In today's encounter, Sunrisers Hyderabad is set to host Kings XI Punjab in the 48th fixture of the IPL 2019. The hosts will be eyeing a push for the playoffs spot with another with, while Punjab will look to outplay their opponents in front of their home crowd. Both the teams will battle it out for the second time in this tournament.

Kings XI Punjab emerged victorious by six wickets when these two sides met last time.

Sunrisers Hyderabad has one of the most balanced teams in this season. However, after a flourishing start in the campaign, they seemed to lose their mojo. With five wins and six defeats in their eleven outings, SRH is placed precariously at the fourth spot in the points table. David Warner and Jonny Bairstow scored plenty of runs, but the middle order has been vulnerable under pressure.

The hosts will be hoping to avenge their previous loss at Mohali against the same opponent. Kane Williamson & Co. will try to take advantage of the home conditions in this must-win encounter.

Meanwhile, Kings XI Punjab has played some fabulous cricket in the past few weeks. Having started the tournament on a high, Punjab is now struggling to seal their playoffs berth. Currently, they are lying at the sixth spot in the points table with five wins in eleven games.

After losing two games on the trot, the visitors will be determined to register a win in the upcoming match. With match winners like Chris Gayle, KL Rahul, David Miller and R Ashwin in their ranks, Kings XI Punjab has the potential to beat any team on their day.
