home side. Winning the toss gives 7-16 win-loss ratio. Lose the toss and they have a 16-9 win loss. SRH have a very poor record winning the toss and batting 1st (3-10 win-loss). But while losing the toss and chasing they’ve been totally solid (8-1 win-loss). With the way the tournament is progressing and the history of the ground, teams will look to chase if they win the toss.

Preview From Other Sources

CricBuzz Preview

On a supposed 190-wicket at the Wankhede on Tuesday, the Sunrisers Hyderabad mustered a meek 118 against Mumbai Indians. Evidently, Kane Williamson and Co have frailties in the batting department that need refurbishing.

It must be noted though, that despite putting up the lowest score in a full 20-over innings in this edition of the Indian Premier League, Hyderabad pulled off a 31-run victory. And that the defence of the lowly score came in the absence of their premier paceman – Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

Adversity, it seems, brings out the best in Hyderabad and that trait will be put to the test when they take on Kings XI Punjab at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Uppal on Thursday (April 26).

Hyderabad’s stomach for a stiff fight is an obvious outcome of their immaculate auction strategy. Tom Moody, the head coach, did mention in the aftermath that they had gone into the auction with the idea of like-for-like replacements for each player. In Bhuvneshwar’s case, it has been Siddarth Kaul. The paceman has assumed immense responsibility, and with Rashid Khan, the duo ensured Mumbai were beaten in their own backyard after picking up five wickets between them while conceding just 34 runs. The pair of Sandeep Sharma and Basil Thampi, who made his SRH debut, was outstanding, giving away little for their three wickets, showcasing the depth in SRH’s bowling stocks even in the absence of their spearhead.

It was the same Rashid, who returned with 2-11 with a maiden on the night, who was clobbered for 55 runs in his four overs against Kings XI Punjab earlier in the season – the most he has ever conceded in a T20. Chris Gayle smashed him for as many as six sixes as Rashid erred in his lengths, bowling too full. The Jamaican went on to score a century – 42 runs of which came off Rashid’s 16 balls, and SRH, who were undefeated in the tournament at that stage with three wins on the trot, were handed their first defeat.

That loss against Punjab saw them slip down the table to third, while R Ashwin’s men have subsequently grown in stature and shifted themselves to the helm.

Punjab have won four games in succession and have five wins out of six games, but they aren’t looking impenetrable. They have only managed to hold their nerve under trying circumstances, which, it must be said, isn’t the easiest thing to do.

Barring the minor hiccup against Royal Challengers Bangalore, they have been clinical all through under the shrewd leadership of R Ashwin. KL Rahul and Gayle have given them such strong starts that it has eased roles for the middle-order bats. Those sparkling starts have even masked the failures of Aaron Finch and Yuvraj Singh, who have had lean seasons so far. When Gayle was rested in the previous game against Delhi Daredevils due to soreness, Punjab’s batting didn’t stand out, and that’s something Hyderabad will have on their mind. Get the openers out and open up Punjab’s soft underbelly of a middle order.

While the batting is their strong suit, the bowling hasn’t, barring in the game against Delhi, done exceedingly well, conceding a few big scores.

In a sense, Punjab are quite balanced in their dependency on batting and bowling. Hyderabad certainly aren’t. Their bowling has won them pretty much every game so far and they’ll need to do something to shake up that trend. Shikhar Dhawan returned from injury after missing the clash against Chennai Super Kings, but didn’t provide the ideal start against Mumbai and immediately much of the pressure fell on Kane Williamson, who opened the batting for the first time this season. The SRH captain has looked in divine touch, but he cannot possibly lug the weight of the responsibility on his slender shoulders for too long.

Punjab were smart in Mohali to exploit SRH’s batting weakness by having them chase. SRH came close but expectedly fell short. If SRH are to avoid a defeat in the return fixture, they need to address their concerns with the bat and expect their strike bowlers to come good.

The good thing though, is that Rashid has, admittedly, learnt a lesson after the Gayle marauding, and he’s better for it. That perhaps should be a lesson for the team as well.

When: Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Kings XI Punjab, April 26, 20:00 IST

Where: Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad

What to expect: A hot day with temperatures rising to 39 degrees in the day, with Hyderabad coming into its own with the summer.

Team News:

Sunrisers Hyderabad

Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s fitness is a concern for Hyderabad. However, their stock of pacers have shown that they can just as well make the most of the opportunities in his absence as seen in the last game against MI. However, if they opt to beef up their batting, they could go in with Carlos Brathwaite for Mohammad Nabi.

Kings XI Punjab

Punjab had an optional training session on the eve of the game. While most of them turned up, the notable absentees were Gayle, Ashwin and KL Rahul. Gayle, however, is likely to return after having missed out on the last clash due to a stiff back.

Probable XIs:

SRH – Shikhar Dhawan, Kane Williamson (c), Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Manish Pandey, Shakib Al Hasan, Yusuf Pathan, Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan, Basil Thampi/Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Sandeep Sharma, Siddarth Kaul

KXIP – Lokesh Rahul (wk), Chris Gayle, Karun Nair, Mayank Agarwal, Aaron Finch, Yuvraj Singh, Ravichandran Ashwin (c), Andrew Tye, Ankit Rajpoot, Barinder Sran, Mujeeb Ur Rahman

What they said:

“Just like we have been performing in our previous games, we will continue to do so in tomorrow’s game as well. We’ll stick to our plans.” – Ankit Rajpoot, KXIP bowler.

