KXIP vs SRH: Head-to-head, Playing XI and other interesting stats

Sunrisers Hyderabad won by 5 wickets

Gayle batted through the innings for his 104 not out off 63 balls, which also included four twos as King's XI Punjab reached 193 for 3.

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.

In Rashid's first over, Gayle hammered him for two sixes.

Earlier, after winning the toss on batting friendly wickets Ashwin opted to bat first, thereby becoming the first captain to do so this IPL.

After getting to his first fifty off 39 balls, Gayle surged to his second off only 19 balls.

Pacer Bhuvaneshwar Kumar got rid-off Nair in the 18th over but Gayle continued to hammer every Hyderabad bowler. After a stop-start 2014, Gayle smashed 491 runs in 2015. Much of the talk prior to the game was whether Gayle could repeat his striking form against an all-round bowling attack of Hyderabad.

The CSK captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni played an unmatched game and hit several fours and six. Rashid went for 55 runs in his fours overs. However, he let loose after completing his half century. Soon, he got his century off his 58th ball pushing Sidharth Kaul for a quick single to point. Chris Gayle and KL Rahul are being counted as the most risky 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. Australian Aaron Finch's 14 not out off 6 balls in the final moments propelled Punjab to a massive total even as Gayle remained a spectator at the other end. Bowling has always been a strong department of the Sunrisers Hyderabad and this year seems to be no different.

While chasing, Sunrisers' were dealt with a blow at the onset when Shikhar Dhawan was hit on the elbow off the very first delivery that he faced from Barinder Sran.

Mohit Sharma and Tye picked up two wickets for Kings. The good fortune didn't last long though, as he too was bowled by Mohit in the fifth over.

Chasing a massive target, Hyderabad never looked in contention as the visitors lost wickets at regular intervals in the 16th IPL match. Williamson kept going and stretched the game through the middle overs with busy batting, but found no support at the other end. His whirlwind knock featured 11 towering sixes and a solitary boundary.
