IPL 2021: PBKS vs SRH match preview and predicted playing XI

The bottom two teams will take on each other in the 14th match of the 14th IPL edition. Punjab Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad are struggling to make a mark this season. It’ll be an interesting contest between these two sides on Wednesday.

Batting order filled with firepower

Punjab Kings will come into this match losing two matches in a row while defending in Wankhade. They’ll be playing their first match in Chennai against SRH. Chepauk and Mumbai have produced two completely contrasting wickets. It’s very difficult to chase in Chepauk, whereas it’s pretty simple in Mumbai. PBKS hasn’t chased a target thus far in the tournament. On the other hand, SRH hasn’t defended a target yet. Therefore, we’re up for a crackerjack of a game. PBKS need to rejig their team combinations as spinners are getting assistance on the Chepauk wicket. Ravi Bishnoi might make his way into the team.

Will Sunrisers Hyderabad open their account in IPL 2021 ?

Warne and company haven’t won a single game thus far in the tournament. They’ve played 3 matches in Chennai, where they’ve struggled to chase down the target despite being in a commanding position early on in the innings. The experience of playing Chepauk has been dreadful for SRH. The sluggishness of the wicket has been restricting them to emerge victoriously. David Warner was quite disappointed by his team’s performance, he expressed that the middle order collapse is very frustrating. The batsmen who gave their wickets playing across the line against spinners were the culprits. In order to solve the middle-order woes, they might consider roping Kedar Jadhav in. SRH will surely learn something from their 3 losses. Punjab Kings will be playing their first match at Chennai on Wednesday. Hence, SRH know the conditions better than PBKS does.

Pitch Report

Chepauk has proved to be one of the toughest targets to bat on. It gets tougher and tougher as the game progresses. There’s some assistance for the spinners in the latter half. The team winning the toss can’t look beyond batting first. If you’re opting to chase here, you’re already putting yourself under pressure.
