7 PM IST: Sunrisers Hyderabad won the toss and opted to field
Speaking at the toss, SRH skipper Kane Williamson said: “We gonna have a bowl, chances of dew coming in later on and it’s a small ground. We will try to restrict them to a low score. it’s about staying tight together and making small adjustments. It’s important to keep coming up with that energy and at times it’s easy to reflect on past performances where we have done better but we need to play with that freedom. We are playing the same team.”
Punjab Kings (PBKS) captain KL Rahul said: “I was unsure of what to do. That game (last) it can either deflate you or make you go fearless. Everyone is keen to get out there and turn this around. We have three changes. Fabien Allen, Porel and Adil Rashid are out. Ellis, Gayle and Ravi Bishnoi are back in the team. When you are at the bottom of the table, you are still trying to figure out what your best eleven is. With Chris it gives me and Mayank a lot of breathing space at the top. Chris has always delivered for us and hope he can do that again for us today.”

The perennial under-achievers of IPL, Punjab Kings have fallen to the 7th spot in the IPL points table after defeating RR. KL Rahul side struggled in PHASE 1 and could muster only 3 victories of 8 matches and now defeat at the hands of RR has left them in a very difficult situation. Any more slip-ups defeats in the tournament will shut their chances to qualify for the playoff.
SRH is the bottom-placed side in the IPL Points table with only 1 win in 8 games. They are almost out of the IPL Playoff Race – If they have to qualify they will have to do a complete reversal i.e 6 victories of 6 matches & also will have to hope that the other results should go in their favour. They are now left to face Punjab Kings (PBKS), Rajasthan Royals (RR), Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), Mumbai Indians (MI) Chennai Super Kings (CSK), and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR).
