Despite decent performances in the first innings, both Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) failed to back it up in the second dig, eventually losing their weekend matches to Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Mumbai Indians (MI) respectively.

Bruised over the weekend, both KXIP and SRH will have to make a quick turnaround and look to get back to winning ways when they lock horns in the Indian Premier League (IPL 2019) at the Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali on Monday.

Sunrsiers and Kings XI have garnered six points after three wins from five games, but the Hyderabad outfit are placed second due to a better run rate. KXIP, meanwhile, are lying fifth in the points table.

The Ravichandran Ashwin-led side, who won all their four matches last season before they shifted base to Indore, are on track to repeat the same show this edition. They won their previous two matches against MI and Delhi Capitals (DC) and are looking to extend their track record this year. (WATCH: Du Plessis, Dhoni and spinners put CSK back on top)

Punjab lost the plot against CSK on Saturday despite half-centuries from KL Rahuland Sarfaraz Khan while chasing 161 as they were restricted to 138 for five. The Lions were choked for runs by the spinners and with Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi in the Sunrsiers rank, it is going to be another difficult outing for the home team batsmen.

Last year s finalists, Sunrisers were left shell shocked after debutante Alzarri Josephbamboozled the SRH batting line-up with record figures of six for 12 as the hosts chasing a below par 136 lost by 40 runs. While the top order of David Warner and Jonny Bairstow fired, it was their middle order that was in complete disarray. (WATCH: Joseph s dream IPL debut hands Mumbai 40-run win over Sunrisers)
