Kings XI Punjab
The SRH vs KXIP game involving these two teams puts together two interesting IPL franchises. SRH vs KXIP is a battle between a team that has won the IPL title before, and now want more in the Sunrisers with a team that has never won the title, finished runners up once but generally never threatened in the Kings XI.
The Sunrisers won their title in 2016 and came close to another in 2018 when they were beaten in the final. Since winning their first IPL trophy, this is a franchise that understands what it takes to win the IPL, and they look much better because of that. They play their home games at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, somewhere that has brought success in the past and a ground they will be hoping to continue that trend.

SRH vs KXIP

SRH vs KXIP 2018
The SRH vs KXIP 2018 game was a low scoring affair at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium. The Sunrisers went into bat first and were well held by the Kings XI, who limited them to just 132/6 from their 20 overs. Manish Pandey was good with the bat, he scored 54 from 51 deliveries, but this innings was all about the bowling of Ankit Rajpoot, who took five wickets from four overs while also only conceding 14 runs. He was a big reason why this game turned out to be low scoring.
Unfortunately for the Kings XI, their batsmen could not go out and match the levels shown by Rajpoot in the game. They struggled from the very start, with 32 from K L Rahul and 23 from Chris Gayle their only players to score over 20 in the game. That all left them reaching just 119 all out from 19.2 overs, giving the Sunrisers Hyderabad the victory.
SRH vs KXIP 2019
In stark contrast, the SRH vs KXIP 2019 meeting was a very high scoring game. The Sunrisers went into bat first and put a huge total on the board of 212/6 from their 20 overs. David Warner led the way by scoring 81 runs from 56 deliveries, while those in behind made smaller contributions. Two wickets for R Ashwin and Mohammed Shami tried to slow the Sunrisers down, but it didn’t really work.
The Kings XI came out fighting, knowing what a big score was required, but they ended up a long way off the rate. They reached 167/8 from their 20 overs, leaving the Sunrisers to win the game by 45 runs. K L Rahul tried his best for the team, scoring 79 runs from 56 balls while everyone else on the team failed to get going. David Warner took home the man of the match award from this game after his brilliant batting performance in the first innings.
