IPL 2021 – PBKS vs SRH: Preview, and Predicted Eleven

- Advertisement -

Punjab Kings (PBKS) will start their Chennai episode today in the Indian Premier League(IPL), they will be facing Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). SRH have lost all their games at this venue this year and will be looking to turn the result in their favor.

PBKS will also be looking to start fresh in new conditions. They have struggled to hold momentum and now find themselves at 7th position in league table. Currently they have lowest net run rate among the eight teams, which will reflect on points in the end.

SRH are at the bottom place right now after loosing all three opening matches. Their main concern is lack of finishers in squad. In all three matches they were batting second and failed to reach small targets due to lack of partnerships in the end.

Inside PBKS

Consistency is not seen in PBKS this season. K L Rahul leading from the upfront. Shahrukh Khan is hitting well. But Pooran, Mayank, Gayle are performing irregularly. Chennai’s pitch is different than Wankhede’s.  We may see additional spinners here.

Riley Meredith has not performed yet that much. We may see Jordan or the spinner All-rounder Fabian Allen this time. Young Bishnoi can play in these conditions as well.

Inside SRH

A poor phase is going on in the SRH camp. They have a talented group of players but failing to find their best playing XI. They have made most changes than any other teams in this IPL.

The opening is now looking good with Warner and Bairstow. But the middle order is too inexperienced. We may see Kane Williamson today. This means Mujeeb again has to be benched.

PBKS vs SRH: What to expect

Both the teams have quality spinners and the pitch of Chennai is getting slower now. Patches are there too. Toss will be a factor in this match. Winning the toss teams will like to bat first. A total of 160+ is good to defend in this pitch.

Probable XI of PBKS

Mayank and K L Rahul batted beautifully in the last innings. They will be looking to do the same. Gayle is not in that good shape. But the weakness of Malan against spin may be tough for the team.
