It has been a horror start for Hyderabad with poor performances in all departments from their first two matches. It would need a big lift to get them going and the return to Hyderabad is expected to work a charm. While that is a million-dollar question, Punjab Kings may fancy their chances in the six tally. I am backing Punjab Kings to hit more 6s in this match.

Head to Head


There have been 20 matches between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Punjab Kings across IPL competitions. Of these, there have been 13 Sunrisers wins and seven Punjab victories.

Last season saw the two teams share the results. While Sunrisers Hyderabad won by seven wickets at the DY Patil Stadium while Punjab Kings won by five wickets at the Wankhede Stadium. This venue is a bigger draw for Sunrisers who have won their last five against Punjab here.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Form


It has been a horror start for Hyderabad losing their first two matches of the season. They were beaten by 72 runs in the first match by Rajasthan and by five wickets in the second by Lucknow Super Giants.

Batting has been a real shocker for the Sunrisers with Abdul Samad, the only batter aggregating more than 35 runs. There’s never a better time for the South African contingent to start making runs for them.

Bowling hasn’t been any better with T. Natarajan (two), Adil Rashid (two) and Fazalhaq Farooqi (three) among the ones to have the slightest of impact.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Team News


Sunrisers may think long and hard about having a proper ‘keeper in the squad as Anmolpreet had a horror game last time. A game for Akeal Hosein can’t be ruled out as their bowling looks rudderless.

Punjab Kings Form


Punjab Kings started their season in an exactly opposite way to Hyderabad winning both their matches. They defeated Kolkata by seven runs (DLS) before winning by five runs against Rajasthan.

Captain Shikhar Dhawan has been the leading light for Punjab with 126 runs at a SR of 148.23. His younger partner Prabhsimran Singh has been a revelation with 83 runs at a SR of 180.43.

With the ball, it has been about their seamers Nathan Ellis and Arshdeep Singh who have taken five wickets each.

Punjab Kings Team News


Bhanuka Rajapaksa may find his place threatened by the presence of Matthew Short in the squad. Otherwise, the Punjab side looks settled.
