Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Kings XI Punjab Fantasy Cricket Preview

Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Kings XI Punjab

Match 25 of VIVO IPL 2018 will see Kings XI Punjab take on Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Sunrisers Hyderabad will be bustling with confidence after their thrilling win over the Mumbai Indians on Tuesday night. After being dismissed for 118 – at that point the lowest total in the season, SRH still walked away with a resounding win as their bowlers bundled out MI for 87.

Kings XI Punjab meanwhile are on a roll; they have 5 wins out of six and are on a 4-match winning streak. In their most-recent match, they only managed 143, yet walked away with two points from the match after restricting the Delhi Daredevils to 139-8.

The last time these two teams met, SRH were blown away by KXIP’s Chris Gayle. Will SRH be able to return the favour and surge to the top of the standings?
