For Punjab Kings, it’s been a perfect start to the IPL campaign as they have registered 2 wins in 2 opening matches after a long time. With such a stark difference in form, PBKS will fancy their chances of putting one over SRH in their own stadium.
The captain of PBKS, Shikhar Dhawan has hit his top form at the beginning of the Indian Premier League season to help his team get solid starts. Similarly, Prabhsimran Singh played the best innings of his short IPL career against RR in Guwahati to make a big name for himself. Bhanuka Rajapaksa and Jitesh Sharma have been influential with the bat for PBKS in the middle order too. In the bowling department, Nathan Ellis has already picked up 5 wickets in 2 matches and he has been ably supported by Arshdeep Singh and Sam Curran.
Sunrisers Hyderabad were struggling for answers in their opening match of the IPL 2023 season at home as they got steamrolled by RR. The batting unit was way below par for SRH as the impact substitute Abdul Samad batted at no. 7 was the high scorer in the lineup. The return of T Natarajan back into some form was positive for Hyderabad but he will need a lot of support from other bowlers to propel his team to better outcomes in the upcoming matches. The expectations of SRH fans from the recently arrived designated captain Aiden Markram, Marco Jansen and Heinrich Klaasen will be plentiful, but whether will they be able to live up to the hype with such a short turnaround, remains to be seen.
