SRH’s victory against Delhi Daredevils (DD) in Raipur on Saturday not only improved their campaign, but also encouraged them to play better in the remaining  three matches of the tournament, after having begun on an average note struggling in the lower half of the table. They have collected 12 points from 11 matches so far. Live Scorecard: Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Kings XI Punjab

On the other hand, KXIP, has failed to play to its potential this year after reaching the final last year. But they will look to play for pride and bow out of the competition by winning their remaining three matches. They are languishing at the bottom of the points table having won just two matches and four points in the tournament. The Punjab side, the runners-up in last year’s tournament, has not been able to play to its full potential despite having big names like Glenn Maxwell and Mitchell Johnson.
