Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) host the Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) in the 39th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014 in Hyderabad on Wednesday. Hyderabad will be looking to cash in on Punjab’s recent loss to Kolkata Knight Riders by defeating them in this crucial encounter and strengthening their position in the points table.

 

Punjab have had their best IPL so far, while SRH are slowly crawling back to form. This should be a tense encounter as Punjab have the most explosive and in-form batting order, and they face the most lethal bowling attack on paper in the form of Dale Steyn and co.

Hyderabad lost their last game at home, and will be looking to rectify that in this game. There wasn’t much spin on offer, and their leg-spin twins of Amit Mishra and Karn Sharma were unable to get past the duo of Lendl Simmons and Ambati Rayudu, and that really hurt them against Mumbai. On the other hand, Punjab will not mind that one bit, as Glenn Maxwell likes to go against the spin when hitting the ball on the leg side. However, with Bhuvneshwar Kumar bowling the way he is at the moment, Maxwell will do well to see him off rather than attack him right from the get go.
