IPL: Punjab opt to bat against Hyderabad

The Punjab team, captained by Ravichandran Ashwin, had defeated Chennai Super Kings in their last match. They have few problems with the fast bowling contingent, but their batting and spinning department looked sorted and settled to lead them into the knockout stages.

WICKET! The visitors' matters just keeps getting worse as Mohit Sharma clean bowls Wriddhiman Saha for just six runs.

With a win record of 100 per cent in the tournament so far, Sunrisers Hyderabad turn up against the Kings XI Punjab tonight with the hope of keeping their record intact. Lokesh Rahul has scored most runs for Punjab in three matches with the help of a fifty.

However, since then it all seemed to go the hosts' way as they finished with a huge total. He conceded 33 runs in his four overs for a wicket. The bowling attack of the Sunrisers is also the reason why I haven't really considered Chris Gayle. They are often referred to as the chokers due to their reputation of losing in the knock out matches. Chris Gayle and KL Rahul are being counted as the most unsafe opening pair of IPL 2018. Yuvraj Singh, Karun Nayar, Mayank Agarwal will strengthen the middle order, though the poor form of Australian batsman Aaron Finch is worrying for the team.

The 11 instalment of the Indian Premier League has been giving the cricket enthusiasts that much needed feels.

WICKET! Mayank Agarwal has been dismissed for 18 as Deepak Hooda takes the catch at backward point, courtesy Siddarth Kaul's delivery. Also, KL Rahul is in red-hot form, which has also been a contributing factor in the side's turn of fortunes.

The "Universe Boss" Gayle exploited the best bowling line-up in the IPL 2018 to score 104 runs off 63 balls hitting 1 four and 11 big sixes. KL Rahul (7) has been supporting him from the other end.

While Ashwin's team are unchanged for the match, SRH have made one change, bringing in Chris Jordan in place of Billy Stanlake.

Air quality report mostly good for Northeast Pa.
The report did cite climate change as a factor statewide for rising levels of ozone pollution that stems from vehicle emissions. California has operated under a waiver that allowed it to impose tougher requirements than called for under the Clean Air Act.

Kings XI Punjab's R Ashwin became the first captain to opt to bat in IPL 2018, against Sunrisers Hyderabad in Mohali.

The match at the Punjab Cricket Stadium pits a home side that has a lot of batting firepower against a Hyderabad side that is very balanced and their bowling line-up one of the best in the tournament.

KXIP have won 2 and lost a game against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).

Hyderabad bowlers again rose to the occasion in the previous match against Kolkata Knight Riders, who were restricted to 138/8, the game in which SRH frontline bowler Bhuvneshwar took three scalps.

Gayle has been part of the IPL from its first edition but in terms of a brutal batsman, the Jamaican born bloomed late.

As far as the Sunrisers Hyderabad is concerned, although the team has won all its games, the Hyderabad team can be tested if they have to set a target for the opposition tonight at the IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali.

As the early front-runner, SRH carries the tag of being a pre-match favourite.
