Today Match Prediction for PBKS vs SRH: Punjab Kings will take Sunrisers Hyderbad in what will be the fourteenth match of IPL 2021 on Wednesday. There is a lot of scope for improvement for both sides as neither of them has made a good start to their campaign.
Sunrisers Hyderabad are currently languishing at the bottom of the table. They have played three games and are yet to win a single game in the tournament. David Warner was unlucky to have got run-out in the last game against Mumbai Indians. They bowled well in the last game to restrict Mumbai Indians to 150 in the first innings.
Jonny Bairstow took the world by storm in the second innings, giving SRH a fine start. He would have sealed the game for SRH had he not gotten out Hit Wicket on 43 off 22 balls. Despite, that powerful knock, SRH failed to chase the total down as what followed was a massive collapse.
In all three games, the middle-order failed to produce runs and finish the games for the sides. Sunrisers Hyderabad have to look up for someone who could strengthen the middle order. Kedar Jadhav hasn’t yet made his debut for the side. Given his experience at the big stage, he might play his first game for SRH on Wednesday. Jason Holder too might make a comeback into the squad. Speaking of the fantasy team, David Warner, Jonny Bairstow and Rashid Khan are some of the must-have players you should have in your side.
Much like Sunrisers Hyderabad, Punjab Kings’ middle order hasn’t come to the party yet. Openers KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal have made the bulk of the runs for the side. The likes of Chris Gayle, Nicholas Pooran are yet to hit the ground running in the tournament. Punjab will be playing their next two games at Chepauk and thus it going to be even more difficult for the West Indies cricketers to adjust to the conditions. It remains to be seen how Punjab fare against SRH on Wednesday.
Looking at how the pitch has behaved in the recent games, we expect you to pick as many as spinners and openers from both sides.
In PBKS vs SRH match prediction, let’s look into some important stats from teams and the players from both sides:

Today IPL Pitch Report:
Given the match will be played at Chepauk, you can expect the surface to be conducive to spin. Both teams will play as many as spinners as they can and would opt to bat first upon winning the toss.
Standings on IPL points table:
The side which boasts of a better spin attack is likely to have an upper hand on the contest. Sunrisers Hyderabad have already played three games at Chepauk and the experience would help them perform better than PBKS, who will be playing their first game in Chennai this season. Sunrisers Hyderabad, we think, should win the contest and earn their first points in the tournament.
