Mohali: Kings XI Punjab will be hosting Sunrisers Hyderabad in what would be a clash between two in-form teams at the Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium at Mohali on Thursday.

The contest is being billed as one between Kings XI Punjab's batting and Sunrisers Hyderabad's bowling.

While Punjab have registered two wins in three matches so far, Hyderabad have won three games in a row, as both the teams registered crucial wins at the beginning of the tournament.

The match pits a home side that has a lot of batting firepower against a Hyderabad side that is very balanced and their bowling line-up is one of the best in the tournament. SRH's bowlers have restricted their opponents in three matches within the 150-run mark.

Punjab's top-order batsmen KL Rahul, Karun Nair — both from Karnataka — have delivered in the first three matches.

One thing that will please the northern outfit is the return to form of West Indian marauder Chris Gayle, who blasted 63 off 33 deliveries during their four-run win over Chennai Super Kings in their last match.

However, Punjab will want another veteran, Yuvraj Singh, and Mayank Aggarwal to also be among the runs as the home batsmen will require to be on top of their game against the Hyderabad bowlers.

SRH's Afghan leg-spinner Rashid Khan has been on the top of his game, bowling 18 dot balls against Mumbai Indians. Besides Rashid, the likes of Billy Stanlake, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Shakib Al Hasan, Sandeep Sharma and Siddharth Kaul provide a lot of options.

Bhuvneshwar did not play against MI due to back pain, but came back strongly to pick up three wickets for 26 runs against KKR, which must have relieved the Kane Williamson-led side.

Also, one cannot underestimate SRH's batting might. All three of Hyderabad's wins have come while chasing.

KXIP captain Ravichandran Ashwin will hope bowlers like Andrew Tye, Mohit Sharma and Barinder Sran can restrict the Hyderabad line-up.
