Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) are set to hosts Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in must-win match 46 of IPL 2016 at Mohali on Sunday. Catch all the live updates of the match on CricketCountry along with ball-by-ball updates. KXIP have recently started faring well after Murali Vijay took over as captain. They nearly beat Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), falling short by just 1 run, but followed it up with a victory over Mumbai Indians (MI). KXIP still hold the chance to stay alive in this league. On the other hand, SRH are a win away from securing a spot in the playoffs, and they will not want to waste any time in reaching the landmark.

SRH have been excellent this season, with the pace trio of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ashish Nehra, and especially Mustafizur Rahman performing admirably. David Warner and Shikhar Dhawan have led the way with the bat, while the all-rounders Yuvraj Singh and Moises Henriques have performed their roles with distinction. Meanwhile, KXIP too have headaches. While Sandeep Sharma and Mohit Sharma have been excellent, Akshar Patel has looked a bit inconsistent. Marcus Stoinis destroyed Mumbai Indians (MI) with a spell of 4 for 15, but his bowling has not been bankable for the most part. Hashim Amla has had 3 lean outings, while both David Miller and Glenn Maxwell have been a far cry from their usual selves. Miller’s stint as captain did nothing to improve his performances.

SRH ought to win the match easily given current form, but the match is not likely to be as straightforward as some of the other contests. KXIP have everything on the line; a win here will keep them in with a chance, while a win for SRH will take them to the playoffs.
