Punjab Kings under the leadership of Mayank Agarwal will take on Kane Williamson's Sunrisers Hyderabad in their upcoming game of IPL 2022. The two captains are known to be cool-headed and the battle between the two sides is certain to be an interesting one when both teams take the field.
Sunrisers Hyderabad and Punjab Kings will be up against each other for the first time in IPL 2022 and fans can expect the game to be a cracker as both teams won their last game. Punjab Kings, unlike previous years, have had a dominant start in the IPL and their performance has been really good so far.
The Kane Williamson-led side did not have a good start as they lost two games at the beginning of their campaign. But, following the losses the team has managed to stage a strong comeback and has won three games on the trot. However, they are still in the 7th position on the points table with 6 points because of the poor net run rate that they have. Punjab Kings too are with three wins but due to their run-rate they are positioned at number three.
Sunrisers Hyderabad have won three games back to back in the same outings that they have had in IPL 2022. Punjab Kings too are in top form as both teams are coming off wins and will look to solidify their position on the points table.
Head to Head
SRH and Punjab Kings have played against each other 17 times out of which Punjab has won 5 times and SRH have won on 12 occasions.
Sunrisers Hyderabad: Abhishek Sharma, Kane Williamson (c), Rahul Tripathi, Aiden Markram, Nicholas Pooran, Shashank Singh, Jagadeesha Suchith, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Marco Jansen, Umran Malik, T Natarajan.
Best betting tip
Shikhar Dhawan has been in good form in IPL 2022 and is coming off a stunning half-century in the last game. Shikhar can be the key for Punjab in their next game against SRH.
SRH look like they have got their mojo back and they are clicking as a team. With Aiden Markram and Nicholas Pooran playing the finishers role in the lower-order, expect them to defeat the Punjab Kings this time around.
