So, both the teams will be keen to get back to winning ways. While Punjab will be aiming for top-spot in the IPl 7 Points Table, Hyderabad will be seeking fourth position.

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.

Virender Sehwag turned back the clock against KKR with a blistering 74-run knock. His form bodes very well indeed for Punjab, as they now have three key batsmen in top form who can control things at the top, during the middle overs, and especially at the death. David Miller will be looking to convert his starts and go on to get a few big runs.
