PBKS vs SRH Match Preview
VIVO IPL 2021 will witness its second doubleheader on Wednesday, April 20th. The daytime match will be played between Punjab Kings (PBKS) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). Both the teams have played 3 games so far out of which Punjab Kings won one of the games while Sunrisers Hyderabad is yet to register a victory in this season.
One can also call it the clash between the two teams languishing at the bottom of the points table. While Sunrisers Hyderabad is at the bottom. Punjab Kings, on the other hand, are just a place above them.
Talking about the teams, bowling has been an issue for Punjab Kings this season with the likes of Mohammed Shami, Riley Meredith and Jhye Richardson taken to cleaners in previous games. Hence, the likes of Chris Jordan and Ravi Bishnoi can find a place in the line-up soon.
Sunrisers Hyderabad, on the other hand, really has some work to do as two of their three defeats came due to shocking middle-order collapses. To avoid this, Kane Williamson somehow needs to get a place in the playing XI.
Here are the match details, pitch report, probable playing 11, squads and Dream11 fantasy team predictions for Match 14 of the 14th edition of Indian Premier League (IPL 2021) between Punjab Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad on Wednesday, April 21, 2021.
