SRH vs PBKS – Match Preview
SRH resumed the IPL 2021 season with a disappointing performance against DC. This was to be expected from a team stuck at the bottom. PBKS also has reasons to worry after narrowly losing to RR in the first match since the restart. The SRH vs PBKS prediction would focus on the game between these two strugglers.
SRH vs PBKS – Predicted Playing XIs
SRH come into the match with a single win in the last eight matches. The team is clearly very low on confidence. It does not help that players like David Warner did not have a great return to the IPL action in the match against DC. Warner is the biggest hope for SRH and to see a mediocre performance from their top asset is a blow to the confidence levels as well.
PBKS certainly have a couple of positives compared to SRH and the team can still qualify for the play-offs. The form of openers Mayank Agarwal and KL Rahul is a positive to the team. In other areas, though, PBKS are in a quite poor situation. None of the players are able to add a lot of strength to the batting line-up. On the bowling front, there are positives like Mohammad Shami being in form, but he needs to be supported well by the likes of Ishan Porel and Deepak Hooda.
Let us take a look at the odds for the match:

The SRH vs PBKS head to head shows a very obvious skew in favour of SRH, who have been able to win a majority of the matches against the club. However, most of these victories came during 2015, 2016, and 2017 seasons. Since then, the Hyderabad vs Punjab game has been very difficult to call by SRH vs PBKS match prediction.
SRH vs PBKS Match Prediction & Betting Tips
SRH are practically playing for pride as the team are out of contention to have any form of success in the IPL 2021 predictions. Every form of the game has been a disappointment for SRH and this will simply help PBKS stroll to a win – even if PBKS are not outstanding.
Mohammed Shami came up with a decent three wicket haul against RR and he was one of the top bowlers for PBKS apart from Arshdeep Singh. Shami is a once again expected to dominate the proceedings against a subpar SRH batting line-up. If Warner is out of the picture in the early stages, Mohammed Shami has the potential to create havoc in the middle and lower order.
Mayank Agarwal was the top scorer for PBKS in the win over RR. He managed to come up with a healthy 67 runs from just 43 balls. The 30-year-old has been showing top form even before the pause. There is no reason to see why Mayank Agarwal could capitalise on the disappointing bowling line-up put up by SRH in recent games.
