PBKS vs SRH Dream11 Prediction: The 14th match of the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2021) will be played between Punjab Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad at M. A. Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai on Wednesday, April 21, 2021.
PBKS vs SRH Match Preview
In one of the most-awaited clashes of VIVO IPL 2021, KL Rahul-led Punjab Kings will take on Sunrisers Hyderabad at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.
Both the teams are having a tough time in the ongoing season. While Punjab Kings have managed only one win out of the three matches they played. SurRisers Hyderabad, on the other hand, is in a more terrible situation, having lost all the three matches they played so far.
KL Rahul, skipper of Punjab Kings is in good form with bat and even Mayank Agarwal looked in great touch in the previous match against Delhi Capitals. However, they need more from Chris Gayle, Nicholas Pooran, who is known for hitting the ball. Both of them have failed to open their hands in the three matches they played.
Another massive challenge for Punjab is their bowling department, which has so far failed in delivering a desirable result in the previous matches. They desperately need to bring some changes in their bowling department to get some good results from them. Here, it is worth mentioning that players like Chris Jordan, Moises Henriques, Ravi Bishnoi and Dawid Malan are not given a single chance yet.
Sunrisers Hyderabad, on the other hand, has lost all their three matches on the trot and would be definitely looking for their first win in the tournament. Their biggest problem is how to adjust Kane Williamson who can bring a lot of experience and stability to the middle-order.
Warner, Jonny Bairstow and Rashid Khan occupy three foreign players slots and if they want to accommodate Williamson they need to let go Mujeeb Ur Rahman. They also need to make their middle-order more strong and reliable. For this purpose, they need to introduce some experienced players like Kedar Jadhav, who is currently warming the bench and has not got a single chance.

PBKS vs SRH Weather & Pitch Report
The track at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai is traditionally known for its assistance to spinners and slow bowlers. Batting here is a little difficult, which is why batsmen need to get their eye in before deciding to shift gears.
The last four matches have seen batting become difficult as the game progressed due to the increasing slowness of the surface and all four games were won by the side batting first, which is why the captain winning the toss should look to bat first and post a big total. Anything around 180 would mostly be a winning score on this surface.
The weather in Chennai seems ideal for an interrupted game of T20 cricket on Wednesday. While a partial cloud cover is expected during the day, there are no chances of rain. The temperatures are likely to hover around 32 degrees Celsius during the game.
