Punjab Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad are currently at the bottom of the points table and both teams will aim to get two points under their belt when they will face each other at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai on Wednesday.
It will be a crucial match for both teams.
We have the Match Prediction that can help you in placing the right bets. We will discuss current form, head to head, stats, and players to watch out for in the upcoming match.
Punjab Kings got off to a decent start as they won their first match of the season against Rajasthan Royals but they have now lost two matches on the trot. Thus, the KL Rahul-led team will aim to get back to winning ways against Sunrisers Hyderabad.
SRH, on the other hand, is still winless in the tournament. The Orange Army lacks experience in the middle order, which is their Achilles Heel. SRH will need to come up with a collective effort and they would hope that their young players grab their opportunity with both hands. Hyderabad will hope that Kane Williamson soon makes the cut into the final XI.
Head to Head – Overall matches – 16, Won by SRH – 11, Won by PBKS – 5.
Sunrisers Hyderabad will hold the advantage as per the head-to-head battle.
Players to look out for: Mayank Agarwal, Chris Gayle, KL Rahul, Mohammed Shami, Chris Jordan, and Nicholas Pooran will be the key players for PBKS.
David Warner, Jonny Bairstow, Rashid Khan, and Bhuvneshwar Kumar will be the crucial players for SRH.
Match Prediction – On the basis of current form, Punjab Kings will enter the contest as slightly favourites against a beleaguered SRH.
