Once again a poor bowling and fielding performance has let Kings XI down. 190 was par on this pitch with even pace and bounce but they allowed SRH to get away. Had they restricted SRH to 190 it would have been game on, alas their bowling is a glaring weakness and one that doesn't look like going away anytime soon. Guptill started with a bang before being deceived by a Bhuvi slower ball and Marsh was fantastic, the only real shining light for the Kings. So once again back to the drawing board for the Punjab side, they need to find a solution to their bowling woes, and quickly.

Glenn Maxwell on KXIP's loss: We didn't execute our plans well especially with the ball. If you ball both sides of the wicket, then good players  are going to punish you. We also lost too many wickets at the start. You need to have wickets in hand in the last ten overs. We will now get back to our basics for the next game

SRH captain David Warner (L) and KXIP captain Glenn Maxwell

The David Warner-led Hyderabad have won four of eight games so far and have shared the points in a rain-abandoned outing against Royal Challengers Bangalore on Tuesday.

In their home match against Punjab this season, Hyderabad secured a five-run win while defending a modest total of 159 runs.

Hyderabad will once again hope their openers Warner (235 from 7 games) and Shikhar Dhawan (282 from 7 games) score the bulk of runs while the middle order comprising Moises Henriques, Yuvraj Singh, Naman Ojha, Deepak Hooda play the long handle when the situation demands.

The visitors have an equally potent bowling attack, with Purple Cap holder medium pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar (16 wickets) and young Afghanistan leg-spinner Rashid Khan (10 wickets) leading the department.

On the other hand, Kings XI Punjab will be hoping for another sublime score from opener Hashim Amla, who can take the attack to the opposition camp.

KXIP scored a near-200 total (198) against the Mumbai Indians with Amla scoring a terrific hundred and skipper Glenn Maxwell also hitting some lusty blows. In the middle order, David Miller, Wriddhiman Saha, Shaun Marsh and all-rounder Axar Patel can smash the bowlers all around the park.

The hosts will, however, need to rethink on their bowling strategy with the likes of medium pacers Sandeep Sharma and Mohit Sharma failing to provide the early breakthroughs although Axar, with his left-arm spin has been economical in the middle overs.

Squads:

Sunrisers Hyderabad: David Warner (Captain), Tanmay Agarwal, Ricky Bhui, Bipul Sharma, Ben Cutting, Shikhar Dhawan, Eklavya Dwivedi, Moises Henriques, Deepak Hooda, Chris Jordan, Siddharth Kaul, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ben Laughlin, Abhimanyu Mithun, Mohammad Nabi, Mohammed Siraj, Mustafizur Rahman, Ashish Nehra, Naman Ojha (WK), Rashid Khan, Vijay Shankar, Barinder Sran, Pravin Tambe, Kane Williamson, Yuvraj Singh.

Kings XI Punjab: Glenn Maxwell (Captain), David Miller, Manan Vohra, Hashim Amla, Shaun Marsh, Armaan Jaffer, Martin Guptill, Eoin Morgan, Rinku Singh, Sandeep Sharma, Arman Jaffer, Anureet Singh, Mohit Sharma, K.C. Cariappa, Pradeep Sahu, Swapnil Singh, T Natrajan, Matt Henry, Varun Aaron, Axar Patel, Marcus Stoinis, Gurkeerat Mann, Rahul Tewatia, Darren Sammy, Wriddhiman Saha (WK), Nikhil Naik, Ishant Sharma.
