Sunrisers Hyderabad: David Warner (Captain), Johnny Bairstow, Manish Pandey, Vijay Shankar, Priyam Garg, Abdul Samad, Jason Holder, Rashid Khan, Sandeep Sharma, T Natarajan, Khalil Ahmed
Kings XI Punjab: KL Rahul (C / W), Chris Gayle, Nicholas Puran, Mandeep Singh, Glenn Maxwell, Deepak Hooda, Murugan Ashwin, Chris Jordan, Ravi Bishnoi, Mohammed Shami, Arshadip Singh
Such is the situation of both teams
The position of Kings XI and Sunrisers is the same. To ensure a place in the playoffs, these two teams will have to win the rest of their matches. The tournament did not start well for Kings XI but he has performed brilliantly in the last three matches since Chris Gayle was included in the playing XI and has now become a dangerous team.
The Sunrisers will also have to win the remaining four matches to reach the playoffs. A win against Rajasthan Royals after three consecutive defeats would have boosted the morale of the team. A good news for the Sunrisers is the middle order getting into rhythm. It now appears to be a balanced team, where everyone is seen playing their role well.
