IPL 2021: Match 14, Punjab Kings vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Preview & Prediction

IPL Match 14

Time     :  3:30 PM IST

Date     :  21 April 2021

Venue    :  MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai


Punjab Kings are going to play in the conditions of Chennai for the first time in this tournament when they have just one win out of three matches played so far. We had seen that the batting order of Punjab had scored runs in Mumbai but it will be interesting to see how they get adjusted in new conditions. We know that Chennai is a low-scoring venue and the strong batting order of Punjab will be struggling.

The bowling department of Punjab Kings had leaked a lot of runs in Mumbai but the conditions on MA Chidambaram Stadium are in their favor. We had already submitted that the conditions in Chennai are in favor of the spin bowlers so we think that Fabian Allen is the perfect option for Punjab at this venue. He is a bowler who can give an early break throw to the team and can also lead to a win.

The skipper of Sunrisers Hyderabad, David Warner will be disappointed with the team as they lost the previous two matches which were easy to win for his team. We think that Sunrisers Hyderabad is not a weak but an unlucky team. They made four changes in their squad in the previous match against Mumbai Indians but no change in performances. Now, this is the right time to bring Kane Williamson in the team.

Where the batting order of Sunrisers Hyderabad had been struggling, we had seen some good performances by the bowling department. Bhuvaneshwar Kumar and Rashid Khan had performed well in almost all previously played matches and they will also lead the bowling department in this match. Mujeeb ur Rahman and Khaleel Ahmed were given the chance in the previous match but they failed to deliver.

Pitch Report

The conditions in Chennai have been quite bowler-friendly. A score of around 160 is par and anything more than that is going to be hard to chase down. The pitch slows down dramatically in the second inning and we have not seen any dew come into play just yet. Batsmen that bat against the new ball and spinners have the best chance of success.

Possible Playing XI

Punjab Kings:

KL Rahul (C & WK), Mayank Agarwal, Chris Gayle, Deepak Hooda, Nicholas Pooran, Shahrukh Khan, Fabian Allen/Chris Jordan, Jhye Richardson, Ravi Bishnoi, Mohammed Shami, Arshdeep Singh

Sunrisers Hyderabad:

David Warner (C), Jonny Bairstow (WK), Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, Abhishek Sharma, Abdul Samad, Vijay Shankar, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, T Natarajan
