Chris Gayle's blistering hundred helped Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) overpower Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) by 15 runs in the Indian Premier League match at Mohali on Thursday. SRH would hope that their fielding unit continues to perform well and contribute towards the team's success. Chris Gayle scored a century in this match and proved that he is in the good form through this. After their win over Chennai Super Kings in the last game, KXIP will be high on confidence when they play at home today.
It will be a clash of two excellent squads, with Hyderabad being lauded as the best bowling side of the tournament and Punjab as one of the best batting sides.
Gayle along with KL Rahul commenced proceedings and the duo racked a partnership of 53 runs off 47 balls.

For his part, Lofven praised India for its "global power" and said that the two countries were a "perfect combination". At the end of the Summit, India and the Nordic countries issued a Joint Statement.
On the other hand, the only match KXIP have lost so far is against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at Chinnaswamy Stadium. Andrew Tye then sucked the life out of the chase by striking twice in the middle overs where he sent Kane Williamson packing after his fifty and followed it up with the wicket of Deepak Hooda, who has the potential to explode in the death overs. It was an opportunity for the men in red to make it three wins in as many matches at their official home ground before they shift their base to Indore for the rest of the season. It will be the responsibility of team over Wriddhiman Saha to give a tremendous start to the team.
For KXIP, all eyes will be on the presence of big-hitter Chris Gayle, who played a quickfire innings of 63 off just 33 balls. It was just the one-man show in batting as he ransacked the most talked about bowling line up of IPL. It didn't help Hyderabad that Shikhar Dhawan was forced to retire hurt in the second ball of the chase.
The Kings XI Punjab have won 2 out of their 3 matches and after denying MS Dhoni's attempt to win a thrilling game at Mohali the other day, would be feeling pretty confident about their campaign.
Telecast: KXIP vs SRH match will be telecast by the Star Network.
