IPL 2018 KXIP vs SRH in Mohali: Kings XI Punjab continued their winning run as they beat Sunrisers Hyderabad by 15 runs in Mohali. Chasing 191 runs in 20 overs, SRH lost Shikhar Dhawan early as he was retired hurt in the first over. Kane Williamson who came in at number three played some good strokes but his efforts were never enough to take his team over the line. Manish Pandey too chipped in with a half-century but it went in vain. Earlier, Chris Gayle hammered SRH bowlers all around the park and notched up his 6th IPL hundred and first in the season.
Kings XI Punjab take on Sunrisers Hyderabad at home. Both the sides are coming into this game with a win under their belt in their respective last matches. KL Rahul has been in brilliant touch with the bat in this season while Chris Gayle who played his first match against Chennai Super Kings too showed his class after notching up 33-ball 63 that included 4 maximums. Apart from these two, KXIP also have Myanak Agarwal who has got the starts but hasn't converted them to big totals. Yuvraj Singh hasn't come up with something big so far in the tournament and the Mohali crowd might get to see vintage Yuvraj if he settles in early. The Punjab franchise would expect him to get going in the clash against SRH. Sunrisers Hyderabad have a strong batting line up with Wriddhiman Saha, Kane Williamson, Shikhar Dhawan, Manish Pandey, Shakib Al Hasan, Deepak Hooda and Yusuf Pathan in the list. Dhawan has been a consistent performer for SRH and his side would rely on him to get a positive start.
