Chennai: The match number 14 will be played between Punjab Kings and SunRisers Hyderabad in the afternoon encounter at MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Wednesday.
Sunrisers Hyderabad have the better head-to-head record, but it was Punjab Kings who won the last encounter between these two sides. KL Rahul’s team got a win in their opening game, while Sunrisers Hyderabad are yet to open their account for IPL 2021.
Both sides are searching for form in these early stages of the competition, and a win on Wednesday could help them get on the right track.
Arshdeep Singh has been one of the bright sparks for Punjab Kings this season. While Jonny Bairstow has been one of the top scorer for Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Head to Head: The last time these two teams met, SRH suffered one of those batting collapses that they are renowned for. Seven wickets were lost in the space of 14 runs as PBKS successfully defended 126.
