PBKS vs SRH Dream11 Tips for 14th match IPL 2021 Punjab Kings vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Today Match Prediction 21 April


PBKS vs SRH Dream11: Two teams at the bottom of the points table will be facing each other in an important match of IPL 2021 here at Chennai. After a win in their opening game, Punjab Kings have now lost 2 in a row and have plenty of questions. On a slow Chennai pitch, the role of openers becomes important and Punjab will hope Rahul and Agarwal provide them a quick start at the top. Bowling has let down the Kings in all their matches so far with Arshdeep Singh being the lone positive.

For Sunrisers Hyderabad, this season hasn’t been as they would have wanted to be. Warner and Bairstow are performing but the old middle order problems don’t seem to go away for Sunrisers. Vijay Shankar keeps looking for a substantial knock as the middle order looks for several answers. Bowling has always been Sunrisers’ strength and Rashid Khan & Co. will be looking to give their side the first win of the season.

Who will win today match?
Both the sides are in a fairly similar position and desperately need a win here to get their campaign up and running. The battle will be between Punjab’s batting and Hyderabad’s bowling as these are their respective strengths. The fast bowling pair of Meredith and Richardson has conceded over 10 runs an over which is a big concern for the Kings. Meanwhile, Sunrisers are the only team which is still winless this season. They were in a comfortable position in all the three chases but a middle order collapse meant they lost all of them. Sunrisers will start the match as favourites for PBKS vs SRH Dream 11 Today Match Prediction given they have already played 3 games here and have a better spin attack.
