IPL2014: 39th match – Sunrisers Hyderabad v Kings XI Punjab, May 14, 2014

Sunrisers’ defeat to Mumbai Indians on Monday cost them the chance to break into the top four – the playoff club – by displacing Kolkata Knight Riders. They are now in the bottom half of the league and another loss will be debilitating to their campaign. A victory will keep them in contention for fourth place, but third remains out of reach for the moment.

Unless they suffer a startling reverse in form, Kings XI are set for a place in the top four. Their target, therefore, is no longer a playoff berth; it is a top-two finish, which will give them two cracks at making the IPL final. Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals are their closest rivals and a win against Sunrisers will keep Kings XI above everyone else.

PunterPolls Prediction

Do you guys remember what was happened when they earlier met in this tournament? Here is the scoreboard just in case you are interested in. In the last game 51% Punters were supporting Sunrisers.

Sunrisers lost their game against Mumbai Indians must be very desperate to win this one to stay in the contest of qualifying run. Pitch is on slower side but we have seen in the last game that Mishra is not been able to put the ball in the right spot and it is not very good news for the Sunrisers. 

Other hand, Kings XI Punjab would like to book their place in the semi-finals by winning this match. Their batting is excellent and that's the reason they chose to field first after winning the toss. Both teams are playing according to their strength but Sunrisers bowlers are not performing up to the exceptions so we need to see how much Sunrisers batsmen able to put on board.

Match ODDs 1.80 Kings XI and the team we are supporting today is Kings XI Punjab.

  1. Hi Guys, So sorry. Was busy on call. 206 is the target Punjab got. Right now Punjab 81/1 after 5.4 Overs. Match ODDs 1.26 Punjab. Please book your profit on both sides. As the target is huge. though We are very positive about the Punjab win.
  2. ODDs are high, because people are looking at the target of 206. What they are not understanding is they need 120 on 84 balls. Which is very much gettable with 9 wickets in hand
    So its a hope for those who are supporting Hydrabad.
