The coming Sunday will be a double-header day in IPL 2023 and in the second fixture, Sunrisers Hyderabad will be hosting Punjab Kings at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium. Both teams are on a different tangent in the point table and they both witnessed a different start to the tournament this year.
The nightmare of poor performances is not coming to end for Sunrisers Hyderabad. Currently, at the bottom of the point table, Hyderabad will be hoping to bounce back on a positive note. The IPL odds are available on all betting sites in India.
Punjab Kings are turning out to be a dominant force in the IPL 2023. They have won both the fixtures the team has played and the franchise is currently in the second spot in the point table.
The last time Sunrisers Hyderabad displayed a good performance was in 2019. Since then, the team has been struggling to make their position strong in the tournament. In IPL 2023, Hyderabad had a poor start to the show in front of the Rajasthan Royals. Team management will be concerned about the below-average performance of the players which will affect the position of the team for the rest of the tournament.
Fazalhaq Farooqi, T Natarajan, and Mayank Agarwal are the key players for Hyderabad.
Predicted Lineup: Fazalhaq Farooqi, T Natarajan, Mayank Agarwal, Abdul Samad, Umran Malik, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Abhishek Sharma, Rahul Tripathi, Harry Brook, Glenn Phillips, Washington Sundar.
It looks like Punjab Kings needed the leadership of Shikhar Dhawan to make things better for the team. The team has played two fixtures and they have won both. Punjab has good depth in their batting but their primary concern would be the inconsistency displayed by the bowlers. They defeated Rajasthan Royals in the last game and reached the second spot in the point table.
Kagiso Rabada is expected to join the team for the Hyderabad game.
Predicted Lineup: Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Sikandar Raza, Arshdeep Singh, Nathan Ellis, Prabhsimran Singh, Shahrukh Khan, Harpreet Brar, Jitesh Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Rahul Chahar, Sam Curran
Punjab Kings have come out as a strong squad this year. Hyderabad has struggled overall and they are missing out on match-winners. We predict a win for Punjab Kings on Sunday.
