Hyderabad: May 10, 2013

The Sunrisers Hyderabad will look to get back to winning ways when they travel to Mohali to face Adam Gilchrist‘s Kings XI Punjab.

The Hyderabad side’s unbeaten run at home was thwarted by the Chennai Super Kings. They triumphed in multiple low-scoring encounters but failed as a unit against the mighty Chennai side in their previous fixture. As for Punjab, they still would fancy an outside chance of making it to the playoffs and need wins from all their remaining fixture to achieve that. With a home game against Hyderabad, they will hope to register a win.

Both sides have faltered at the wrong time and find themselves in a tight position as they chase a top four spot. Among the two, the home side is in a better position with 14 points from 12 games while Kings XI Punjab have 10 from 12 matches. With the Chennai Super Kings guaranteed a top four spot, Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals also in a commanding position to finish at the top, the race is between the Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore and the Sunrisers Hyderabad (both are on same points) with Kings XI Punjab with an outside chance of leapfrogging both these teams.

Bangalore’s remaining fixtures are relatively easy which adds to the pressure on the Sunrsiers. A victory over Kings XI Punjab could help them regain momentum. Punjab, on the other hand, will look to win and hope that Bangalore falter.
