Monday's only Indian Premier League (IPL) match features fourth-placed Sunrisers Hyderabad taking on fifth-placed Kings XI Punjab.

The winner will enjoy a two-point gap between them and the bottom four teams, virtually securing them a spot in the playoffs.

However, the losing side's chances to qualify for the post-season will ride on a host of other results.

Play from the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium gets underway at 6:30 pm UAE time.
