IPL 2022 – Punjab Kings vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Match 28 Dream11 Predictions, Lineups and more

Sunrisers Hyderabad and Punjab Kings have a little advantage over the other teams in terms of NRR among the half-dozen teams who are now deadlocked at six points each in IPL 2022. On momentum, Hyderabad would be expected to do much better on the back of a hat-trick of victories – hoping to make it four as they enter the Sunday (April 17) double-header against Punjab, who have bounced between highs and lows so far.

A new look Punjab’s aggressive batting approach has been the foundation of their early success. They packed their top-half with a mix of power-hitters, including Shikhar Dhawan, Mayank Agarwal, and Jonny Bairstow, as well as the reputation and muscle of Liam Livingstone, Shahrukh Khan, and Odean Smith. This aggressive approach has also served them well, with PBKS scoring 180 points or more in four of their five games so far.

According to their own admission, Hyderabad took some time to settle in, but the reversal has been amazing since. They’ve put the disappointment of their first two defeats behind them and collected key points against two of their archrivals, CSK and KKR. The bowling team has gelled effectively, very by T Natarajan, who has been equally effective with the new ball and at death, and even in the injury-forced absence of Washington Sundar. Marco Jansen has been a revelation, with his variations challenging even the greatest batters.

The match promises to be an incredible bout and we can’t wait to see who comes out on top.

Punjab Kings vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Match 28 – Players to watch

 

Rahul Tripathi

 

He has become an absolute sensation for the Sunrisers and is one of the players who has led the comeback for the team who finds itself on a winning run. So far in the tournament, he has amassed 171 runs from 4 games and we expect him to keep this form going in the coming games as well.

 

T Natarajan

 

With Rahul Tripathi bossing the batting, the bowling comeback has been spearheaded by T Natarajan. He seems to have found the sweet spot in his bowling and has now become an absolute headache for the opposition. With 11 wickets in 5 games, he is going great guns and is not far off from the purple cap race.

 

Liam Livingstone

 

The Englishman has become an absolute talisman for the Punjab Kings and his presence has brought a sense of calm in the middle order. So far in the tournament, he has amassed 164 runs from 5 matches and he is very handy with the ball as well.

 

Rahul Chahar

 

He was the solution for the spin bowling department and the best part is that he has hit the ground running, having picked up 7 wickets from 5 matches. In the previous match against the Mumbai Indians, he was hammered for some runs, but that will only make him bounce back harder.
