Still awestruck by the scintillating chase yesterday, we move on to the 25th game of this season where SRH and KXIP lock horns to ease their stay at the top-four. Who would have thought that a team without their star seamer could defend 118 against a strong batting line-up at Wankhede? Well, last game would have been a massive confidence booster for Hyderabad and they certainly need more of that as they are set to face Punjab who convincingly defeated the hosts by 15 runs in the reverse fixture.
Rajiv Gandhi stadium has been one of those few stadiums which has provided some support to the bowlers this season.
The average first innings score in last 3 games is 151.
Kane Williamson has been lucky with the toss here as he has won all three tosses this season and decided to field first on all three occasions.
Chris Gayle (worthy risk for dream11 users)
Bhuvneshwar Kumar (risky for dream11 users)
This is going to be one tough game for fantasy users because of so many uncertainties regarding the line-ups and inconsistent performers.
KXIP have preferred to stay silent regarding the availability of Gayle for today’s clash. It is understood that Gayle hasn’t featured in the optional training session yesterday. Our answer is that adding Gayle to your line-up could be useful but it is completely up to you if you want to be more adventurous to select him as your captain considering the ‘Unpredictable Skipper’ Ravi Ashwin.
The young Afghanistan spinner was taken to cleaners last time when these two teams met, courtesy – Gayle Storm. But, he produced a good comeback performance against MI, conceding only 11 runs in his 4 overs.
Rashid Khan has hopefully learnt well from his mistakes and would likely look to trouble the in-form KXIP batsmen today.
