IPL 9: SRH eye hat-trick of wins vs bottom-placed KXIP today
Hyderabad: Back to their winning ways after successive victories, a rejuvenated Sunrisers Hyderabad will look to continue their good run when they take on laggards Kings XI Punjab at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium today.
SRH skipper David Warner
After losing two games in a row, Hyderabad made a quick turnaround in their fortunes by scoring two stupendous wins in their last two matches — against Mumbai Indians (by 7 wickets) and Gujarat Lions (by 10 wickets) on Thursday.
Despite injuries to its key players, including Yuvraj Singh, Ashish Nehra and Kane Williamson, the Hyderabad side has been on a high with the team clicking collectively during the last two matches.
SRH captain David Warner has been in great form, having made unbeaten 74 against Gujarat on Thursday and 90 not out against Mumbai.
With two points from four matches, Kings XI Punjab, on the other hand, is at the bottom of the points table in the competitive tournament.
The KXIP batting has not been very consistent so far with only Manan Vohra putting up decent scores.
