The fourteenth match of the tournament will be played between KL Rahul led PBKS taking on David Warner’s SRH. Both the teams will be much concerned about their present scenario as they are at the bottom of the points table.
Despite having a thrilling start against Rajasthan Royals by Punjab Kings with a win they lost regular two matches against Chennai Super Kings due to the batting collapse while against Delhi Capitals due to the vulnerable bowling performance. With their two losses now Punjab Kings are at 7th spot of the Points Table with an awful net run rate of -0.967.
They definitely need to bounce-back otherwise they would face the same consequences as they got in the previous edition as well.
On the other hand, Sunrisers Hyderabad is the team who always shows their ability to win the matches with their cool temperament but this season the destiny wrote something else, they are the only team in the tournament who has lost all the three matches yet so far. Franchise is still searching for their first win of the tournament.
They lost all three matches against Kolkata Knock Riders, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians respectively and spotted themselves at the last of the points table with a devastating net run rate of -0.483.
They need to focus a lot in the middle order as in all the three matches, the same thing happened with inconsistent middle order performance with uncontrollable death bowling. They desperately need the services of Kane Williamson in the middle order whereas presence of Kedar Jadhav might also promote upstream for the team where they are lacking.
Head to Head
Both teams played 16 matches against each other where Sunrisers Hyderabad have a total dominance over Punjab Kings with 11 wins while Punjab has managed to win only 5 matches in the IPL History.
