SRH vs PBKS Match Prediction: Sunrisers Hyderabad and Punjab Kings will be face to face in IPL today (April 9). The match will start at 7.30 pm at the Rajiv Gandhi Cricket Stadium in Hyderabad. Here Sunrisers Hyderabad will get the advantage of their home ground but it will not be easy for them to win over Punjab Kings. This is because the Punjab team is in good rhythm at the moment, while the Sunrisers team seems to have less fighting power.
In IPL 2023, both these teams have played two matches each. Where Punjab Kings have defeated Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals in a tough match. At the same time, Sunrisers have faced one-sided defeat against Lucknow Super Giants and Rajasthan Royals. If we look at these previous matches, it becomes clear that the Punjab team does not lose courage till the last moments, while the lack of fighting skills in the Sunrisers team is clearly visible.
Hyderabad forward in fast bowling
Both teams are almost in competition in terms of playing-11. There is more than one player in both these teams. By the way, in the case of fast bowlers, the Sunrisers team seems to dominate a bit. The fast bowlers have also been getting help at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Hyderabad. In such a situation, Sunrisers will have a chance to take advantage of this strength. Although Punjab Kings also have fast bowlers like Sam Curran and Arshdeep, who have also proved themselves on big platforms.
Punjab batsmen in excellent form
The best thing for Punjab Kings is that the top order of this team is in form. Shikhar Dhawan, Prabhsimran Singh and Bhanuka Rajapaksa have indicated their good form. Jitesh Sharma, Sikandar Raza and Sam Curran are also seen in good touch in the middle order. In contrast, Sunrisers’ batting has been a complete flop in the last two matches. From Mayank Agarwal to Rahul Tripathi and Harry Brook, all the batsmen have looked colorless till now.
Overall, both the teams are in competition but the Punjab team seems to be in form and the Hyderabad team is yet to find a way to get into good rhythm. In such a situation, the chances of Punjab winning this match are high.
