Match 28 of the Indian Premier League 2022 will see the Punjab Kings (PBKS) square off against the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai. Both sides are in good form as they are backed with a victory from their respective previous encounters. Having won three out of five games, both teams have six points in their bags, and while PBKS is placed fourth, SRH stands at the seventh spot in the points table.
A burgeoning SRH will look to extend their three-match winning streak as the confidence from their winning momentum will come in handy. SRH began their campaign with two defeats but bounced back in the next three outings. The SRH top order has been performing well lately, with Abhishek Sharma and Rahul Tripathi adding the crucial runs on the board, and skipper Kane Williamson and Aiden Markram performing in need.
The SRH bowlers have been consistent as well, with pacer Umran Malik improving his game day by day. Contributions from Washington Sundar and T Natarajan have been a boon for the team. SRH have balanced out the team formation, and combined efforts from the whole team have helped them win three games in a row.
PBKS have been winning games alternately as they have faced a defeat after every win. But their recent outing was a memorable one as they beat Mumbai Indians to hand them their fifth defeat of the season. Skipper Mayank Agarwal will look to break the pattern of the season and will eye to break SRH’s winning streak.
The PBKS opening pair of Agarwal and Shikhar Dhawan is in good form, and the middle-order batting duo of Shahrukh Khan and Jitesh Sharma displayed great skills in their previous game. PBKS will have to shift the focus on the bowling attack and see to it that the bowlers don’t concede many runs as they did in the game against Mumbai.
The average first innings score in the last 25 games at the DY Patil Stadium is 175 runs. The pitch will favour both the batters and the bowlers, with an inclination towards the pacers.
Playing Combinations for PBKS vs SRH
The opening pair can be trusted upon and the top order will grow even stronger once Jonny Bairstow gets into form. Liam Livingstone’s previous game was not a good one, but he has been performing with the bat alongside fellow batters Shahrukh Khan and Jitesh Sharma. Odean Smith’s bowling will be something to look out for, after his last over heroics against MI.
Predicted XI: Mayank Agarwal (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Jonny Bairstow, Liam Livingstone, Jitesh Sharma (wk), Odean Smith, Shahrukh Khan, Kagiso Rabada, Rahul Chahar, Vaibhav Arora, Arshdeep Singh
Umran Malik’s improvement has been seen already, but experienced bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar will have to work his magic on the pitch as it will support the seamers.
Predicted XI: Abhishek Sharma, Kane Williamson (c), Rahul Tripathi, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Aiden Markram, Shashank Singh, Jagadeesha Suchith, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Marco Jansen, Umran Malik, T Natarajan
