Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Punjab Kings head-to-head

SRH and PBKS have faced each other 19 times in the past. Sunrisers Hyderabad dominate the head-to-head record with 13 wins compared to Punjab Kings’ six.

When the two sides met earlier this season in April, SRH secured a comfortable seven-wicket victory spurred on by Umran Malik’s 4/28 bowling figures. SRH will, however, miss the services of captain Kane Williamson in the upcoming match with the Kiwi ace having travelled back to New Zealand for the birth of his child.

Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Punjab Kings top picks

SRH: Young opener Abhishek Sharma (393 runs in 13 innings) and veteran Rahul Tripathi (383 in 13 matches) have carried the SRH batting line-up this season and will look to end the season with good performances.

Pacer Umran Malik has been the pick of the bowlers for SRH and is the team’s top wicket taker this season with 21 scalps to his name. Having already troubled the PBKS batting line-up earlier this season, the 22-year-old will back himself for a sizeable haul yet again on Sunday.

PBKS: With Williamson missing, Liam Livingstone will need to play a key part in the Punjab Kings’ middle order this Sunday. The Englishman has been in good form this season, having already accounted for 388 runs in 13 outings this term.

South African speedster Kagiso Rabada has spearheaded the PBKS bowling line-up this season and boasts exceptional figures of 22 wickets from 12 matches played. Rabada will be PBKS’ key man in Sunday’s match.

Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Punjab Kings IPL 2022 prediction

Sunrisers Hyderabad have dominated Punjab Kings on the head-to-head front and have already beaten them once this season. However, SRH’s recent form has been underwhelming with just one win in their last five matches, which incidentally came in their last outing against bottom-placed Mumbai Indians.

Comparatively, Punjab Kings have done better in their recent games, winning two of their last five. Recent form and the absence of Williamson from the SRH team make PBKS the odds on favourites to win Sunday’s encounter.
