SRH to take on KXIP in the most exciting 22nd Match of IPL 2020
Vroom! Match 22 already? Dream 11 IPL 2020 seems to have moved in a flash. Many of the encounters till now were absolute thrillers and there have been some unpredicted instances where games changed in a jiffy. Teams that looked close to victory, lost to the teams that were far from winning. The merry ways continued in yesterday’s match when KKR had a convincing victory over CSK and moved to the 3rd position on the points table. Today’s clash between SRH and KXIP starts at 7:30 PM IST in the Dubai International Stadium.
Sunrisers Hyderabad have been inconsistent this season and have lost their previous encounter against Mumbai Indians, while Kings XI Punjab have not had the best games till now as they lost 4 matches. SRH, with 4 points is 6th on the points table and KXIP is at the bottom with 2 points. This match is a chance for both to redeem themselves and they will look to make the best out of it. Now that will be a treat to watch.
In the last match against Mumbai, Sunrisers Hyderabad ended up losing the game, but David Warner, the captain made his maiden half century and might continue the form. Manish Pandey has made 147 runs in the season so far and will need just 10 runs to complete 3000 IPL runs. Jonny Bairstow has a 144-run figure and his ability might impact the match. Both Priyam Garg and Kane Williamson have come in handy when the team needed runs.
The bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar is officially out of IPL because of his injury and his replacement Prithvi Raj Yarra, a young pacer from Andhra Pradesh will have eyes set on him. Rashid Khan, one of the most economical bowlers has held the fort for SRH many times and might pose threat to the likes of Rahul and Mayank in this match.
KXIP lost their last match against CSK but had a good enough score of 178/4. KL Rahul, the highest run scorer (302) as of yet in this season, might do wonders alongside Mayank Agarwal, who has scored 272 runs. Nicholas Pooran had a good tryst in the last match, where he made 33 and might add value to the batting unit.
Although Punjab could not take any wickets in their last match against CSK, they have good bowlers. Mohammed Shami has taken 8 wickets in this season of whom were many key players. Sheldon Cottrell has 6 wickets to his name and Ravi Bishnoi also has 4 key wickets in his bank.
Who will use this match to turn tables and who will continue the losing streak? Only time can tell.
