Sunrisers Hyderabad and Punjab Kings face off each other in match 37 of IPL 2021 in the second match of the double-header on September 25. The match will be played in Sharjah. Both teams lost their first games of the UAE leg. While Punjab’s loss was heartbreaking, Hyderabad lost to the commanding performance of Delhi Capitals. Another loss for both these teams would mean that they are close to not qualifying for the playoffs.
Sunrisers Hyderabad are placed last on the points table with anet run-rate of -0.689. They have lost seven out of their first eight games and thoroughly outplayed in all their losses. They need to get back to winning ways and more importantly needs to find ways to win. David Warner needs to get back amongst the runs and the likes of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Rashid Khan amongst the wickets.
Punjab Kings also needs to get back to winning ways. More importantly, they should find a way out not to lose matches from winning positions. Their previous game against Rajasthan Royals was a perfect example of their habit of leaving it too late for a win.
The match will be played in Sharjah which means there is plenty of runs in store for the batters. The bowlers meanwhile are expected to have a tough game.
