Matches Between PBKS and SRH in IPL

Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Punjab Kings have had some tremendous faceoffs. In April 2019 both teams clashed for the 48th match of the season. The Sunrisers held nothing back and had a historic first bat. 77 runs in the first six overs would not only set a precedent but also be the highest score for that season. SRH’s momentum would falter and cost them several runs. While the Kings managed to bat out twenty overs, it would not be enough to gather a win for them. Sunrisers Hyderabad would emerge victorious with a score of 212-6.

On October 8th, 2021, SRH went on to defeat PBKS by 69 runs at Dubai International Stadium. From the very start, Hyderabad’s Jonny Bairstow would work for the title of, “Man of the Match.” But as the match intensified, all eyes fell on SRH cricketer Vijay Shankar. Playing back-to-back games for the Sunrisers, Shankar made sure his team only needed twenty of eighteen balls. His efforts paid off as they secured a victory over the Kings.

In October 2021 there was another clash between the talented teams. At the time both teams were entering the 43rd match and 13th season of IPL. Prior to this engagement, PBKS and SRH had played against each other a total of 15 times. Punjab had seized 11 of those wins and the tension had only heated. Both teams sent out their best with Rahul facing Warner. With PBKS’s Mayank Agarwal out for an injury, Rahul would instead be joined by Mandeep Singh. Through sheer determination, PBKS would snag a win over their longtime rivals. SRH vs PBKS continues to gain country-wide attention among Indian cricket fans.

Punjab Kings

Established in 2008, the Kings XI Punjab is a franchise cricket team from Mohali, Punjab. In 13 seasons, the team only appeared in the playoffs once, in 2014, when they finished runners-up. Captained by Yuvraj Singh, the KXIP finished their 2008 season in third place. The following year was no better, and they finished fifth after the Chennai Super Kings crushed their semi-final hopes in the last match. Probably the worst year for the team was 2010. Aside from finishing last during the league stage in IPL 2010, the team faced expulsion from the IPL for being involved in the BCCI and Lalit Mondi controversy. The franchise filed a case with the Mumbai High Court and was reinstated the same year.

The following years were slightly better. However, the PBKS records show they never finished higher than fifth in the IPL until 2014. That year, Lady Luck was finally on their side, and they finished runners-up. Captained by George Bailey, the team won against the Chennai Super Kings in the semi-final but lost the final to the Kolkata Knight Riders by three wickets. From 2015 to 2019, they fluctuated between eighth and fifth in the IPL. The 2020 season was the 13th season for the KXIP, and they managed to win the first Double Over in IPL history, defeating the Mumbai Indians. However, the team failed to qualify for the playoffs and finished sixth in the IPL.

Even though the franchise changed its name in 2021 from Kings XI Punjab to Punjab Kings for the sake of starting fresh, the PBKS stats were terrible throughout the entire season. They finished sixth, after winning six and losing eight matches.

Over the last seven years, the PBKS have not played in a final, and in the previous three years, they finished sixth in the standings. Thus, the team decided to invest heavily into its players for this season. After breaking the bank with the most funds available in the ILP 2022 auction, the PBKS IPL 2022 squad looks impressive.

PBKS spent 18 crore to retain their top-order batter, Mayank Agarwal, pacer Arshdeep Singh, and another batter, Sharukh Khan. So far, the squad looks promising, but you can never be sure until they go to the field and start competing. Talking about the team’s strengths, with Liam Livingston, Johnny Bairstow, Shikhar Dhawan, and Mayank Agarwal in the lineup, the PBKS secured its batting department. Plus, retaining Shahrukh Khan will add much-needed depth to the batting order. Moreover, Raj Bawa and Benny Howel could prove helpful as all-rounders. While the batting unit is outstanding, the bowling unit does not inspire confidence due to its youth and inexperience. Rahul Chahar and Sandeep Sharma will need to provide a lot of support to Kagiso Rabada, spearheading the pace attack.

Sunrisers Hyderabad

The Hyderabad Sunrisers made their IPL debut in 2013. They reached the playoffs and finished in fourth place in their inaugural year. They were eliminated after losing against the Rajasthan Royals by four wickets. Unfortunately, in 2014 and 2015, the franchise failed to reach the playoffs. The following year saw fortunes change, with the team winning the 2016 edition of the SRH IPL after routing the Royal Challengers Bangalore by eight runs. In 2017, the team qualified for the playoff stage and finished third on the table. They also finished as runners-up in IPL 2018 after losing to the Chennai Super Kings. The SRH also qualified for the playoffs in 2019 and 2020.. According to SRH IPL records, the SRH reached the playoffs six times out of their nine seasons so far.

However, SRH IPL stats show that IPL 2021 was unsuccessful for the team. They finished in the last spot in the points table. Out of 14 matches, the team won only three games and lost the other 11. They were nowhere near reaching the playoffs.

This season's SHR IPL lineup is a mixture of experience and youth. SRH IPL records show that the team let go of their biggest stars — David Warner and Rashid Khan — and decided to assemble a new squad predominantly made of youngsters. They have retained Kane Williamson, a relatively young and energetic player from New Zealand, as the team’s captain. To bolster the batting department, they have also added two Punjab Kings stars, Nicholas Pooran and Aidan Markram. Other SHR IPL players include speedy bowler Umran Malik, talented Bhuvaneswar Kumar, and great all-rounder Marco Jansen.

On the other hand, their young, homegrown lineup might not be the best choice due to its lack of experience. Furthermore, SRH IPL stats reveal that their top-line bowlers Natarajan and Bhuvneshwar are prone to injuries and have no reliable backup option except for Kartik Tyagi. It’s also worth mentioning that the Sunrisers Hyderabad's most significant weakness heading into IPL 2022 is the lack of an opener and a lead spinner. Warner is no longer in the lineup, and they don't appear to have an effective opener to replace him. Due to all of these things, the SRH is predicted to finish mid-table.
