KXIP, SRH look to get back to winning ways

Going into the weekend high on confidence, both Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) lost their respective games in the Indian Premier League (IPL) on Saturday and come Monday, they will look to get back to winning ways when both teams clash at the I.S. Bindra Stadium in Mohali.

While KXIP have had a mixed journey so far in the tournament, winning three games and losing two, SRH were looking on a roll after the loss in their first game in Kolkata before Mumbai Indians (MI) pacer Alzarri Jospeh halted them in their own home ground on Saturday.

Picking six wickets in his debut game, not only did he take MI to a convincing win, but also exposed the weakness in the middle-order of the SRH batting and that is something that KXIP skipper R. Ashwin will have taken note of as his team prepares to welcome SRH to their den on Mohali.

For KXIP, it is a combination of failure in the pace bowling department as well as the lack of form of the middle-order that needs to be worked on and quickly. While Sam Curran and Mohammed Shami were brilliant in the game against the Delhi Capitals, they looked completely off colour in the last game against Chennai. In the batting department also, apart from KL Rahul and Sarfaraz Khan, the other batsmen have flattered to deceive.

KXIP vs SRH: Dream 11 Team Top 6 picks

Both the teams have some serious firepower on the batting and bowling sides. Picking the top three players from the teams can get confusing and that’s why, we’ve got a few picks for you.

The home team, KXIP, has a lot of batting fire power and you should definitely opt for two of their batsmen, namely- Chris Gayle, and Lokesh Rahul, both of whom have led their team to victory on more than one count. They have performed well over the past few games and we expect big things from them this time too. From the bowling side, pick captain of the team, Ravichandran Ashwin, who is a leading wicket taker.

From the Hyderabadi team, picking two bowlers and one batsman would be a great strategy. Their bowling side is currently performing quite well and have the ability to change the outcome of the match at any time. The batsmen too are high run scorers who have led their team to victory on more than one count. Skipper Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Nabi and David Warner have great potential and will give the other team a run for their money.

Our top 6 picks are: Chris Gayle, Lokesh Rahul and Ravichandran Ashwin from the home team, while picking Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Nabi and David Warner from SRH would be a great idea.
