Sunrisers Hyderabad are the only team to be undefeated in the 11th edition of the IPL as they won all the three games they played so far. Kings XI Punjab, on the other hand, won both their games at home but lost the away game against RCB. Punjab relies on the top orders’ exploits while SRH’s wins have come with the help of their bowling attack’s performances. The Kings will need to sort out their middle order to have a chance against SRH whom they have not defeated in the last three seasons.
