SRH vs PBKS Match Prediction – Fantasy Picks, Expected Playing 11, Team News, Pitch Report


SRH vs PBKS Match Prediction: The MA Chidambaram Stadium will host match 13 of IPL 2021 where Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Punjab Kings (PBKS) will lock horns with each other to improve their record this season.

SRH vs PBKS Match Prediction

The two teams are currently at the bottom of the barrel with the worst record as of now. David Warner and SRH are currently in a dire situation as they have failed to win even a single game so far. On the other hand, PBKS at least have one win under their belt.

Pitch Report: With the game scheduled to be held at the Chepauk stadium, the team that will bat first might have a bit of an upper hand over their opponents. As in IPL 2021, there haven’t been any high-scoring games so far. Furthermore, this favors spin bowlers and both sides have excellent spinners that can become the match decider.

Out of 87 T20 matches played at Chepauk, the team opting to bat first has won 51 games. That is something to keep in mind for both captains while making a decision.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Expected Playing XI

  • David Warner (c)
  • Jonny Bairstow (wk)
  • Manish Pandey
  • Wriddhiman Saha

Top 5 Fantasy Picks for SRH vs PBKS IPL 2021 Match

KL Rahul

PBKS’ skipper KL Rahul is the reigning orange cap holder and he has emerged as one of the frontrunners for this year’s orange cap as well. In the first 3 games, Rahul has scored a humongous 157 runs including 2 half-centuries. Currently, he is batting with an average of 52.33 and a strike rate of 145.37

Rashid Khan

If Rashid Khan is playing a match and you are not including him in your lineup then it is a crime. Khan already has 4 wickets in 3 matches and is bowling with an economy of just 5.33. In fact you should definitely go with a combo featuring Rashid if you are investing your coins in apps like Khiladi Adda.

Arshdeep Singh

For Punjab, Arshdeep Singh has proved to be lethal so far in IPL 2021. Singh already has 5 wickets in just 3 games. He has been bowling with an average of 12.80 and maintaining his economy rate at 7.11 as well. He can cause a lot of problems for SRH’s batsmen in the upcoming match.

David Warner

After a poor start to IPL 2021, David Warner is slowly bouncing back. He has produced 90 runs in the next two games and the skipper is trying to lead the team from the front. Although he is yet to hit his groove, he remains one of the best choices to include in your fantasy team.

Manish Pandey

The last player that you can add to your fantasy team is SRH’s top-order batsman, Manish Pandey. He has smashed 101 runs in 3 innings which includes a half-century as well. Pandey is emerging as a reliable option for SRH despite the team as a whole is struggling.

SRH vs PBKS – Head to Head Matches

Since being part of the IPL, SRH and PBKS have locked horns 16 times and Hyderabad have the lead with 11 wins. But considering their poor start to the season, Punjab might be able to increase their win tally after this fixture.
