SRH vs KXIP Dream11 Prediction & Dotball Picks, Fantasy Cricket Tips & Playing XI Updates for Today's IPL Match - April 29th, 2019
As the IPL enters into that phase of the season where each and every match bares the importance of more than just the two points on offer in the IPL Points Table, two teams SRH and KXIP with five wins apiece look to boost their chances of qualification as they face each other in Hyderabad on Monday.
In the previous SRH vs KXIP clash, KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal paved the way for a brilliant win at home and would be hopeful of more of the same as they look to bounce back into winning ways as soon as possible. SRH on the other hand, return back to Hyderabad after two losses on the road as they seek two precious points to dictate their playoff aspirations rather than banking on other results.

Playing XI Updates
After two back to back losses, SRH might be pondering a few changes keeping in mind the threat KXIP carries around in the likes of Chris Gayle and KL Rahul. Siddarth Kaul should keep his place after an off day on Saturday while Shakib Al Hasan could make way for Mohammad Nabi. Kane Williamson is due for a big innings and will be expected to fire alongside David Warner, who has been in brilliant form this season.
Possible XI: Warner, Williamson (C), Pandey, Saha(WK), Shankar, Hooda, Shakib/Nabi, Rashid, Bhuvneshwar, Kaul and Khaleel.
Kings XI Punjab
With Nicolas Pooran doing well in the previous game, he should keep his place in the side while Mujeeb ur Rahman could be back for KXIP for this crucial match. This could force a couple of changes with David Miller looking out of sorts in Bangalore while Ankit Rajpoot could also face the axe. The onus will be on opening duo, Gayle and Rahul to lead them to a crucial win against a dominant SRH bowling unit.
Possible XI: Gayle, Rahul, Agarwal, Nair/Miller, Mandeep, Pooran, Ashwin(C), Viljoen, Murugan, Shami and Mujeeb/Rajpoot.

Fantasy Tips and Suggestions
Wicket-keeper: Wriddhiman Saha played in his first game of the season on Saturday although he couldn't make much of an impact. Although Pooran isn't a bad option, Saha's experience makes him an attractive proposition to have in your fantasy team.
Batsmen: Chris Gayle and KL Rahul are must-haves in the team alongside the Orange Cap holder, David Warner. With Manish Pandey scoring back to back fifties for SRH, he is also a good option to have in the side with the likes of Mayank Agarwal and Kane Williamson also on offer
All-rounders: Ravi Ashwin and Vijay Shankar are the preferred players with both of them impressing over the course of the season although more is expected of Shankar after his inclusion in the Indian World Cup squad.
Bowlers: Rashid Khan and Bhuvneshwar Kumar are valuable assets in the fantasy team while Mohammed Shami's form makes him a must-have in the side. The likes of Mujeeb ur Rahman, Murugan Ashwin and Khaleel Ahmed are also in the running for a spot in the team.
Captain: David Warner and KL Rahul are the obvious choices for captaincy with their ominous form going in for the selection. Alongside them, Rashid Khan is also a viable option with his all-round abilities coming to the fore earlier in the season.
