Match Preview:

The rampaging Sunrisers Hyderabad will travel north to take on the Punjab Kings at their new home stadium in Mullanpur near Chandigarh. Both teams have had similar seasons as they share an identical record of two wins and two losses. Ahead of this clash, the Kings pulled off a magical comeback victory over the Gujarat Titans. On the other hand, Hyderabad continued their dominant form to defeat the Chennai Super Kings at home.

Pitch Report:

The  Maharaja Yadavindra Singh International Cricket Stadium in Mullanpur has produced batting-friendly tracks, allowing batters to score a ton of runs, especially in the first innings. Different from batting first, chasing at this venue has been challenging this year as the wicket has slowed down in the second innings. Hence fast bowlers and spinners can maximise the conditions across various phases.

Team Analysis:

Punjab Kings

Despite their positive record, the Punjab Kings still have a few flaws across their playing XI. Their batting still hasn’t seen all batters fire together and are missing a power-hitter in the middle, especially after Liam Livingstone’s injury.  On the bowling front, Punjab’s Indian pacers like Arshdeep Singh and Harshal Patel have performed at the highest level. Similarly, Rahul Chahar has been far away from his best.

Punjab Kings IPL 2024 Squad:

Shikhar Dhawan (c), Jonny Bairstow, Harpreet Singh Bhatia, Prabhsimran Singh, Rilee Rossouw, Jitesh Sharma, Sam Curran, Rishi Dhawan, Liam Livingstone, Shashank Singh, Shivam Singh, Sikandar Raza, Atharva Taide, Chris Woakes, Arshdeep Singh, Rahul Chahar, Nathan Ellis, Harpreet Brar, Vidhwath Kaverappa, Harshal Patel, Kagiso Rabada, Prince Choudhary, Ashutosh Sharma, Vishwanath Singh, Tanay Thyagarajan

Sunrisers Hyderabad

On the other hand, the Sunrisers Hyderabad have stuck to their ultra-aggressive approach which has helped them pull off two dominant wins against the Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings. The SRH batting with the likes of Travis Head, Abhishek Sharma, Aiden Markram and Henrich Klassen has been in roaring form. But their bowling attack still seems a worry with the form of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jaydev Unadkat.

Jaydev Unadkat, Jhatavedh Subramanyan, T Natarajan, Mayank Markande, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Fazalhaq Farooqi, Pat Cummins (c), Washington Sundar, Shahbaz Ahmed, Sanvir Singh, Glenn Phillips, Nitish Reddy, Marco Jansen, Abhishek Sharma, Upendra Yadav, Rahul Tripathi, Aiden Markram, Heinrich Klaasen, Travis Head, Anmolpreet Singh, Mayank Agarwal, Abdul Samad, Akash Maharaj Singh, Umran Malik
