The 22th match of IPL 2020 will be held at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, played betweenSunrisers Hyderabad and Kings XI Punjab. The match will be kicked off on 8th October (Thursday) at 20:00 (GMT+6).
There was nothing going on this season as per the plan of Sunrisers Hyderabad. Ruling out of Bhuvneshwar Kumar has only added to the woes. They have won just two out of five matches so far, and appear to be one of the weaker sides in the tournament. They haven’t been able to be up to the mark with their most important batsmen, Jonny Bairstow and David Warner, not firing consistently. They are gearing up to take on the Kings XI Punjab in this match with some questions to be answered.
Thus far, Kings XI Punjab has been one of the most unfortunate teams. They’ve lost the matches they should have won. Their bowlers struggled to perform if their batsmen played well. That was the case in their last game as well. Their bowlers struggled to restrict the batsmen of the Chennai Super Kings and conceded a 10-wicket victory. So, despite playing some good cricket at this stage, they won only one out of five matches. They’d like to get back on track with a victory in this match and climb up to the points table.
On Thursday in Dubai, it will be a bright and sunny day. The temperature will stay around 33 degrees Celsius in the evening. The level of humidity will be in the late 50s and will peak as the match goes on.
It’s a sports pitch that is on offer at this ground. If they get their eye in, batsmen can get big scores. The teams chasing were largely successful here.
