Both sides went on to lose their respective matches on Saturday and would want to bounce back in style.
The match is set to start at 8:00 PM.
Fans, who are playing Dream11, will be looking to pick the winning team.
Here we decode the same.
Warner, Gayle lead the batting department
We have gone with Chris Gayle and David Warner as the openers of this Fantasy XI.
Gayle is due for a big innings and he could thrive in Mohali.
In-form Warner is also the captain of this fantasy side.
Wicket-keeper batsman Jonny Bairstow lends support at number three.
Mayank Agarwal provides the steel in the middle alongside veteran Yusuf Pathan.
Ashwin and Nabi provide the base as all-rounders
We have decided to opt for three all-rounders in this team.
KXIP skipper R Ashwin has been terrific with the ball and he is the vice-captain.
Ashwin will be supported by Englishman Sam Curran.
The left-arm pacer can play a brisk cameo to enhance KXIP.
Mohammad Nabi has grabbed the headlines with his exceptional bowling.
He can also accelerate with the bat when needed.
A spin-heavy bowling attack on offer
Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Rashid Khan join Nabi as the other Afghans in this side. Rashid has been producing the goods in every match so far. Mujeeb will be crucial in tying down SRH's middle order. In-form pacer Siddarth Kaul has wicket-taking prowess.
Predicted starting XI and possible winners
Predicted starting XI for KXIP: Gayle, Rahul (wicket-keeper), Mayank, Sarfaraz, Miller, Mandeep, Curran, Ashwin, Murugan, Shami and Tye.
Predicted starting XI for SRH: Warner, Bairstow (wicket-keeper), Shankar, Manish, Pathan, Hooda, Nabi, Rashid, Bhuvneshwar (captain), Sandeep and Kaul.
KXIP have played well in Mohali and there will be the confidence factor riding.
SRH are stronger as a team. They might spoil KXIP's party.
