The Kings XI Punjab are set to take on the Hobart Hurricanes in a Champions League Twenty20 match on Thursday, September 18.

The match at Punjab Cricket Association Stadium in Mohali is scheduled to start at 8 p.m. IST (2:30 p.m. GMT; 12:30 a.m. on Friday AEST).

The match will be broadcast on Star Sports in India. Unfortunately a station for Australia isn’t on the listings.

It will also be broadcast on Star Cricket in Sri Lanka and the rest of South East Asia, Astro in Malaysia, Gazi TV in Bangladesh, PTV in Pakistan, Supersport in Africa, Eurosport in the United Kingdom and Europe, ESPN in the United States and South America, Sportsnet in Canada, OSN in the Middle East, and SKY TV in New Zealand.

Live streaming will be available through most broadcasters.

It will be the first match of the tournament for both teams. They’re in Group B with the Cape Cobras, Northern Knights, and Barbados Tridents.

After this match, KXIP will take on the Tridents on Saturday in Mohali while the Hurricanes will face the Cobras on Sunday in Hyderabad.

“KXIP topped the table at the end of the league stage of IPL 2014, before they were outdone by the Kolkata Knight Riders in a high-scoring final in Bengaluru. The team from Mohali will be keen to go the distance in this competition and take home the winner’s trophy,” notes the official tournament website.

“The Hobart Hurricanes, who won the BBL03 title in February this year, will be keen to add more silverware to their trophy cabinet. They will be aware of the trend of Australian teams doing well in the CLT20; New South Wales Blues won the title in 2009, while Sydney Sixers emerged champions in 2012.”

The Kings should be considered the favorites but by no means is any outcome assured. The website notes that the Kings have a strong batting lineup, led by Glenn Maxwell and David Miller, though the team will miss Mitchell Johnson, who is out with an injury.

The Hurricanes have a strong bowling squad, including the likes of Ben Hilfenhaus and Doug Bollinger, while Ben dunk leads the batting.
