Match no. 37 of the Indian Premiere League today will feature Sunrisers Hyderabad squaring off against Punjab Kings in Sharjah at 7:30 pm. The bottom ranked Sunrisers have just won one game out of their eight matches while the 7th seeded Kings have tasted victory only on three occasions in their nine outings.
While the Punjab side has been extremely unlucky and has failed to notch up victories from commanding positions, Hyderabad has tried everything, including the change in leadership, but couldn't turn the tides in their favor.
David Warner's poor form and the absence of Jonny Bairstow have added to the team's miseries. Besides, Sherfane Rutherford, Bairstow's replacement, has left the IPL bubble to return home due to his father's demise to serve as another setback for the team.
As far as the pitch report is concerned, the Sharjah Cricket Association Ground provides a neutral track where both the departments are expected to get a good amount of help from the surface. Spinners can get going in the middle overs.
Free Press Journal conducted a poll on Twitter ahead of the match which will commence at 7:30 pm today. The poll was conducted to find out which of the two teams will win the battle on field today.
Poll results show that there are more possibilities of SRH winning the game against PBKS as 80% of cricket fans have voted for Kane Williamson led SRH while only 20% have voted in favor of PBKS.
