SRH bank on familiarity
Punjab Kings have better odds heading into their first fixture in Chennai, but it’s not as easy as it seems on paper despite Sunrisers Hyderabad’s terrible start to the season. PBKS have had a confusing leg in Mumbai and in Chennai, on the slow and low wicket, they will be challenged. They have great odds of 1.76 to beat Sunrisers Hyderabad in Chennai.
Sunrisers Hyderabad will bank on the familiarity they have developed in the last three games with the Chepauk surface to beat a strong Punjab Kings side. They lost all three games, but would have a hang of the conditions now. As they face Punjab, they are in a better position to win despite odds of 1.95 to beat them.

Recent records level despite overall numbers
Overall, Sunrisers Hyderabad have won 11 of the 16 head to head contests against Punjab, but the recent record reflects that the latter has managed to come to grips with the challenge Hyderabad poses. In the last three seasons, both sides have won three games apiece.
RECOMMENDED BET: SRH have a better hang of the surface and have odds of 1.95 to beat PBKS.
The 2021 season has begun in odd fashion for both these teams and a head to head encounter is just what each would be eyeing to break those shackles.

Keep an eye on…
Rahul’s approach: KL Rahul was in the firing line again despite a half-century on his birthday as the low strike-rate meant Punjab just about reached a par score. Will Rahul stick to his approach in Chennai or will he up his tempo?
Rashid Khan: Rashid Khan surprisingly has a few unfavorable match-ups in this contest and that will scare Sunrisers primarily because the onus is on the leggie to give them a stable base to operate from with the ball.
TIP: Hyderabad’s opening duo of Warner and Bairstow is among the best in the league and they have odds of 1.90 to build the better partnership.
