We are heading into the third week of IPL 2019, which will start with a KXIP vs SRH encounter at Mohali. The hosts will be disappointed after their defeat to CSK in their last match, while Sunrisers Hyderabad will want to make amends for scoring their lowest innings total (96) in history, in their last match against MI.

Both the teams would look to bounce back from their humiliating losses and get back to winning ways.

Kings XI Punjab still look like a weak side on paper, but their ability to surprise their opponents makes them unique. With three wins and a couple of defeats in their five outings, they have started their campaign decently well.

Ravichandran Ashwin and Co. will try to make the most of their home conditions against the Orange Army. They lack an experienced finisher in their lineup apart from David Miller, so they would hope that the top order does a bulk of the scoring.

Meanwhile, after a high-flying campaign in the first four matches, Sunrisers Hyderabad came crashing back to earth in their last outing at home. They lost to Mumbai Indians by 40 runs despite chasing a small target of 136.

With their batting weaknesses being exposed, the visitors will want to make some changes in their starting lineup. Kane Williamson could come back to lead the Orange Army in the upcoming match. SRH still have some amazing match-winners in their ranks though, and remain in contention for the title this year.
