After winning the toss, Punjab Kings chose to bat first against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Both sides experienced many changes. PBKS gave debuts to Fabien Allen and Moises Henriques, while SRH gave Kedar Jadhav his first cap and brought in the experienced Kane Williamson.
Both teams have had a weak start to the IPL 2021 season. With one win in three games, PBKS is in second-to-last place. SRH, on the other hand, have yet to make an impression and are actually at the bottom of the table. After winning the toss, Punjab Kings chose to bat first. After 12 overs, PBKS were reeling to a score of 66/5.
Henriques falls for 14. A rather wild charge down the wicket, trying to create room to go inside-out over covers, but the ball turned sharply away from him. Bairstow did the rest.Fabian Allen is out to bat at number 8. PBKS are 84/6 after 14 overs. Sharma finishes with 2/24 in 4 overs.
