    Preview : Match 59 – KXIP vs SRH

    Crucial contest for both teams

    Mumbai 10 May 2013

    Kings XI Punjab and Sunrisers Hyderabad – the two teams who compete in Match 59 of Pepsi IPL 2013 – are both alive in the race for a place in the Pepsi IPL 2013 Play-Offs and need the two points from this match.

    In a season where teams have been very good in their own backyard, both KXIP and SRH lost their previous matches – despite playing at home. Visitors Rajasthan Royals defeated KXIP in their own backyard, while the Chennai Super Kings trounced SRH by 77 runs at Hyderabad.

    The bowling attacks of both teams have done well almost all season and that is one of the prime reasons both teams find themselves still in the race for the Play-Offs. On the batting front though, KXIP definitely hold the edge, given they have a lot of experience and firepower in their ranks.

    The Protagonists

    With the kind of form he has displayed in recent times, David Miller is certainly the one to look forward to in the Kings XI Punjab ranks. Though the left-hander was dismissed for his first single-digit score of the season in the previous match, he has been in sensational form – scoring his runs at a strike-rate of 168.22.
    Adam Gilchrist looked good in his return to the playing XI and that has only strengthened an already formidable batting order.

    SRH do not have too many players who have scored at more than a run-a-ball this season. The two men who have done that – and who have the ability to win matches single-handedly – are Shikhar Dhawan and Thisara Perera. There is a lot riding on Dhawan’s shoulders; given SRH’s combination Dhawan needs to bat long, score runs quickly and get big runs too. Perera will be expected to give the innings impetus towards the end.

    Just the thought of Dale Steyn bowling on a juicy surface, added with the effect of lights, promises a visual treat.

    Previous Meetings

    In the only previous meeting between the Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kings XI Punjab – at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad, it was the hosts who prevailed in a low-scoring match. After restricting the visitors to 123 for nine, the hosts got there in the 19th over, registering a five-wicket win.


    Sunrisers Hyderabad has the least 50-plus partnerships this season – 4.

    Challengers Bangalore on May 14. Sunrisers Hyderabad meanwhile head to Mumbai to take on the Mumbai Indians on May 13.
