Punjab Kings will have their heads up after a close but deserved victory against Rajasthan Royals and would like to continue their winning momentum in this match as well. With their star players in form and giving out valuable performances, it will be beneficial for them. On the other hand, Sunrisers Hyderabad is still searching for answers. Even after the return of Aiden Markram, they faced a defeat against the Lucknow Super Giants but would like to gather themselves back and work towards securing their first win of the tournament.
Probable Best Batter of the Match
Punjab Kings captain Shikhar Dhawan is an IPL legend and he produced a sensational match-winning performance against the Rajasthan Royals in the last match. He would like to continue his form and ensure a classic batting performance on a batter friendly Hyderabad pitch. This is the reason why he may be the best batter in the match.
Probable Best Bowler of the Match
Arshdeep Singh has been a stand-out bowler for Punjab Kings for a few seasons now and he has also been in good form in this edition as well. He would look to continue the same and ensure that he turns out to be the best bowler of the match between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Punjab Kings.
Sunrisers Hyderabad will be up against the Punjab Kings in the 14th Match of TATA Indian Premier League 2023 from the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad on 9th April 2023. For the viewers, the match will be telecast live at 7:30 pm on Star Sports network on television and Jio Cinema on your mobile handset.
In Hyderabad’s Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, pitch curators design flat surfaces that are renowned for being batting-friendly. But as the game goes on, the Hyderabad pitch helps spinners. Spinners will therefore be crucial to the Hyderabad Cricket Stadium team in IPL 2023. Here, chasing appears simple, so it would be wise to start by bowling first.
Today’s Match Prediction: Final Thoughts
While both the teams would like to gain some momentum, it can be expected that it will be a thrilling contest between the two and Punjab Kings may as well, because of their in form players and team combinations, emerge victorious.
