Punjab Kings:  A Preview

As captain Shikhar Dhawan has shown quite a mature approach towards his game and his team in the earlier match which led them to earn the much-needed victory over their opponent team -Gujaran Titans. But this winning does not necessarily confirm their next win over Sunrizers Hyderabad as they too are eager to make this match their next achievement. However, Shikhar Dhavan needs to approach this coming match cautiously and wisely because the Sunrizers Hyderabad have quite fierce bowlers who are very much capable of halting Shikhar’s team’s winning squad. Another reason that adds further to the worry of Dhawan I, is the relatively inconsistent performance of his team, especially in terms of bowling his team has a lot to improve to make a significant impact. Even the Sinrizers Hyderabad‘s Batsmen are quite strong enough and to tackle them, the Punjab Kings' skipper would have to put in more effort and disciplined approach to slow down the batting bullet train of Sunrizers Hyderabad.

Shikhar Dhawan and Jonny Bairstow need to play more consistently to make a visible impact in this match although they have some good hitters namely Sikandar Raza, Prabhasimran Singh, and Sam Curran who can bring momentum to the game with their batting skills. Also, the duo Shashank Singh and Ashutosh Sharma had put up a very good show with their impressive game in the last match and it’s quite obvious that they will be eager to repeat it in this match too.

On the bowling front, They have to create a good strategy and execute it sternly as their bowlers  Harpreet Brar and Arshdeep Singh have already shown their might in previous matches, and with proper planning and execution, they can surely do even better in the upcoming match. Though there were substantial hopes from Kagiso Rabada, so far he has failed to show any spark, same is the case with Sam Curran, so they both need to bring a good performance to the table this time. Harshal Patel and Raza are consistent in their game, they just need to maintain it further. 

Sunrizers Hyderabad: A Preview

Pat Cummins had quite an exciting match, breaking down all the resistance of the mighty Chennai Super Kings in the last game. With a tough match like that going in their pocket, through a good show with a bowling attack restricting the galloping horses of CSK and restricting them to a relatively small total, Sunrizers Hyderabad played a very impressive game. This win has not only boosted their morale but has also helped them to climb a few places higher in the IPL table. It is only fair to expect that Cummins will try his best to maintain this level of playing through the next match and further to make it to the top of the chart.  

Sunrizers Hyderabad had the winning pair, Abhishek Sharma and Travis Head who gave an impressive performance in the last game, are expected to deliver even better performance this time. Aiden Markram has proved that he has something special in him with his last match’s winning knock and he too will be expected to show the same charisma of his fine play in this coming match accompanied by  Shahbaz Ahmed and Heinrich.

The last match gave this team the opportunity to show their fiery bowling ability and we can expect even more sparks from bowlers like Abhishek Sharma and Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the upcoming cricket play. Even T Natarajan and Cummins bowled well showing rays of hope and will surely try to keep up the form to achieve more.   

The Pitch and the Expected Weather Conditions of PCA New Stadium, Mullanpur

It is expected that the weather conditions will be a bit hazy in Chandigarh. Although the pitch provides a good surface for batsmen to play freely. But the conditions might not be as favourable to bowlers especially for fast bowlers and spinners and they need to be cautious and put in more effort. 

Finally, The Much Awaited Prediction:

Though Punjab Kings have been the winner of the last match, they still have a lot to improve to face the Sunrizers Hyderabad and create a winning history. On the other hand, Sunrizers Hyderabad have a strong team composition both in terms of hitting and bowling giving them an edge over their opponent and taking them near to their next win.
