The 43rd match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 will be played between Kings XI Punjab and SunRisers Hyderabad on Sunday at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
While Punjab will be looking for their fourth consecutive win, SunRisers Hyderabad, at the same time, excited by the big win in the last match, will try to maintain the same momentum against Kings XI Punjab.
Both these teams have eight points in 10 matches but Hyderabad is ranked fifth in the points table, one place ahead of their rivals due to their better run rate. To ensure a place in the playoffs, these two teams will have to win the rest of their matches.
The tournament did not start well for Kings XI but they have performed brilliantly in the last three matches as they defeated Delhi Capitals, Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore.
As long as their batting order is concerned, captain Rahul, Mayank Agarwal, Chris Gayle and Nicholas Puran are doing well but Glenn Maxwell’s form is still a matter of concern for the team. With the arrival of Jimmy Neesham, the batting of the team and the bowling led by Mohammed Shami also got some strength.
Talking about SunRisers Hyderabad, their win by eight wickets against Rajasthan Royals on Thursday after three consecutive defeats have boosted the morale of the team.
Despite the failure of Warner and Jonny Bairstow, the team managed to reach the target of 155 with the help of half-centuries from Manish Pandey and Vijay Shankar. David Warner’s team will leave no stone unturned to keep the playoff hopes alive.
On the other hand, the inclusion of Jason Holder has strengthened SunRisers bowling. The West Indies all-rounder took three wickets for 33 against the Royals.

The pitch here gets slower as the game progresses. The chasing team hasn’t won the majority of the games here. The slightly bigger boundary on one side of the ground has played into the bowlers’ hands, with strike rotation being key at this venue. Both the teams, Kings XI Punjab and SunRisers Hyderabad would be aiming to bat first on this pitch.
The temperature will be around 29 to 30 degrees Celsius at the beginning of the game and might fall to about 28 degrees Celsius as the evening progresses. The humidity levels will also rise during the night
