KXIP lost the match from a comfortable position.

The 25th match of the IPL 2018 concluded with Sunrisers Hyderabad emerging victorious against Kings XI Punjab by 13 runs.

SRH struggled to score against KXIP's bowling line-up and managed to put just 132 runs on the board.

However, their bowlers did remarkably well and restricted KXIP to 119 runs. It was KXIP's second loss of the season and they moved down to the third place on the points table.

Let us look at the three main things that went wrong for KXIP in their loss against SRH.


#3 Lack of experience

Enter
KXIP batting unit lacks composure against SRH.

Most of the KXIP batsmen are not regulars in their national teams and their lack of experience was clear in the game against SRH.

KXIP were in a comfortable situation after a good start from their openers, and they just needed to show a bit of composure during the middle overs.

But their batsmen looked in a hurry to finish the match and none of them tried to build a decent partnership in the middle overs. Due to this, they kept losing wickets and eventually lost the match from a winning position.

KXIP got all the elements to clinch their maiden IPL title this season but they need to keep their composure during difficult situations.