Head to Head of teams

SRH 8 – 3 KXIP

Team Record at that particular venue

SRH 4 – 1 KXIP

Interesting face-offs

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

Gayle vs Bhuvneshwar: Gayle has scored 119 runs from just 82 balls of Bhuvneshwar getting out only once. He has hit eight sixes off these 82 balls from Bhuvneshwar.

Manish Pandey vs Axar: Panday has scored only 23 runs off the 39 balls from Axar getting out twice hitting just a solitary boundary.

Venue trends

KXIP’s only win at this venue came in 2014 when they chased down 206 against SRH.

Since 2015, no team has successfully chased down a 150+ target in IPL matches in Hyderabad.

IPL 2018 trends

KXIP is the best batting team in the Powerplay with a scoring rate of 10.31 while SRH is the only side to concede at less than seven an over with the field up (6.92).

SRH has the lowest run-rate among all sides this season of IPL – 7.85.

CricInfo Preview

Insane bowling. Inept batting. Sunrisers Hyderabad have decided to be that kid in class who knows pi to the 100th decimal, but blanks so badly when asked about something like social media that they file a complaint against the English professor for not teaching them Instagrammar.

Manish Pandey for example, has 88 runs in five innings at a strike-rate of 118. Meanwhile, the man he has kept out of the Indian XI in limited-overs cricket began the IPL with a 14-ball fifty; KL Rahul’s form has gone a long way to ensuring Kings XI are an all-round threat. R Ashwin’s captaincy has been a big plus as well, forcing opposition batsmen to tackle their weaknesses while his own sits pretty atop the sixes chart (ahead of Wednesday’s game).

With Tom Moody at the helm, Sunrisers don’t lack for tactical resources. And Kane Williamson has loads of practice leading a side whose stronger suit is its bowling and which also relies rather heavily on him to score runs (and scoring them is what he has been doing so far this tournament). Things could get pretty funky on Thursday when these two teams meet.

In the news

  • Chris Gayle missed Kings XI’s previous game on Monday with some soreness. Will he be good to go on Thursday?
  • Bhuvneshwar Kumar is also nursing an injury. He was asked to stay back in Hyderabad instead of playing against Mumbai at the Wankhede Stadium on Tuesday so that he has a better chance of recovery.

The likely XIs

Sunrisers Hyderabad: 1 Shikhar Dhawan, 2 Kane Williamson (capt), 3 Wriddhiman Saha (wk), 4 Manish Pandey, 5 Yusuf Pathan, 6 Deepak Hooda, 7 Mohammad Nabi, 8 Rashid Khan, 9 Bhuvneshwar Kumar/Sandeep Sharma, 10 Siddarth Kaul, 11 Basil Thampi

Kings XI Punjab: 1 Chris Gayle/Aaron Finch, 2 KL Rahul (wk), 3 Mayank Agarwal, 4 David Miller/Marcus Stoinis, 5 Karun Nair, 6 Yuvraj Singh/Manoj Tiwary, 7 R Ashwin (capt), 8 Andrew Tye, 9 Barinder Sran, 10 Ankit Rajpoot, 11 Mujeeb ur Rahman

What happened in the previous contest

Rashid was taken apart by Gayle, who scored his sixth IPL century. Correction: a sixth, match-winning IPL century, as Kings XI defended 193 with ease.

Strategy punt

  • Andrew Tye is Kings XI’s premier death bowler, with an economy rate of 7.3. But there may be reason to try him with the new ball: the Australian quick has dismissed Williamson two times in nine balls in T20 cricket, giving away only six runs.
  • In T20s, Sandeep Sharma has dismissed Chris Gayle four times in 47 balls, giving away only 55 runs.

Stats that matter

  • If Williamson can hold Tye off, his team has a good chance of cashing in at the end. All the other Kings XI bowlers combined have an economy rate of 12.1 between overs 16 and 20.
  • Finishing is an area Sunrisers’ batsmen definitely need to improve; as things stand they have the highest dot-ball percentage (40.4) at the death.
  • Rahul needs 39 runs to complete 1000 in the IPL.
  • As of April 23, Kings XI have been burying teams under Smart Runs. As per ESPNcricinfo’s new metrics to make sense of the shortest format, Gayle and Rahul have so far contributed an extra 80 runs to the team’s aggregate.
  • Aaron Finch might not be the best asset against Sunrisers: he’s made only 33 runs in 37 balls against Bhuvneshwar, while being dismissed twice, and 15 runs off eight balls against Rashid Khan, while being dismissed twice.

Fantasy picks

Barring the usual suspects – Gayle, Rahul, Shakib, Rashid and Williamson – keep an eye on Siddarth Kaul. He has bowled 11 overs between 7 and 14 for an economy rate of 6.7, and nine overs between 16 and 20 for an economy rate of 6.8.
