The Indian Premier League (IPL) now heads to Mohali where Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) face Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the PCA Stadium.
Both Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kings XI Punjab have garnered six points after three wins from five games but the Hyderabad outfit is placed second in the eight-team standings on account of a better run rate.
The Weather Channel forecasts temperature to range from 24 to 27°C during the match hours.
Cloudy skies will preside over the Mohali encounter on Monday, but the possibility of rain remains minimal.
Kings XI Punjab has a brilliant top order, they have a well-rounded bowling attack and they have an astute captain and yet, they are in the mid-table muddle.
They win thrillers and then concede matches which they dominate for a major period, perhaps it is time for Ashwin to look at players who will not blink in pressure scenarios.
KL Rahul and Sarfaraz Khan were the only batsmen who got going in KXIP’s last match against CSK. All the other batters failed to even reach the double figures as they lost the match by 22 runs.
They sit on six points – with 3 wins and 2 losses and now is the time for them to surge. When they walk out in their home bastion against the Sunrisers Hyderabad, Ashwin would want his side to start winning games and find momentum during this phase of the tournament.
