PBKS vs SRH Match Preview
Punjab Kings will come into a face-off with SunRisers Hyderabad in the first match of a week-day double-header IPL match on Wednesday, 21st April at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.
Both the teams have endured bad starts to their IPL 2021 campaigns. Punjab Kings have registered just one win out of three matches they have played while SRH has zero wins registered on their name.
Punjab Kings lost massive six wickets in their previous clash against Delhi capitals after being sent to bat first in the batting-friendly Wankhede stadium. PBKS scored 195/4 in 20 overs thanks to the swashbuckling performance from Mayank Agarwal & KL Rahul.
The total didn’t prove to be effective as Delhi Capitals smashed PBKS bowler’s right from the start of their chase. Dhawan was unstoppable even after the dismissal of Shaw. And has successfully registered 92 which laid the base for DC victory against PBKS. PBKS should rethink their team combination as they will play their next match on the sluggish Chepauk pitch against DC.
Whereas SRH is the only team that has not registered even a single win in the ongoing IPL season. SRH lacks depth in their batting order which was quite evident in the matches they have played. They have batted second in the games they have played so far & in the absence of their star player Kane Williamson, they lacked the composure to finish the games successfully.
In their previous clash against Mumbai Indians, despite getting off to a good start with the bat, they collapsed to a stringent bowling attack from MI. And fell short of reaching the target by 13 runs. SRH will have to figure out ways to anyhow stable their batting order by bringing Kane Williamson back in their Playing XI. And will have to improve their bowling performance with Manish Pandey & Bhuvneshwar Kumar stepping up.
Both SRH & PBKS will aim to win tomorrow’s clash to give much-needed momentum to their campaigns. And to add two crucial points in front of their name on the IPL 2021 Points table. Looking at the strength of both teams bowling & batting department, we can expect an exciting face-off tomorrow. It’s very crucial for SRH to open their winning account in the IPL 2021 as they are lacking behind all the teams by winning 0 matches so far.
While SRH has experience of playing on Chepauk pitch, their batting order lacks the depth to cope with the fall of wickets. On the other hand, PBKS bowlers will find it easier to get control over SRH at Chepauk slowish pitch. And if PBKS batsmen perform well, they can surely register their second win of the season in tomorrow’s clash against SRH.
