Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Punjab Kings T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2024

Match 69 of the 2024 Indian Premier League sees Sunrisers Hyderabad and Punjab Kings go head to head on Sunday afternoon in the penultimate group stage match. Sunrisers are confirmed to reach the play-offs whereas Punjab Kings were eliminated after Match 58. Read on as we preview this match. The fixture gets underway at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Uppal, Hyderabad at 15:30 local time on May 19th.

Although they would have been disappointed to not get on the field in Thursday’s abandonment without a ball bowled, Sunrisers should be refreshed and well rested ahead of this match. They have taken a positive approach throughout this campaign and we expect to see them get another win in this clash.

With their elimination confirmed a long time ago, Punjab Kings have nothing to lose ahead of this final group stage game. They have ended the tournament in stronger form than they started but they will be without key players against one of the best teams so this will be a tough assignment.

SRH Team News & Playing 11

SRH Team News

After not facing or delivering one ball across Thursday’s game, it will be 11 days since Sunrisers last played by the time this match begins on Sunday. With play-off qualification confirmed, there will be a temptation to rest players but we expect Sunrisers to select their best XI as they push for a top two finish.

SRH Key Players

  • Travis Head- the 30 year old left-hander was not in the side for Sunrisers Hyderabad’s opening game of the season but he has since become one of the stars of the tournament.
  • Abhishek Sharma- the young all-rounder has eclipsed Heinrich Klaasen in the Sunrisers batting line-up in IPL 2024. He will take the attack to Punjab Kings from the opening delivery of his innings.
  • Bhuvneshwar Kumar- the 34 year old right arm fast medium opening bowler has added another 11 wickets to his IPL tally this season and he has taken six of them across the last three matches.
  • Pat Cummins- the Australian had shows signs of fatigue after conceding 47+ runs in three of his last five matches but he will certainly have benefited from the rest before this game.

SRH Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Glenn Phillips, Umran Malik, T Natarajan, Mayank Agarwal, Washington Sundar

Glenn Phillips could be an option to come into the team in either innings as an impact player all-rounder but we expect T Natarajan to be introduced in the fielding innings in place of Abhishek Sharma.

SRH Team Form

After Thursday’s abandonment, Sunrisers Hyderabad have now lost just one of their last four games.

SRH Predicted Playing 11

Abhishek Sharma, Travis Head, Nitish Kumar Reddy, Heinrich Klaasen (wk), Abdul Samad, Shahbaz Ahmed, Sanvir Singh, Pat Cummins (c), Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jaydev Unadkat, Vijayakanth Viyaskanth

PBKS Team News & Playing 11

PBKS Team News

There will certainly be two changes for Punjab Kings ahead of this match from their win over Rajasthan Royals with Jonny Bairstow and Sam Curran now back in England ahead of the T20 World Cup. And with Shikhar Dhawan and Kagiso both still injured, the captaincy of the Kings is up for grabs!

PBKS Key Players

  • Rilee Rossouw- the South African has not been at his best throughout this tournament but once he gets going he is capable of winning a match single-handedly.
  • Jitesh Sharma- the wicket-keeper batter has not been able to follow-up his impressive season from last year but he could get an opportunity further up the order in this match.
  • Harshal Patel- the right-arm fast medium India international has been written off on many occasions but he keeps coming back and comes into this game with 77 wickets across the last four IPLs.
  • Arshdeep Singh- the left-arm swing bowler will be off to the T20 World Cup for India later this month and took 4/29 in the last head to head against Sunrisers.

PBKS Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Atharva Taide, Vidwath Kaverappa, Tanay Thyagarajan, Harpreet Bhatia, Shashank Singh

We expect to see Arshdeep Singh used only during the fielding innings with all-rounder Atharva Taide likely to be the player to come in during the batting innings.

PBKS Team Form

Punjab Kings had lost two in a row before their win over Rajasthan but have now won three of their last five.

PBKS Predicted Playing 11

Prabhsimran Singh, Harpreet Singh, Jitesh Sharma (wk), Rilee Rossouw, Ashutosh Sharma, Rishi Dhawan, Harpreet Brar, Harshal Patel, Nathan Ellis (c), Rahul Chahar, Arshdeep Singh

Who will win Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Punjab Kings T20 Match?

Although Punjab Kings got an impressive and surprise win over Rajasthan Royals in their last game, Sunrisers Hyderabad have been standout performers this year and we have them as the top team ahead of this match.

🏆 SRH vs PBKS Prediction

After seeing their last game abandoned without a ball being bowled, we expect Sunrisers Hyderabad to come out all guns blazing in this match, particularly as there is a top two place potentially up for grabs. Punjab Kings secured a very good win against Rajasthan Royals in their last clash but we do not think their XI will be competitive enough in this match. Our prediction is for Sunrisers Hyderabad to win.
