The Hyderabad team failed to put up enough runs on the board as skipper Shikhar Dhawan and David Warner lost wickets after setting a foundation and they would look to not repeat the mistake against Punjab, who are on a roll with two wins.
Punjab have proved that no target is stiff enough for them as they chased down scores of 205 and 191 against Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals respectively with more than an over to spare.
The team has relied on the dangerous duo of Glenn Maxwell and David Miller, who have shown little respect for the opposition bowlers going on a rampage to blow Chennai and Rajasthan away.
With scores such as 95 runs off 43 balls and 89 in 45 balls, Maxwell has been the most devastating batsman in IPL-7 this year, while Miller too has been simply unstoppable as he blasted 37-ball 54 and 19-ball 51 in his last two unbeaten innings respectively and skipper George Bailey will want the duo to continue the carnage on Tuesday.
Kings XI Punjab : 193-6 (20/20 overs)
Sunrisers Hyderabad : 121 (19.2/20 overs)
