SRH v KXIP IPL 2020 Match 22 Live
SRH and KXIP have four and two points against their names from five games respectively. Losing their first two games of the season to Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), SRH rebounded and won two games in a row against Delhi Capitals (DC) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK). However, the team led by David Warner failed to score a hat-trick of wins after losing to Mumbai Indians (MI).
When they come to KXIP, they will try to break the defeat in three games. While KXIP ended up losing out after a super-over thriller in their first game against DC, they beat RCB in their second game of the season. However, KL Rahul and Co. lost three games in a row against Rajasthan Royals (RR), MI and CSK.
As SRH and KXIP try to get back on winning ways, here are the players who could be critical to changing the way the game played.
The SRH skipper scored his first half-century IPL 2020 in his team’s final game against MI. While SRH ended up on the losing side on that occasion, Warner will try to continue his stroke form and lead his team to a win against KXIP.
KL Rahul has 302 runs against his name after 5 games in the IPL 2020 and KXIP will again depend on his skipper to do well with the racket. The right-hander has scored one hundred and fifty-two in the tournament so far, and with KXIP chasing a much-needed win to break the losing streak, Rahul will seek to put on a show with the bat and lead his team to a win.
Three consecutive games – against DC, CSK and MI – with a savings rate of less than 6 and a previous game – against KKR – with a savings rate of 6.25. Rashid Khan kept things extremely close for SRH with the ball. While SRH takes on KXIP, Rashid will face greats like Rahul and Mayank, and their fight could determine the course of the game.
While Rahul is leading this IPL, Mayank Agarwal is not far behind. The good friends between them have scored 574 runs in 5 games. Mayank, who has a ton and fifty against his name in the season, has made a good impression in all of the games he has played and his role, along with Rahul, will be back at the top of the batting team, which is vital to the fortune of KXIP.
The right arm pacemaker scalped 8 wickets from 5 games, but as KXIP is looking for his second win, Mohammad Shami will have to cut out his task – forcing the problem with the ball, picking wickets, and always holding things on shells. If he and all the other KXIP bowlers do well, the team will have the option to add two more points to their account.
