It is the second day of the double headers in the Dream11 Indian T20 League 2021. It will be a clash between Punjab Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad. These two teams currently occupy the bottom half of the points table and are off to a troubled start to their campaign.
The Orange Army has lost all its games and more importantly, all these losses have been almost identical. It’s becoming a habit for them to steal defeat from the jaws of victory. They need someone in the middle order to stick till the end and finish the game for them.
Punjab on the other side, has done a decent job with the bat so far. They are in requirement of a bowler who can bowl some crucial death overs at the later stage of the innings. They, just like the last season have conceded a lot of runs at the end stage of the an innings.
It would be a fascinating contest to watch for as both the teams will be looking forward to get a place in the top half of the table rather than the bottom one.
