Toss: Kings XI Punjab have won the toss and they have decided to bat first.

Hyderabad (Playing XI): Akshath Reddy, Quinton de Kock(w), Hanuma Vihari, Biplab Samantray, Cameron White(c), Thisara Perera, Karan Sharma, Ashish Reddy, Dale Steyn, Amit Mishra, Ishant Sharma

Punjab (Playing XI): Adam Gilchrist(w/c), Paul Valthaty, Mandeep Singh, Manan Vohra, Azhar Mahmood, David Hussey, Dimitri Mascarenhas, Piyush Chawla, Praveen Kumar, Manpreet Gony, Gurkeerat Singh


Sunrisers, who have won four and lost two matches in the tournament so far, have banked on their formidable bowling line up. The likes of Dale Steyn and Amit Mishra have been in the best of form. However, batting has been a huge let down in the tournament for the team. Kumar Sangakkara especially has been a huge disappointment and Cameron White has performed but consistency has been lacking in his performance. With Shikhar Dhawan still out of the reckoning due to a finger injury a lot will depend on Cameron White, Parthiv Patel and Thisara Perera to fire with the bat.

Kings XI Punjab, who have won two and lost two matches, will be high on confidence after their victory over Kolkata Knight Riders in their last match. With Gilchrist not in the best of form, Kings XI`s batting mainly revolves around David Hussey, Mandeep Singh, Manan Vohra, David Miller and Gurkeerat Singh. Bowling wise Praveen Kumar has been in decent form and has been ably supported by Azhar Mahmood, Piyush Chawla and Parvinder Awana.
