KXIP vs SRH Dream11 IPL 2020 Prediction, Playing 11
Their campaign back on track with a hat-trick of wins, Kings XI Punjab will take on another resurgent team — Sunrisers Hyderabad — in Dubai, UAE on Saturday in a must-win IPL game for the two well-matched sides. Both KXIP and SRH are on the same pedestal, having garnered eight points apiece after 10 games, but the Hyderabad outfit is a rung ahead in the eight-team standings, on the fifth spot by virtue of a better net run rate. And both teams need to win their remaining four games to guarantee their place in the play-offs. It has been a terrific turnaround, especially for KXIP after a slow start to the tournament.
After the initial hiccups, KXIP got its campaign back on track with three consecutive wins — over mighty Delhi Capitals, Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore and the KL Rahul-led side would be hoping to carry the winning momentum forward to break into top four. While KXIP’s batting is in the safe hands of skipper Rahul, Mayank Agarwal, Chris Gayle and Nicholas Pooran, the shaky form of Glenn Maxwell remains a concern.

SRH too find itself in similar position and needs to win its remaining four matches to seal a play-off berth. The side managed to keep itself in the playoff hunt with a confidence-boosting eight-wicket win over Rajasthan Royals on Thursday night after three consecutive defeats. And the David Warner-led side can’t slip a bit from hereon if it wishes to stay alive in the tournament. The positive for SRH is that despite Warner and Jonny Bairstow departing early in the 155-run chase against RR in their last match, young Manish Pandey (83) and Vijay Shankar (52) rose to the occasion and shared an unbeaten 140-run partnership to secure a comfortable win.

KXIP vs SRH Pitch And Toss Report
With some renowned names in their ranks, Kings XI Punjab and Sunrisers Hyderabad are in for an absolute run-fest in the highly-awaited T20 clash at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. However, the slow wickets and absence of dew has often made life difficult for chasing sides. Teams batting first hold a 12-6 advantage in Dubai. Winning the toss could be a significant advantage. The slightly bigger boundary on one side of the ground has played into the bowlers’ hands, with strike rotation being key at this venue. Apart from trying to utilise the early swing on offer, the bowlers have looked to vary their pace more often towards the back end of the innings.
