==============================================================

TOSS: Kings XI Punjab won the toss and George Bailey decided to bowl first. No change in Hyderabad team, whereas, Manan Vohra is playing his first game for Punjab in this season.

After being outplayed by Mumbai Indians in their previous match, Sunrisers Hyderabad face another tough battle when they take on robust Kings XI Punjab at the Rajiv Gandhi International cricket stadium in an IPL match within few minutes from now, in the first encounter of the day.

The Kings XI Punjab have had a rampaging campaign in this edition of the IPL before the Kolkata Knight Riders got the better of them in a match on May 11 at Cuttack.

Having suffered a sudden setback, the Punjab side would be keen to come all guns blazing against the Sunrisers Hyderabad, who cannot afford to lose any more matches in order to stay in contention for a place in the semi-finals.

Punjab`s star duo of Glenn Maxwell and David Miller have been in scintillating form and the team`s old warhorse Virender Sehwag has also, of late, been reminding about his batting prowess.
