SRH vs PBKS Team Previews

Sunrisers Hyderabad

It hasn’t been the best of starts for the Sunrisers as they have lost both of their games so far. While these are still early days in the tournament, they will need to get things back on track pretty soon.

The batting has been the biggest letdown for them as they have managed scores of 131 and 121 in the 2 matches that they have played. The top order has failed to fire as the likes of Mayank Agarwal and Rahul Tripathi have lacked the intent to play a big inning.

Aiden Markram, who is leading the team for the first time, had the worst possible start to his stint as he was bowled for a golden duck. Harry Brook, who had generated much buzz during the auction has been another disappointment in the middle order.

The team does have a lot of depth in their batting thanks to the likes of Washington Sundar, Abdul Samad, and Adil Rashid but without a good platform, they will have nothing to build on. With the trio of Fazalhaq Farooqi, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, and Umran Malik, the Sunrisers have one of the strongest pace attacks in the league.

The bowling changes leave a lot to be desired as bowlers the likes of Washington Sundar and Umran Malik haven’t been used to their full potential.

Punjab Kings

The Punjab Kings couldn’t have asked for a better start to their campaign as they have won both the matches that they have played so far. A win here will help them overtake the Titans as well as the Super Giants to reach the top of the points table.

Prabhsimran Singh and Shikhar Dhawan make a solid opening pair, while the team has found a dependable player for the number-3 slot in the form of Bhanuka Rajapaksa. Jiteah Sharma, who has got good starts in both innings will be looking to score some big runs here. While Shahrukh Khan and Sikandar Raza haven’t been in the best of forms so far, the Kings do have Sam Curran batting lower down the order and he is capable of playing some big shots.

New ball bowlers Arshdeep Singh and Nathan Ellis have done a good job for the team with the latter picking up 4 wickets in the game against Rajasthan. The spin bowlers have struggled though, as Rahul Chahar and Sikandar Raza have picked up just 1 wicket each in the two matches.

While the top-order has done well, the Kings will want the middle-order batsmen to step up here.

Pitch and Conditions

The surface at the Rajiv Gandhi Stadium in Hyderabad is excellent to bat on and has hosted some high-scoring encounters in the past seasons. There is some dry grass on the pitch which may make the odd ball move a bit but set batsmen will be able to play their shots easily. Teams batting first will be looking to score close to 200 runs here.

The weather is expected to remain clear with temperatures of below 30 degrees Celsius. 


SRH vs PBKS Betting Tips

While it may be tempting to back the home team after seeing the head-to-head record, we feel it is more logical to back the Punjab Kings here. They will be brimming with confidence when they take on the field and they have a winning momentum to back them. On the other hand, the Sunrisers have struggled to score runs and we expect their woes to continue.

Bet on the Sunrisers Hyderabad to win.

    To take 2+ wickets

    Arshdeep Singh (2.40)


While the pitch at Hyderabad is excellent to bat on, it is quite dry and does aid the quicker bowlers. Arshdeep Singh has been in good form so far and has at least 2 wickets in both of his games. We are therefore backing him to bowl another good spell here.

    Punjab Kings 1st 6 Overs Score

    Over 51.5 (2.5)


Shikhar Dhawan and Prabhsimran Singh have provided the Punjab Kings with solid starts in both matches and the team has managed to score over 51.5 runs in both those games during the Powerplay. With another batting wicket on offer, we can expect more fireworks from Punjab and another big score in the first six overs.
